I've always been drawn to sharing my love of learning with others. In high school I started tutoring math, English, and Spanish and looked forward to the days I could help other students who were struggling. Even though I was able to succeed without one-on-one help, I often thought about the ways that crowded classrooms and one-size-fits-all teaching had failed other students.
When I begin tutoring a new student, I often hear them repeating the phrase, "I can't." It's always a joy to hear this phrase disappear a few weeks into tutoring. I believe my role as an educator is to help my students see that success is much closer than they think, that taking the extra time they need is something to be proud of, and that as they demonstrate their own strengths, they will build trust in their own abilities. I strive to approach all challenges with patience, confidence, and nonjudgment.
I double majored in English and Psychology and graduated summa cum laude from Clark University. I specialize in reading and writing for grades 7-12 and in college writing. I'm especially passionate about Shakespeare and classic literature and I believe that improving reading skills fosters creativity, empathy, and lifelong learning. In my spare time, I write music and poetry and draw realistic portraits.

As a parent of a 7 grade boy, I have been looking for a ELA teacher who can help my son to improve his writing skills. We also hoped to find a teacher who can inject a good taste in the appreciation of dynamic and beauty of the language. We feel lucky and are very satisfied with Bridgette. She is very patient and motivating. And her teaching approach is systematic while tailored for my son's need. In addition, she is a good communicator to parents, providing a detailed class feedback note after each class... Highly recommended.
She helped Lundon develop ideas and then put them into sentences. Our first lesson with her inspired Lundon quite a bit, which is what we're looking for!
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.
