Outstanding AND Patient!
As a person who works with various groups of people, I continuously find helping others reach their full potential exciting and rewarding. My highest degree is a Ph.D. in Educational Administration with a specialization in Pre-K through 12th grade; however, I have provided adult instruction at the college level and through workshops for over 8 years as well. I use effective practices, strategies, and resources to inspire and enrich each student’s learning. Direct instruction, workbooks, visu…
Sharon D. from Clinton, MD Dr. Tina B has been an excellent tutor/instructor. My daughter's math teacher has commented on seeing an improvement with her math. This improvement is due to the outstanding one-on-one tutoring skills Dr. Tina provide. Dr. Tina comes prepared and packed with plenty of patient and the joy to teach. As a very concern parent, I only want the best for my daughter and Dr. Tina is the BEST!!!! I highly recommend her.
Barbara W. from Accokeek, MD My son has been working with Dr. B for two weeks and have raised his grade in Conceptual Physics a whole letter grade. She has taken the time to explain things to him so that he understands it. She is very patient and encouraging. He feels more confident in his ability to complete an assignment without reassurance. He just received an "A" on his mid term exam in Physics. Thanks Dr. B for all your support.
Tashawna G. from Alexandria, VA Dr. Tina B. has done a great job with my son. She provides him with the assurance that he is capable! My son actually looks forward to his tutoring session and was adamant about tutoring even on a holiday. He describes Dr. Tina B. as motherly. I knew she was the right fit for us after our first meeting. Thanks Dr. Tina B! You are blessing to my son.
Angela A. from Waldorf, MD I stumbled across Dr. Tina during one of her tutoring sessions in desperation in finding a math and science tutor for my daughter, who is a sophomore in high school. This is my daughter?s 5th week and I have been impressed with her expertise, kindness and willingness to teach. My daughter really appreciates Dr. Tina not only showing her the way math problems are taught in her class but tips and tricks for doing the problems so she recognizes and can set up the problems on her own. I also appreciate her quick reviews after we have met summing up the work for the day. It helps me as a parent to monitor the work my daughter is doing even though she is awesome at communicating with me in person.
Shawn T. from White Plains, MD Dr. Brown has been working with my 4th grader in Math for about a month and I already see improvement. I am very impressed with Dr. Brown?s ability to explain concepts in a way that my child can understand and retain. After each session she provides thorough notes summarizing the lessons covered. I highly recommend using her services. She is patient, trustworthy and professional.
Semanthe B. from Upper Marlboro, MD Dr. B has truly been a blessing to my child's overall emotional and academic health. I prayed and asked God to send a tutor that could act as an academic coach for my daughter. Math has always been a struggle and I have spent years looking for a qualified tutor that would support her learning style as well as providing remediation and enrichment where needed. When I found Dr. B on Wyzant I had not idea that my prayers had been answered. From the very first meeting she has been engaged and focused on my daughter's overall success. Initally I reached out to her for Algebra 2 and Chemistry tutoring. Dr. Brown instinctively inquired about the other subjects and immediately created an individualized plan to address my daughter's overall academic achievement. Almost immediately we began to see results. After a few sessions with Dr. B my daughter took an unannounced math quiz and scored a 94%. When I asked my 16 year old daughter to describe Dr. B she says she is patient, knowledgeable, and funny. My daughter has gained a new sense of confidence towards school and I am excited about her confidence. Truly I thank God for sending you (Dr. B) in our lives. You can not imagine what you have done for my family.
Teresa B. from Waldorf, MD Tutoring sessions are fine but there is always a miscommunication with her. Ms. B. is never clear on what she wants. She says one thing, then there is something different i.e. time and location. Ms. B. always wanted to charge for sessions not rendered when there is a miscommunication on her part.
Hanan J. from Brandywine, MD I was quite impressed with Dr. Brown's credentials from just looking at her profile. We were even more impressed from our first lesson especially how she got our daughter (5 years old) to interact with her and pay attention to her which is what she struggles with the most. Thank you Dr. Brown for making our first session a joy!
Angela J. from Clinton, MD Dr. Tina B. is a great Tutor! She helped get my daughter back on track with three major core subjects. My daughter was at risk for repeating the 2nd grade and I just couldn't let that happen. The breakdown of communication with myself and the teacher was mainly at fault. While I assumed everything was going well, especially since she made the honor roll the previous quarter, the teacher wasn't communicating to me that my daughter was struggling. Not only that but I didn't know that parents could have access to grades online. I had no idea that my daughter's grades were dropping until I got a phone call from the teacher. Once I spoke to Dr. B, from day 1 she gave me the resources I needed and developed a plan to get things back on track. She armed me with a list of concerns to bring to the teacher's attention and a method to keep the lines of communication open. Once the plan was implemented my daughter's grades went up! She had confidence in reading and I along with the teacher was able to work as a team to make sure my daughter followed through with her assignments. I want to stress that when dealing with a situation like this, you can't rely on others to do all the work this was a collective effort from Dr. B, the teacher, my father, my husband and myself. Dr. B explained that from day 1 as well and she was right. Dr. B was always available and she not only encouraged my daughter but she encouraged me to stay on top of things as well. She is just awesome! Thank you so much Dr. B.!
