Hi everyone, my name is Brian. If you are considering Math subject tutoring or Math SAT tutoring, look no further! I am a graduate of Boston College, and Math has always been my strongest subject. I want to sit down and work with students to look at what is giving them problems either with Math subjects in school or with the SAT. No more worrying about those Math classes and tests in school, and no anxiety for the SAT!

If you need to address problems with Pre-algebra, Algebra, or any other level of Algebra you will be happy to hear that Algebra has always been my strongest subject. It is where I always earned my highest grades, and where I learned all of the concepts quickly and easily. When I work with students I like to use my Math skills to first make sure students understand all the concepts that come at them in school. Then I spend time teaching strategies for tackling specific types of questions on tests in school or on the SAT.

When you need to take the SAT test I can help you earn a great score on the Math portion. When I took the SAT test, for the Math portion I earned a score of 800 (out of 800 possible points). Yes, a perfect score! I know how important it is to earn a high standardized test score to help get accepted into college--I want to make it easier for you to earn that higher score!

In an earlier tutoring program I was part of, I worked with high school students living in a group home in the Philadelphia area. I provided 1-on-1 tutoring lessons for them, either for Math school subjects in general or to prepare for tests. In the strong majority of my recent lessons I have tutored students to be better prepared for Math classes in school and to get ready for quizzes, tests, and exams. Throughout my lessons with these current students, they seem to be understanding school material more clearly, and their grades have been improving.

For adults and kids, I can offer tutoring and assistance in other subjects - GRE prep, writing help (papers, essays), using Microsoft Office, public speaking, and other subjects.

Please send me a message so we can talk about scheduling tutoring lessons. I look forward to hearing from you.

General Computer

If you are looking to learn your way around using a computer, let me help you! I have almost 20 years experience using computers, and want to help show you how to be more comfortable around them. My experience includes home use (typing documents, using the Internet, viewing and working with photos, etc.), use in school (creating documents, spreadsheets, presentations, Internet research, etc.), and use in the workforce (sending individual and group emails, creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations).

But before we get into details, let me help you start to use the basics of the computer-the keyboard and mouse, basic typing, then we can use your computer to look at family photos, perform research on the Internet, and anything else that you need.

Public Speaking

Let's conquer that fear of speaking in public! Remember, it begins with you-what you know, what you want to tell/teach someone, etc. I will make sure you can deliver all of what you already have, to any audience. This can be to groups in high school, college, or in a work setting.

My public speaking experience began almost 18 years ago, in competitive debate. It involved researching and becoming an advocate for a topic, and delivering a speech detailing my point of view. Later in competitive speaking, I learned to memorize written material (plays, stories) and deliver the material to audiences of all sizes - anywhere from 10-15 people to a large room of 300 people. In a professional setting, I was often required to prepare training materials and deliver short presentations to as little as 1-3 people and as many as 10 people.

Let me help you feel confident in public speaking! I can teach you voice techniques, body techniques, and delivery techniques, to make your speaking as clear as possible! I can make sure you will be able to clearly present and deliver what you need, and that you are not nervous or have any anxiety while doing it!
