About Bruno

*September 2016*

Over the last year, I have had a lot of specific experience with math: college algebra, pre-calculus, trigonometry, and calculus - more so than any other subjects. Spring 2016, 85% of my students improved their class grade two letter grades, and one improved by three: from D to an A. Every student I have tutored for an entire term has at least gotten a solid C in their math course.

I have also been lucky to do a significant amount of writing tutoring and proofreading. In that regard, my students generally improved by one letter grade per each hour of revision for a specific assignment.

My math and writing tutoring skills have gotten me hired as a tutor both for the University of Oregon and the University of Wisconsin-Madison's respective athletic departments.

Hey there!

My name is Bruno and I just finished my Masters in Education and Teaching this June at the University of Oregon, and am certified in Social Studies, French, and ESOL instruction. I graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Government in 2012, and then spent two years as a Regional Director for a textbook company.

And I really, really didn't like it. I've worked with kids since I was 14 at a summer camp, but never realized I wanted to make it my career until I got an opportunity to teach French at the Taft School (Connecticut) in the summer of 2013. I immediately knew that I wanted to make teaching my career, and applied to the UOTeach program!

So that's how I got to Eugene, Oregon. and how I got into tutoring. As my title would suggest, I am available for tutoring or coaching anything from French to Football. I've taught, tutored or coached French, English, SAT/ACT Prep, Algebra, Calculus, Football, and Olympic Weightlifting.

I believe in strengths-based tutoring and coaching, meaning I like to identify a students strong-points before moving on to problem areas. I also focus on building good time management and productivity habits, and help students come up with custom solutions which help them plan and complete their work and assignments with minimal stress. It's important to address a student's individual academic background and habits while addressing their performance in a specific class.

In short, I have a lot of experience in a slew of different subjects, and with students ages 5-college aged.

If you have any questions, or would like to talk to me more, please get in touch!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Calculus

I tutored over 50 students in business calculus 1 and 2 at the University of Oregon.

Football

I played football at Dartmouth College for four years and am currently a volunteer coach at North Eugene High School.

French

AP French Language - 5, AP French Literature - 5, SAT French - 770.

I have been studying French since I was 9, including minoring in French while at Dartmouth. I have also taught French to college, high school and middle school students, and am seeking a teaching endorsement in French in conjunction with my EdM.

I love French language and culture, and am passionate about teaching it! French can be a lot of fun once it becomes a medium for interacting with one of the world's richest cultures and 338 million people worldwide.

Study Skills

Right now I am getting my M.Ed. with endorsements in Social Studies, French and also ESOL. Through each of these subjects, I have learned different strategies for helping students with their metacognition - thinking about how they are thinking.

One of the most important skills I teach is how to decode a reading, i.e. looking for topic sentences, reading the chapter summary first, bold words, etc. I have found that most students are not taught skills like active reading or note taking, and yet are expected to perform them. I think any student can be a good reader with the proper schema in place.

I also have a very good handle on how to write argumentative essays and business essays from my time as a Government major and while working for a textbook company.

Outside of reading and writing, my organizational skills are all self-taught. I started college (and finished) without any consistent to-do list or calendar, and today I use a calendar, to-do list, and journal daily.

Great Tutor

Bruno is an excellent tutor. He is patient and explains the problem and how to solve it instead of just giving the answer to be done with the problem. By doing this it has helped me learn the material better than I thought I could have. Bruno is flexible with scheduling, meeting places, and how often you can meet with him in a week. I would recommend him to any student needing help in any subject.
