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!

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.Lori, 36 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, 7 lessons with Brian

Knowledgeable and Patient
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

Thorough and prepared…Ready to tutor!
Brian is an excellent tutor who came prepared to meet my daughter's needs. He is excellent at teaching what he knows to his students. I am very picky and highly selective, and he passed with flying colors! Terrific!Geri, 12 lessons with Brian
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
My son has had two lessons with Brian and, so far, we are very happy to have him as a math teacher. Brian is an excellent teacher and a very calm person. My son learned a lot from him and gained so much confidence. I am happy to see him doing great in school. ThanksHetal, 24 lessons with Brian
A great, charismatic tutor
I reached out to Brian looking for help with the quantitative and critical reasoning part of the GMAT. I have been out of school for a few years and needed a refresh on math topics tested on the GMAT. Brian and I met up Saturday September 20 at the public library. We chatted a bit about where I struggled most and then we got to work. Brian did a great job walking me through, step by step, how to solve problems involving things like fractions, decimals, and ratios. I will try some questions on topics we covered and go to Brian with questions. I think if we continue down this path I will have the confidence and knowledge to succeed.Brittany, 6 lessons with Brian
