About Brittany

I have taught high school Biology for seven years now. I have a degree in Health and Physical Education with certifications in Driver's Education and Biology. I have plans to start my Master's degree in Environmental Studies in the near future. I am experienced in preparing all of my classes for the Virginia Standardized SOL tests. I maintain a very high SOL pass rate of around 86-96% every year.
I enjoy designing lessons and simplifying content in such a way students can easily understand. I can teach anywhere from the Honors level to the Special Education level on my subject. I usually will relate the topics to real-life situations and find analogies that help students to learn and remember the material. When the student succeeds, I succeed!

In the Biology 1 subject we cover the topics of Scientific Method, Biochemistry, Ecology, Genetics, Taxonomy, Cells, DNA and more Microbiology.

Many students call me their favorite teacher. If you've always hated science, I can help!

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.

Biology

I have been a high school Biology teacher since 2008.

Genetics

Every semester I teach about basic Mendelian genetics. We do simple Punnett squares and word problems, then work our way up to harder Non-Mendelian genetics. Vocabulary is essential in understanding genetics. I have taught high school Biology for seven years now.

SOL

I remember taking the SOL when I was in high school and I can relate to the pressure and expectations. I have prepared students for the SOL test for 7 years and have succeeded in keeping a very high pass rate ranging from 86-100%. I can help with type of questions that may be asked and how to do your best.
