About Brittany

I hold a bachelor's degree in English writing and possess varied teaching experience. I have instructed creative writing workshops with the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project through the Young Writers Institute at the Cathedral of Learning to middle school students. Some of my other experience includes teaching art and writing through the Community Arts Center of Cambria County and the Greater Johnstown school district during after-school and summer-school programming. I have been working as a private writing tutor for about two years and primarily teach essay writing, research writing, creative writing and reading comprehension.

As an English tutor, my primary goal is to motivate students to uncover the benefits and the value of the practice of reading and writing. I believe that every student is able to be inspired by the act of writing and literature. As with most skills, practicing is a large component in helping students achieve comfort when writing and sharing what they've wrote. I believe that the habit of writing, whether it be fiction or nonfiction, is highly beneficial to constructing a sense of self and confidence for the student.

I encourage attention to detail and student habits within his/her individual reading and writing habits. The ability to maintain strong, positive relationships through encouragement. The assigning of homework, and follow-up response of that work.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
