About Brian


Bio

Since 2012, I have been helping students on Wyzant improve their grades and prepare for tests, and I would love to help you. I was a student tutor and achieved high marks at all levels of school. I did very well on both my ACT and SAT, and I received AP credit in both English and History. I received multiple scholarships to Xavier University and The University of Mount St. Joseph.

Since 2012, I have been helping students on Wyzant improve their grades and prepare for tests, and I would love to help you. I was a student tutor and achieved high marks at all levels of school. I did very well on both my ACT and SAT, and I received AP credit in both English and History. I received multiple scholarships to Xavier University and The University of Mount St. Joseph.

I can help you or your child with American/World History, English, Writing, and Social Studies. I am also well-versed in preparing students for multiple tests, including the ACT, SAT, SSAT, GRE, PRAXIS, CSET, GAMSAT, FTCE, and AP English/US History/World History. My specialty is multiple choice strategy techniques. I also share my insights from my time as a test grader with students who are taking standardized exams.

However, having knowledge is only part of the puzzle. During my long prior career as a caseworker, I learned to listen, empathize, and help people of all ages. I use humor and planning to ease the anxiety associated with academics.

I prefer to tutor online, as that allows me to work alongside students on papers and projects in real-time. Online tutoring allows me to work with students all over the world quickly and easily. If you need help, contact me with questions and I'd be glad to discuss a personal tutoring plan with you.

Knowledgeable and friendly tutor

Brian patiently went through my scripts with me and gave me a few useful tips in enhancing my answers. I am grateful to have him as my tutor. I'm looking forward to our future lessons!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I was taught how to recognize the main ideas in a paragraph and how to quickly get through the exam. We also reviewed the diagnostic packet to highlight the ones that were incorrect. Overall Brian is knowledgeable and I know that with his guidance I will be able to do well on the SAT exam.

Really great tutor

Brian has been a huge asset to me while I study and prepare for my Praxis. He is very patient and knowledgeable and goes above and beyond! I would definitely recommend him to anyone facing a test with anxiety because of how he encourages and helps with the prep! I am so glad I chose him!

Lydia, 3 lessons with Brian

patient and helpful

He was extremely helpful even though it was just our first lesson. He tutored me for nearly two hours and charged me just for one. I will definitely recommend using him for APUSH.

Tutor responded:

Thank you, Ariella! Good luck and please let me know if you need help in the future.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Brian has been helping my son improve his US History SAT Subject Test score. He is personable, knowledgeable and patient. He provides sensible strategies, sound advice and is a good communicator. We are very grateful also for his willingness to fit in with my son's busy schedule. My son now feels much more confident in his ability to do well. We would highly recommend Brian.

Thank you very much! Hagen has been a pleasure to work with over the last several months. He brings an earnest commitment to his studies that will serve him well in his future endeavors. I'm glad to have helped him.

Great tutor

Brian is an excellent tutor! My daughter has been more confident after taking a few lessons with him. He is patient and very engaging. I highly recommend Brian.

Anna, 4 lessons with Brian
Tutor responded:

Thank you very much, Anna, for the kind words! I enjoyed working with Carolyne and I'm glad I helped her with her AP class.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

Brian is the best tutor and one of the nicest persons that I have ever encountered. Both my daughter (10th grade) and my son (6th grade) have been having weekly lessons with him for the last 4 months. As my daughter needs tutoring in other subjects, we finally have to create another account just for my son because we do not want to miss out on Brian’s availability. Brian truly cares about the children and their learning experience. He is generous with his time and exercises great patience to ensure that they fully understand the materials. His caring and kind demeanor motivates my children to want to do well. He works diligently with me and my children to determine their strengths and weaknesses, and strives to fill in the gaps so that the lessons are effective in addressing their needs. Brian is also super intelligent and extremely well-versed in AP World History and Writing. I have not expected to find a tutor of Brian’s caliber online. He is truly awesome! I feel truly blessed to have found him and will be using him for the years to come.

Thanks so very much, Pat! I really appreciate the time it took to write this and I'm glad I could help. I enjoy tutoring and feedback like this makes it more rewarding.

Great tutor!

Brian thoroughly covered all topics and clearly explained everything. I am preparing for the praxis, and Brian not only covered subject material, but also gave pointers on how to answer questions on the test. Afterward Brian emailed me additional information for studying. I would definitely recommend Brian as a tutor.
