About Brittany

My main goal in life is to make a difference in the lives of others and I believe that I can achieve this through tutoring. I enjoy working with students at all levels because I enjoy the challenge and love to help others grow no matter where their starting point may be. I have a strong background in English, Communication Arts and Elementary Studies. I desire to use my skills to create multiple ways for my students to learn material in an interesting manner. Overall, I want to inspire others to be the best person that they can be and to teach my students that they truly can achieve anything with hard work and dedication.

I received my Master's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, focusing on Communication Studies and Writing, from Cal State University, Northridge. I completed my Bachelor's degree in Youth Theatre at San Diego State University. I have experience working with students in grades K-college. I have worked as a Youth Arts Program Director, where I have taught creative writing, performing arts, and public speaking classes. I have also served as a teacher for Teach for America in Las Vegas, where I taught Reading, Writing, and Drama to middle school students. I have six years of tutoring experience in Math, Reading, Writing, Public Speaking, Elementary Studies and Performing Arts. I believe that communication is a crucial part of our lives and desire to teach my students how to best utilize this skill to be successful in life. I want to share my passion for learning with my students by catering to their individual learning needs and interests, which will optimize their success.
