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.

Great encourager!

My high school daughter needed someone to reteach concepts slower and encourage her and Brenda did a fabulous job! Later in the evening, I find my daughter has spent 2 hours on homework of which she has NEVER done! What a perfect match!

Ms. Brenda is great for my son!

My son enjoyed his first tutoring class with Ms. Brenda. He says she explained it to him to where he could understand it. I think he is going to be great in Advanced Algebra II Honors.
