About Brett


Bio

I attended Norwich University majoring in both history and English. I am a voracious reader and love any form of literature. I took classes such as American History, European History, Medieval History, Russian History, both Classical and Modern Literature, Modern Chinese History, American Government and Politics, and Greek Mythology. I believe in a hands-on and active approach to learning. I find that with problems of memorization, using both red or other brightly colored pens and pacing...

I attended Norwich University majoring in both history and English. I am a voracious reader and love any form of literature. I took classes such as American History, European History, Medieval History, Russian History, both Classical and Modern Literature, Modern Chinese History, American Government and Politics, and Greek Mythology. I believe in a hands-on and active approach to learning. I find that with problems of memorization, using both red or other brightly colored pens and pacing while reciting work wonders.

The more active your brain, the more likely you are to remember, and most importantly of all relating history and characters in literature to the present day make memorizing so much easier for children with boredom issues. I am a mother to a 10 month old boy who already has a love of books just from making it exciting and I wish to impart that love and excitement on as many other children as I can. I came from a family of readers and my husband is as well. Being well spoken and well read can make the biggest of differences when venturing into high school, college, and eventually the real world. Being well versed in literature and history can open up avenues among older adults because conversations can be formed as well as mutual respect and understandings. I am a lively and energetic person who has spent time in both college and the military and have found that a good education can take you many places!

I tutored in both high school and college using various methods adapting it for each person's unique mode of learning. There is no one correct way to learn or to tutor, each student brings a different set of rules and a different way they learn best, sometimes it just takes a fresh perspective and a bit of fun learning to discover what way someone learns best. I am the perfect person to uncover that and put your child on the path to excellence.
