If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

To help you meet your academic goals, I will help you to learn more effectively and more efficiently. I ask what-if questions to check for understanding and help you see the relationships between concepts. I include strategies for studying, taking tests, and coping with the stress that students encounter. Between sessions, I will happily answer short questions off the clock by phone or by email.

For math students, I will help you translate the English in word problems into mathematical expressions that can be solved. You will improve your ability to use formulas and to know which formula to use. As needed, I will show you how to use the graphing calculator, Excel or both.

For accounting and finance students, I will walk you through how data flows through the accounting records from transactions to financial statements, how to analyze transactions so you can correctly record them, and how to interpret and analyze financial statements. As needed, I will show you how to use the financial calculator, Excel or both.

I have a bachelor's degree in math and a master's degree in accounting. I hold a Texas Lifetime Teacher Certificate in Secondary Math (grades 6 -12). I taught high school math in DeSoto, TX and Denver, CO. I taught supplemental math classes in the Dallas ISD in grades 3-6 for the nonprofit agency, Project SEED.

I have tutored students from grade 4 through graduate business school. I have been a private tutor in North Texas and Denver as well as a tutor at a community college and a university.

I am a certified public accountant with over ten years experience in public, commercial, nonprofit, and government accounting. I have taught accounting at the college level and bookkeeping in a non-credit adult education program.

- Matt, Irving, TX on 7/21/11
Brian replied on 9/11/2011

Matt was offered a refund and declined it. He seemed to have spent little time actually studying; he had questions on most of the problems on his written assignments. His course used ALEKS software. Equations that were easily graphed with a Texas Instruments graphing calculator presented problems in with the ALEKS graphing feature. I referred him to his professor.

Exceptional teacher and tutor — Mr. Brian greatly helped our son with the middle school math that he had not been exposed to at school and advanced to a level that was much higher than expected. He even makes time to come if an additional need arises, however short the notice is. He is very patient and explains concepts in ways that a student can clearly understand.
