About Briana

Hi! I've been tutoring professionally for two years for Club Z, working with grades K-11! Before that I have worked with kids of all kinds in Children's ministry and at an after school program. I have a Bachelor's in Humanities - English. I love to spread the joy of reading and writing to those who have yet to discover it. That being said, I am also very patient with new or struggling readers, making many bridges to learning, such as phonics and sight words. I have great experience teaching foreign students English as a second language, as the 4 I have now are very pleased with my teaching style. Though English is my strong-suit, I am very experienced in teaching math up to 8th grade. I am adept in Common Core standards. I have light experience with minor special education. My specialty is that I am very patient, friendly, and I love to break down concepts or problems in a simple format for students, having clear direction. I love interactive learning. If they're not practicing, speaking, reading, writing, solving, then they're not learning. I like to make this fun for them, as much as is effective. Please do not contact me via phone or email unless I have given you permission to do so. I look forward to meeting you and your kids!

My style of teaching is very effective because I customize materials for the student's needs. If the student needs a challenge, I challenge them. If the student needs a confidence boost, I encourage them. I aim to make the subject fun for them, and bring it into their realm of interests. On the same token, I don't accept laziness. There's a difference between laziness and discouragement. I have a pretty keen eye between the two. And sometimes, the kids just need a focusing game to get them warmed up for their lessons.
