About this tutor

I have enjoyed being a mom, homeschool instructor, substitute teacher, and literacy instructor. I've spent 20 years working with youth through tutoring, substitute teaching, volunteering, and non-profit work. I used to tutor full-time from my home based business, Early Literacy Interventions, and am watching my students now graduate from high school and attend college. I am tutoring part-time now from home or online. I am trained in the Wilson Language Fundations, Just Words, and Reading Systems for Dyslexics.

I also use Wilson to teach systematic handwriting and cursive instruction, upon request. My degrees aren’t in teaching but teaching is a part of the daily job! I have a BS degree in Health Care Management as well as a degree in Dental Hygiene. Although I have loved helping my patients for over 23 years, I also have a passion for learning and teaching - so private and group tutoring helps me do both :)

I love seeing students succeed! I love helping people! I used to coach youth sports as well and received the following awards: 

YMCA Asset Champion Nominee - Adult Role Model

YMCA Philanthropy Award Recipient

Proctor & Gamble Preventive Dentistry Award

    Brandy has compassion and real knowledge when working with our girls. I also really appreciated her follow up with me after each session in regards to the lessons she had done and what we can work on at home.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I usually like to do an introduction over FaceTime with new students (if underage, I prefer that this occurs with the parents at the same time.) Once I understand what the needs are, then I can offer tutoring sessions straight away, or if a learning issue is suspected in the English Language, then I can offer an assessment before tutoring sessions begin. Language assessments, if needed, are at an additional cost.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I did not go to college to become a teacher, however, I've spent nearly 15 years educating myself on specific teaching methods to help many kids succeed in school, including my own children. I am extremely knowledgable in working with children who learn differntly and offer multisensory methods to help when needed. A side note: I do hold a Bachelor's Degree in Healthcare Management, and an additional 2-year degree in Dental Hygiene as well. Being a dental hygienist for 23 years has also taught me how to educate through chairside oral hygiene education, which I am known for in our practice.
