I am available to tutor students in biology, chemistry, history, English and reading comprehension (among many others). My tutoring method is highly effective and goes beyond superficial fixes to common learning issues. My strategy is to work from the bottom up; creating a solid foundation upon which more advanced problem-solving methods can be developed. I have worked extremely hard to achieve a high level of success in the sciences and I know first-hand the common pitfalls and difficulties experienced by students. I am very accessible, down-to-Earth and very good at getting others to understand without feeling intimidated or judged (a feeling I’ve had myself when I asked for tutoring help). I am confident that I can help anyone achieve a higher score and solid understanding of these subjects while having fun as well!

I love organic chemistry! I earned an A+ for both semesters and have tutored the subject privately and publicly for about two years. I was the senior tutor at Einstein's Corner Tutoring Center at Purchase College for several years where I tutored both general and organic chemistry. I am also the recipient of the American Chemical Society’s Division of Organic Chemistry Award!
Super Tutor! — Brian has been tutoring my daughter for her chemistry honors class this past year. When she started the class in school, she found the first couple of tests very tough. Once Brian came on board, things changed, she quickly grasped an understanding for the subject and went on to perform extremely well in school. In May, all the honors students in their school district take the Avogadro Exam, a very ...
