About Brienne

I tutor Reading Comprehension and Writing skills for students from Preschool through Adult education, with specialization in College Writing, SAT/ACT strategies, and College Application Support and Advising. I have over 16 years of tutoring experience working with students on specific skills tailored to their individual needs and strengths.

I have a Masters degree in English, and have worked with preschoolers, K-12, college and adult learners.

I work with gifted and alternative learners, and I delight in assisting my students to learn through meaningful and relevant ways that foster life-long learning.

My goal is to ignite a genuine curiosity for knowledge-gathering by teaching my students how to apply their studies to their lives. My passion is to encourage students to become critical thinkers and life-long learners.

I am also a certified yoga instructor, expressive writing teacher, and am available for blog writing and manuscript editing.
