About Brandy

I am a 13 year veteran teacher with 4 years of tutoring experience. I began this journey as an Instructional Assistant in a Special Education class. Within a few months, I was asking to be the long-term substitute in a general education class for 6th grade. After I completed the school year, I was hired as the teacher in a middle school for students with emotional disabilities. During my time there, I noticed that most of my students were missing the fundamentals of reading and math. After many years of implementing basic interventions in the middle school setting, I decided to transfer to the elementary setting. While in the elementary setting, I taught grades Kindergarten through 5th, all subject areas. Even with those dynamics, the students and I set goals to accomplish throughout the year. With the plan in place, data showed that my students made at least a grade level gain in math and reading within one year. During my time in the elementary setting, I provided after-school tutoring for general education students. After providing 8 years of effective instruction, I transferred back to the middle school setting.

I currently teach students with emotional disabilities, concentrating on ELA and Math, in grades 6th through 8th. My goal is to mainstream the students from the self-contained setting into the general education setting before they transition to high school. I have shared this goal with the students, and we devised a plan to make our goal an accomplishment. As of the end of the first quarter, more than half of my students have been successfully mainstreamed into at least 2 general education classes. I firmly believe that when students have input in their success, they will work their best to succeed. It is a joy and a privilege just to be a part of their success.

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.

Phonics

I have taught Reading in the elementary school setting for 8 years. During that time, I have taught students the fundamentals of reading, which included letter recognition, phonics, etc., to teaching them decoding and comprehension skills. I have attended various professional developments on reading mastery. I have also attended graduate level courses in Reading as part of my continuing education.
