About Brenda

I love helping students learn! With over 25 years' experience as a teacher, tutor, typist, and proofreader, I can definitely assist you or your student! As a college-level English and essay writing tutor, a high school English and essay writing tutor, a middle school teacher and tutor, and an elementary school teacher and tutor, I have had experience teaching a variety of subjects.

Helping students improve their grades by helping them find and correct mistakes that could cost them points on their papers is something that I enjoy doing. When a student understands an assignment, I enjoy the excitement and relief that they experience. I love to help students succeed and realize that they can understand English grammar.

I currently tutor college-level English and essay writing and high school English, literature and essay writing. In addition, I teach English, writing, reading, spelling, vocabulary, literature, history, science, and math to middle and high school students on a daily basis, and I have several years experience teaching those same subjects in elementary classrooms. In addition to teaching these subjects, I proofread many papers using Turabian, APA, MLA, and Vyhmeister formats to help master's degree students, bachelor's degree students, high school students, and elementary students improve their grades. Another one of my proficiencies is helping students improve their writing skills and learn how to write in a variety of formats. Finally, study skills is a subject that I have experience teaching, and I can help you learn better ways to study all subjects.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary education, and I taught second grade for five years, and fifth grade for two years. In addition to those classes, I taught sixth grade history and seventh grade study skills. I currently tutor elementary students in English and writing, and I also teach all subject areas to a sixth grader.

Elementary Math

I have taught math skills to elementary students of all grade levels. I can assist your child with number recognition and memorization of facts for the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I can also help your child learn to solve problems of many types including place value, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, geometry, word problems, multi-step problems, measurement, and positive and negative numbers.

Elementary Science

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary education. I have taught every elementary grade level over the years. I teach all school subjects on the elementary level. I enjoy science. I currently tutor and teach elementary students, middle school students, high school students, and college students.

English

I teach and tutor English on a daily basis. I work with elementary students, middle school students, high school students, and college students and assist them with grammar rules, punctuation rules, parts of speech, and sentence construction.

Grammar

I currently tutor English grammar and essay writing to elementary students, middle school students, high school students, and college students. I love teaching English grammar and helping students learn how to correctly use it.

Handwriting

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I taught handwriting to second and fifth grade students, and then I taught my own children to print and write in cursive when I homeschooled them from preschool through sixth grade.

Phonics

My experience teaching phonics and reading to second graders along with tutoring students who were struggling with reading will be a valuable asset to your company. I have a Bachelor's degree in elementary education. I taught my own children to read using a phonics program. I enjoy teaching phonics and helping students discover the joy of reading.

Piano

I began playing the piano as a child, and I continued to take lessons in college and for a short time as an adult. Whether playing the piano for relaxation, playing to accompany singers, playing special music in church, or playing for other people's enjoyment, I enjoy music and the joy it brings to people. I have participated in music competitions, music evaluations, and ministered in churches by playing the piano since I was young. Learning to play the piano is a skill that can enhance anyone's life.

Proofreading

Proofreading descriptive essays, research papers, stories, poems, argumentative papers, business letters, personal statements, and other documents is something that I enjoy doing. I have been a proofreader for many years. With my knowledge of English grammar and punctuation along with my expertise in writing, I can help you perfect your document. I am experienced in APA, MLA, Turabian,and Vyhmeister documentation styles. I have experience proofreading for elementary students, middle school students, high school students, college students, and adults. My students include many learning English as a second language.

Reading

I teach reading by teaching phonics and helping students master sight words. Learning vowels, consonants, and blends to assist in word recognition is just one part of learning to read. Reading comprehension skills are also essential from the literal recall of facts to the higher level skills of interpretation, inferential comprehension, appreciation, and critical thinking.

Study Skills

I help my students improve their work by encouraging them to study better. I taught a class entitled study skills to seventh graders in the past, and I work to help all of my students stay organized. Learning how to study is essential for success in school.

Writing

Over the years I assisted many students with the steps of writing. Prewriting, writing the thesis statement, writing the rough draft, revising, proofreading, and publishing are all steps that are involved in the completion of a quality paper. I have taught students from young children to adults how to write different types of writing projects including research papers, persuasive writing, stories, biographies, letter writing, how-to essays, and informational essays.
