About Bryan

My name is Bryan and I am a tutor specializing in tutoring for elementary and junior high students. I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor's of University Studies degree in Communications, History and Horticulture and Turfgrass Science.

I am a certified teacher in the state of Texas. My first certification is "Generalist 4 -8" which certifies me to teach all four core subject areas for grades four through eight. The four core subject areas are English Language Arts and Reading, Math, Science and Social Studies. My second certification is "Special Education EC-12" which certifies me to teach special education and special needs students for all grade levels from early childhood through twelfth grade.

I believe that patience, adaptability and consistency are vital in tutoring and teaching students. We must be patient in learning about why a student may be having a problem learning and even more so when finding a solution to that problem. We must learn to adapt to each student and their learning styles. And we must be consistent in applying what we have learned.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Science

With a degree concentration in horticulture, I have a strong background in science. I have tutored students with all sections of the TAKS, ACT, SAT and STARR tests which include science. I am also certified to teach science for grades four through eight.

ADD/ADHD

I am certified in the state of Texas to teach special education for grades from Early childhood through twelfth. I work with upper level elementary and junior high children with dyslexia, down syndrome, ADD/ADHD, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and other learning and developmental issues.

Biology

With a degree concentration in horticulture I have an educational background in life science, in addition to a teaching certification that qualifies me to teach science for grades four through eight.

Biology incorporates aspects of chemistry and physics. A fundamental understanding of all sciences is essential for learning biology. I will help students gain proficiency in all aspects of biology including anatomy, botany, cell biology, marine biology, and zoology.

Botany

With a degree in Horticulture and Turfgrass science I have gained much knowledge in the field of plant science. I greatly enjoy learning about plant life and hope to help others gain an appreciation and knowledge of plants and botany.

My expertise is in horticulture, and cultivated plants. I can help students with learning plant biology, plant physiology, plant ecology, agricultural practices, plant identification, crop science and arboriculture.

Dyslexia

I am certified in the state of Texas to teach special education for grades from Early childhood through twelfth. I work with upper level elementary and junior high children with dyslexia, down syndrome, ADD/ADHD, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and other learning and developmental issues.

I have experience tutoring and teaching students at the junior high and elementary level with dyslexia. Working with dyslexic students I have developed several strategies for helping students with reading difficulties.

Ecology

As someone with expertise in horticulture and plant science I am confident with helping students learn about ecology and environmental science. In addition to my educational background, I also hold a teacher certification to teach science for grades four through eight.

I can help students learn life processes, the various adaptations of organisms, the movement of energy throughout the ecosystem, environmental biodiversity and natural resource management.

European History

I am pursuing a degree with a concentration in history. That is, 18 hours of coursework which is the equivalent of an academic minor. In addition to my educational background in history, I am certified to teach social studies and history for grades four through eight.

I can help students with proficiency in all aspects of European history including: Prehistoric Europe, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Byzantium, The Crusades, The Renaissance, the Age of Exploration, colonial expansion, WWI, WWII, and modern day Europe and much more.

Phonics

When tutoring students with phonics I will be as clear and explicit as possible. I will help students to understand basic phonics concepts such as the alphabetic principle, phonemic awareness, phonetic awareness, and word structure.

Social Studies

One of my degree concentrations is in history which gives me a strong educational background in social studies. I am also certified to teach social studies for grades four through eight.
