About Brian

As a father of three children in grade school, I understand many of the difficulties that students can have in truly understanding math, science, and other classes. Each child learns a little differently. Once you recognize this, the goal becomes finding the best way to help them understand the topic.

Growing up and throughout my years in school my favorite subjects were always math and science, although I did well in just about every subject. I am frequently told by my children and others that I explain topics in a way that is easy to understand.

I spend many hours working with students to help them understand math concepts and improve their skills in subjects like algebra and geometry. As you might imagine, strong math skills were a critical part of my computer science education.

I earned a degree in computer science and have spent eighteen years working with technology. Most of my professional work involves analysis and documentation of computer systems. This requires a knowledge of SQL and programming. I frequently use Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Powerpoint and have a thorough understanding of each of those applications. I also have over ten years of experience in HTML, CSS, and web design.

Please contact me about any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you to reaching your GPA and test score goals.

I have the following academic credentials:
B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Computer Science

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota. Since graduating, I have nearly 20 years professional experience using my knowledge and skills in Computer Science. I also work with many different students and try to tutor them in a way they can best learn. I am often complimented on how I make complex topics understandable.

Elementary Math

I have tutored in elementary math for eight years.

I would highly recommend Brian, as he is patient and was very flexible with the times we met. He was also able to research a great deal about the topic I needed help with to find a great solution tailored to my specific project. There are a lot of tutors with SQL experience, Brian stands out!