Valencia M. from Accokeek, MD What an incredible blessing it's been to meet the acquaintance of Dr. Tina!! She is such an extraordinarily compassionate person!! Upon the initial assessment meeting, I was instantly in awe of her extreme passion for education. Her aura is unbelievably comforting!! She won me over in the matter of moments, and I consider myself very skeptical when it comes to meeting folks. Well, Dr. Tina is the "real deal!" I sincerely appreciate Dr. Tina's approach in learning how she can be of service to fit the specific need(s) of the student. For starters, Dr. Tina is a great listner. She takes well documented notes of your concerns, inquiries and requests and applies appropriate and pratical responses, theories and exercises. After winning me over in the matter of minutes, I was extremely excited to hear the feedback from my god-son. Like me, he too is a bit leary of meeting new people, but upon pick up, he was bursting at the seams to tell me all about his first session. At 100 m.p.h., he shared and explained to me that "Dr. Tina is one of the nicest teachers he's ever met and that she really listens and helps him." He went on to say that "she keeps learning fun and interesting." I discovered that leading up to and after each session with Dr. Tina, my god-son would be eager and anxious about seeing her and sharing the outcome of each session. Some of the things that instantly come to mind when describing Dr. Tina are: -very hands on -incredible patience -great listener -positive praise/feedback and encouragement -firm understanding of how to incorporate age appropriate learning tools -tremendous love for students/children -presents a variety of learning styles -extremely perceptive in identifying deficiencies/challenges -equipped with a plethora of interactive sites/activities/exercises to incorporate and confirm lessons -exceptional at capturing and documenting methods used and accomplishments attained during each session Dr. Tina is an amazingly awesome tutor who exudes ALL of the characterisctics that makes ANY child or person (including me) excited about learning. I find myself just as excited (if not more) to see and hear the progression at the end of EVERY session!! You can't get any better than this!! Our lives have certainly become more enriched because of her. His level of comfort and confidence has increased remarkably!!! The proof is in the body of his work! Thanks Dr. Tina!!
Joyce C. from Waldorf, MD Dr. Brown is an outstanding tutor! She is straight forward and honest. She goes to bat for your student in any setting. She attended a parent/student conference and insisted that the appropriate amount of time was dedicated to my daughter when the facilitators wanted to end the sessions early. I can contact her and ask her to review an assignment out of schedule and she is always willing. She challenges her to think out of the box and allows my daughter to be her own personality. She offers intern opportunity ideas, college selection process, business plan ideas and more. Her knowledge of the educational realm is priceless.
Darrel A. from Waldorf, MD Dr. Tina is a great tutor. I got alot out of only one 2 hour session. I will be contacting Dr. Tina again for more sessions. Thank you!
Taisha H. from Upper Marlboro, MD I have two daughters; one in elementary school and the other in high school. Dr. Tina tutors them both. They adore her and look forward to their sessions. They are both excited about learning for the first time in years. Her ability to nurture them and give specialized attention allows them to be less guarded. They know she wants to help them get it right and understand the principles as well as prepare them for a successful future. School has just gotten started but I feel like we are definitely starting off on the right foot thanks to Dr. Tina.
Jewel B. from Clinton, MD Dr. Tina was very patient and helpful! She walked me through the problems and cheered me on the whole way. I really appreciate the help and look forward to meeting with her in the future.
Ms. E. E. from Upper Marlboro, MD Dr. Tina provides an outstanding service. She is truly a gifted person. My son and I are so happy to have her on our team. She is doing an outstanding job with assisting my son with his math and helping him reach his full potential. I?m excited about working with her.
Kian S. from Waldorf, MD Dr. Tina is very attentive, knowledgeable and an asset to education. From day one she has been an advocate for the enhancement of our child's education. Our daughter's tutoring sessions with Dr. Tina has quickly made a difference in the classroom. Incomplete work that use to be sent home has disappeared, our daughter has improved greatly. Thank you, Dr. Tina.
Michael F. from Lothian, MD We are very pleased with Dr. B. as our son's tutor. Dr. B. has had a positive impact on Christopher from their first meeting. His grades improved immediately and his since of responsibility has grown. Chris appears more confident now and doesn't shy away from difficult tasks. The overall experience has been excellent. Thank you for you follow-up, have a nice day.
Sandy J. from Alexandria, VA We are very happy with Dr. Tina as we have been able to observe that she is an excellent tutor. She has a comprehensive knowledge of various subjects, knows how to teach each of them, and makes the learning session challenging, beneficial, and pleasant. She instructs and tests my son on math, spelling, reading, speech, and other subjects that are of every day use. She is patient, a good communicator, has excellent diction. This is very important for my son's speech/comprehension. My son likes Dr. Tina and feels that she is helping him.
