About Britt

You've already made a great choice by clicking on my page. Congratulations!
My students over the past ten years continually rate me as the best teacher they've ever had. There are three reasons why:
1. I create a comfortable, fun, motivating environment where students enjoy learning.
2. I truly care about my students progress and won't accept anything but the very best from them.
3. My years of experience allow me to create a specific plan for each student to help them reach their language goals.

That is the recipe for my success. My name is Britt, and I'm ready to be the best teacher you've ever had.

I am a highly qualified and experienced ESL teacher and tutor currently teaching at San Francisco's top private language school. I work with my students to improve their basic speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills. But it does not stop with the basics skills. In addition, I teach test preparation for TOEFL, IELTS, and the Cambridge exam, Idioms and Slang, Business English, Presentation Preparation, Public Speaking, and everyday Conversation Skills . I've taught specialty focus courses on Entrepreneurship, Art and Design, and Society and Culture. All levels of English learning are welcome to contact me, from low-level beginner to high-level advanced. From large group classrooms to one-on-one tutoring, I can cater my course for your needs. I have taught students from over 60 countries so I know what specific challenges each student faces and have a great understanding of the cultures of the world. I have impeccable writing and editing skills and I can assist with letter and professional email drafting, resume building, and college admission essays and papers.

Success is my number one goal with my students and they are always so pleased with the improvements they see when working with me. I work to improve CONFIDENCE and comfort with the English language as well as English skills. I pride myself on giving my students a unique and personal tutoring experience. I do that by making sure I understand the different goals each of my students have when I tutor them. Maybe you want to improve your pronunciation, expand your vocabulary, learn how to write better emails, or comprehend the books you read in English. I will create a personalized tutoring plan for each student or group of students according to their learning style and what goals they want to meet. Of course, each lesson will be fun and challenging!

I would love to talk to you today about the opportunity to tutor you. Please contact me and let's get started!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL-ESL) and have teaching experience with multi-lingual groups and one-on-one private tutoring. I teach students at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. I use an integrated approach with emphasis on language structure and skills like reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking. I can prep students for language tests, essay writing, presentations and public speaking, and the business world. My material is fun and challenging. You will definitely see results. Let's get you started!

Reading

I have worked alongside school-age and high school students as a reading tutor for over two years. Most of my students are native Spanish speakers who have learned English as a second language and need assistance with reading in English.
I like to focus on reading comprehension, inference, vowel and consonant pronunciation, and vocabulary searches.

Study Skills

I am a highly qualified and experienced ESL teacher and tutor currently teaching at one of San Francisco's top language schools. As a Cambridge exam instructor, I've worked with students to maximize results during study time. Techniques include flash vocabulary, self-testing, phonetic memorization, etc.

TOEFL

Not ready for TOEFL? Let's work on that. I am an experienced TOEFL prep teacher with resources available to assist students in reading, writing, and grammar TOEFL prep. I have worked alongside private students and group classes. I lead timed writing tests, explore TOEFL reading topics and grammar exercises and have an arsenal of sample tests for preparation.
