Hello, my name is Brian. I was recently a professional tutor at Southwestern Michigan College. During my study at SMC I was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. I bring prior experience to my tutoring sessions from the start because I am also a tutor at college with CRLA certification. I am also a member of the Michigan Tutoring Association. Membership in this association gives me access to extra resources that can help me tutor anyone that needs help with their classes. I look at each person individually and adjust my tutoring style to fit each of my sessions to those students and their needs.

I currently tutor college level math and sciences including Algebra I, Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, Art, and Computer courses. I also assist my children in their elementary school subjects, mainly math and science. If there is a subject that I can help you with drop me a note and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I look forward to helping you succeed in your educational goals.