Terri H. from Fort Washington, MD Dr. Tina B was very patient with my son. She takes the time to talk to him, about himself, his wants, his preferences, his goals. I think that's very good to connect with your student. So far so good. It's only been 1 session, but I like the direction she is taking.
Diana H. from Clinton, MD I never thought that I would ever understand Algebra until I met Dr. Tina. The description I got of her when I was looking for a tutor fit her perfectly. Dr. Tina is very patient and sweet, I love her techniques and her way of getting them across so you can understand in your own way. Since I started with her I am doing much better. Thank you Dr. Tina.
Alicia K. from Accokeek, MD Dr. Tina has made a difference in the success of my kids. I started late last school year and I could see the changes in their knowledge level and confidence. After a short summer break, they are excited to be working with Dr. Tina again. She has given them a thirst for knowledge and I saw the results in their schoolwork last year so I am excited about the possibilities of benefiting from a full school year. If your child is struggling in school, you won't be disappointed.
Ziporia K. from Upper Marlboro, MD Dr. B has been great for my daughter. She has been struggling with college Algebra and we hope Dr. B can help unlock the missing link for her. Dr. B is also punctual and has a unique way of connecting with her students. I will update the profile at mid terms. September 6, 2013. My daughter passed her sat Math class all because Dr. B blocked the Math haze... now we are back for another semester. It's a new Math and we look forward to more interactive tutoring and mentoring.
Bonita C. from La Plata, MD Very personable and knowledgeable. Dr. Tina worked well with my daughter's personality and brought great insight into her capabilities. Thank you!
Alison R. from White Plains, MD Very friendly and very thorough! My daughter responds very well to Dr. Tina. In just 3 lessons my daughters grade went from a D to an A! We are very pleased with the results!!!
Heidi B. from Waldorf, MD Our son has started smiling again while doing his Math. Dr.Tina was very skilled in helping him with his confidence level. We will be using her often and recommend her to anyone who has doubts about getting a tutor. She came prepared and our son felt very comfortable with her.
Paulette T. from Suitland, MD More than anything else, Dr. Tina has the ability to explain the subjects to my son, and guide him through the learning process.
Erin S. from Silver Spring, MD I have been working with Dr. Tina B. for my Praxis II test! WOW! Her approach to the test was great and I found her methods to be very effective! She has a positive vibe, telling me, "Hey, you know the information, but we gotta spice it up a little and get it on the exam." She encourages me to continue to study the way I have been, and advised me on how to understand questions better (which is my weak point). She has reassured me that she will get me to pass the test and I believe her! She is worth meeting!
Shane M. from Brandywine, MD Tina is very patient with our 8-year-old with dyslexia. Our daughter enjoys working with her and always looks forward to her sessions. Meeting at the library is nice and encourages both our children to read more and check out books.
Gail J. from Clinton, MD Dr. Tina is great. My granddaughter understood, learned, and enjoyed the session very much. She is looking forward to the next session.
Harvey M. from Mechanicsville, MD She keeps my son interested in the tutoring session, and he likes going. That is a first for him when it comes to school work!
ROLONDA H. from Brandywine, MD Dr. Tina has always received excellent reviews from me regarding my daughte'rs tutoring sessions; however, this last session didn't prove to be up to her normal standards. Dr. Tina charged me for an hour and a half tutoring session, but she only provided approximately 10 minutes of actual tutoring for my daughter. And the review written by Dr. Tina on what actually took place during the session was false. The rest of the time was spent discussing personal life, a conversation initiated by Dr. Tina. Dr. Tina is a good tutor. Just be sure not to mix business with any personal conversation. In the end, WyzAnt agreed to refund me the full amount. It's just unfortunate that my daughter loses out in this because she really liked Dr. Tina.
Brooke B. from Temple Hills, MD Our initial visit was just getting to know each other?s request and expectations. This proved to be a very informative visit, as Dr. Tina pinpointed areas that I, as the parent, needed to address (in home and at school). She quickly saw what areas my daughter needed assistance with and a plan of attack is in play. My daughter was skeptical at first, but after Dr. Tina explained how she would proceed with assisting her in the areas of concern, she felt a bit more at ease. I am looking forward to the next visit.
DANEEN M. from Bowie, MD My daughter's confidence has increased greatly since starting tutoring sessions with Dr. Tina. Her enthusiasm for learning is contagious. Thank you Dr. Tina!
Maria N. from Scottsdale, AZ I wish she was in Arizona. Despite the glitches of the online classes I think my son got a whole lot of pointers from Dr. Tina. She is very patient and she helped my son think over the process by guiding him how to go about it and not spoon feed the answers. She has a very pleasant and very upbeat personality. My son warmed up to her immediately.
