About Brandi

As a teacher and mentor, I have taught classes across disciplines in the fields of musicology, ethnomusicology, research methodology and interdisciplinary studies. I have also mentored and advised diverse students, such as non-traditional students, athletes and members of underrepresented groups. Despite the disparate subjects I teach, the theme in my teaching philosophy remains the same. As a means of staying engaged with students across the disciplines, the themes of my teaching philosophy are to be accessible, to encourage students’ intellectual curiosity and growth and to help students discover their agency and their ownership of their educations and futures.

One method of helping students discover their agency is to meet them at their level. I ensure I can make course content relevant and demonstrate that I have respect for their time. This respect is usually reciprocated and creates more proactive students and engenders trust. It is my aim that no matter what the subject they study students are able to think critically about their work.

Among the subjects I teach or have taught are: music, both theory and history; English Composition and grammar; and world, European and American (both comprehensive and specifically African-American)histories. My research interests have granted me expertise in religion and religious history, some philosophy and classics. I have also have been trained in teaching standardized test materials by a prominent test prep company.

As a 3rd generation educator, I am committed to the educational success of students in SC. I attended public schools and my undergraduate degree in the state, and while I relocated to pursue my graduate studies, it was important that I return to the state to educate eager students. I am prompt and honest and am comfortable with diverse audiences and learning levels. I currently teach in higher education, however I have had formal and informal teaching experience with learners in childhood to golden years. I look forward to broadening your students' educational experiences!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
