Merrimack College (English, Spanish)
My Name is Brandy and teaching is my passion. I am an understanding and easygoing person and I get along great with just about everyone. Aside from teaching, I love to travel. While in college I studied abroad in Bilbao, Spain. Shortly after graduating I decided to combine my two passions and set out to travel to Santiago, Chile where I taught English at a technical university for an academic year. While working at the University, I also did some tutoring jobs on the side. English is becoming much more prevalent in Chile, and many Chileans haven't had the opportunity to learn English growing up, so tutoring is currently a very popular way for these students to learn English for their jobs.
As both a tutor and a teacher in another country, I have learned true patience in helping my students learn. I know that different students have different learning techniques and that students should be treated as individuals. What I love most about tutoring is that the students who take up tutoring are really trying to make themselves better; whether it be to improve their language skills, writing or reading skills, etc. I love to be able to help people become more comfortable with whatever it is they feel they need to work on. I fell in love with the one-on-one time that tutoring offers, and I really feel that it is such a rewarding way to learn more about something.
I have a bachelor's degree in both English and Spanish and a TEFL/TESOL certification which certifies me to teach English anywhere around the world. I have experience teaching in another country and I've worked individually with students on English conversation, English grammar, English literature (including analysis), and proofreading essays.

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.
