Hi! My name is Brittany and I have been teaching for over 8 years. I have a wide range of teaching experiences from high school English to SAT preparation to theatre to Special Education English classes, with some middle school (English, Spanish and History) thrown in. I try my best to make learning enjoyable for students and to provide them with strategies for learning that they can apply to their content areas to help them be their most successful. I know that each student learns differently and I work to tailor things to the needs of my students and meet them at their ability levels.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
