About Bryan

As a recent Kean University graduate of a Finance major and Mathematical Sciences minor, I have developed a strong sense of the mathematics subject. With my 3.8 GPA, I graduated with honors and earned several scholarships and achievements such as Dean's List. I firmly believe in the value of hard work and try to instill that understanding in my students. Today, I continue to challenge myself by pursuing a Master of Quantitative Finance degree at the Rutgers Business School. This program requires a cohesive understanding of advanced mathematics, finance and computer programming.

With over five years of tutoring experience, I am confident in my teaching capabilities and have the patience to help any individual, regardless of their current math ability. I do not mind repeating myself as much as is needed and will only move fast when I know the student is ready or it is requested otherwise. I am fully aware that every person has their own learning curve and so I can easily adapt my teaching style to fit those needs. As a versatile tutor, I can teach different levels of math from algebra to trigonometry to calculus and more. I can also help with exam preparations of math sections such as the GRE, Praxis and ASVAB. Repetition and detail are important during my sessions but I still make sure to maintain a pace that my students are most comfortable with.

I am open-minded to receiving feedback and will uphold a form of professionalism during the tutoring sessions. Although I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I am flexible with rescheduling. However, I do need to emphasize that my preferred tutoring locations be within a public setting such as a local library or a nearby coffee shop. As a last resort, I can still meet at an individual’s home if no other option is available. For commuting reasons, I can only meet at or near two general areas. The first location is in Jersey City, NJ (my hometown). The second location is at Kean University (Union, NJ), which has a campus public library with several quiet study areas ideal for private or group lessons. I am also open to online tutoring if meeting arrangements are inconvenient.

My ultimate goal is to ensure that my students learn to think independently and eventually build enough confidence to manage their educational progress on their own. I look forward to assisting those in need and become a part of their future success!

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.

ACT Math

I have taken the ACT before so I am familiar with the formatting of the test as well as the key topics a student is expected to know for the exam. Thanks to my current tutoring position at Kean University, I have experience helping students with test preparations that have a greater level of difficulty such the GRE and PRAXIS.

Algebra 1

I have over four years of experience at Kean University’s tutoring center, instructing a multitude of courses in mathematics, statistics, economics and finance. Through constant practice as a tutor, I have developed a profound understanding of these subjects to the point of knowing how to explain material to the smallest detail. I have received an A in most of my upper level math courses so tutoring a math class of a lesser degree will not be challenging.

Algebra 2

With a major in Finance and minor in mathematics, I have received an A in most of my upper level math courses. Tutoring a math class such as algebra is easy because of my knowledge and prior employment experience. I have over four years of experience at Kean University’s tutoring center, instructing a multitude of courses in mathematics, statistics, economics and finance. I have a passion to learn in the mathematics field so I am constantly learning more each day in school. As my knowledge increases so does my ability to teach my students the same math material.

Calculus

I have taken the entire sequence of calculus courses at my college and have received an A in each course. It is clear that I have a profound understanding of the material and have no difficulty elaborating on the subject with specific detail. I have over four years of experience tutoring calculus, among other math courses so I have my teaching skills are above average.

Elementary Math

I have over four years of experience at Kean University’s tutoring center, instructing a multitude of courses in mathematics, statistics, economics and finance. Through constant practice as a tutor, I have developed a profound understanding of these subjects to the point of knowing how to explain material to the smallest detail. Tutoring a math class of a lesser degree is not a challenge for me.

GRE

In the recent year, I have spent countless hours studying, attending several practice sessions provided by Kaplan and eventually had taken the GRE. I know what is expected in order to well in this exam and how I can help those who are now in the same position as I was before. I have an extensive background as a math tutor that allows me to conduct my sessions in an effective manner. With over four years of experience, I am familiar with the appropriate techniques needed to help students achieve great results in their educational endeavors.

Linear Algebra

I took the first level of linear algebra in the Fall 2014 semester and performed fairly well by receiving an A in the course. I am continuing to broaden my knowledge on the subject by taking the second level of the course this semester. As of today, I am maintaining an A average in the class. This subject is still fresh in my mind so I have a profound understanding and control of the subject matter. I work as an Academic Instructional Mentor at Kean University's Tutortrac Services.

Praxis

Kean University is an institution known for having an exceptional education degree program. With that in mind, many students enroll at this school to pursue a teaching degree. This makes my job as a college tutor all the more demanding at Kean's tutoring center. These students would come into my job asking for assistance for the PRAXIS, an exam that needs to be taken as a necessary step to pursuing a teaching career. I am highly qualified to help these students due to my high academic standing with a 3.8 GPA and years of experience as a math tutor.

Prealgebra

As a college tutor at Kean University's tutoring center, I know how to effectively interact and communicate with my students. I tutor a wide range of math courses that are more difficult than prealgebra. These include precalculus, calculus, probability and statistics, and linear algebra. Tutoring a class that is not as demanding should be hard for me.

Precalculus

I have several years of teaching experience through many private sessions and through my current work position at a tutoring facility at the Kean University campus. I tutor different levels of math so I am comfortable in my understanding of the precalculus material.

SAT Math

I have firsthand experience in this field because I have taken the SAT. I am familiar with the expectations and structure of the SAT so it is easy for me to help guide my students on what is needed to be successful in the exam. I have a strong background in mathematics because of my undergraduate education and work experience as a college tutor.

Trigonometry

I have a deep understanding of mathematical concepts due to my constant exposure in my mathematics minor. I have taken multiple high level math courses that have helped improve my perception of easier concepts such as trigonometry. With practice from my current tutoring job at Kean University, it becomes a simple task to break down the information in the subject and allow students to thoroughly understand it for themselves.
