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!
Brian has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 25 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Brian is the perfect tutor, and he is the reason our daughter is excelling in Algebra. He is also great to communicate with, flexible with schedules (including staying later than the allotted time if needed to help our daughter grasp concepts), and has the perfect temperament to deal with teenagers. My husband and I would give Brian ten stars on a scale of one to five.Charice, 54 lessons with Brian
Patient and knowledgeable
An important quality in Brian as a math teacher is the ability to help his student form connections with the subject. He will make sure the student understand the concepts rather than just memorizing the equations. He keeps the student engaged and interested in the subject. He is also a good motivator. Thanks Brian for your lessons, it’s totally worth it!Rehna, 8 lessons with Brian
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.Min, 1 lesson with Brian
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!Elizabeth, 7 lessons 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.Sonia, 17 lessons with Brian
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.Andreas, 10 lessons with Brian
My daughter and son like the way he tutors. Patient, understanding, and also he explains the work very simply for my children to understand it. Talking to Brian is like talking to an old friend that you have known for a long time. I give him 5+ because he deserves it.Jenine , 15 lessons with Brian
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.Yasmine, 8 lessons with Brian
