About Bruno

Hey there!

My name is Bruno and I finished my Masters in Education June 2016 at the University of Oregon, and am certified to teach Social Studies, French, and ESOL instruction. I graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Government in 2012, and spent two years working in the textbook industry before I decided to pursue a career in education. I spent one year after finishing my Master's as an educational consultant matching top-level tutors with students, before securing a job teaching English and Social Studies at a prestigious K-12 co-ed private school here in New Orleans.

So, how can I help you? While I am not a math teacher, I financed my M.Ed. by tutoring math (pre-algebra through multivariate calculus) and writing. I tutored both private students and student-athletes at the University of Oregon, where I developed a niche as an executive skills coach and writing/math tutor. In math and in writing, each of my students improved by at least two grade divisions, i.e. from a C+ to B, or B to A-. I particularly love to tutor calculus because many of my students seem to dread and hate the subject, and it's extremely rewarding to help a student enjoy material they once feared.

**Recently, I have tutored multiple students in Tulane's calculus courses, and I understand the pacing and content of each course.**

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.
