Tutor & SAT/ACT Program Manager
Betsy Pittman is the Clayborne SAT/ACT program manager and a language-loving verbal tutor. After earning her bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Appalachian State University, Betsy spent three years on active duty as an Army officer. She then felt called to leverage her experience leading and guiding soldiers in the realm of education. Each time a student recognizes his or her own linguistic strength, Betsy feels reaffirmed in this calling. Outside of the classroom, Betsy is a loose-leaf tea purist, sudoku hobbyist, and self-taught baker. She treasures empathy, laughter, and good books that contain both.
Although she moved to Charlottesville for the educational opportunities, the town’s old-world charm and natural beauty have charmed her into calling it home.
