About Brett

I have worked as a volunteer coach, after school tutor, and classroom assistant for the the last fifteen years in a number of youth sports programs and local elementary schools. I moved from Colorado to Washington in late 1999 first attending Seattle Central Community College, where I later completed my Associate's degree in general studies, and then finished my Bachelor's in Early Child Development at the University of Washington last spring.

I am currently applying to work as a lead pre-school teacher, but felt I could continue to grow by having more opportunity to work with students one-on-one in an atmosphere where I can tailor a curriculum to meet each individual's needs. I greatly enjoy combining subjects to cultivate comprehensive understanding as opposed to rote memorization, and to break the monotony of rigid instruction. I believe the greatest challenge in tutoring and instruction is developing a life long love of learning. Once each student begins to understand how to locate resources and problem solve, I believe anything is possible.

I excelled in reading from an early age, which taught me to become a critical thinker. I believe once you develop a love of learning other perceived deficiencies tend to evaporate.
