Bio

I am a teacher at heart. I spent four and a half years as an adjunct professor, during which time I learned how to motivate and instruct college students with varying degrees of interest and enthusiasm. My tenants for teaching are simple; be engaged, meet the student where they are, and over-communicate that each of us is capable with the right method.

I am a teacher at heart. I spent four and a half years as an adjunct professor, during which time I learned how to motivate and instruct college students with varying degrees of interest and enthusiasm. My tenants for teaching are simple; be engaged, meet the student where they are, and over-communicate that each of us is capable with the right method.

I have learned, through the attainment of a dual degree in Accounting and Finance from Lehigh University that books can be dense and difficult to digest. It was there where I learned how to take words and numbers and create pictures and stories. This, consequently, allowed me to excel in my professional life while continuing to be in charge of more and more “training” in my various corporate roles. In my late 20s I obtained an MBA from Penn State University in Finance and have since gone on to receive a certification in Executive Management from Cornell University. It’s because I continue to learn that I am able and qualified to teach. I am both a coach and a player. I have excelled in math, writing and reading, in particular, while also becoming very strong in test preparation (GMATs, SATs, and GREs). These are skills I’ve learned to communicate to others with relative ease and enjoyment. When you tutor with me, both the journey and the destination prove valuable and enjoyable.

I currently work in finance management for a multi-billion dollar organization, and also own my own small business. It is that kind of versatility that has enabled me to help students learn to write business cases, understand problem solving from mathematics to writing, and put their thoughts down in an organized and concise manner. My work is mathematical in nature (Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus and all varying degrees of Algebra), though the reading and the writing inclinations come from my executive interaction. With me you will learn to write with grace and precision, while adhering to grammatical rule.

My methods are quite primitive; we are all learners and see the world through different lenses. I have discovered that by learning more about my students, I can better understand how they process information and, as a result, communicate that information. I have always been a strong standardized test taker, so in that regard I have taught myself tricks to empower stronger memory and better retention. When you tutor with me it is unique. I take a very different approach to learning than what is conventional. This is about how you see the world and understand your experience of it. My passion comes from seeing the development of others. So, it is watching others learn and grow that ultimately make me good at what I do.

Lastly, I am results driven. So, when you invest in me to invest in your child, you will always see a positive return. It’s how I measure myself, and how I understand success.

I will meet you where you are, and together we will achieve success and prepare for a future filled with opportunity.

Business

I am the owner of a small business in Harrisburg, Pa. Since taking ownership in mid-2013, I took 10 years of negative cash flow and turned a profit for the first time in 2015. I have also worked for 3 of the largest financial and retail firms in the US (and some, globally). I consult for small businesses and love to continue furthering my own education while grooming and developing employees. I also currently work for the largest retail grocer on the east coast and handle $3b of their current P&L.

Career Development

I spent 4 years as an adjunct professor teaching finance classes, including investment finance and corporate finance. I have a management certification from Cornell University, an MBA in Finance from PSU, and a dual degree in finance and accounting from Lehigh University. I have tutored several students in high school in the local community at the request of teachers to discuss business and marketing as I am a local small business owner. I have a very unique approach to teaching and a very successful track record in communicating complex topics to a myriad of different educational levels and skill sets.

Marketing

I have owned a small business for the last 3.5 years and during that time have taken the role as owner and CEO. In small business, you must spend time negotiating, selling, and analyzing your market. Part of success in business is realizing that "marketing" is not a static concept, and is often evolved through constant research into social media, business networking, and so on. I have evolved the way this once "turn-key" business reaches its target audience and continues to develop its brand.

I use the MS Office Suite so often in my day-to-day activities in management and presenting critical information to executives, that I have become proficient in most of what the suite has to offer, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint. I continue to enhance my skills beyond what most even know these programs have to offer. I enjoy teaching them to help others further develop their abilities to communicate with technology.

I have been writing at the collegiate level and beyond for more than 20 years. I was placed in AP English and writing in my junior year of High School, and was offered a paid summer of study immediately after my freshman year at Lehigh University to pursue Creative Writing. I spent many of those semesters teaching others to write, and have since written many short stories and am in the midst of a novel co-authored by a PhD in Counseling. Writing, for me, is an art with specks of science sprinkled in.

Writing

I have taught several classes as an adjunct professor, which involved research papers on everything from investment finance to macro and micro economics. This required students to analyze the world's climate in business and international policy and often created a need to help them distill their findings and write them in a concise manner. I also started (finishing about half my Master's degree) in English at the University of Delaware. I also have written several business articles and short stories and am currently in the midst of a novel.

Knowledgeable and understanding tutor

Our first meeting with Brandon was so professional and he knew exactly how to work with our daughter just meeting her for the first time! I was very impressed with his knowledge and the way that he approached teaching kids in a different manners which every kid doesn't learn in the same way. My daughter is so excited to get started.

Knowledgeable and patient

Brandon takes the time to understand my son while he is tutoring him. This is an excellent quality in a tutor because not only is my son learning what Brandon is teaching but he is also developing for future situations and how to deal with them in a productive manner. I highly recommend Brandon as a tutor because I have seen the progress my son has been making not only in his education but also in his confidence level.

Pierce, 3 lessons with Brandon

Great teacher! Very easy to work with!

Brandon was very helpful. He assessed my skill and taught at a speed that made everything easily understandable. He made sure I knew I was comfortable with what he taught me before moving on. He gave quick and easy ways to simplify problems.
