"Unique approach and worth every penny!"
Heather, 1 lesson with Bryan
Thank you for considering me.
I'm currently an adjunct professor at a local college teaching an awesome group of students the subject of mathematics. Other recent teaching experience included 1) being a High School STEM teacher focused on Math, Computer Science, and Robotics 2) a Teacher Assistant at a local high school 3) a part-time Mathematics Assistant at a prestigious, local college and 4) a FIRST FTC Robotics coach at a local private school. I've also volunteered with Junior Achievement and AmeriCorp tutoring 'at risk' students.
I'm a Secondary Education - Mathematics graduate. My college experience included tutoring college students through the Center for Teaching and Learning. I was also privileged to run a summer math program as part of the college's Crispus Attics Scholarship program. I had received my first bachelor's degree in Computer Science in 1986 with additional studies in Accounting, Business Management and Education. I've enjoyed teaching field experience at local suburban and urban settings.
I've been a husband for 34 years and father for 31. I've been teaching in some form since 1986. I was a nationally ranked swimmer (freestyle sprints) and was also a high school swimming/diving coach. My prior work experience was quite diverse and included working for global, fortune 50 companies. I have also enjoyed international public speaking assignments in Europe.
I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you, initially without charge...then we'll focus on solidifying your foundation, preparing you for growth. It's not about me, it's about you, it's about us making a true connection and helping you to excel...please read my feedback and then let's get STARTED!
Unique approach and worth every penny!
Bryan takes a unique approach to tutoring, establishing a comfortable rapport with the student before even opening the book. He stresses the importance of getting to know the student's personality because he understands that no two people are alike, and therefore no two people learn in exactly the same way. As a tutor, he teaches his students not only how to solve a problem, but also how to think and reason through problems even when they don't fully understand them. Bryan might be slightly more expensive than many tutors out there, but he is absolutely worth every penny! I wish we had found him sooner!Heather, 1 lesson with Bryan
Easy to understand and very patient
Bryan was very patient and explained problems in ways making learning and understanding ten times easier. I felt more confident in my math after just one cession. I will definitely go to Bryan If I need tutoring again!Bruce , 1 lesson with Bryan
Fast response, flexible, and great to work with.
Bryan took on the challenge to help my daughter boost her math score so she could pass the entrance exam to get into a local LPN program. Bryan was prompt in responding to my initial email and was flexible working with my daughters hectic schedule. He was able to jump right in and help my daughter tackle the areas of weakness and build her confidence in working through the problems. After meeting with Bryan my daughter took her exam and passed! This was a huge success for her, in that she had attempted the exam twice on her own and had failed. I am proud to say my daughter has now been accepted into the program thanks to Bryan's help!Lisa , 4 lessons with Bryan
I just had my first lesson with Bryan this past Monday and my first impression was great. He's funny and down to earth and very encouraging. He is helping me study for the ASVAB.Kristina, 1 lesson with Bryan
Methodical problem solver and confidence builder
Bryan was incredibly helpful. He allowed me to set my own pace, and work through my mistakes using simplified examples to demonstrate a complex concept. He gave alternative methods of solving problems when my current method wasn't working.Russ, 1 lesson with Bryan
After just one Algebra II tutoring session with my daughter, I can already see a difference in her confidence level and understanding of the material. She now seems excited to learn more and is looking forward to her next tutoring session with Bryan!Susan, 1 lesson with Bryan

Will definitely use again
Bryan was very knowledgeable. My high school senior son really liked his session with Bryan. Bryan works with our busy schedule and made the most of the time. will definitely use again. Would highly recommend.Austin, 1 lesson with Bryan
Our first session with Bryan was very effective. I have a 16 year old daughter who needs help with math for the SATs. Bryan has a unique way of helping the student figure out the answer themselves so they are ready for the same type of questions on the tests. I would definitely recommend Bryan for any of your children.Kenny, 1 lesson with Bryan
Couldn't be more satisfied
Bryan is great in every way, very patient and keeps the learning FUN! When he was leaving after my son's first session, my son said, "you're the best teacher I've ever had". My son just finished 8th grade, so he's had plenty of teachers. My son has Aspergers and ADHD and he has no problem doing the work for Bryan. He even looks forward to his sessions with Bryan which have been twice a week. No doubt that you and your child will be happy with Bryan.Wendy, 1 lesson with Bryan
