About the Instructor

KB Brown

I believe that the relationship between teacher and student is the most important aspect of good education. I also believe in the importance of good questions to spark the mind of the student. I prefer discussions to lectures, and I aim to make classes and tutoring sessions student-centered and interactive.

Both of my sons (8th and 10th grade) love Dr. Brown. She's a retired Honors/AP English teacher that has the gift of teaching students how to think, analyze and express themselves. She listens. She challenges. She is frank, open and encouraging. She cares a lot and will send me updates on my son plus she tells me what I can do to help him excel. Her experience helps her to guide my boys in what they need to know and how to successfully approach essays writing assignments. And she knows how to communicate directions in a way that builds up, validates and inspires.
