About Brian

My name is Brian. I’m a professional tutor and chemical engineer located in San Diego, California. I specialize in math, science, and engineering courses at the high school, college, and graduate levels.

I excel at tutoring for courses which are based in problem-solving, and I provide my students with step-by-step solution strategies. During a tutoring session we may work on homework problems, review, exam preparation, lab reports, and whatever else the student needs.

I can help with mathematics courses from basic algebra through multivariate calculus.
I can help with chemistry and physics courses, as well as advanced chemistry and engineering courses.

Qualifications
Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Clarkson University
Eight years experience as a professional engineer and scientist in Boston, MA
Three years experience as a graduate teaching assistant at Tufts University

Rates
For general courses, my rate is $50/hour. This includes courses at the high school, AP, and intro college levels.
For advanced college courses, my rate is $60/hour. This includes courses such as organic chemistry, differential equations, and thermodynamics.
I also have group rates, so team up with a friend and save significantly on your per-student rate. Ask me for details.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I work with ACT Math and Science students regularly, and can help students get better scores.

ACT Science

I work with ACT Math and Science students regularly, and can help students get better scores.

Algebra 1

I am a chemical engineer with 10 years of industry and academic experience, and I have been tutoring math and science students full-time for the past two years.
I can help students with any mathematics topics from basic algebra through advanced college courses.

Calculus

I am a chemical engineer with 10 years of industry and academic experience, and I have been tutoring math and science students full-time for the past two years.

I can help students with Calculus 1 and Calculus 2, in addition to Multivariate (Calculus 3), Differential Equations (Calculus 4), and other math courses.

Chemical Engineering

I completed a BS in Chemical Engineer at Clarkson University. My graduation date was May 2006. My final GPA was a 3.86/4. During that time, I worked as a volunteer tutor first for freshmen calculus, chemistry, and physics courses and later for sophomore and junior level chemical engineering courses.

Chemistry

I can help students with General Chemistry for high school, AP, and college, as well as more advanced chemistry courses such as Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Quantitative Chemistry, and more.

Differential Equations

I completed a BS in Chemical Engineeritf at Clarkson University. My graduation date was May 2006. My final GPA was a 3.86/4. During that time, I worked as a volunteer tutor first for freshmen calculus, chemistry, and physics courses and later for sophomore and junior level chemical engineering courses. As an engineer, I took Differential Equations and used many the techniques I learned in the course throughout later classes and into my professional career.

Discrete Math

Discrete mathematics topics are typically scattered throughout other math courses. Each of my three calculus courses had discrete math sections. I also made use of discrete math skills in higher level engineering courses, especially for chemical reaction modeling.

Econometrics

In chemical engineering undergraduate programs, economic considerations are placed at a higher importance than other engineering disciplines. I took a junior level econometrics course while completing my degree. Because I already had a strong background in statistics, this course was a natural fit for me, and I feel confident in my ability to tutor a student in it.

Linear Algebra

I completed a BS in Chemical Engineer at Clarkson University. My graduation date was May 2006. My final GPA was a 3.86/4. I took Linear Algebra as an intensive summer course and have used much of that knowledge throughout later classes and into my professional career. I am also proficient with Linear Algebra applications in Matlab and MathCAD.

Logic

Logic is the basis of mathematics, and topics on logic were included in most of the mathematics courses I took during high school and my engineering degree. I always enjoyed logic puzzles and proofs, and frequently do them for fun. I understand the formalized proof structure and PQ notation.

Organic Chemistry

I completed a BS in Chemical Engineer at Clarkson University. My graduation date was May 2006. My final GPA was a 3.86/4. During that time, I worked as a volunteer tutor first for freshmen calculus, chemistry, and physics courses and later for sophomore and junior level chemical engineering courses including Organic Chemistry I and II.

Precalculus

I am a chemical engineer with 10 years of industry and academic experience, and I have been tutoring math and science students full-time for the past two years. I can help students with any mathematics topics from basic algebra through advanced college courses.

SAT Math

I work with SAT Math students regularly, and can help students get better scores.

Statistics

I have taken many statistics courses over the years, both as an undergraduate and in grad school. Having worked as a scientist/engineer since 2006, I have had much practice in error analysis and then opportunity to learn other advanced statistical analysis techniques.

Part of my most recent engineering position was communicating testing results to customers along with the many statistical parameters we used in reports. So, I feel I am good at teaching statistics concepts people who are new to them.

Brian was patient and is very knowledgeable .

Brian got right to work with my grandson and seemed to connect immediately. They made a plan to work on the areas Darius needed the most help and where to go from there.
