About Brian

This past Christmas I ended up teaching the basic fundamentals of Wireless Communications to my 13 year old niece who absolutely hates math.

I think the hardest part to teaching students especially in High School is to provide the motivation behind what they are learning and what is important for. I agree, High School math can be very boring and difficult. It is hard to teach students the value behind problem solving to find a solution. Unfortunately with all the standardized test that are out today students are ending up being trained instead of educated. As a tutor my goal is not to help students just solve cookie cutter standard questions, but to really gain the understanding of the problem and educated them how to step by step problem solve so they can tackle any problem, just not the ones they have seen before.


I am a visual learner, which made electrical engineering a challenge. I feel the best way to learn anything is to be able to either feel it, see it, or imagine it. I've always been week with pure memorization. The only way I was able to succeed was through visualization.

I've recently taken the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam, and passed the Professional Engineering exam in Control Systems.

I also just passed the Cisco Certified Network Associate exam.

I'm exited for the opportunity to help you or your child succeed!
