About Brenda

I have always had a love of teaching because I believe that the ony reason to know something is to share it with others. After obtaining my Bachelor's degree in French and Philosophy, I immediately began to pursue my interest in tutoring, and I have over 25 years of experience successfully tutoring students. The biggest pleasure is to see the students grow, watch their grades improve and help them to realize their full personal potential and goals!!

My area of expertise is tutoring French and English to improve grades in school, or to help prepare students for ACT, SAT, or GRE examinations. The usual age group of students I serve is high school or college. My usual method of teaching is to guide the student through homework from the curriculum currently in place at school, and reinforce the material when needed with original exercises relevant to the coursework.

Open, good communication is the key. I have an approach to teaching that encourages the student to challenge oneself, while at the same time making the student feel completely comfortable to ask questions and utilize my knowledge as a guide to discovering the answers together.

I am happy to travel to a location close to the student; usually we would meet in a quiet, comfortable space such as the local public library, etc. I am flexible with time, and although I would prefer a 24 hour cancelation notification, I am open to making up missed sessions at another time of convenience.

Prior to our first meeting, I will email the student to provide a chance to work out details for the session and allow the student to ask me any questions as well.

I look forward to hearing from you and beginning our journey of success together!
