About Brian

I have endorsements in music , socials studies and language arts, but I am knowledgeable in some math and science as well. I've been a teacher in CPS for more than 20 years, mostly music, but I've taught and tutored in many subjects. I believe everyone is capable of understanding with patience and if it is explained in the right way. I find it rewarding when I am able to help students comprehend ideas and concepts that they didn't understand before.

I live in the West Rogers Park area with my wife and 2 kids, and a dog. I play guitar, bass, and mandolin, and I play in a local rock band. I like reading history and fiction as well. I have an undergraduate degree in political science, and a Masters Degree in Education. I look forward to working with you and helping you learn.

I have taught English in elementary schools. I have a good understanding of grammar,comprehension, and putting together a writing assignment. I can help you to organize your thinking in a coherent way so you can write a good informative or persuasive essay.

I majored in political science, and have read a lot of history independently. I am knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject. It is highly interesting to me so I think I can make it interesting for you.

I've also taught music for many years including, guitar, piano, and ukulele. I look forward to working with you. I hope I can be helpful.
