All of Brittany’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Brittany’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Drawing

I received my BFA from the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Drawing as a means of observation is a key part of any fine artists' foundation, and is incorporated into my work practice. Teaching how to draw is an essential part of my lesson plan as a tutor.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working for a tutoring company for students k-6th called The Learning Curve for 5 months. They offer SES tutoring to students in the East Bay area. While working there I have taught reading/writing/phonics/ESL and helped with students that have learning disabilities. I have also been working for an independent contracting company called The Buddy System for K-6 students in the East Bay who are home-schooled. In addition to this, independently I have been tutoring k-6 students on my own for 5 months.

Painting

I am a self-employed painter who specializes in portraiture.

Background: I received my BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. During my time there I was accepted into their upper-division painting department, Advanced Painting. I was one of a very small fraction of my colleagues within the entire Painting department who was selected (24 of 400). During my time in Advanced Painting I was given my own studio and worked one on one with my teachers. This program is understood to have a rigor comparable with the graduate program.

Phonics

I have been working for a tutoring company for students k-6th called The Learning Curve for 5 months. They offer SES tutoring to students in the East Bay area. While working there I have taught reading/writing/phonics/ESL and helped with students that have learning disabilities. I use the phonics method, putting a heavy emphasis on encouraging students to sound out their words instead of taking guesses, and have had much success. I have a library of books that focus on learning word families that I use with each student that is of appropriate age. Phonics is the main method I use to teach my students how to read.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
