I am trained at the graduate level in Biochemistry with a detail and sound understanding of Chemical concepts. I also have a very strong Mathematical and quantitative background and I can assist you by providing affordable rates, test preparation and study skills and make scientific concepts clear and easy to reason.
I have developed a very deep passion for learning and I believe that the best days of any student are spent in a classroom. I see tutoring as a gift that I have been blessed with and a chance to return some of the knowledge and wisdom that I have acquired during my academic training to the community and students who want to succeed in Science.
During my graduate training at the University of Connecticut, I was an Instructor of Introductory Biochemistry. I worked mainly with undergraduates and delivered expertise instruction, while lecturing on biochemical concepts. I provided support and instruction when the students performed their experiments and graded their lab reports in a timely manner and provided them with one-on-one feedback for improvement. Apart from my teaching experience at the college level, I have been a Substitute Teacher for Grades K-12 as well as a Math and Science Private tutor.
A good tutor engages their students right throughout the session by posing questions and listening to the students feedback. It is the job of the tutor to help the student develop their thought processing. There should be a mixture of academic and practical material. Students tend to grasp concepts better and faster when they execute a problem or an experiment on their own. A good tutor will always recap what was taught in the last class and will never move onto another subject area, without the students having a good grasp of the important concepts. Of the most important, a good tutor should be patient and willing to explain concepts in multiple ways so that the student can understand.
A good tutor should provide mentorship (if asked) and advise students on deciding what career paths they feel comfortable taking. A great tutor cares for their students and wants their students to succeed and be outstanding citizens in whatever career paths they undertake. A good tutor would go about that role with grace and would never lose sight of the objective, no matter the challenges. It would truly be an honor to tutor you.
I value being able to help and mentor students into successful, productive citizens.
Very Enthusiastic — Brian helped my 16 year old understand concepts and fundamentals in Chemistry that he was struggling with. My son's confidence in the subject matter greatly increased. Brian also helped with his preparation for his Pre-calculus exam. Brian was extremely knowledgeable and I recommend him to anyone considering a tutor for Chemistry. He was able to connect with my son, and that is not an easy task to ...
