Bio

Hi, I'm Brianna! I've been working in elementary schools since I was 17, beginning as a 1st grade classroom assistant while in high school. I graduated college with a BA in Elementary Education (K-6), then followed up with an AMI Montessori Elementary certificate. I've worked at an international school teaching 3rd grade as well as spending the past three years teaching in a Montessori classroom.

Hi, I'm Brianna! I've been working in elementary schools since I was 17, beginning as a 1st grade classroom assistant while in high school. I graduated college with a BA in Elementary Education (K-6), then followed up with an AMI Montessori Elementary certificate. I've worked at an international school teaching 3rd grade as well as spending the past three years teaching in a Montessori classroom.

In addition to teaching in elementary schools, I taught English in Italy, 2nd and 3rd grade in South Africa, ballet to students 6-18, art and music classes, running summer camp programs, and tutoring. My extensive experience, and wide range of knowledge will be beneficial in helping children to grow in confidence so they can find success in all areas of their lives.

Having trained in many different forms of math, from traditional to Montessori to common core, I have various ways of looking at mathematics and helping children find a way that works for them. Since I've learned various methods myself, I am able to explain elementary math in different ways to aid in understanding.

Science is exploration. When I can help children tap into their curious, exploratory nature, they are able to enjoy the processes involved. Instead of being terminology and "out there" ideas, I use examples and experiments to help bring the focus down to an easily understandable level.

I have worked extensively with children as they are learning to read. One of the biggest factors I have seen is that every child is different so the approach can be altered for each child. As I help with reading skills, I will try different methods to help your child feel at ease, wherever they're at with reading, so they can be successful.

Understanding child development and developmental psychology, I know that handwriting is more than a rote process. It involves many different intricate muscles movements that cannot be grasped through handwriting practice alone. I help children with handwriting through many different methods such as using pencil grips to learn the correct form, learning calligraphy and drawing techniques, and utilizing other skills that help engage the muscle groups that assist with handwriting skills.

I love to see students succeed academically, but I am equally desiring to see students grow in confidence. I love to make tutoring about what children are capable of, and using those skills and that confidence to assist with the skills that are weaker, in turn making them strengths as well!

Please reach out to me about scheduling a tutoring session! I'm so excited to begin working with you and your child!

Ballet

I began my classical ballet studies under Carlos Stroia at Stroia Ballet Company when I was five years old until I was 17. At 17, I entered the YAGP competition, and was accepted into multiple summer intensive programs including The Joffrey Balley in New York City. I worked as the Ballet Director at NorthCrest Dance in Minnesota, teaching students age 6-18 and choreographing their winter shows then moved to California and taught ballet for an after school program. In addition to Stroia Ballet, I have trained with St. Paul City Ballet, Minnesota Ballet, University of Minnesota-Duluth's Ballet Program, St. Cloud State University's ballet classes, and many additional styles of dance, most recently doing an intensive in Tel Aviv, Israel with Ohad Naharin and dancing in Redding, CA as an apprentice with Redding City Dance Company.
