My name is Brenda and I have been an elementary teacher for 30 years. I have taught grades K- 2nd primarily, and I have also been a lead teacher in a preschool for children 2. 9 to 5 years old. I hold a BS from Boston University and a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Brandeis University. I have taught hundreds of children to read, and literacy is my specialty. Additionally, I have tutored in my home for over the last 10 years, tailoring lessons to meet the individual needs of each student. My strength is creating engaging, creative, and challenging curriculum and for the last 5 months I've been doing it successfully online! I am EEC licensed and I also have a current Mass teaching license. I am familiar with many reading, writing, math and behavioral programs currently used at public and private schools (Fundations, Investigations, Responsive Classroom, and Wilson, to name a few) and I would love the opportunity to assist your family in any way I can!

Brenda is an amazing gifted tutor! She is flexible and engaging with her lessons. She has been tutoring my 5 year old before the pandemic. Brenda has continued to tutor my daughter and has followed safety protocols (wearing a mask during her sessions at our home). She has connected with my now 6 year old. She has progressed so much in both reading and writing. Prior to Brenda, my daughter was hesitant in writing. Now my daughter is confident and reading at an advance level. Brenda provides a written report after each session and she sends me videos so that I can see her progress. I highly recommend Brenda.

Hi we worked with Patricia for one day of gap care for our 5 month-old baby. We would have worked with her further but our long term schedules don't align well enough right now. We appreciated that she cared about COVID safety and wore a mask. Anyway, she was fantastic and obviously has a lot of experience with kiddos and cares a lot about them. She not only cares about the basic "feed, play, change diapers" but also in stimulating them mentally like going over colors, shapes, animals, faces, etc in play that is definitely a step beyond the norm. She also doesn't shy away from light household chores if there is downtime and she definitely carries the attitude of being there to work and do a good job proactively. We asked her to speak Spanish with our baby as we'd like to expose her to more Spanish than she gets at home with us and she was more than happy to oblige. Her English is enough to get the job done do don't be put off if you have initial difficulty communicating.
