Knowledgeable ....

Brigid was helping Justin to organize his writing piece together using graphic organizer, which is a good way to help writer at his age 11. Then Justin started to learn to add details and expand his ideas when doing categorize and organize the writing into groups such as location, and time etc... Look like a great start Brigid. Brigid is very knowledgeable And I hope Justin will learn so much from her. Thank you for all your help!!!!

Phuong, 5 lessons with Brigid

First lesson great

Brigid was prepared, well-spoken, and patient with my parents on their first ESL lesson. They're excited and looking forward to many more.

Dmitry, 9 lessons with Brigid

Very patient and explains everything to me.

I had my first writing lesson with Brigid and it went wonderfully. She took her time with me going over different strategies I can use to help me get my thoughts down on paper before I begin writing. She showed me a get way to outline so I keep my thoughts focused on my writing topic.
