About Brenda


Bio

I have other thirty-five years of teaching/tutoring experience beginning in 1977 as the manager/tutor of the Stanford Tutoring Service in Palo Alto, California.

There are few things more gratifying to me than the look of satisfaction in the eyes of a student for whom the math mystery has been revealed! I have over 70 hours on Wyzant and each new student, each new challenge, brings me tremendous satisfaction!

I am passionate about learning and about sharing that passion with students.

As a mother of five and an instructor to at least 50 children over my life time, I have guided students in developing study skills for many years. I have seen this as a very natural outgrowth of the academic support I have provided. Study skills are somewhat subject specific and I would plan to present guidelines based on the particular academic area.

Kind and patient tutor who knows her stuff!

My teenage son clicked with Brenda right away. He later commented that Brenda explains concepts to him in a way he can understand. We are so glad we found her!

Excellent Tutor

Brenda is so patient, kind and knowledgeable. She has been a huge blessing in my daughter’s life. She has greatly helped her in her college Chemistry 2 class. I would highly recommend her!

Janette, 27 lessons with Brenda

Great Start

Brenda is tutoring both of our children- Sofia is 13 and is in 8th grader and they’re spending time on Math. Rafa is 9 and attends 4 grade and they’re working on all of his assignments across subjects.

Jarred, 9 lessons with Brenda

Knowledgeable and Patient

Brenda was patient, kind, and a clear communicator. She was able to clearly articulate Geometry ideas that our daughter was struggling with before her quiz. She thoroughly understood the material and was able to quickly dive in and support our daughter's learning.

Polite, punctual, reliable, and my daughter enjoys working with her.

Brenda has been an excellent tutor so far. She is assisting my daughter with geometry tutoring and we will soon be moving into biology and study/test-taking skills. We highly recommend Brenda.

Brenda is very good at connecting with children. My granddaughter is struggling with math and Brenda has done a great job introducing new ways to study and enjoy Math. My granddaughter looks forward to her sessions with Brenda!
