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!

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
My daughter was having a hard time with trig. So I looked online and after looking through a lot of online tutors I came across WyzAnt and found Brian. Brian has been working with my daughter and he has helped her a lot. I'm so glad I found Brian, He is easy to reach and is always there for her. So if you are looking for a tutor Brian is the ONE YOU WANT. Thank you Brian.Denise, 15 lessons with Brian
Brian came to our home with short notice and tutored my daughter for one hour for her Math SAT's. When she retook the test a few days later -Woot Woot! Her Math score went up from 590 to 710 --120 points!!!! Ya can't beat that. This was more about helping her review and calming her stress and increasing her confidence as she of course had a working knowledge and grasp of this subject in order to achieve these scores. She had had a complication taking her first SAT's that set her off her mark, but we are certain that Brian's help and expert knowledge of Math SAT's was essential to this increase. Thank you Brian. We are happy to recommend you to others. I didn't realize I had to rate you within a certain time frame... So I am doing it here ... 5 stars!Kristin, 1 lesson with Brian
