About Brittany

Are you looking for someone patient, flexible, and knowledgeable to help you meet your language goals? Allow me to share my passion for English to help you or your child do just that.

I enjoy working with all ages, and thrive on boosting student confidence in all areas of communication. My strategies vary on an individual basis; we will work together to find out what will make you succeed!

My BA is from Bethel University where I majored in English and minored in Art and Art History. I have studied in both the US and in Europe, and have traveled across 12 countries. I have a TESOL International teaching certificate and am also trained in the Berlitz Method of teaching languages. Currently I am working towards a Master's in English Education, as well as improving my Spanish (a lifelong goal).

I teach topics ranging from SAT/ACT/TOEFL Prep and American English Pronunciation to Essay Writing and Literature Comprehension (a personal favorite). I also provide proofreading and editing services. Please reach out to me to find out more about how I can help you reach your personal and/or professional goals!

Brittany was awesome

Brittany met me on very short notice and offered a lot of help finessing my essay for communications class. She is very knowledgeable of the MLA citation and Barry Brimmed ideologies of argument and the 4-Tropes. My professor told me that my paper was excellent. Thank you Brittany!!!
