I believe the most important thing a tutor can do for a student is create an environment that they feel comfortable and capable of learning and making mistakes in, because failure is an important part of learning. It is our job as tutors to be advocates of our students, which means providing encouragement, empowerment, and an ear to listen to their concerns.
It is important that students have goals and an idea of what they want to get out of tutoring before starting in order get the most out of our lessons.
I started tutoring in 2016 as an English and Mathematics tutor at Kumon Learning Center, where I taught mostly K-6 grade students. In 2017 I joined the Girlstart non-profit working as a STEM Crew intern and program instructor, where I travel to elementary schools and teach science lessons to 4th and 5th grade girls. Most recently, under EzyMath Tutoring, I tutored college level Calculus while studying abroad in Australia. While most of my tutoring experience is in mathematics, I am completely qualified to tutor biology and chemistry, as I have taken multiple college courses in these subjects.

Brittany is an extremely knowledgeable, attentive and patient teacher who has great attention to detail and displays extensive dedication to her students. She fosters a learning environment which caters for different types of students and puts great care into maximizing each students' potential by focusing on teaching them with their preferred style of learning. Overall, I would highly recommend Brittany as a teacher! Not to mention she’s also really fun and friendly.
Brittany is someone who is committed to learning and constantly seeks to improve herself. Working with her these past months has been an absolute pleasure, allowing me to see firsthand her exemplary abilities as a teacher. She has a get-it-done attitude and will not hesitate to provide help whenever it is requested. I truly believe that she is a trustworthy teacher and I hope my recommendation has provided some insight in the integrity of her character.
Brittany has several years of tutoring experience with elementary, middle, and high school age children. She is very patient and able to adapt/adjust different strategies to the target population. For example, a younger child who she was tutoring had a difficult time focusing and showing interest in math. Instead of using standard flash cards and reciting the multiplication table, she devised a math game on the computer to capture his interest. Not everyone learns in the same manner but when a student can get excited about learning a new subject it can leave a lasting impression. Brittany has the patience, knowledge and insight to help motivate a student and these are qualities that make her an excellent tutor.
