Bio

I believe that every student can learn. This has been my cornerstone philosophy in teaching my entire career. I believe in engaging my students in the learning process and challenging them to learn concepts that can then apply to any problem. I believe that fun is an integral part of learning and try to incorporate it into every lesson.

I believe that every student can learn. This has been my cornerstone philosophy in teaching my entire career. I believe in engaging my students in the learning process and challenging them to learn concepts that can then apply to any problem. I believe that fun is an integral part of learning and try to incorporate it into every lesson.
I have been involved in education for over 25 years. I have taught from 5th through graduate school. I have specialized in teaching children that are low performing or at risk and have great success at having students achieve. Currently, I am a Math/Science specialist for Apple Computers. I have spent 16 years involved with teaching teachers at the Claremont Graduate School of Education. I was Math Science advisor to new teachers. I most enjoy upper elementary and middle school students. I am known for my curriculum development expertise and development of unique teaching methodologies. I have worked on curriculum projects for NASA, JPL, Federal Department of Education, State of California, State of Texas and numerous school districts across the nation. I have an extensive content background in areas of biology life sciences,chemistry and pathology as well as strong background in Mathematics and teaching theory.
In terms of working with students, I am currently working with special ed teachers and students where i am focusing on the use of technology to enhance student engagement as well as student content learning. I can and will provide your student with the skills and knowledge they need to improve in school. Resume available upon request.

Very patient tutor

Excellent tutor. Always motivates my daughter to like biology. Bruce really enjoys helping students. I recommend him. He always gives historical context too.

George, 3 lessons with Bruce

Excellent in AP Biology

Bruce knows exactly what your son/daughter needs! He is very encouraging and knowledgeable. He is not only teaching the separated biology knowledge but also connecting those related key points into a network, or a profile. We are very happy with Bruce's first meeting for AP biology, and keep looking forward to the next tutoring.

Wendy, 1 lesson with Bruce

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Bruce was able to explain the material in a way that my daughter can understand. Hopefully she will nail her next test.

Samantha, 1 lesson with Bruce

Great Tutor

Bruce is an excellent tutor. He has a broad academic background in the sciences and it is evident when you are working with him. He is enthusiastic and passionate about teaching science to his students. He can explain concepts very clearly and is a patient instructor. Bruce arrives at the tutoring sessions on time and is easy to get in contact with. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help in science courses.

Kaj, 2 lessons with Bruce

Excellent tutor with powerful study strategies and super strong Biology, medical-related knowledge

Bruce is a very knowledgeable and organized teacher who not only teaches the AP Biology with the whole views of this difficult subject but also guiding my son with the good study skills and habits to prepare this college level subject for high school student! In this way, it really helps my son to understand the lessons before each class at school. Besides, Bruce also prepares the review materials and extra practices for tests and exams to make sure my son fully understands every lessons. Therefore, my son can be very confident to get the good grades for every test! We are so blessed to have him being my son's tutor in AP Biology and I strongly recommend him!!
