About Briana

Hello,

My name is Briana and I am currently a grad student at Stanford University. As part of the STEP (stanford teacher education program) program, I am currently a middle school student teacher at SFUSD's James Denman Middle School. I work with nearly a 100 students everyday, but I always have room for one more. :-)

Before moving to the Bay, I earned my BS in Physics with an emphasis in teaching at Seattle Pacific University. There, I TA'd 3 years for both freshmen series Chemistry and Physics. I believe my major as well as past experience have taught me how to effectively help students gain confidence, interest, and knowledge in their studies. I have learned to communicate science in creative and age appropriate ways that can best meet the student's needs and learning styles.

If there is anything else you would like to know, feel free to send me a message; otherwise, I hope this enough to ensure you that you or your student is in good hands.

Best,
Briana

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.

Algebra 2

Topics covered will include: Mastery of Equations and Inequalities, Linear Equations and Functions, Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities, Quadratic Functions, Polynomial functions, Powers, Roots, and Radicals, and Exponential and Logarithmic Functions.
Emphasis will be placed on graphs and applications of math pertaining to physics, as well as chemistry.

Chemistry

Mastery of introductory and 1st year Chemistry. Emphasis in algebraic concepts such as titration, unit conversion, and stoichiometry.

Elementary Math

Mastery of pre-algebraic concepts and reasoning. Emphasis in fractions, percentage, and analyzing word problems.

English

Mastery of phonics, grammar, and essay writing. I am proficient in literature analysis. I passed the AP English test with a 4.

Physics

Holding a BS in Physics and working on my Masters in Science Education, I am well versed in middle school and high school science curriculum. I have tutored students of high school and undergraduate age for four years now. I am also currently a middle school teacher. With this experience I have learned to communicate science in creative and age appropriate ways that can best meet the student's needs.

Prealgebra

I have 3+ years of teaching coursework including: exponents, factoring, inequalities, graphing, and systems of equations.

Study Skills

I have come up with a 6 part study skills plan for student k-college after taking classes in education, meta-cognition, and pedagogy for teachers. It consist of: reading, writing, testing, organization, motivation, and resources. All of these incorporate the student's understanding their learning style.

Here is a break down of the components:
Reading: browsing, highlighting, summarizing, anaylzing, and prereading questions
Writing: drafts, edits, peer edits, content vs context
Testing: note taking, review, reference page, SAT/tests tricks, critical thinking
Organizing: prioritization, tidiness, planners, and calendars
Motivation: setting goals, values, and priorities, and self rewards
Resources: teachers/professors, parents, websites, and peers

Track & Field

I have participated in track and field for six years - four in high school and two in college. I have qualified for finals in throwing, jumping, and running during that time, so I have learned to requirements for each.

I have also trained others while in college. In terms of methodology and general health knowledge, I have taken college courses on physical wellness, been CPR certified, and learned several training styles, including cross training, and HIIT, so that I can train aspiring athletes with nutritional guidance and necessary recovery. I am also completing my physical trainer's certification for verifiable knowledge.
