About Brian

Dear students,

I am a dedicated, effective professional to the art and science of teaching. I am interested in taking on students with a variety of academic needs and abilities, and I have never met a student that I felt I couldn't have an impact on. Providing my students with the best possible learning materials and utilizing the best strategies to reach each individual learner's potential is my passion and my promise!

My education consists of two BAs (Spanish & English) from Penn State University. I earned an M.Ed. at Bloomsburg University and an MA in Spanish from Millersville University.

In terms of my experience, the majority of my teaching has been in the classroom setting. I taught English as a Second Language in elementary, middle, and high schools for four years in PA. I have three years experience as a Spanish teacher in MD and PA. However, I have tutored students privately in the past from high school through grad school. I hold professional certificates in English, ESL, Math, and Spanish instruction.

Good luck in your learning pursuits. Your education is your most valuable asset, and a good teacher can help you achieve this.

All my best,

Mr.Q

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.
