Business Philosophy & Experience

As a business executive, Dr. Bri clearly saw a need in the corporate space for more effective training to facilitate written and verbal communication, across all levels of management and leadership. While there, she created a Performance Management tool aimed at helping her teams learn new product information quickly and organically and smartly bring it to the customer base so they could best learn the features and benefits of new products and services. After leading all of her immediate teams across three different industries to unprecedented success, she founded Grammaticos and iGPS which synthesizes her extensive educational experience and qualifications in higher academia with her unique business acumen and perspective. Following the adage that ‘we expect what we inspect’ while in the business sector, she brought this behavior to the education management model as well. Our students learn through the program how to measure their work daily and how to achieve their goals by employing a fragmentation model and tracing their progress step by step.

To offer superior educational solutions to those who strive for academic excellence, robust learning foundations, competitive scores on standardized tests, and professional success across North America and the rest of the English-speaking world.​​
Grammaticos Virtual Learning was founded in the Pacific Northwest. 
Our reach now extends to hundreds of clients throughout North America, Asia, and Europe.​
After conducting an extensive, detailed study of academic curricula in both the U.S. and Canada and thoroughly reviewing thousands of standardized tests, in conjunction with our experience in business and education, we managed to isolate existing weaknesses in formal education and created a program to prepare our clients to compete successfully in education.
Our Standardized Testing has a 100% Success Rate thanks to our innovative and copyrighted educational tools and curriculum.
We have created a unique system of learning fully equipped with educational tools targeting the foundations of learning from Grade 1 to Graduate school. We pride ourselves on having created a comprehensive curriculum which fully supports all grades and levels of learning.

Hello everyone, I can’t help but share with you the delightful things. At lunch this morning, Steven asked me to introduce one of his classmates to Latin Lesson.
I asked him why, and he said, because it would help him learn French.
I said, really? Do you feel that? He said, yes, a lot of French and English are from Latin…
It is amazing that Steven benefits from learning Latin so soon, which is a very good start. I would like to thank all the teachers and friends for your recommendations, especially Dr. Bri for her professional teaching.
