The Broward Tutor Randi Gelfond

Broward Tutor Randi Gelfond

Just who is The Broward Tutor?  My name is Randi Gelfond, and I am a friendly, energetic, and creative woman. In August of 2011, after 13 terrific years of teaching in Broward County, I opened my own tutoring business. I love my career, because it gives me the flexibility to work with children of many ages and educational levels.

I grew up in Hollywood, Florida, graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, and have lived in both Boston and Washington DC. After a career as a graphic designer and art director, I moved back to Florida to raise my children. While volunteering at my children’s school, teachers there mentioned I was a natural educator. Taking this advice, I worked on my certification while substitute teaching. I was hired after my very first interview, and never looked back!

For much of my life, I have been joyously surrounded by children, from raising my accomplished daughters, to educating students at Lakeside Elementary School in Pembroke Pines. During my time at Lakeside, I was a Student Council Advisor, Team Leader, and Chair of both the Reading and Writing Committee.  Within my classroom, I designed and facilitated an annual “Math Olympics,” which provided active learning experiences in estimation and measurement skills. There is nothing I enjoy more than using creative methods to make learning fun and memorable for my students. For thirteen years straight, I either reached or exceeded all goals for annual improvement of proficiency on student test scores. I love to learn, so I’m always searching for ways to better myself and the children I so enjoy educating.

In my spare time, I love to read, garden, walk my dogs, swim, visit museums, and do projects around my home. I have a great appreciation for the nature that surrounds me, and often go to the beach or a local park.  

Current Florida Department of Education Professional Educator's Certificate, ranked as a Highly Qualified Teacher, endorsed in Elementary Education (1-6), Gifted Education, and ESOL, fingerprints and background check on file with Broward County Schools, references available.
