About Brandon


Bio

Hey, I'm Brandon! I'm a math and science tutor looking to help students in courses like Calculus, Physics, Algebra, and similar courses. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina with my BSE in Mechanical Engineering, followed by a Master's of Engineering in Aerospace Engineering from USC as well. During my time at USC, I spent the majority of my semesters tutoring for the University's award-winning Student Success Center, where I was formally trained in tutoring...

Hey, I'm Brandon! I'm a math and science tutor looking to help students in courses like Calculus, Physics, Algebra, and similar courses. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina with my BSE in Mechanical Engineering, followed by a Master's of Engineering in Aerospace Engineering from USC as well. During my time at USC, I spent the majority of my semesters tutoring for the University's award-winning Student Success Center, where I was formally trained in tutoring methodology and pedagogy. I also have experience tutoring at the high school and middle school levels as well.

What is tutoring all about for me? It's about creating those "light bulb going on above the head" moments in my students! I've enjoyed being able to help students over the years not only understand the subjects they are learning, but actually get them on an intuitive level and even start to enjoy them. Few things are as exciting as finally getting a handle on something you thought you would never learn, and I love applying my skills to help students get there. If you're ready to take your understanding of difficult subjects to a new height, I'd love to hear from you!

I particularly excel at providing explanations that allow the student to intuitively understand what is going on, and to be able to shift from one approach to another when a student may be struggling with how something is being explained. For any given concept, I usually am armed with at least two or three different ways of explaining it, and adapt readily to the student's needs!

While I am prepared to take on students in a variety of situations, from my experience I know that requesting help early on and regularly is the best pathway to success, so I highly encourage all students to request frequent refresher appointments throughout your class term, rather than one or two super long "cram sessions" before your exams.

Calculus

Tutored Calculus courses at both the college and high school level for over five years, helping students with all levels of comfortability with the subject. Skilled at providing multiple explanations for the same problem, therefore allowing all students to understand the subject intuitively and in a way that is simplest to them. Furthermore, I obtained degrees in both Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, both of which required significant understanding of these topics.

Very polite, patient, and knowledgeable.

Brandon helped me to understand how to determine if differential equations are separable. He also helped me to better understand the test for exactness on differential equations, and how to properly arrive at the general and particular solutions of differential equations. I really enjoyed his method of teaching. He kept me engaged by asking me questions to ensure that I was following along and understanding the subject. I will definitely be reaching out to Brandon in the future for more sessions.
