About Brett

I have tutored as a hobby and volunteer since early in high school, and simply loving helping kids succeed in school. As a student with ADD/ADHD, growing up in a traditional school environment was often a challenge. However, I was fortunate enough to have a great support system in the form of teachers and private tutors, who taught me the organizational skills I needed to succeed in public school. These lessons have stayed with me, and turned me into a student and professional who excels and is always up to the multi-tasking challenge. My specialty is in distilling technical information to a non-technical crowd using my background in analytics with my natural tendency to interact and communicate.

I graduated from Penn State University as a Dean's List student with a B.S. from the College of Agriculture in Community, Environment and Development, a B.A. from the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences in Geography, with minors in Geographical Information Systems, Spanish, and International Relations. I received my Master's Degree, with honors, from the Pratt Institute in City and Regional Planning - where my Master's thesis focused on educating elementary school children on ecological systems and play via interactive art assignments to formulate the basis for a new community center playground and evaluate children's inclinations towards healthy, outdoor play and sustainable choices.

I find great satisfaction in helping others succeed and building relationships.

My tutoring style works best with in-person tutoring sessions. I find that children and adolescents will succeed the most with face-to-face one on one time. My style is extremely engaging and puts (oftentimes) dry material into real-life situations to encourage outside of the box thinking and solutions that meet your child's learning style best.

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.
