About Brent

I have been a public policy adviser for 20 years, advising governors, legislators and other senior officials on making wise policy decisions. In this role, I've benefitted from a mastery of quantitative analysis and a pragmatic understanding of how the levers of government operate.

I took algebra beginning in 5th grade and scored an 800 on the math section of my SAT (and 790 on the similar section of the GRE). I especially enjoy algebra, as it provides a solid foundation for important aspects of business and life for years to come. I also enjoy writing concisely and effectively, as policy reform requires the distillation of technical knowledge into a comprehensible summary for decision makers.

Such work often requires proactive responses to stress, similarly to SAT or ACT preparation. I recently served as budget director in one of America's largest and most fiscally distressed cities, so I understand how to achieve success under pressure.

I have a passion for helping students enjoy learning the subjects I teach, and I look forward to sharing this passion with your family.

Brent is a great motivator, and my son went from F to A. — Brent structured studies with my 13 year old son based on my son's personal style of learning. His individual approach was the key that brought fast improvement of grades. Brent taught the main concept that allowed him to solve many similar problems, rather then repeatedly making him follow steps without understanding. My son has a very short attention span and gets bored instantly, so it is impo ...
