About Briyana

Hi! I have been teaching ever since I tried to make my younger brother play "school" for fun. I am now an educator, artist, and published writer. I graduated with a BA in Sociology from Princeton University and have a strong background in writing, research, and the social sciences. My tutoring strengths lie with paper-writing, college essays, reading, writing, history, social studies, and presentation preparation. I have also helped many students with their college application process and am able to provide college counseling as well.

Since I was in high school, I have been working with students to help them understand challenging concepts and improve their academic confidence. I have worked as a literacy tutor, substitute teacher, and after school program instructor with students from kindergarten through high school. Because people do not learn in the same ways, I always take the time to find out what students are interested in and how they learn best. I am skilled at both lesson planning and curricula development and am ready to plan the program that works best for you or your student! I also have a background in theatre and love to incorporate fun and energy into my sessions.

Whether you need assistance with a high school English class or with your college admission essays, I can help! Please contact me to learn more or schedule a session. I look forward to connecting with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I also have taught college awareness/readiness classes to high school freshman, have lead college tours for students from low-income areas, and have spoken to special groups that came to visit my campus about the college experience and applying to college. I have also assisted high school students with their college admissions process. In general, I am very knowledgable about personal and structural barriers to getting to college and the different factors people consider when applying to school. I feel strongly that students should feel empowered to do what's best for them (and their families) even when faced with such big decisions.

Proofreading

I got a perfect score (800) on the writing section of the SAT. I am great with editing and regularly edit, copyedit, and proofread documents for school and work, including essays, research papers, and marketing materials.

Sociology

I majored in Sociology at Princeton University. I also minored in African American Studies, Urban Studies, and Latin American Studies. I utilized ethnographic methods in my senior thesis, which focused on activism in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.

Theatre

I have been doing theatre since I was in the 6th grade and am studying Drama and Theatre for Youth and Communities in graduate school. In addition to being a performer, director, and stage manager, I have led middle school drama clubs and taught a theatre and activism class for high school girls.
