Bio

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.

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.**

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.

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.

Patient and motivating tutor

Bruno helped me establish a strong starting point in studying for the GRE quantitative section. I feel better prepared knowing where I should begin, and the skills involved in achieving a competive score. I enjoyed his approach to tutoring, including a step by step explanation of equations and concepts.

Great tutor

My son was really struggling with his business calculus class at Madison. We didn't have a lot of time before his final exam. We scheduled a few sessions and my son commented each time that he learned a ton and was feeling much more confident heading into his exam. We have not received the grade yet, but I know it will be much improved because of the sessions with Bruno. I would highly recommend!

Great tutor...great guy

Bruno has been tutoring my freshman son for about 3 weeks and it's already been one of the best things I could have done for my son. Bruno not only is knowledgeable in the subjects he's helping my son with (college algebra and 2 poli sci courses), but has helped him settle into a good routine, helped him stay organized and introduced excellent study habits. Bruno wants his students to succeed pure and simple. (not just in academics, but in campus life as well.) Per my son, Bruno is very patient with his students and passionate about learning. He's very kind and helpful- and very well versed in the subjects he tutors. He's generous with his time and flexible to a student's needs.

Fabulous tutor!

Bruno has done an excellent job in reviewing algebra skills with our 8th grade son. He has a great personality and extensive knowledge of math concepts. We feel lucky to have connected with him. We highly recommend Bruno.
