About Brittney

**NOTE: I am currently out of the country. So I am only available to tutor online. However, I will be back in the Bay Area in April, and I will be available to tutor in person. **

Hello!

I am a recent graduate from UC Berkeley, and I have two Bachelors degrees in English Literature and Media Studies/Communications.

Primarily I am an English tutor, but I have experience tutoring students of all ages (elementary to adult age) in many subjects such as psychology, history, sociology, math etc.

Through Diablo Valley College (DVC) I am a certified English tutor, and through DVC I have gained a wide array of experience. Primarily I have worked with ESL students, but I have also worked with students with disabilities such as ADD as well as deaf students. Also, I was a supplemental instructor at DVC in which I led and prepared lessons for a classroom of about 30 ESL students

I also have experience working with middle school/high school age students on study skills. In fact, I have led a three-part study skills workshop through the Contra Costa Library system for 3 years.

Through my experience, I have learned to identify a student's need quickly; therefore, your time will be very well spent. :) I also utilize many different tutoring methods which I have acquired through my time tutoring. I love learning, and I love helping students! I enjoy witnessing students grow, and I love helping them along their journey.

You are welcome to ask for a resume if you would like!

I look forward to hearing for you!

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.

English

I have mainly worked with college students on reading strategies and essay writing, and I have mainly worked with ESL students. However, I could definitely help out your child with 5th grade work. I know what is expected for English skills in high school and college, so I can assure your child will not only have help now but will also be prepared for the coming years.

ESL/ESOL

Also, I have worked one on one with students, and I will be an instructional aide for an ESL class in the fall, meaning I will lead and prepare lesson plans for a large study group of students, particularly ESL students.

Reading

I have a lot experience tutoring reading to students of all different ages and levels. In fact, reading and writing are primarily what I tutor.

Study Skills

I am a certified tutor at a college. My training is mainly in English; however, the program works so that I am capable of tutoring any subject. We placed a lot of emphasis on study skills and how to tutor study skills such as reading strategies, note taking strategies, writing strategies, and good student behavior ( I.e classroom participation, and communication with teachers and peers).
