##### About Brian

Originally a teacher form Ireland, I moved to Charlotte 4 years ago, teaching 4/5 th grade with a CMS Title 1 school. During that time I have also tutored students of all levels and grades. My first year in CMS my Math scores were in the top 5 of Mecklenburg County, and have continued to have 80% plus achievement rates in scores on the Measures of Academic Progress exams.

I try to make Math relevant to the student's lives, break down problems, especially word problems and teach a process of working out such problems, so that students can apply this process to any other word problems they face.

I have become the Math lead in my grade for the past two years. I am responsible for creating lesson plans and resources to ensure Math lessons are aligned to the common core. I have tutored students in 3/4/7 and 12th grade In all areas of Math. I also have a degree in Information Technology, where I studied college level Math. I have also studied Applied Math in high school.

I have 4 years' experience teaching with CMS where all lessons are aligned to the common core. I have also been involved in meetings with CMS teachers to create Math exams aligning to the common core.

I have a Masters in Elementary education, received form an outstanding college in Ireland.

I treat every student the same, that every student has the potential to become Math scholars, I provide techniques and processes to allow each student to "work out" any Math problem. I am a big believer in teaching a strategy of problem solving rather than just showing the solution.
