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!

Great teacher!

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.

Siham, 4 lessons with 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.

Alicia, 8 lessons with Brenda
Tutor responded:

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.

Deborah , 17 lessons with Brenda

Best Tutor!

She is very patient and kind. She works very diligently with my children and loves them dearly. My son was struggling and possibly being retained with her help he made A/B Honor Roll!!

Kimberly, 72 lessons with Brenda

Great tutor!

Brenda has been a fantastic tutor. She is helping our first grader understand how improving his reading makes everything much easier for him. Homework is no longer a 3 hour battle and his understanding of his work has increased greatly. Brenda has been amazing and has been willing to work with us to meet our needs.

Lea, 26 lessons with Brenda

Patient and challenges the kids

Brenda works with both my 11 and 14 year old sons on Language Arts and Writing. She is patient and understanding, and allows them to work at their own pace, but still challenges them. She has a very calm personality which is important for my special needs son.

Kathy, 9 lessons with Brenda

Great tutor

Ms. Brenda is an awesome tutor. She's patient and understanding and really helped to enthuse my 11 year old about learning. She breaks things down in such a easy way to help your child understand the fundamentals. Thanks, Ms. Brenda!

Tutor responded:

Thank you. It was a pleasure working with A'Shala. Seeing her improve in her academics and grow an enthusiasm for her learning was a reward beyond measure.

Very patient.

She takes her time and explains the process of teaching algebra to my daughter. If any one needs a tutor I will definitely choose Mrs. Brenda.
