About Brenda

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.
