Great Lesson

Teacher was very knowledgeable in the subject area. He did an excellent job explaining the subject and the concepts. I will definitely recommend him.

REBECA, 9 lessons with Brian

Very helpful

Jakob felt it was very helpful in preparation for his End of Course Spanish 2 exam. Thanks for your flexibility in scheduling. He found the 1:1 time helped him understand the concepts better.

Anne, 6 lessons with Brian

Very Knowledgeable and Enthusiastic

Arrived promptly on time. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject. Really helped my daughter understand the areas she needed help with. Will definitely have more sessions.

Jana, 4 lessons with Brian

Knowledgeable and Reliable

Knowledgeable Spanish tutor who is very reliable. Very helpful in helping expanding verbal communication skills. Always prompt to scheduled lessons. Would recommend Brian.

Barry , 9 lessons with Brian

Very kind

Brian responded to my email right away. He arrived at the tutoring location on time and was ready to get started. He is very kind and explained things well. Specifically they worked on Algebra 1 problems, such as compound interests, linear functions, and growth and decay concepts. My son felt more confident after his first lesson with Brian. Next, Brian helped my son with Spanish I verb conjugations, which was extremely helpful. I highly recommend Brian!

LISA, 1 lesson with Brian

Very patient

He is calm, patient, gets things that need to be done, done. Knows what the student needs to study to be ready for tests.

Donna, 5 lessons with Brian

Very Helpful and Punctual

My son has really improved his Spanish, and he has also learned to more appreciate the language. Mr. Brian is also always punctual and will contact us if something were to happen. In addition, whenever we have a question, he always responds quickly.

James, 14 lessons with Brian

Great All Around

Brian was very great to work with. Was able to be flexible on location. Brought my SAT scores up in all the subject areas that we covered. Very intelligent person who was able to not only tell me what the right answer was, but was also able to inform me of why the other answers were wrong in a way that I could understand. Great all around.
