About Brian


Bio

I have been tutoring since 2011 and found that I have a passion for it. I truly enjoy helping students achieve better grades and develop a better understanding of the material. I always look for alternate ways to present the material that each student understands. If one way doesn't work, I try another approach. I prefer to make learning the material as easy as I can. Many of my students have told me that they wished I was their math teacher due to making it easier to understand. I see the...

I have been tutoring since 2011 and found that I have a passion for it. I truly enjoy helping students achieve better grades and develop a better understanding of the material. I always look for alternate ways to present the material that each student understands. If one way doesn't work, I try another approach. I prefer to make learning the material as easy as I can. Many of my students have told me that they wished I was their math teacher due to making it easier to understand. I see the material through a student's eyes rather than a teacher's.

I have 3 degrees - two Bachelor's degrees (Business Management and Psychology) and one Master's degree (Psychology). Even though these are not math-related degrees, there was much math involved in attaining them. I was always the student others came to for help, rather than the teacher/professor. I have also been a substitute math teacher at Cranbrook.

I tutor all levels of math through Pre-Calculus. I can do some Calculus, but please ask first. I also tutor early level Accounting, as well as the math portion of the ACT.

I am very flexible with my hours and will work with you in finding the best time depending on my schedule and I am available to tutor all week long. I will travel to you, wherever is most convenient and comfortable for you. If you are not happy with my services or I feel that I was ineffective, I do not charge for that time.

I look forward to working with you and achieving the grades you desire!

Knowledgeable - highly recommended

Brian is very knowledgeable and patient. He was very helpful with my son’s math problems and had a good way of explaining them. I would highly recommend Brian and looking forward to next lesson.

Sebastian, 3 lessons with Brian

Excellent!!

Brian taught in a way my daughter could understand. She felt that she actually understood what he was explaining, and that made her feel more confident. She is looking forward to her next tutoring session instead of usually dreading them. Thank you, Brian!!

Middle school Geometry

Brian even on the first day did a great job gaining rapport and getting an idea about where some of the gaps were. He did a nice job helping my son with some basic concepts that my son was unsure of. He was definitely more confident. Looking forward to more instruction.

Friendly and encouraging tutor

Brian worked with my son on his Algebra 2 homework. When he left, my son felt as though he really understood the information for the first time. He felt comfortable with Brian and we will have him back for further tutoring!

Brian has been working with my freshman son in geometry for about two weeks. He seems to be patient and knowledgeable and our son is comfortable working with him. We are pleased his math grade is improving.
