About Brad

“What a child can do in cooperation today he can do alone tomorrow” (Vygotsky). I try to provide students with material understanding and foster critical reasoning so they might become more conscious, independent thinkers. Bringing knowledge and a considerable capacity to connect with students, I am seeking the opportunity to provide excellent instruction and motivation to inquiring minds toward the improvement of the community.

I have a B.A. and M.A. in English literature. I've taught high school math and English for 6 plus years - I've also had extensive tutoring experience, from 10 year olds to adults for the GRE. I pride myself on my flexibility in teaching concepts and my receptivity to different ideas. I would love to teach you and learn from you as well.

Thanks for the view!

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.

Algebra 1

I've taught 6+ years of every high school math class in the curriculum from Algebra to AP Calculus. I'm a dedicated professional and can teach any given topic from multiple angles which allows me to tailor my lessons to the unique thinking styles and strengths of my students.

Algebra 2

I've taught Algebra 2 in High School for 6+ years.

Calculus

I have taught AP Calculus AB in high school for 6 years and have tutored a number of students on the subject. I have instructed students to scores of 5 on their tests and I look forward to helping you do the same.

Differential Equations

I've taken differential Calculus and vector Calculus in college. I've taught high school math for 6 plus years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught Pre-Algebra to 6th graders and have received Master's level education in English literature. I have taught primarily high school math and English, but would be able to help students at any age group.

English

I have a B.A. and M.A. in English literature. I have also taught film and literature classes in High School.

ESL/ESOL

I have a B.A. and M.A. in English literature. I've taught English classes at the High School level. I taught at a boarding school in Pasadena, CA (Southwestern Academy) specializing in ESL programs. I'd like to be certified in ESL.

Geometry

I've taught Geometry for 6+ years and I'm flexible in my approach. I do my best to honor the unique critical thinking styles and strengths of my students while promoting their own ability to think and problem solve.

GRE

I have taken the standard GRE and subject GRE before. I scored a 620 on verbal, 780 on quantitative, and 5.5 on analytical writing (all 87th percentile which confirms the greater challenge of the verbal section); my literature score was 610). I have a M.A. in English literature and have taught extensive math at the High School level (all the Algebras, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus). GRE math is something I have tutored a student on in the fall of 2011. She did spectacularly.

Precalculus

I have taught every math class in the high school curriculum (all Algebras, Geometry, Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus) for 6+ years. I pride myself on my ability to consider problems from multiple perspectives and thus have different explanations for any given question. I think this lends itself to appealing to various problem solving and critical thinking styles.

SAT Math

I scored over 2000 on SAT. I have tutored students to 790 math scores. I have a Master's degree in English literature. I can teach both math and English, having taught high school math for 6 years and English literature and film to high schoolers.

TOEFL

I have a B.A. and M.A. in English literature. I've studied linguistics in graduate school. I've also taught HIgh School English classes.

Trigonometry

I've taught Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus at the high school level for 6 years and have tutored students in the subject for as many.

I can teach trig concepts from many different perspectives and (pardon the math pun) angles, so that the student can grasp the ideas more deeply.
