About Brigitte

I have always had a love for teaching and coaching, whether it be playing school with my cousins as a child, helping out in a dance class, or teaching in my own classroom. As a graduate of Rutgers University for my undergraduate (psychology) and master's degrees (elementary and special education), I have had the opportunity to explore many areas of education. I have taught in classrooms that range from Kindergarten to 5th grade and have worked with a diverse group of students including those receiving special education, basic skills, and English Language Learners.

Based on my previous experience, I specialize in working with elementary age students, including those entering kindergarten. I have a plethora of strategies that can be applied to students who are struggling, working at grade level or those craving a challenge. I aim to have each session be one that is challenging, but not overwhelming for the student, providing them with a just right amount of support for them to excel. I can develop a specialized plan to meet the needs of your child.

I look forward to hearing from you, and hope that together we can help your child achieve his or her dreams!
