About Brendan

I have always enjoyed watching students "get it" for the first time. For me, that's the joy of tutoring. My experience teaching started in 2010 when I taught English in Guayaquil, Ecuador in a poor urban community. I worked with all age groups, ranging from 2nd graders to seniors in high school.

In 2011, I received a 1380 on my GRE test, and attended UC Davis Master's Program in Agricultural & Resource Economics. During my two years at UC Davis, I was a Teacher Assistant for several economics and statistics courses. As a TA I led discussion sections with over 30 students, and held office hours for one-on-one tutoring. Now I work for a large non-profit organization, helping them conduct research related to sustainable agriculture and impact evaluations.

My focus is to challenge the student in a friendly and non-intimidating way. I am fluent in English and Spanish, and feel comfortable tutoring in both languages. I prefer to conduct tutor sessions at the Tacoma, Puyallup, or Olympia Public Libraries, but I can also be flexible. I monitor growth through homework assignments and test performance. I encourage feedback, and am always looking to make my services better.
