Hi, I'm Brianna!

  • I am excited to be a part of the Smart Homes Tutoring family!  I love tutoring because it provides a space for personalized instruction that helps students thrive.  Everyone has their own unique learning styles and abilities, and one-on-one tutoring is the perfect opportunity to build upon those strengths.  Throughout my experience as a K-2 classroom teacher, I’ve held onto my belief that learning can and should be FUN.  My teaching philosophy is inspired in part by Ms. Frizzle, the unconventional science teacher from The Magic School Bus.  Her motto was “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!”  I encourage my students to take chances in their learning and view their mistakes with a growth mindset.  I challenge my students to think critically and use their strengths to problem solve.  Tutoring is so much fun for me because I can create engaging lessons tailored to the needs and interests of an individual student.  My goal is to help my students gain confidence and take an active interest in their learning.  When I am not teaching, I am exploring!  I enjoy just about anything outdoors with my dogs: walks on the greenbelt, hikes in the foothills, or belly rubs in the backyard.  I look forward to getting to know you!
