About Brady


Bio

I'm a 37-year-old American English teacher. After graduating with a BA in English (2006), I moved to South Korea and spent six years teaching English in private academies and to adult business clients. In 2012, I completed an MA in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) with a 4.0 GPA. In the spring of 2015, I left Korea and began private tutoring in the United States.

I'm a 37-year-old American English teacher. After graduating with a BA in English (2006), I moved to South Korea and spent six years teaching English in private academies and to adult business clients. In 2012, I completed an MA in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) with a 4.0 GPA. In the spring of 2015, I left Korea and began private tutoring in the United States.

I have the most experience and skill in teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in an international classroom. I also have many years of experience with ACT, SAT, AP, and TOEFL test prep. I particularly enjoy tutoring for tests because I known the anxiety these tests create all too well.

I am a very laid-back and communicative teacher and try to get students to enjoy their studies primarily. At the same time, I am a professional who does not neglect the fundamentals. Every student is an individual who needs an individualized program. My motto for learning is, "Do whatever works for you." I can give you knowledge, strategies, and encouragement, but you alone will make or break you.

When I left the U.S. in 2006 to see a bit of the world, I didn't know how wonderful the teaching profession would be. Even on the worst days, I love being a teacher. The art of communicating difficult concepts in comprehensible ways is my life's pursuit.

Great experience for Santiago

My nephew came from overseas for a summer vacation and we thought that would be great to get him some English classes. We found Brady who was the most engaging and experienced professor. Santiago felt so confortable and exited since day one. Brady's technique is different and special that we noticed major progress in Santiago after couple of sessions. Brady uses relevant and interesting topics of discussion combined with fun interaction. Thank you Brady

Very professional and nice ESL tutor!

Brady is teaching my 8 years old son who has very limited English vocabulary. I see my son making good progress in the completed 2 lessons. I am amazed by the professional teaching methods and the fun lessons. Thank you so much Brady!

Dennis, 17 lessons with Brady

Knowledgeable and helpful teacher

Helped son understand and implement simple and effective strategies to better improve his ACT score. Patiently explained misunderstandings about the reading section and the English section. Seems to have a wonderful mastery of the way the test works and how to instruct individual students

Alison, 5 lessons with Brady

Very knowledgeable and experienced

Thank you so much for your diligent evaluation, my daughter was enjoying with your session very much. I trust your study plan and believe that Claire will be more confident when taking ACT test next year.

Great teacher with a lot of patience and communication skills

Brady is tutoring my 5th grade son for his reading and writing. Although he is new to Wyzant, he has so much teaching experience. He understood the goal very well, and he got to work on it from the first minute of his session. He is very organized, resourceful teacher, and he knows how to communicate with kids. My son really enjoyed his teaching and apparently learned a lot. We just finished our first session but we felt very satisfied and love to continue.
