MIT PhD & former Dartmouth professor: You can learn math/physics!
Thanks for your interest in working with me! I am excited to help you in your academic journey.
APPROACH:
My experiences as a student and professor have taught me the importance of internalizing key concepts, cultivating an effective problem solving process, and making connections to the real world. I also value fostering a "growth mindset", which celebrates effort and provides mental resilience. These values underpin my tutoring approach: I engage my students with interesting problems,...

Amazing tutor!
Brenden helped me with my graduate level engineering math class covering ODE and PDE. He was extremely helpful and patient. I was super happy to find a tutor who would help with these advanced classes. Brenden is great, highly recommend!

Excellent with reluctant students
Brenden has done a fantastic job tutoring our 11-year-old. Our son developed a number of gaps in his math skill set due to COVID-related remote learning problems in the spring, and Brenden was able to quickly identify those areas that needed help and make a thoughtful gameplan on how to tackle those deficiencies and support his middle school math needs going forward. More importantly, he uses humor and creativity to engage with our son, which is quite unusual in a tutor.

Best MATLAB Tutor -- Code Wizard
Brenden is an amazing MATLAB tutor! One hour with him was more useful than three hours I've spent with other tutors. He showed me how to approach my assignment and structure my solution. His explanations were crystal clear, and the code we wrote worked perfectly.
