About Brittan

I have three years experience as a teacher. I taught kindergarten for one year and fourth grade for two years. I also taught at a summer program called Summer Bridge for three years. I have more than five years of experience in tutoring, mainly in elementary subjects but have also tutored students in language, physical science, and all areas of history. Unlike teaching in a classroom of 25-30 students, tutoring allows me to focus on a student's specific needs and cater my teaching to help them succeed. I believe that each student should learn through whatever learning style is their strongest (auditory, visual, or kinesthetic).

I have taught 4th grade math for two years, and I have over 5 years of experience teaching other grade levels of math. I was never very good at math in elementary school, so I can relate to students who find it challenging. I enjoy helping students figure out the best way to learn how to do different math equations.

I have always enjoyed teaching physical science because kids LOVE doing experiments and seeing how things work. I do not like to just read, teach, and quiz. I want my students to have fun and see how exciting science can be! Science is also one of those subjects that is all about memorization, so I like to help my students come up with ways to remember the information, whether it be through a song or making up a funny story.

I went to a Christian school from k-12th grade and I ended up teaching at the same school for 3 years! I was given the bible award in 12th grade and have a passion for Jesus! English has always been my favorite subject, making it fun and easy for me to teach. Grammar is always a tough area for so many students to understand, but I absolutely love teaching it! Fourth grade English/grammar is probably the hardest of any grade level, and with having two years of experience teaching fourth grade, I have learned many ways to help stud bets learn it.

I have always loved kids and ever since I was young I wanted to be a teacher. I never liked my teachers (or professors) who lectured, so the one thing I always do is make the learning experience FUN! Please contact me to schedule appointments :)

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.

Bible Studies

I attended a private Christian school from k-12th grade (Maranatha Christian Academy/ Calvary Chapel Junior High and High School). In elementary school, we had a Bible lesson everyday and were graded on learning scripture, and had chapel once a week. In Junior High and High School, Bible was a required subject, and we also had chapel once a week. In addition to our normal Bible class, I took "Girls Bible" as an elective my junior and senior years. I also was awarded the "Bible award" my senior year for having the highest grade and was asked to be the closing prayer person at our graduation ceremony.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught kindergarten (1 year) and fourth grade (2 years) at a private Christian school. I have also substituted in almost all grade levels (including junior high and high school). I have more than 5 years experience in tutoring various subjects to all grade levels. My tutoring method is figuring out a student's learning style (kinesthetic, auditory, or visual) and create ways based on that style to help them learn the information.

Handwriting

When I was young, I attended a private Christian school where handwriting was a required subject from 2nd grade through 6th grade. I also substituted and taught (3 years) at the same school, so I have experience in teaching handwriting as well.
