Great tutor!

Brett had a lot of patience and really helped Kelly feel more confident about conics! Hoping that she will continue to be able to apply what she is learning on her tests!

Sue, 11 lessons with Brett

Great teacher

Brett helped me with BC Calculus and was very knowledgeable. He helped me understand the concepts I was having trouble with for my upcoming test.

Allison, 1 lesson with Brett

Great Tutor!

Brett was really good at helping me prep for a test and play a little bit of catch up on some Calc 1 sections I was having a hard time understanding. I will be contacting him again in the future for additional tutoring.

Stephanie, 1 lesson with Brett

My son loved Brett and enjoyed his lesson!

Through the words of my 13 year old son: "He was great. The 90 minutes went by so quickly. He was fun and I enjoyed my lesson. It really helped and I'm excited for the next time that he comes." My thoughts: "What?! You enjoyed math and it was fun?" THANK YOU BRETT!!

Brett is a great tutor. I slay tests!

I really enjoy working with Brett. He is easy to talk to and understand. He helps me focus on the right things for test taking.

Kevin, 4 lessons with Brett

Courteous and easy to work with.

Brett has been a great help for my kid. He was able to break the concepts down and explain it with ease. I would highly recommend Brett.

Sandeep, 5 lessons with Brett

Knowledgeable and kind.

My son really enjoyed his first session with Brett. He was very knowledgeable and gave me great feedback on my son's ability, strengths and weaknesses. He will definitely be a great asset to my son this year. We have continued to seek Brett for my son's tutoring needs for honors geometry and his grade reflects what a great asset Brett is.

Professional, timely & flexible with scheduling

Brett just started tutoring my son and appeared to have established a good rapport with him as he welcomed questions, and made sure he understood the topic at hand.

Fabulous Tutor!

For about the last month we have been seeing Brett for math help and things are going great! Brett has the patience of a saint and was willing to work with us on location as well! Brett has done a fabulous job helping to both teach my son and build his confidence in this subject, from the ground up. Our family is so happy to have found Brett and will continue to work with him throughout the year and maybe more to come. In our family we have found that math is not like it was when we as parents were young, and so sometimes we struggle to help, but Brett gets it and has such a passion for teaching and empowering students to WANT to learn. My son comes home excited after his sessions with Brett and even more proud when he can show off a good grade on a paper. Homework is no longer a struggle, but instead my son see's it as an exciting challenge! As a mom I am no longer dreading homework time and you have no idea what that means to me! Thanks again Brett.
