About the lesson

My Tutoring Approach

The best way to learn something is to teach it. –I embrace this idea in my approach to tutoring, where I have the student teach the material to me. I believe this is a more positive approach because it encourages the student by focusing on their strengths instead of their weaknesses, so they can have the confidence they need. This approach also results in better understanding of the material, because it makes the student think about not only 'how' when solving a problem, but also 'why'.

About Brittany

I am an upperclassman Mechanical Engineering and Physics major at TCU, with research interests in Semiconductor Materials and Plasma Physics. I have a passion for STEM education. I have participated in multiple research opportunities on campus--from cancer drug manufacturing research with an esteemed Welch Chair to industry-contracted materials research for Lockheed Martin. In Spring 2013, I won the Engineering Department award at the Student Research Symposium for my work, and soon after some of my chemistry research was published in ACS's research magazine.

As a student, I have always been well respected and looked up to by my peers, and as such have often been offered tutoring and mentoring positions. Since middle school I have been in a variety of peer-tutoring programs where I helped other students prepare for state exams, as well as homework help. Throughout high school I was on a list of approved tutors for a variety of subjects, and my Junior year of high school I began tutoring AP/College level courses. Since moving to college, I have continued one-on-one and group tutoring, specifically in courses relating to Science, Math, and Engineering, although there are a few others I occasionally tutor for as well. In addition, I have experience with science education as a Gallery Presenter at the Perot Museum. I also have much experience with and am very comfortable with tutoring those with learning and social disabilities.

I've heard people say that the best way to learn is to teach. I embrace this idea in my approach to tutoring, where I have the student walk me through what they understand, so together we can explore what they don't. In my over 10 years of tutoring experience, I have found this positive approach allows the student to see how much knowledge they actually already have at their disposal. It encourages the student and gives them the confidence they need approaching their coursework. My job is to give students the tools necessary to be able to understand, analyze, and work through problems on their own.

For SAT or ACT test prep I usually recommend 12 hours of tutoring sessions for those who have not taken the exam before, usually four 3-hour sessions, but we can work with your schedule and your student's needs. This time allows us to go through each section's expectations in depth and cover best approaches for each.

My own score on the ACT was a 34, and my SAT 2280.
