Although tutoring does bolster my curriculum vitae used to secure engagements in my primary line of work and provides a secondary source of income, I tutor primarily because it provides a sense of personal fulfillment to share knowledge and be part of the process where students of all ages and abilities achieve, and often even surpass, their goals. As a tutor I believe in only positive teaching methods, tailoring such methods to the needs of individual students and ensuring students have firm grasp of basic concepts which can then be applied to solve the even most complex problems. I strive to be patient, yet effective, and professional, yet friendly and relaxed. I also consider myself to be very flexible with scheduling due to autonomous nature of my primary work.
I cannot express how thankful I am to have worked with Mr. Brian D. this summer for my Operations Management course. Brian was so helpful and without his help, I would not have learned the material or ultimately, passed my class. He made difficult concepts easy to understand and brought valuable insight to our tutor sessions. I was in an accelerated course (3 weeks) and Brian made his schedule flexible to accommodate my needs. I am forever grateful for his guidance and tutoring lessons, I don’t know what I would have done without him! I highly recommend Brian for all areas of Business tutoring— he is very intelligent and always eager to help! I am more than happy to provide additional recommendations on his behalf.Kim, 9 lessons with Brian
He is really great at helping me understand concepts and explains it more personally than my teachers! Definitely worth the one on one time, will be using him again!Maddie, 6 lessons with Brian
Brian is helping my son with his accounting class. Noah has reported that Brian has identified his weak spots in understanding the material and identified a plan to help him be successful in getting a satisfactory grade in the class.Christine, 5 lessons with Brian
First lesson with Brian
I am the parent of the student being tutored by Brian, so I can't speak to the specifics of the session; however, my son said that Brian was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what he had not understood to date and how to move forward to the next session.Sharon, 12 lessons with Brian
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and focused!!
Great job! Although we got started a little later than expected, I was very much enlightened by my session and finally felt I would be able to move forward with my overall task, which prior to my session was extremely daunting. The tutor was patient and focused. Even though I struggled with relaying my issues with learning and using the personal financial software, he was totally able not only to understand my problems, but also provide viable solutions. His help was invaluable and I totally expect to have a few more sessions in the near future! Thanks for providing such a great service!Todd, 2 lessons with Brian
He gets it and is able to explain in a non-threatening, user-friendly way. I'm so happy I have him on my team. This course is brutal. People at my school have dropped this course the same day they start because of the complex information that has to be processed.Jia, 14 lessons with Brian

Great, Patient Teacher
Our small business needed to update the version of QuickBooks we were using, so we hired Brian. He came to us which was very helpful, and worked patiently with our staff to get updated. After he left, my staff told me that was money well spent. We strongly recommend him.Keith, 1 lesson with Brian
Brian is a great tutor. I had no previous experience of any kind in accounting and he helped me learn the material very quickly for my graduate school class. He is patient and goes at my pace and is very knowledgeable. He has really flexible hours and even was able to arrange tutoring sessions on short notice. I highly recommend Brian as a tutor for all ages.Justin, 10 lessons with Brian
Brian is a great tutor. He worked with my son on his college accounting course, which was a difficult course for my son. Brian identified his weaknesses and helped him develop strategies to overcome them, resulting in the desired grade. We've already hired him back for Accounting 2!Bruce, 38 lessons with Brian
