My name is Bruce. I've been teaching in public schools for twenty-five years. I've done this because I love to see students learn. I've also tutored many learners in many subjects. I can help learners in Music (guitar and piano are my primary instruments). Also, having spent two and one-half decades in elementary schools, with a few years in high schools adding to my pedagogical experiences, there are numerous disciplines that I am highly qualified to teach in.
I hold a B.A. in Music with a minor in English. I also hold an M.A. in Teaching. I have received one of the two highest ratings from my administrators for the last twenty years. I am very familiar with a variety of learning styles and I believe that this is the reason why I have been successful with so many students.
I truly have a love of learning and it is my goal to impart this love to every student that I come into contact with. Please contact me so that we can get started in getting ahead.
