About Bryan


Bio

I am one of the leading tutors on Wyzant's platform for the SAT, ACT, and the verbal section of the GRE. I have over 15 years of tutoring experience, and I have worked with countless students to meet their individualized goals.

In my sessions, students learn proven approaches to each test. We then apply those approaches by practicing on official ACT, SAT, and GRE test items. Students gain confidence and clarity from session to session.

I am one of the leading tutors on Wyzant's platform for the SAT, ACT, and the verbal section of the GRE. I have over 15 years of tutoring experience, and I have worked with countless students to meet their individualized goals.

In my sessions, students learn proven approaches to each test. We then apply those approaches by practicing on official ACT, SAT, and GRE test items. Students gain confidence and clarity from session to session.

There's a moment that happens at least once in every tutoring session I lead. A breakthrough. A light bulb moment. A smile. An "I get it now."

These moments are precisely why I love tutoring. These tiny epiphanies change students' mindsets about learning, and if you have enough of them, they change your score. And if you boost your ACT or SAT or GRE score, that could mean new scholarship offers in your mailbox or a new set of college or university options.

As soon as I graduated from college, I wanted to jump right into the classroom to teach. I love helping students reach their goals, realize their potential, and gain self-confidence through seeing their grades and test scores increase. I've been in K-12 education for my entire career, serving as an English teacher, Dean of Curriculum and Instruction, and Director of Academics for a school system. Now I work with school district leaders to improve their instruction across their schools.

As a teacher, I was named a Level 5 ("Most Effective") teacher by the State of Tennessee. At Rhodes College, I won the John R. Benish Award for Excellence in English, and I spent a semester studying abroad at the University of Oxford. I have a doctorate in education (Ed.D.) from Vanderbilt University, and a Master's of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) from Christian Brothers University.

As a tutor and professional, I hold myself to a high standard. I look forward to hearing from you! Let's make some "light bulb moments" happen.

Very Knowledgeable!!

My son is getting ready for his ACT test for the 2nd time and is wanting to get it up a few more points. Got a 30 the first time! Bryan was able to help Cayden review and go over everything he needed to know to do just that! Highly recommend!

Helpful Tutor

Bryan H.'s strategies for the writing portion of the SAT were extremely helpful. He especially helped in advising me to underline parts of passages, think about passages' meanings before answering questions, and pointing out subtle grammar mistakes like comma splices. Thanks to him, my SAT score was raised by 70 points.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

This is my son’s first tutoring session for SAT and ACT prep and I am so glad he is working with Bryan! We can’t wait to see the progress as tutoring sessions continue.

Highly Recommended ACT Tutor!

Bryan worked with my son to prepare for the ACT test. My son had a very specific goal that included raising his current score three points. We were so happy to get his score and see he met his goal! A three point composite increase! This was his third time taking the test and he scored the highest ever in each subject this time after working with Bryan. Bryan was patient, organized and presented the material in a way my son improved his understanding in a big way. He provides not only subject knowledge, but strategies on the ACT specifically that helped my son increase his score. He also provided great feedback after each lesson. I highly recommend Bryan to anyone looking for a great ACT tutoring experience.

Bryan is doing a great job with my daughter preparing her for the SAT! He plans each lesson according to her strengths and weaknesses to help her achieve her potential!

Good session with a rough subject

Bryan helped my son analyzing a speech for his English class. Although my son still hates English, he does now understand what he needs to do and will be able to complete the assignment. Celebrate small victories!

SAT Reading

I sat through the lesson. Bryan knew how to ask the right questions, engage, and get my daughter thinking. He had her exercise several concepts And repeat back what she had learned at the end of the session. He gave her tools in a google doc to practice what he had taught as well as a test for the next session. It was a productive efficient hour well worth the time and money!!
