Knowledgeable and Patient Math and Science Tutor/CalTech Grad
I have tutored math, science and writing for 15+ years. I enjoy it so much because it gives me a chance to connect with people and explore deeper ideas and understandings of the universe. Having lived a lot of my life in nature, my tutoring methods are not that different from the methods I use to get close to other animals or plants when need be - patience, focus, honesty (both intellectual and emotional), simple explanations, and encouragement when appropriate.

Math genius!
I am so very grateful to have Bruce J. give me tutorials! I was out of school for about 15 years and have forgotten some stuff. I could have not made it without his guidance and instructions through the Statistics course I am taking in my last semester. Bruce not only is a Math genius knowing the subject but he is also creating a conducive environment, calm ambiance and lots of patience without the intimidation and the "Math fear" I have felt at the beginning of this course. I cannot thank him enough!

Great tutor
Bruce taught me how to handle some of my math related anxiety, which was great. He also helped me understand the "why" behind a lot of the problems I was having which is an important aspect for me if I'm going to have a full grasp of the material. He was also very patient and never condescending as I worked through a fee of the problems at my own pace and asked questions as I needed.

Bruce promptly responded to an email sent out for help with a statistics class. I am enrolled in an online program where semesters are only eight weeks long. The classes move fast and furious. He was available for a tutoring session within 48 hours of making initial contact with me. Bruce was obviously very knowledgeable about statistics and math overall. Bruce was able to explain concepts, formulas, and even showed me how to use my new TI-84 plus calculator. Bruce is professional, timely, and trustworthy.

Awesome work!
Bruce was a joy to work with. He took the time to explain difficult concepts and demonstrated both patience and empathy in breaking topics down to a more simplistic level. His ability to help out in areas that didn't necessarily pertain to his specialty really helped me considerably! I highly recommend Bruce to work with - you won't be disappointed.
