Brittany Robbins

Brittany Robbins

Brittany was born and raised in sunny Southwest Florida. She graduated summa cum laude from Florida Gulf Coast University and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. Upon graduation, she spent time working as a Children’s Mental Health Case Manager and then transitioned into the field of education, where she worked as an Academic Advisor for students in grades 7 – 12.

Although the private K-12 school she worked in was prestigious, Brittany began to sense that she wanted a different type of education for her own family when that time arrived. Many years later, Brittany achieved her dream of being a homeschooling mom to two fantastic boys. In 2015, Brittany completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training certification and began instructing in a large homeschool co-op in Pittsburgh, PA, where her family was living at the time.

Since 2016, she has coached over twenty students in grades 4 – 8 on a total of five FIRST LEGO League teams; two of these teams have competed in the Florida State Championship! The FIRST global robotics programs provide students with hands-on STEM experiences in the areas of research, problem solving, coding, and engineering. Her original team, the Edisonian Bots, is named in tribute to Thomas Edison who was not only homeschooled himself, but was also a Southwest Florida resident!

In her spare time, Brittany can be found volunteering with her sons’ Boy Scouts of America units, spending time with friends, and hanging out at the library. Brittany’s two favorite authors are, coincidentally, both British women: Jane Austen and JK Rowling.

Such a Fun Class

Rated 5 out of 5

The Lego Design Series is such a fun class! It’s also much more than just playing with LEGO pieces. Currently, they’re creating a mini movie (2 minutes or less), learning about plots and characters, etc. In the past, they created environmentally sustainable cities, built a base to support life on the moon, and a few others. It has helped my daughter really dig into her creative side.

Absolutely recommend

Rated 5 out of 5

After deciding to homeschool this year, I searched high and low for an online class for our youngest child in order to grant me a small built-in break in my week and enable me to focus on some of our other children. I could not be more thrilled with the outcome of this enrollment! As a fellow teacher I was quick to see that Mrs. Brittany Robbins teaches this class with extraordinary classroom management skills and creates an engaging and welcome atmosphere. My newly-minted 7yo was transported into a classroom where she made friends and connected with others. The class is engaging and encouraging to new readers and emerging readers alike. The emphasis on vocabulary expansion has enabled me to shift my other curriculum studies with her. I would absolutely recommend any class with Mrs. Robbins for any child of any age in the future!

The Best Class She Could Imagine

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter LOVES Mrs. Robbins’ Harry Potter class. She says the class is “the best class she could imagine.” I appreciate that Mrs. Robbins sneaks in plenty of vocabulary, comprehension checks, and reading practice alongside the fun. We immediately signed up for the follow up class!

Brings history to life

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter just loves this class. History is so different when it’s taught in this perspective. My daughter couldn’t learn enough, even aside from class reading, we looked for more books, videos, and any information we could find. It’s always a pleasure to have Miss Brittany as a teacher. She’s so encouraging and really keeps the kids engaged.

Five star class with the best OTA early elementary teacher!!

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter felt very grown up participating in this class each week and really looked forward to Tuesdays so she could see her classmates and participate through sharing what she learned. It encouraged her to start reading more on her own while accepting kids who weren’t there yet.

Great for Harry Potter fans!

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter has recently gone on a Harry Potter kick. She loves all things Harry Potter and looked forward to this class all week. She came to class in costume and got to talk with other kids about one of her favorite topics. Great class and highly recommended!

Great for reluctant readers!

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter loved this class. She is an “emerging” reader, but not really motivated to read. But she loved the content or this course and the creative things they did together. She looked forward to this class all week. Highly recommend!

M. LOVED your class. She felt so empowered to give it her all because of your amazing ability to teach and encourage the students. M. learned so much, not just about space but also on how to complete different kinds of projects, work in groups, and give presentations. Thank you so much for an amazing semester!!!

Great class with a great teacher!

Rated 5 out of 5

My 11 year old son loved this class with miss brittany! She does an amazing job of keeping the kids engaged and interacting throughout the class. She really wants all her students to enjoy the class and feel successful. She (and her son) went out of her way to help my son finish his final project after our computer died and took his project with it. We can’t wait to do more classes with her!

So much more then legos

Rated 5 out of 5

This class has really helped my daughter think outside of the box. In addition to building cities and learning about important social and environmental aspects of the community, the children are given the opportunity to explore different medias to express in their creative process. Mrs. Brittany is truly amazing and really knows how to get the best out of each student.

Great class

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter absolutely adores Mrs. Brittany! Although she is comfortable reading, this class has really helped her learn her how to organize her thoughts, write and summarize ideas; it has also expanded her vocabulary. We were thinking of switching to the history class but she begged us to stay with this class next semester; you can’t have better proof of a class then a kid begging to work

A fun way to learn

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter is an emerging reader and has gained so much from this class. Brittany inspires the students and it’s so much more than a literature series. My daughter has never been so excited to work on reading. She wants to do this class on her own, she just loves her teacher. It has helped her not only with reading, but to listen and comprehend as well. I will continue to put her in the MTH classes.

Magical Class!

Rated 5 out of 5

This was our first class at OTA and it was a wonderful experience. As a parent, I found the class description very enticing and felt pretty confident that my (almost) 9 year old daughter would enjoy it. I couldn’t even finish reading the class description to her before she excitedly shouted, “YES! I WANT TO TAKE THAT CLASS!”
Ms. Robbins made the class engaging and fun from the beginning–starting with the arrival of an acceptance letter to Hogwarts! My daughter loved dressing up in her robe, getting ready for class,and enjoyed the classwork. As a traditional homeschooling family, my daughter also enjoyed the company of other students. Ella’s favorite part of class was the read alouds when Ms. Robbins would read using “voices” for different characters…”Not every teacher does that Mom, that’s cool,” my daughter said. We would highly recommend this class as it’s a great way to make learning fun and engaging. If you have a Harry Potter fan, don’t miss out on this class!

It’s the perfect storm of learning for her! YAY! Thank you!!!

A Wonderful Experience

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter is currently taking the LEGO Design Series – Build Your City and it has been a wonderful experience for her. Ms. Brittany has encouraged her so much and she’s come out of her shell and is actually participating in class. She tells me each day how excited she is for class again. She’s constantly brainstorming for her weekly assignments. I’m thrilled watching my daughter grow from such a fun and unique class.

My daughter has absolutely loved this Magic Tree House literature series

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter has absolutely loved the Magic Tree House literature series. They read a little in class and get a little to read as homework. The vocabulary has definitely helped my daughter learn many new words. The extra activities are fun too. She just loved helping make a sword and shield for The Knight at Dawn. We’re both looking forward to the upcoming classes.
