About Brigid

I have taught in middle school, high school and college, and have many years tutoring experience. I am patient with my students, and try to always adapt my lessons to their learning style and academic needs.

I have near native fluency in Spanish and have lived in a number of Latin American countries and Spain. I also speak German, having spent a year living in Germany with a Fulbright Scholarship.

I can assist with study skills, writing, reading comprehensions, phonics, decoding, test prep, math and Spanish.
