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!

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
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, 7 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
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
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.Shirley, 1 lesson with Brian
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.Monika, 22 lessons with Brian
Knowledgeable and Encouraging
Brian has been very helpful in walking me through problems step by step. He doesn't ask trick questions and when I miss something, he never hesitates to re-explain it or attempt to walk me through the problem an alternative way. I don't feel dumb asking questions and feel that the work in between sessions that he asks me to do is reasonable and beneficial to me. I've already noticed an improvement in my thought process when approaching mathematical problems, which has resulted in both a boost of the number of questions I am getting correct as well as my confidence. Definitely recommend Brian to others in the Philadelphia area who are looking for a GMAT tutor. Brian also charges a very reasonable price for his sessions.Abbey, 3 lessons with Brian
Brian is amazing
Brian has been working with my daughter for several weeks now. When they started my daughter was struggling to obtain C’s. Brian helped her understand the material and has given her a new confidence. She now has a solid B in the class and received her first A on a test last week. Brian is patient and fun and extremely nice. I’m so lucky to have found such an awesome teacher for my daughter. I would give Brian 10 stars!!!Philip, 11 lessons with Brian

Brian helped my daughter gain more confidence. She is grasping the concepts much sooner and has a more thorough understanding of the content. Additionally he works at the pace needed for each topic to be thoroughly comprehended.Laura, 1 lesson with Brian
