About Britt

When I earned my PhD in Chemistry, I was following in my father's footsteps. He helped to guide my sense of wonder and joy in discovery. This fostered my love of teaching and learning which I took a traditional instructor setting. Over the past 14 years, I have enjoyed helping students gain a greater appreciation and understanding of chemistry and mathematics. However, my greatest satisfaction came during helping students one on one.

I adapt the chemistry or math lessons to the needs and questions of just that one student. I want my students to understand how and why, and not to focus on just the correct answer. As your tutor, I will be your guide or coach as you work to reach your goals. I won't spoon-feed you answers nor focus on rote memorization. We will work on understanding the methods of solving problems. We will also work to develop foundations upon which we will build more complex knowledge. I am currently able to only work with college students via WyzAnt.

Each tutoring session will involve a short review of what we've worked on, an extended time to address current questions or problems, and a short recap. I will have sample problems to work on during the session as well as some extra problems for you to work on until the next meeting.

I welcome any feedback that you have and will tailor your tutor experience so you can achieve your goals.
