Bio

Hello! Thank you for thinking about me as a possible online tutor.

I can also help with similar tests from other states (CSET, FTCE, MEGA, etc.). In addition, I have helped students pass Praxis Core reading and writing exams.

Hello! Thank you for thinking about me as a possible online tutor.

I can also help with similar tests from other states (CSET, FTCE, MEGA, etc.). In addition, I have helped students pass Praxis Core reading and writing exams. Please see my reviews for examples of satisfied students.

Since 2012, I have been helping students on Wyzant's platform improve their grades and prepare for tests. I can teach poor test takers how to employ winning multiple choice strategies. I have many resources I share with students, including pdf review files, videos, and PowerPoints. I also share my insights from my time as a test grader with students who are taking standardized exams. I heavily employ humor in my teaching style.

I was a student tutor in both high school and college, and I 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 graduated from the latter with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Socio-Psychology.

If you need help with a Praxis II History exam, a Praxis test in Social Studies, or the Reading/Writing portion of the Praxis Core, contact me with questions and I will discuss a personal tutoring plan with you!

Amazing and helpful tutor!

I got in touch with Brian to help me with my Praxis 5081 exam that I was going to take in a few weeks. Right off the bat he was beyond helpful! He asked me what I needed help with and provided so many resources that could help me. His knowledge in History is remarkable and was able to explain anything that I had an issue with. He was really patient, gave great advice on question strategy and also made the tutoring session interesting. I definitely felt a lot more confident with passing the exam after my sessions with Brian. I 100% recommend him as a tutor!

The Best Tutor! If I Could Give 10 Stars I Would!!!

Brian helped me with my Texes 291 Exam, EC-6 Social Studies section. I had failed this section twice before, so I went ahead and reached out to Brian to ask for help. He was extremely helpful to me for an area I struggle so much in. He sent me practice questions that I worked through, and we would go over them in our sessions and look at more questions that related to those I would find on my exam. Brian guided me so much and was such a huge help to me!!! You can't find a better tutor than Brian! Not only did we work through practice questions, but he also walks you through how to narrow down the question, focus on key wording, and find the right answer. I could not have passed my exam without Brian's aid!!!!

5 Stars and worth your time!

Brian was such a wonderful tutor. He is a tremendous tutor and always positive and is very flexible with scheduling. I couldn't have passed my Praxis reading and writing exams without Brian! He has helped me go back from the basics and gain the concepts with full explanations and showing reasons behind the answers. He always shares different tricks and ways to approach a problem and what to look for when solving. Without the knowledge of Brian, I would be unable to pass the Praxis exam. Even after meeting up Brian sent me many examples of different practice tests, videos reviewing problems, and other valuable resources even during on the weekends. We go over the problems that Brian sent out to the next lesson and each lesson Brian will help you gain the full concept of questions. Brian is very patient and will help you no matter what and is never frustrated. I recommended him to one of my friends because of how successful he is.

Outstanding- Won't find someone like him.

Brian was such a wonderful tutor. I couldn't have passed my 5004 praxis without Brian! He was super knowledgeable of all the information and provided many different examples of questions that may be on the test. He provided different ways to look at problems and how to understand what they were asking. I felt much more confident each time I met with him. He sent me many examples of different practice tests, videos reviewing problems, and other valuable resources. Each session was different and he took his time to ensure I understood all of the information that was provided.

Thanks for the thoughtful review, Miranda! I'm very happy for you! Take care and good luck! - Brian

Great tutor

I had only met with Brian for 3 sessions, and he helped me pass my Praxis Core Writing exam. He provided great materials and feedback to help me prepare and study. I had taken the exam twice before meeting with Brian and he gave me great insight and tools to go about taking the exam from a different perspective. I would definitely use him again for future use.

Thanks, Addison! I'm glad you were able to pass your test after meeting me only a few times! I wish you luck!!! - Brian

Knowledgable and patient tutor!

Brian was a great and patient tutor! I have taken the FTCE General knowledge Exam three times and did not pass. Just when I was about to give up, I reached out to Brian for tutoring. Brian helped me study for the reading and language arts subtest of the General Knowledge Exam and after only a few sessions I was able to pass both sections! Thank you, Brian!
