About Brittany

I've always loved learning anything and everything. I get so much joy sharing this love of learning with others. It can be hard work, but I think the end results are always worth it. I'm a soon-to-be graduate of Macalester College, with a major in Linguistics and a minor in Japanese. I have attained in-depth knowledge of English, and language in general, via my linguistics studies, and I have 4 years of Japanese studies under my belt, including a translation course. I also have an avid interest in psychology, and have taken a number of courses in the field. In addition, I have a total of 3.5 years of tutoring and teaching experience. Overall, language is my passion, and to be able to continue working in these fields in some fashion is truly a pleasure.

I specialize in grammar, proofreading, Japanese, and psychology for success in school, as well as for leisure (primarily for Japanese). I like to challenge students to use critical thinking in order to solve problems. I find students learn and retain information best when they are able to do it themselves rather than me explaining everything to them. Once the solution is figured out, I am happy to give more in-depth detail regarding the situation if the student is interested in learning "fun facts."

I hold myself to a high standard, I will expect students to maintain this same standard in their studies. I do, however, appreciate feedback. I will always try to take good, constructive feedback into account, and adapt my teaching methods accordingly.

I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, but I understand the need to be flexible with time. I will do my best to schedule makeup sessions, and to keep students going on the right track.

I look forward to hearing from you, and I can't wait to help you achieve your learning goals!

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.

Japanese

I studied Japanese at Macalester College in Saint Paul, MN. I met all the academic requirements of a Japanese major, save the semester study-abroad requirement. My four years of study had an emphasis on reading, writing, listening, and speaking, in addition to a number of culture classes and lessons. Additionally, I worked with a number of Japanese patrons at the Japan-America Society of Minnesota in 2013-2014, which allowed me to practice appropriate Japanese conversation skills.
