About Brian


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.

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.

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!!!

My seemed to work well with Brian

My son seemed to appreciate the advice given to him by Brian. We appreciated how patient he was while tutoring Luis. Seems like this was a good match. Looking forward to working 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.

Excellent tutor!

My daughter's first session with Brian was successful. Brian is helping my daughter prepare for her SAT's in December. My daughter is continuing her weekly sessions 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

The best!

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.

Great Tutor

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. Thanks

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.
