Ph.D. Physicist to teach Math and Science Concepts for Life
Through years of tutoring during my college days, and years of being a coach and mentor during my professional career, I learned that understanding the basic concept is much more important than just knowing how to solve a particular problem. Once you have a grasp of the basic concept and gain the insight, you not only improve your scores and grades, you get to appreciate the beauty of math and science and remember the concepts for life. You become a curious person and a life-long learner. I...

Extraordinary Tutor
Dr. C. is a truly extraordinary tutor. It is rare that someone with his level of expertise is willing to work as a part-time tutor. If you are interested in help in math, chemistry or physics, I can't imagine that there is a better resource in Chicago than Dr. C. Not only does Dr. C. have great subject matter expertise and the capacity to explain his knowledge clearly, but he is also incredibly kind and patient.

Excellent tutor. Makes learning easy.
This was my daughter’s first tutoring lesson and she was a little bit worried that she wouldn’t understand the lesson but as soon as she sat down with Brian she felt very comfortable. Brian is very patient and has an excellent ability to explain things in a way that my daughter understood easily. At the end of the session my daughter was very excited that she could finally solve equations and problems that she had struggled with for some time. She enjoyed the lesson very much and wants to continue with future sessions. We are so glad to have worked with Brian. Highly recommended!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.
Brian was so kind and helpful, we only had one lesson but I learned so much that I didn't even know I didn't know. He was so encouraging when I figured things out and was really clear in how to approach a problem. I'm excited to see how much more I improve after more lessons because I'm already better at physics after just one.

Best tutoring session yet
Dr. C is very knowledgeable about the content and the method of delivering a lesson. He knew almost immediately what my son was lacking. He is able to cover the current topic on hand and review the basics so the concept is understood at a deeper level. Thank you!

Excellent first session; already helping
Subject was college Calculus I. We went through sections of the chapters and Brian explained the concept clearly and understandably. Then we worked on the problems. I solved first and if it were wrong, he asked me how I got there. He knew exactly where I went wrong and explained it. We made a lot of progress in one session. Already scheduled session 2 and looking forward to it. Brian is nice, patient and easy to work with.

I have had a few sessions with Brian regarding GMAT quantitative testing. As of the first visit, he helps to evaluate your ability level and set some reasonable goals to then work towards with his guidance. It's early in the process, but I expect great improvement.

Looking forward to working more with Brian!
After only one one-hour lesson with Brian, I'm already approaching my GMAT studies in a different way. He is knowledgeable about the material and knows how to study effectively to get strong results. I'm also impressed by how he takes on a lower number of students at a time to ensure they get the highest quality lessons and proper attention. I'm really looking forward to working more with Brian!

Unbelievable
The only Physics tutor who got through to my son! The smile on my son's face when he finished with the session was priceless. He said, "Mom, he really made me understand the difficult problems I was conceptualizing.

Great tutor! Raised my score by at least 50 points!
Brian is a great tutor who I would recommend to everyone on Wyzant. He tutored me for the SAT Math 2 Subject Test. When I started studying, I was having trouble with main topics of the test and couldn't figure it out on my own. After meeting with Brian once a week for about 1-1.5 hours for 2 months, I was able to not only learn new things about precalculus, algebra 2, and calculus that I can use in school and college, but also raised my score from around a 700-720 to 780. He is very patient and made sure that I understood each thing we went through every lesson. When I had trouble, we stopped and he helped me understand why the answer was correct, but also changed my thinking perspective on these particular problems. I felt that the whole tutoring process was very personalized and we were going through things that I was having trouble with particularly, rather than going through the major topics on a specific tests like most tutoring classes or books do. Brian is one of the best tutors I have had, I learned so much, and I would recommend him to everyone I know. Although I am finished with standardized testing and the SAT, I will definitely ask for help with other tests or math problems in the future.
Emily, 8 lessons with BrianTutor responded:Congrats! Emily, for getting such an awesome score. You worked diligently for it and deserve every points of it. I am so happy as your tutor.
Very knowledgeable
Brian was very knowledgeable and good at asking questions. His explanations are sometimes too drawn out. He is interesting in trying to help you learn.
