About Brittney

One of my biggest passions in life is working with children to help make a difference in their life. The way I hope to do that is by teaching them and making learning a fun process for them. Throughout my education I have had the benefit of learning from some amazing teachers who made my learning both exciting and challenging, which made me excited to learn. It is my goal to do this with every child I am given the opportunity to teach.

I have recently graduated from Regent University with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies, which is Regent's Elementary Education program. I also am certified through the Virginia Department of Education to teach grades PreK-6th. To achieve this I completed two eight-week student teaching placements, the first in a fourth grade class and the second in a first grade class.

My areas of expertise are all elementary subjects such as Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. However, I am confident that I would be more than able to help middle or high school students with English (i.e. grammar, literature, vocabulary, reading, or writing) or Social Studies/History. My goal is to take whatever subject the student is struggling with and break it down into easy to chunks that are easy to manage and understand. Once they have grasped one section we will move on to the next. By using this strategy I want to make sure that the student is at all times being challenged to learn, but not overwhelmed. Also I want to ensure that they are being engaged in what they are learning. Through my studies and teaching experience I have learned that active engagement is the key to increasing a student's learning.

For my tutoring I hold myself to a high standard, and am constantly seeking to improve my skills and professional abilities. For this reason, I would appreciate frequent feedback as to how I am doing so that I know what is working well, and what needs improvement.

My schedule is fairly flexible. If you need to cancel a session I require at least a 2-hour notification, but it would be best to notify me as soon as possible. I do offer makeup sessions for those that are cancelled.

As for tutoring locations, I am flexible with that as well. Whatever environment would work best for the student's learning is fine with me. If they prefer to stay at home I can come to you or they are welcome to come to my home or we could meet at another location such as a library.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! I look forward to hearing from you and helping your student achieve success in their studies.

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.
