About Briana


Bio

My philosophy of education is hands-on experience and engaging students through questioning and exploration to ensure long-term retention. I currently teach middle school math and science part-time at a private school. I also have experience teaching high school math and science, with my expertise being in math, physics, and chemistry. While attending college, I worked in a Physics Learning Lab for three years focusing on student understanding in both one-on-one and small group situations....

My philosophy of education is hands-on experience and engaging students through questioning and exploration to ensure long-term retention. I currently teach middle school math and science part-time at a private school. I also have experience teaching high school math and science, with my expertise being in math, physics, and chemistry. While attending college, I worked in a Physics Learning Lab for three years focusing on student understanding in both one-on-one and small group situations. Before that, I was a tutor primarily for High School and Running Start students.

I love working with students of all ages and ability. My priority is to understand the student's needs and meet them as quickly as possible. Much of the time, I am able to address study and homework habits and help students help themselves within a matter of a few weeks. When a student and tutor find a good fit, it is often easy to do drop-in sessions to quickly pick up a few concepts when each party knows and trusts the other. I look forward to building that trust.

I prefer for students to meet at the Monroe Public Library. Depending on your location, I may request some drive-time billing as well.

easy to talk to

Pre-calculus. Briana was nice, cheerful and easy to talk to. She was very concerned about me being successful vs. the number of sessions. She taught me how to find the info and how to study using my textbook, and strongly encouraged study groups with friends. I have more motivation and confidence. I will meet with her again.

Bonnie, 4 lessons with Briana

Patient & Thoughtful

Briana is very perceptive. She has taken the time to get not just our Son but the family back on track. She is helping not only with Math concepts but also with note taking skills so that our Son has a point of reference for self study.

Angelina, 17 lessons with Briana

Excellent Tutor and Mentor

Briana has been very helpful to provide my daughter with what she needs to succeed in Algebra. Her tips and feedback to my daughter and I have exceeded our expectations and made this process successful. We very much appreciate her continued support.

Gary, 5 lessons with Briana

Great patient teacher!

I have had a great experience with Briana, and appreciate how intelligent she is and how good she is at explaining things to me! She is just what I needed!

Linda, 4 lessons with Briana

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Briana has been the best tutor we have worked with through WyzAnt. She is flexible regarding scheduling and great at speaking my daughter's language. It was amazing how many subjects she was able to help with! She just has the heart of a teacher and is a good listener as well, which can really help with teenagers. If you are looking for someone in this area, you can't go wrong.

Amy, 2 lessons with Briana

Very Knowledgeable!

There is no doubt that Briana is very knowledgeable. However, my daughter left more confused than when she started. My daughter's learning style and Briana's teaching style were not in sync.

Kim, 1 lesson with Briana

Very competent, great attitude!

Briana is so knowledgeable with high school math and beyond, and comfortable with teenagers. It's a pleasure to work with her and a delight to see my daughter remembering concepts that she hadn't thought about in many months. Briana is trustworthy and encouraging. A natural teacher!
