I am a certified bilingual Social Studies and Spanish language teacher and tutor with more than 20 years of experience. As a graduate of Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, I have a rock solid foundation in American history, Geography, Government, Politics, and Latin American Studies, including the Spanish language.

I will work with you as we parade through the wide array of primary and secondary source documents presented to you by your classroom teachers. I am well versed in analyzing the many ways history is recorded, such as through the arts, photography, diary entries, storytelling, maps, advertisements, documentaries as well as official government speeches, letters, interviews, and reports.

I aim to help you find the core connections between primary source documents detailing the lives of people and their experiences, their ideas and struggles as they interact with their own community and outside communities, governmental institutions, economic forces, and Mother Nature.

Working through the Socratic method together, you will reach those "aha!" moments and translate them to your paper or in a creative format. My goal is to engage you in such active, open-minded, open-hearted dialogue that it inspires your own freedom of thought and expression, activating your ability to think critically. My belief is that academic play, the kind we will engage in during our tutoring sessions, will lead to the enlightenment of the whole.

Reach out to set up a time for lessons if you would like to approach Spanish language and Social Studies learning from beauty-inspired curiosity and a desire to engage in the Socratic method. Together, we can make these documents come to life, whether presented in your Spanish or History class. Let's break it down together!

History

American History,

American History

When working with my American History students, from middle and high school to college, my core focus is finding core connections between primary source documents detailing the lives of people and their experiences, their ideas and struggles as they interact with their own community and outside communities, governmental institutions, economic forces, and Mother Nature through the Socratic method. My next mission is then getting those "aha!" moments on paper or in a creative format allowing for freedom of thought and expression. I care about my student's ability to think critically and share their findings with others so that they can engage in fruitful, open-hearted, and open-minded dialogue. My belief is that such academic play leads to the enlightenment of the whole.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

My daughter looks forward to her weekly sessions with Brenda. Spanish at school is on the easier side, and her lessons offer an opportunity to work ahead and be more challenged. Brenda is nice and tailors the lessons to my daughter's interests -- highly recommend!

Candace, 15 lessons with Brenda

Highly recommend Brenda

Brenda works with her students to craft tutoring sessions to the student's needs. With her help, my daughter was able to improve her grade in AP Comparative Government and get a better understanding of the material and how to best study for exams. My daughter will use her again if needed and I recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.
