About Brendan

Hi, my name is Brendan and I am happy to assist you or your children achieve academic success. I am a graduate from the University of Maryland honors college with a degree in chemistry. I am currently working towards my masters in electronic materials engineering, and am looking to tutor full-time as I complete my degree. I have tutored for over 5 years at this time and am currently looking to pick up more students for the summer. As a chemistry major, I developed a very strong background in math and science. I am very capable of tutoring you or your children in any math course up through Calculus BC as well as Chemistry, Physics and Biology.

I also have extensive experience tutoring for the SAT (SuperScore 2290) and the GRE (168 Q, 163 V) and am perfectly capable of tutoring for the GMAT and ACT as well.

I specialize in higher level high school courses and lower level college classes. I performed exceptionally well on AP tests during my high school career (5s on AP Biology, Chemistry, Calculus AB, and 4s on AP Physics and Calculus BC exams), and have further strengthened my background with college courses in these subjects.

My previous tutoring experiences have included private tutoring to several college and high school students. I have always had a very strong professional relationship with my students, and they have always met or exceeded their goals for the course. I am currently leading a small SAT prep study class - helping 5 aspiring college students reach the their goals.

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.

Algebra 1

Brendan has scored in the top 1% of both the SAT and the GRE math sections. He has extensive experience tutoring high school students and they really enjoy working with a young fresh, college graduate. Students find him extremely related, and enjoy his clear, concise explanations.

Organic Chemistry

I am currently a University of Maryland student majoring in chemistry. I have taken both organic chemistry I and II, and received an A in both courses. I have tutored 4 students in this class over the past year and they have all been very satisfied with their success in the course.

Awesome Tutor!

I am planning on taking Organic Chemistry in the fall semester and wanted to get ahead of the curve by studying in advance. Brendan has been extremely helpful in explaining the concepts that will be used in Organic Chemistry. Brendan explains the material in a very simple way that the textbook does not. I completely understand most concepts after our sessions. Additionally, he will write out n
