About Brenda

Hello Parents and Students:

Creating plans of study for students in a effort to render their highest academic success is my expertise. Before becoming an academic coach, I was a volunteer tutor for over ten years for grades second through seventh grades. Over the last three years, I have tutored elementary through high school students in study skills which has enabled students to better organize their studies. I have found a need for my services in other areas such as critical thinking skills, homework management, reading comprehension, test taking strategies, as well as, focus and attention strategies. I also provide consultations with families on ways to assure the best academic success for their students through recommending school, community or statewide available programs and scholarships. As early as junior high school, your student's future educational goals can be identified and support provided in preparation for a trade career or college.

As a certified teacher and M.B.A, I have taught students in the areas of business to include sales, marketing, management, personal finance and entrepreneurship. I have over thirty years of corporate and small business ownership experience. I love teaching, tutoring and academic coaching because it gives me the opportunity to identify how a student learns and to create a system which assures a student's academic success.

If your student is: Disorganized and struggling to keep up? Confused about the route to success and easily distracted? Enjoying some success but capable of achieving even more?

Contact me! My innovative lesson plans and activities makes learning fun!

I love what I do and it shows. Recently I navigated my students to a one grade increase after tutoring them over one semester. A few of my students have gone on to secure full academic scholarships from leading colleges and universities.

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.

Business

As a NC provisional certified teacher of Business Administration, I have taught Business Management, Marketing and Personal Finance on the high school level. I am in the process of completing my full certification.

ESL/ESOL

I have tutored students from various cultural backgrounds in English as a second language. Within my expertise of study skills, many students seek enrichment in spelling and reading. Therefore, I am skilled in teaching students to navigate between their native language and the English language with ease.

Marketing

I possess a M.B.A with a minor in Marketing. I have over thirty years of sales and marketing experience, owning a small business, and working in the consumer products industry. I have taught marketing on the high school level and presently am working on teacher certification within this area.

Study Skills

I became an academic coach four years ago to help students navigate the educational process, with the goal of becoming a better student. I help students understand their learning styles, which in return gives each student a roadmap as to how they learn best. I work with students of all academic levels and strengths. A student may be experiencing great academic success but feel they may lack the organizational skills to operate effectively on the college level. Also, if a student is struggling socially, there can be a negative impact academically. I coach students by preparing them in gaining focus and test taking strategies for entrance exams to colleges and universities. I provide information to parents who are interested in learning ways to motivate their student to learn. My qualifications are my educational background, which includes a master's degree, a teacher's license and my experience as a academic coach. My passion is to tutor students through easy, practical lesson plans on ways to become the best students they can be in an effort to achieve their goals. I truly enjoy working with parents and students!
