"I think the biggest value they get is the 1-1 time, and where they can focus on the strength and weakness of both children."  

- Jeff. H. (Parent)


Jessica is a Bay Area native. Raised in San Mateo, she attended college at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. She graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2018.

Jessica is an avid volunteer and has worked with children with special needs in both academic and recreational settings. She is currently a coach at an inclusive program at E-Soccer where children with and without special needs can learn soccer skills in the same environment.  In her spare time, Jessica loves spending time with friends, playing board games, and traveling to the beach.

Brandy is a Southern California native who moved to the Bay Area to continue to pursue her love for science education and health care. Brandy’s experience began as a supplemental instructor for organic chemistry II at the community college she attended. She then blossomed into a private tutor, tutoring local high school and middle school students varied levels of mathematics and science.

These teaching opportunities prompted Brandy to move to the Bay Area to become a full time science teacher. As a classroom teacher, Brandy taught AP environmental science, chemistry, and ethnic studies. Brandy continues to express her belief that all students are capable of understanding science with the proper study skills, time management, and through various teaching approaches.

When not tutoring, Brandy is a clinical coordinator and laboratory technician at a local health clinic. She also mentors through grassroots non-profit organizations. In her free time, she enjoys watching historical documentaries, sports games, and socializing with friends.

The Right Approach to Education Staff

Tiffany was born in Daly City and then moved to San Bruno at the age of ten. She spent many years playing sports, participating in school plays and learning all there is to know about baking the perfect chocolate chip cookies. When she was in high school, she found herself volunteering at a Spanish Immersion Preschool in which her passion for teaching had begun. From there, she worked in many classroom and after-school environments, focusing primarily on early elementary and middle school ages. 

In her free time, Tiffany loves going shopping, hanging around the house, and watching Gilmore Girls reruns on Netflix. She is currently in the process of continuing her education and hopes to receive a masters degree in education from the University of San Francisco.

Charlie is a Bay Area native who discovered their passion for STEM at an early age. They enjoy puzzles and increasing their mathematical knowledge, but most of all they enjoy sharing their knowledge with others through teaching. Charlie has an AS in mathematics as well as physics from Foothill College, and is currently pursuing a BA in Mathematics for Teaching at San Francisco State University.

When not practicing math and physics, Charlie likes to listen to and play music. Their favorite instrument is the ukulele, but they are also learning to play the guitar, mandolin, and drums.
