Bio

Hi everyone, my name is Brian. If you are considering Math subject tutoring, SAT tutoring or Writing tutoring, look no further! I'm a graduate of Boston College, and Math and Writing have always been my strongest academic subjects.

Hi everyone, my name is Brian. If you are considering Math subject tutoring, SAT tutoring or Writing tutoring, look no further! I'm a graduate of Boston College, and Math and Writing have always been my strongest academic subjects. I want to sit down and work with students to look at what is giving them problems either with academic subjects such as Math or Writing, or with the SAT. No more worrying about those classes and tests in school, and increased readiness and decreased anxiety for the SAT!

If you need to address problems with Pre-algebra, Algebra, or any other level of Algebra you will be happy to hear that Algebra has always been my strongest subject. Additionally, I have provided a large amount of tutoring for Geometry and additional tutoring in Math subjects like Elementary Math, Trigonometry, etc. When I work with students I like to use my Math skills to first tutor/teach concepts in school, then help with problem-solving and test-preparedness. When providing Writing tutoring, I help students with research, planning, outlining and proofreading.

When you need to take the SAT test I can help you get ready to earn a great score. When I took the SAT, for the Math portion I earned a score of 800...yes, a perfect score! I know how important it is to earn a high standardized test score to help get accepted into college---I want to make it easier for you to earn that higher score.

While participating in a previous tutoring/mentoring program, I worked with high school students living in a group home in the Philadelphia area. I provided 1-on-1 tutoring, either for Math school subjects in general or to prepare for tests. My work continues here with Wyzant!

Please send me a message so we can talk about scheduling tutoring lessons. I'll answer any questions you have!

Public Speaking

Let's conquer that fear of speaking in public! Remember, it begins with you-what you know, what you want to tell/teach someone, etc. I will make sure you can deliver all of what you already have, to any audience. This can be to groups in high school, college, or in a work setting. My public speaking experience began almost 18 years ago, in competitive debate. It involved researching and becoming an advocate for a topic, and delivering a speech detailing my point of view. Later in competitive speaking, I learned to memorize written material (plays, stories) and deliver the material to audiences of all sizes - anywhere from 10-15 people to a large room of 300 people. In a professional setting, I was often required to prepare training materials and deliver short presentations to as little as 1-3 people and as many as 10 people. Let me help you feel confident in public speaking! I can teach you voice techniques, body techniques, and delivery techniques, to make your speaking as clear as possible! I can make sure you will be able to clearly present and deliver what you need, and that you are not nervous or have any anxiety while doing it!

If you are looking to learn your way around using a computer, let me help you! I have almost 20 years experience using computers, and want to help show you how to be more comfortable around them. My experience includes home use (typing documents, using the Internet, viewing and working with photos, etc.), use in school (creating documents, spreadsheets, presentations, Internet research, etc.), and use in the workforce (sending individual and group emails, creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations). But before we get into details, let me help you start to use the basics of the computer-the keyboard and mouse, basic typing, then we can use your computer to look at family photos, perform research on the Internet, and anything else that you need.

Terrific SAT tutor

Brian helped my son prepare for the SAT. He quickly put my son at ease and they were able to get to work right away. He was very patient and helpful with content and strategy. Highly recommend!

Meg, 3 lessons with Brian

Patient and very nice tutor

Brian is a very nice tutor, he is sincere, pleasant, patient and detail oriented. Catherine brought up the topics she couldn’t master in school, Brian would patiently go through the problems step by step and make sure that Catherine would be able to solve it by herself. I would recommend Brian for tutoring.

Very patient instructor

Brian knows how to connect to the student to help them do their best. He takes extra time to make sure our son understands a skill set before moving on. Brian has a large array of knowledge that allows us to change the subject matter without skipping a step.

Dino, 3 lessons with Brian

Patient, Considerate, and Methodical

While we're just really getting started, it's already clear Brian enjoys working with students. He encourages, checks regularly for understanding, rewards through compliments, and is patient with my daughter. With regard to working with me as the parent, he's extremely polite, personable, and solicitous. We're looking forward to working together further with Brian!

Knowledgeable, Patient & Well Rounded Tutor

Our son who is in the Autism Spectrum was struggling getting through some subjects and the school teachers weren't enough help. He really wants to attend a 4-year college so we knew we needed to get him additional help via private tutoring. Brian has done a wonderful job with him. Brian is very patient and has a way to assist and teach him using different strategies that he better understands. He's well rounded on all subjects and has also began SAT prep with him as he's a Junior in HS this year. Our son's counselor said this is his best year yet. We are confident that Brian has helped him get to where he is.

Excellent tutor

Very patient and really makes sure my daughter has a good grasp of material before moving on. Breaks things down to make problems easier to figure out. We have been using him now a few times a week preparing for upcoming SAT.

1st Lesson was phenomenal!

The first lesson with Brian was incredibly helpful and made me very optimistic about my chances with the GMAT. He tailored his lesson specifically to how I learn best and taught me easy to use math tricks. I'm definitely looking forward to our next lesson.

Brian was very easy to talk to and my son seemed to engage and listen. He is actually looking forward to getting better in this subject.

PSAT prep

My daughter has been working with Brian for a while now: she needed some help with Algebra 2 her sophomore year. She was meeting with Brian every 2 weeks for 2 hours throughout school year and ended up with an A. Right now, Brian is helping her get ready for PSAT. We will most likely continue throughout her junior year to make sure she is ready for SAT. Brian is very knowledgeable, patient, always on time and - needless to say - effective.
