About Brendan

I am a highly qualified teacher with a Master's in Teaching and sixteen years of teaching experience. I currently teach at a middle school in the Seattle Public School district. After many years of teaching, I continue to find joy in what I do. Tutoring is my favorite part of the job. I look forward to the opportunity to work one-on-one with a student. This format makes it so much easier for a student to make critical connections and to arrive at that 'aha' moment.

I have a wealth of experience with Common Core. My cadre has periodically created reading and writing curriculum adopted by all the middle schools in the Seattle Public School district. In short, I use rich, engaging and effective lessons on a daily basis. My efforts have resulted in a 5% increase in my students' MSP test scores. This average gain is above the 3% acceptable growth rate.

Having taken numerous trainings, I have implemented highly effective reading and writing workshops in my classroom. I conference almost daily with students. In writers' workshop, I help my students set goals, re-structure paragraphs, re-phrase for improved fluency and make dozens of other important revisions. In readers' workshop, I help students make inferences, predictions and claims that are well-supported with evidence. My efforts have resulted in a 5% increase in my students' MSP test scores. This average gain is above the 3% acceptable growth increase.
