I have other thirty-five years of teaching/tutoring experience beginning in 1977 as the manager/tutor of the Stanford Tutoring Service in Palo Alto, California.

There are few things more gratifying to me than the look of satisfaction in the eyes of a student for whom the math mystery has been revealed! I have over 70 hours on Wyzant and each new student, each new challenge, brings me tremendous satisfaction!

I am passionate about learning and about sharing that passion with students....

Brenda has been an excellent tutor so far. She is assisting my daughter with geometry tutoring and we will soon be moving into biology and study/test-taking skills. We highly recommend Brenda.

Brenda was welcoming, warm, professional, attentive and insightful. She arrived prepared, connected through conversation with our son Cameron by taking a sincere interest in him as a human being and learning more about his backstory, challenges, motivations and goals. Mrs. Brenda M. is the friendly, small town values neighborly mentor who exudes efficiency and immediately gets down to the business of empowering the student. Most impressed that she praised his ?effort? and provided mission critical ?intermittent reinforcement? ?- Our goals as parents also are to champion Cameron leading his own learning, to provide the resources to empower him developing student agency or the capacity to develop a growth mindset, grit and ownership of his own learning. We are on a wonderful journey CO-piloted by Brenda to reinforce self-exploration, teaching him to reflect on his strengths or challenges and understanding the strategies and resources that he has in his toolkit. Brenda has command mastery of nurturing mentoring and leadership development. Further goals are to him develop strategies to succeed consistently in academic and life endeavors. Core Strategy Mission ? Get wise and achieve passionate autodidact level of learning. ? Become super curious. Ask lots of questions. More questions. Keep asking questions. ? Collaborate on a daily basis. ? Gather information and know how to search. ? Figure out what is most important. ? Write well, think critically. ? Distinguish FACT from OPINION. ? Be an independent learner. ? Develop moonshot thinking ? Self-Expansion and growth mindset Additional strategies including delayed gratification, grit, persistence, taking calculated risks, achieving full autonomy and developing the self awareness to understand that by leveraging ?effort? he is completely in control of his academic and life success. For now we have contracted 3 sessions per week. We welcome more sessions and a long term collaborative relationship with Brenda. Thankful and blessed to have connected with Brenda.

Brenda is wonderful. She was able to squeeze us in on very short notice, and followed up after the lesson, too. My son needed to find out what he was doing wrong on his last Trig/PreCalc test of the year, so that he could take another version of the test for makeup credit. My son, who is extremely shy/introverted, felt very comfortable working with her. I am very glad I contacted Brenda, and would definitely do so again.

Miss Brenda has been working with our son for 4 weeks now. After his last session he seemed almost giddy. When I asked what had made him so happy he said, ?I?m finally getting it.? Thank you Miss Brenda for all your help!
- Melissa D. from Littleton, CO
My son enjoyed his first session with Brenda for writing. She was very patient and keeps my 8 year old son focused and on track. We look forward to the next session!
- Yumi O. from Aurora, CO
Brenda worked on Geometry with my son. After we left he said he really liked her. That is not like him to comment. I wish we were her only clients so we could see her more.
- Brenda N. from Aurora, CO
My high school daughter needed someone to reteach concepts slower and encourage her and Brenda did a fabulous job! Later in the evening, I find my daughter has spent 2 hours on homework of which she has NEVER done! What a perfect match!
- Heidi S. from Littleton, CO
Brenda was prepared and knowledge about Algebra 2. She is fantastic at relating, motivating and helping kids understand! I recommend her to anyone needing math help.

Brenda takes the time to dive into your specific curriculum first, then finds a way to teach you the concepts in a way you can comprehend
- Brandon B. from Conroe, TX
My son enjoyed his first tutoring class with Ms. Brenda. He says she explained it to him to where he could understand it. I think he is going to be great in Advanced Algebra II Honors.
- Michelle J. from Denver, CO
Brenda started helping my daughter prepare for the ACT. She is friendly, professional, good Listener, gentle, kind, caring, knowledgeable, and very effective in explaining in a manner that my daughter was able to understand and learn. So grateful because she will be tutoring her on an ongoing basis. Thank you!

Ms M is extremely knowledgeable about the subjects she covers with my son. Her patience and skill for fostering confidence and independence makes her worth her weight in gold.

My daughter was really struggling in Spanish, she even considered dropping the class. We have been working with Brenda for a few months now and my daughter has gone from and F to B+. My daughter even received a student of the month award for her great progress in Spanish. Brenda is also very easy to work with! I am very happy that we found her!
- Laurie W. from Aurora, CO
Brenda helped my high school son with all the conic sections of Algebra 2 as well as polynomials. My son struggles with Algebra but with Brenda's help he is progressing nicely as able to understand! Thank you Brenda!
- Stephanie E. from Littleton, CO
I look forward to my sessions and just LOVE her! Mrs. Brenda Moore has tutored me twice weekly for four months, and she has been an outstanding tutor! She is enormously intelligent, flexible, and able to teach with such competence and humor. She picked up my learning style immediately and her attunement, focus, and patience have been exemplary. I am a member of the baby boomer generation, with the goal of increasing my general computer skills.
