I assist parents who invest in their children's future by assuring their academic success today. I have worked as a tutor for 17 years. I am able to tutor all elementary level subjects. I also tutor Algebra, Geometry, English [Language Arts], Writing and Study Skills. I have worked ten years with special needs students and I am knowledgeable of diverse teaching methods and use this knowledge to differentiate my instruction to meet each student's individual need.

My philosophy is to facilitate student learning by using a progressive questioning method where the student communicates effectively what he is learning and then building from there; each time questioning for comprehension. This enhances not only comprehension but also communication and critical thinking skills. I look forward to serving your tutoring needs!

Knowledgeable and patient!

Brenda is kind, thoughtful, patient and truly understands what we hope to accomplish. She is helping not only grow our student in his path of education but also to gain more confidence in his day to day life. Our student has never looked at school as something that could be fun and Brenda is well on the way to changing his outlook. We are very grateful.

Recommend her with confidence! She is very patient and has the skills and aptitude for teaching, especially young children. My daughter is now more excited than ever about reading since working with Ms. Brenda.

Made her want to read

This was our first session. My struggling reader came away saying that Ms. W "made her want to read." That's a big step already.

Thank you so much. I feel joy from this and I look forward to growing the enthusiasm.

Mature and realistic with my daughter.

Brenda made the first session a fun experience, and didn't put pressure on Nicole. She is very professional and pleasant.
