I have taught a variety of ages and academic levels, ranging from preschool-aged children to college-level learners. My first goal is to develop an understanding of each student's academic obstacles, which allows me to adapt my teaching methods accordingly. This also gives me the ability to teach at the student's level of understanding, reinforce their learning potential, and further accentuate their unique strengths.

About Britany S.

Hi, there! My name is Brit and I am 25 years old. I am a native English speaker and I am from the state of Arizona in the United States of America.

I have been teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language to online learners for two years and I have more than 6 years of academic coaching experience. I obtained an internationally recognized teaching qualification by completing the 120 Hour Accredited TEFL Certification course with High Distinction. In addition, I am a student at Harvard University Division of Continuing Education, which is a part of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard.
I strive to positively influence each of my students in ways that will enhance their learning skills and help them become confident in themselves, both in and out of the classroom.

Teaching allows me to share my love of learning and I hope it will help to open the minds and doors of opportunity for each of my students.

If you want to learn or improve your english, Brit can definitely help you. She is a very intelligent person, she is patient, and she will do her best to help you study. She has the ability to help students with every level of English because of her studies and experiences with all types of students. I love her lessons and she has helped me with my English more than I ever expected.

Miss Brit has been teaching my daughter English as a Foreign Language online for many many months now and I am very grateful for all she has helped with. My daughter is young and happy but she unfortunately struggles with anxiety and depression that has resulted in her missing out on a lot of things. Brit has helped my daughter with her language speaking abilities and has guided her through what has been a difficult time simply through motivation and encouragement. Miss Brit is more than just qualified and experienced in these disciplines, but she also is passionate about providing beautiful knowledge and guidance to her students. Her passion is impossible to ignore and she radiates optimism.
My daughter's grade point average increased from 2.8 to a whopping 3.2 in just 4 months and she has also made new friends and is blooming with confidence.
Brit has undeniably changed my daughter's life in a wonderful way.
