About Brittany

My name is Brittany, I have a B.S. in Health Management from Howard University, and am originally from Compton, California. In college, I played on Howard Women’s Basketball team and love reading, drawing and dancing. I am passionate about healthcare and am currently pursuing my Master's in Health Information Management in order to contribute to improving access to healthcare for everyone.

I love tutoring because I have always loved helping people, but I have a passion for young people. I love teaching and nurturing youth to be all they can because I know what it meant to me for people to invest in me at an early age. I would not have achieved as much as I have and become a leader if I did not have people supporting me and encouraging me beyond what I thought I could do.

I have over 7 years of tutoring experience. In my most recent experience as a tutor for the Accelerated Mathematics Achievement (AMA) Program with Baltimore County Public Schools, after a year, I was asked to contribute to revising the curriculum and received a promotion to Lead Middle School Tutor.

In my work with revising the curriculum for the AMA Program, my contributions were valued because I found the best way to convey the 6th grade Common Core Math curriculum to students who had learning disadvantages.

I have worked in elementary and middle schools as a substitute teacher, academic coach, and a tutor over the past 10 years. I know the content, I have worked with every grade level, and I can now quickly observe the learning styles of students after working with them for a short period of time.

I am available M-F from 1pm - 7pm.
I can meet with students online and in-person.

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.

Common Core

In my most recent experience as a full-time in-school tutor for the Accelerated Mathematics Achievement (AMA) Program with Baltimore County Public Schools, I was asked to contribute to revising the Common Core curriculum after my first year. My contributions were valued because I found the best way to convey the 6th grade Common Core Math curriculum to students who had learning disadvantages with the result of improving their standardized test score by and average of 6 points. To complete that 2-year project, I became acquainted with 1st-7th grade common core curriculum because the students I taught were performing at different levels, and the goal of the program was to help students achieve grade-level and beyond. My goal for every lesson is to help students understand the content based on their learning style, so I adjust each lesson accordingly.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked in elementary and middle schools as a substitute teacher, academic coach, and a tutor over the past 10 years. I know the content in every subject, I have worked with every grade level, and I can now quickly observe the learning styles of students after working with them for a short period of time. I have experience improving the grade level performance of students as I have worked in intervention programs for the past 6 years where I had to meet students at their current grade level, understand their weaknesses in different areas, and coach them by giving the specialized practice in those areas in order to improve within or surpass their current grade level.
