About Brian

As a lifelong learner, my passion for teaching grows with each of my diverse students. After earning a Master’s degree in English, I have taught for many years as a community college instructor, helping countless students transfer to the college of their dreams. Though it is gratifying to see my students improve their grades and test scores, the real reward comes when they share a renewed love for reading and writing.

If we work together, you will:

learn how to read analytically
write better essays and applications
improve your sentence mechanics and fluency

Beginning with our very first session, we will target your weaknesses and develop a plan for turning them into strengths. My goal for every meeting is for my students to feel engaged and motivated enough to practice on their own. When we meet, I assess your progress and add or modify learning modules as appropriate.

You should contact me if you would like:

better grades
higher test scores
to improve your study habits
to get into the college of your dreams

My availability for tutoring varies by the week but generally falls between 10am and 8pm. My current rate for in-person tutoring is $34 per hour. Online tutoring rates begin at $20 per hour.

I look forward to working with you! Give me a call, and we can get started today!

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.
