About Brett

With 5 years of writing tutor training and experience at Drexel University's Writing Center, where I also served as Assistant to the Director of the Writing Center, I come to you as a down-to-earth, personable tutor with academic and private-sector experience. After earning an M.F.A. in Poetry and Poetry in Translation from Drew University's Caspersen School of Graduate Studies (where I was awarded the Dean's MFA in Poetry Prize for excellence), I went on to become a News & Content writer for a marketing agency in downtown Chicago. Currently, I am a Managing Editor overseeing and training editors, writers and creative teams.

It would be my pleasure to work with you and your child in building writing and critical thinking acumen, reading comprehension and essay composition skills.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

With a B.A. in English and an M.F.A. in Poetry, 5 years of tutoring experience, I embrace the Freire Method of student inquiry (what could be considered the Socratic Method). Put more simply, I don't just disseminate information top-down to my students. I ask pertinent questions that lead them to formulate their own questions and answers. The lessons my students learn stick more often when they are actively asking and answering their own questions then by memorizing or regurgitating a teacher's knowledge. They have their own knowledge pools and I leverage that knowledge and experience to make lessons relevant, impactful and memorable.
