About Brianna

I recently graduated with distinction from the University of Virginia, named 25th in the nation in US News' top colleges list, with Bachelors Degrees in Psychology and Spanish. I highly value education. I also pride myself on working well with children, aspiring to be a clinical social worker. However, I have experience working with adults as well. Within the past year I have tutored recently immigrated doctors and middle school children in English as a Second Language (ESL). I have also tutored middle and high school students in basic math, english, and science. My methods are to be as patient and honest as possible.

I focus on pronunciation and vocabulary during ESL, speaking casually to demonstrate openness and invite usage of useful, everyday vocabulary. I offer knowledge in other areas such as SAT math, Microsoft Word, Spanish, and ballet. I scored 750 out of 800 on SAT math. I've been using Microsoft Word for 10 years. I have been learning Spanish for 15 years, exempting me from the language requirement at the University of Virginia and enabling me to converse with native speakers. Finally, I have been training in technical forms of dance for 17 years. I have participated in many competitions nationwide and been hired in several professional shows.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ballet

I have been dancing since I was four years old and competitively since I was nine years old. I have performed at the Kennedy Center with the Joffrey Ballet, at Madison Square Garden, on the Royal Caribbean cruise line, at the Cherry Blossom Parade, and various other venues. The studio I attended (Spotlight Studio of Dance in Millersville MD) appears on several "Top 50 east coast studios" lists. In addition, I was on the varsity dance team all four years at the University of Virginia. My senior year, I was the team captain.

Spanish

On May 16, 2015 I received a Bachelors of Arts in Spanish from the University of Virginia. Additionally, I studied Spanish in Valencia, Spain for one month while living with a family that only spoke Spanish. I have been studying the Spanish language for 15 years.

Super Patient and Flexible — Brianna is doing a wonderful job tutoring my less-than-enthusiastic 15 year old. She is patient with him and very professional. My son was slated to work with her in Geometry and Chemistry, but with his PSAT's coming up in October, Brianna is doing PSAT/SAT tutoring with him as well. An unexpected, but wonderful bonus to our tutoring sessions. ...
