Brittany

I specialize in tutoring language arts and law. I am passionate about the language arts, and I might have been the only 8th grade student ever to be excited about diagramming sentences! I believe in a more relaxed method of teaching because frustration can occur easily while learning. By breaking down the material into pieces, I believe the difficulties a student faces become less overwhelming and he or she can focus on one piece at a time. This allows the student to have that "aha" moment as he or she begins to understand each piece, and then, it motivates the student to continue forward. I feel this approach can be used in almost any subject with any age student.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in a more relaxed method of teaching, because frustration can occur easily while learning. By breaking down the material into pieces, I believe the difficulties a student faces become less overwhelming, and he or she can focus on one piece at a time. This allows the student to have that "aha" moment as he or she begins to understand each piece. Then, it motivates the student to continue forward.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In the first few minutes, I would ask the student what he or she knows, what he or she wants to know, and then, we will come up with a plan to reach that goal.
