About Brian

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!

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.

Business

I have a degree in Business Management and understand how businesses run. I have held management positions in various retail environments over the years, performing all tasks necessary to run a business and keeping customers happy. I can share my experiences and explain concepts that may be confusing. I have also helped college students in the past with business-related courses.

Brian has been great!

My son was struggling in Honors Trig last semester, until we engaged Brian's services. He was able to explain concepts in a way that made it easy for my son to understand. I highly recommend Brian. He is a great teacher, easy to work with, flexible, and punctual for the sessions. I can't say enough good things about Brian!
