About Brian

Hello!

I grew up in the Middle East and was educated at an International School in the I.B. Curriculum. Upon returning to the United States I received a degree in Political Science from UNC at Chapel Hill.

I have prior experience tutoring students with special needs, ESL students, and students preparing for the SAT, Mathematics (of all levels), and Reading/English.

In general, I favor an engaging approach to teaching, but my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

Great, Well Worth It

My son is feeling more confident and he knows the formulas and the correct way of doing the math problems. He also likes doing the math now as he understands why he is doing certain problems. Great tutor, great job.
