Middle Tennessee State University (Aerospace Technology)
Hello, my name is Brendan and I have always had a passion for teaching and tutoring. I grew up in Los Angeles, but I've lived in Lakeland, Tennessee for most of my life. Throughout my time at Arlington High School, I always took Honors and AP courses whenever possible, so I graduated in 2010 with a 4.0 gpa (Highest Possible) and an Honors Degree. I graduated in 2014, and part of the Dean's List, from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelors Degree in Aerospace Technology. I minored in Mathematics and Engineering Technology. So I have lots of experience in the following areas of study: Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Computer Science, Aerodynamics, Differential Equations, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Chemistry, Statics, Dynamics, Digital Circuits, Linear Algebra, AutoCad, Thermodynamics, and World History and Geography. Throughout my college experience, I've always had fellow students come to me for help since I was able to learn the material better than the professor could teach it. I'm easily able to identify the areas that professors and teachers love to test people over. I prefer to teach through example as I see it as the best way to learn. When doing problems, I always start with the simplest ones before moving on to the more advanced ones. It's obviously most important that the basics are mastered before trying anything tough.
I know how tough it can be to ask for help; I was the type of person that never asked questions when I had problems. Of course, I now realize how much more I would have learned if I had just asked for help. That's why I wanted to be a tutor so badly; to help those who need it.

Brendan has been helping my son throughout the term before the Algebra II Honors tests, and my son has a 95 average! We are so pleased with his work with our son thus far!
My son needed help with math and Brendan has been a great resource with helping him understand concept of geometry.
Brendan helped my son with honors geometry and review for his semester exams. Will definitely have him tutor again.
Brendan was a great teacher for my son! He was very patient and explained the entire process of each algebra problem thoroughly.
The kids enjoyed their first sessions with Brendan. It also helps that he is very knowledgeable of math. I'm sure they are looking forward to all the wonderful things he will teach them over the summer to better prepare them for the upcoming school year.
I don't know what you did, Brendan, but Daniel has been killing it!! He said Brendan knew everything about precalculus and showed him better ways to work the problems. He's been doing great on his homework just after one session with Brendan. We'll be calling him back for a few ACT review sessions. He's taken it several times but he still wants a higher score. Thanks for everything! I'm one happy mom!
Brendan has done a great job connecting with my nephew, building rapport and inspiring him to work hard at his school work. I highly recommend him.
After six weeks, Jack's grade is up 26% !! This is a huge success.
Brendan has hung in and connected with a kid who is not easy to connect with and made HUGE improvements in his grades and more important, in his understanding of the subject matter and confidence and self-esteem.
I highly recommend Brendan M.
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.
I took the ACT three times and got a 29 in the Math section each time.
I took Honors Algebra 1 and 2 in high school and passed both with over 100. I took College Algebra and passed with an A.
I took Honors Geometry in High School and passed with over 100.
