About Brian

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!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.

General Computer

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.

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!

Excellent first session with Brian

Brian was a breath of fresh air with his approach and enthusiasm for math. He was able to make our daughter feel at ease and made her feel good about what she knew and helped guide her in areas where she needed assistance.
