About Brittany

"Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music-the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself."
- Henry Miller

Hello! Are you looking for someone patient, flexible, and knowledgeable to help you or your student 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 communication. My strategies vary on an individual basis; we will work together to find out will make you or your child 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 to 12 countries. I have a TESOL international certificate for teaching and was also trained in the Berlitz method. Currently I am working towards a Master's in English and Education, as well as improving my Spanish (a lifelong goal!).

I teach topics ranging from TOEFL Prep and English Pronunciation to Essay Writing and Literature Comprehension (a personal favorite). Please don't hesitate to reach out to me to find out more about how I can help you reach your personal and/or professional goals!

It was a very great time to study with Brittany

She taught me how to speak some issues through appropriate expressions and pronunciation. Also, she introduced some articles for me, and they are useful source for preparing my presentation in my class at school. She is very kind and patient. The most great part of the lesson was that she helps me to have a confidence in speaking English. I would like to continue to learning English with her.
