Sometimes you need the best. Sometimes you want the best. I enjoy helping others succeed. I have been tutoring and teaching mathematics privately for over 10 years with a highly successful track record.

I understand the patience and adaptability that are essential to a student's progression and understanding of mathematics and its related problems. I also understand that different students require different paces and various methods of teaching. I strive to adapt to each individual student's needs and learning style.

Mathematics has always made sense to me and I do my best to provide the same level of intuition and confidence to my students. I encourage you to read my reviews from other students and parents!

Study Skills

Study Skills

I currently work with two students who both have ADHD. I myself have ADHD and therefore understand the personal importance of study skills. I teach my students that it is equally important to relax and reward yourself with some free time after doing some homework or working on a big assignment. Organization is key, and even more specifically SETTING DEADLINES. If a student is not exactly sure when something is due, he or she will feel less strongly about where they exactly stand. And even more importantly, knowing deadlines and creating your own daily schedule makes life that much easier. The two students that I currently work with are a sophomore in high school and a repeat second grader. Both require study skill habits in their own unique way, and I manage to cater to their specific needs quite well. I am able to set deadlines for my students and then after a while, they can really see how straightforward and simple organization of one's time can be. Working with the TV off and avoiding any unnecessary distractions is just as important when talking about study skills. The environment one works in is critical to one's success. Pythagorean didn't have MTV or an iPhone to distract him from developing his famous right triangle theorem!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the "bread & butter" of all high school math. In order for a student to be successful in future math courses, he or she needs to be strong in algebra. I excelled in algebra when I was a student. I can certainly help others grasp the subject and gain the knowledge of the fundamental topics within the subject.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is an extension of Algebra 1, and sometimes I find myself covering the topics of Algebra 1 or Pre-Algebra with some students--this is okay, but more importantly, it is necessary!
Calculus,

Calculus

I have a high aptitude for calculus and explaining the concepts to students. I currently teach AP Calculus AB at Booker High School in Sarasota. It is my favorite subject to teach and I look forward to it every period. Related math courses for which I have passed with a 3.0 or higher include: * Precalculus/Trigonometry * Calc with Analytic Geometry I * Calc with Analytic Geometry II * Calc with Analytic Geometry III * Differential Equations

I passed Precalculus with an A in both high school and in college. I also taught this subject as a math teacher in public high school. I have logged hundreds of hours of teaching and tutoring precalculus topics.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

The SAT is a BIG deal. And I can clearly express and have you or your child understand the material and mathematical concepts behind the problems. It is important that your son or daughter know how to set up problems with the ability to express word problems into expressions and equations--and I can do this! I want your son or daughter to get the best score possible so they can have better potential to get into the school they want a little more easily.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

Trigonometry makes up the significant portion of "pre-calculus" courses. I have been able to make trigonometry much easier to understand and comprehend for many students over the years. Some teachers or professors do not focus on certain fundamentals of trigonometry, thus making it more difficult to fully grasp the material and even more importantly, how to efficiently obtain solutions to problems. I make sure to go over these fundamentals each and every time I sit down with a student for the first time, especially because these fundamentals are referred to over and over again throughout the course.

Very knowledgeable and helpful!

Brandon helped my son understand and prepare for a test in his precalc class. It was very helpful. He answered many questions and worked many examples. Thank you.

Mike, 1 lesson with Brandon

Knowledgeable, kind and interested

Brandon helped with Geometry, Algebra, organization and approach. He was patient, thorough, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and thorough. Just what my son needed. Thank you!

Jessica, 2 lessons with Brandon

A very gifted math tutor whose great at communicating and explaining math concepts

Brandon is an awesome tutor! He is so professional, organized and efficient. He really takes time to explain concepts so the student has clarity. He is nice and very patient and even shares tips which makes math easier to comprehend. He is by far one of the best tutors on Wyzant. Thank you Brandon for all your help!!

Rose, 1 lesson with Brandon

Excellent and patient instructor

My 9th grade son was devastated when he couldn't grasp the concepts in his Algebra 1 class. Despite getting tutoring at school, he was still hitting a roadblock as the school tutoring sessions had upwards of 30 kids. October 28th we did our first session as he wanted prep for his upcoming test the 1st week of November. We've had four sessions before the test. Two tests prior scored at 29/50, 24/50... Needless to say, we were quite elated when my son came home and announced he got 45/50, which is a 90%! We highly recommend Brandon for his patience and simplicity in explaining concepts. We will continue year round with Brandon. We highly recommend him.

Impressed with Brandon

Brandon handled our initial meeting professionally and logically by making an assessment and covering core expectations for success. We found this experience much better than our previous tutor. Thank you Brandon

Carlos, 19 lessons with Brandon

Three thumbs up for this tutor - very professional, yet kind

We are very impressed with Brandon. He has mastered the subjects he teaches and makes it a point to "tune in" to precisely where our student goes awry. He is knowledgeable, kind, yet very professional. As a result, our grandson is mastering his issues and his grades are souring. Three thumbs up for this tutor.

Logan, 20 lessons with Brandon

Punctual and got right to work!

With Brandon's help, my daughter was able to clear up her math questions. Brandon arrived on time and immediately started working with her. At the end of the tutoring session, my daughter had a better understanding of the math problems she was having trouble with.

Maria, 1 lesson with Brandon

Very Helpful!

My daughter was having trouble following the fast pace of her classroom instructor. Brandon was able to break down the work into parts she could follow and comprehend. She is feeling a lot more confident going forward in her math class. Thanks so much.

Money well spent - great tutor

I was very impressed with Mr. G. He is very informative and presented well. I told him my expectations as a parent and he made sure they were met. Thanks again - we can't wait until our next visit.
