In just one visit, Art made a positive impact in my 10th grade daughter's ability to truly understand the mathematical and chemistry concepts she had struggled with all year. He's the type of educator that is extremely patient and teaches things step-by-step in a way most anyone can understand and grasp. He was easy to reach by phone and prompt for the lesson. You won't go wrong with Art B.

We can't say enough about Art and his expertise in tutoring our son in high school Honors Chemistry. He is prepared, patient, extremely knowledgeable and explains this difficult subject in a way that my son can understand. Art has also taken the time to work with my son's teacher to ensure that he is helping in the most effective way. We are thankful to have found Art and highly recommend him for tutoring.

Art is extremely knowledgeable in the subject and quite personable. He is engaged with the pupil, nurturing and encouraging. Goes beyond the lesson to give insights into upcoming topics and coaches the student to be confident in their school work. We would highly recommend him.

My son was preparing for the ACT and decided he needed help with the math section because he was having a difficult time completing the math. I contacted Art and he met with my son once before the test. Art gave my son some things to work on before the exam and helped him focus on some key areas. After working with Art my son's speed in the math section improved and he went into the exam with more confidence. My son felt he did well on the ACT including the math, but said he will want to take the test again and spend more time working with Art because he felt he could improve in that section.

Art has been so helpful in helping my son understand AP chemistry. He is very knowledgeable and can communicate in a way that he understands. Art always returns my calls immediately and is very accessible when we need him. We are lucky to have found him.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Algebra is the study of mathematical statements utilizing letters and symbols to describe relationships. Both Algebra I and II provide the foundation for higher level mathematics. As a result, it is very important that students comprehend the basic principles. Key focus areas for Algebra I include: equations and inequalities, functions, system of equations and inequalities, quadratic functions and equations, exponents and polynomials, probability, rational functions and equations as well as exponentials and radical functions. For over 20 years, I have worked with students in Algebra I and understand the areas which students will find difficult.
