About Brittany

I have been working with students since I was a young teenager. My love of teaching started when I was just a young student myself. I grew up tutoring other peers and then tutoring younger students. I went to school and became certified in Childhood Education and Special Education 1-6. I did an undergraduate in Criminal Justice and Juvenile studies. I am well rounded and have experienced in working with students from grades first through twelve but specialize greatly in grades 1-6. I have proven results helping students in ELA, Math. Social Studies, and Science. I am a hands on teacher and learner as many students are. I incorporate many learning styles to the way I teach which maximizes learning. Teaching with more than just standard lectures really helps students grasp hard concepts.

I love tutoring because it allows me to have a more one on one experience with a student who is struggling and not getting all they require in today's larger classrooms. Society is growing and classrooms are very large. A lot of students need a little extra attention to reach their academic potential. I want to help students and this is the best way I know how.

I can be available evenings and weekends and flexible hours. I am new to this service, WyzAnt, but I have years of experience teaching students.

I specialize in understanding Common Core Math Standards and I am able to incorporate these standards in a hands on academic program. I am able to design pretests and postest to constantly evaluate students learning.

My Master's degree was based on learning, understanding, and developing lessons designed with the NYS Common Core as a foundation. I have several work samples to show for a variety of subjects. Common core can be overwhelming, big, and daunting, but I feel I am able to read through them, and then design a supplemental academic program which aligns with the standards that are better understood.

I am dual certified in Childhood 1-6. I have over 100 fieldwork hours working with students from whole classes to one on one students.

I am certified in Special Education 1-6. I have experience working with a group home specializing in students with learning disabilities. I have worked with students with Autism, LD, ED, and OHI. I have designed FBA's, BIP's and IEP's with school personal. I also have experience in behavior management and crisis management.

I have a love for teaching and learning, as I am a lifetime student. I have the experience required to help students really reach their goals. I hope to hear from you soon so we together can move forward and learn!

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.

I have over twenty work samples of lesson plans based on the NYS Common Core for documentation. I also passed my Edtpa for NYS Certification which is based on the Common Core.
