Please visit "RATINGS/REVIEWS" and end your MATH/CHEMISTRY struggling NOW! Supportive, rock-solid reliable and NURSING/PREMED-devoted, I've used patience and kindness to build trust between HONORS Geometry, Algebra 1, HONORS Algebra 2, Precalculus, SAT/ACT/GRE/ISEE MATH, Trigonometry, COLLEGE Algebra, HONORS Chemistry, PRE-AP Chemistry, AP Chemistry, IB Chemistry, INTRODUCTORY Chemistry, GENERAL Chemistry, ORGANIC Chemistry and BIOCHEMISTRY students. MEDICAL FIELD individuals have gained additional career and personal benefits even beyond those achieved from the tutoring.
A conceptually-oriented, insightful individual who fine-tunes development of one's critical-thinking skills to cut down on unnecessary memorization, I am particularly adept at working with students taking HONORS Algebra 2 and HONORS Chemistry at SHEPTON, JASPER and RICHARDSON High Schools, AP Chemistry at PLANO WEST Senior High School and RICHARDSON, ALLEN, LIBERTY and HEBRON High Schools, IB Chemistry at Plano East Senior High School and Allen and Garland High Schools, and the whole year of both GENERAL Chemistry and ORGANIC Chemistry at UTD, SMU and all DCCCD/Collin College locations. Tutoring is offered YEAR-ROUND on regular weekly schedules, in advance of SAT/ACT/GRE MATH tests, course quizzes or unit/EOC exams, during summers when individuals deal with fast-paced (typically 20 days or sometimes longer) TRADITIONAL or ONLINE INTRODUCTORY Chemistry, GENERAL Chemistry 1 and 2 and ORGANIC Chemistry 1 and 2 or desire a head start for fall AP Chemistry and ORGANIC Chemistry courses, and, finally, long-term with INTRODUCTORY Chemistry, GENERAL Chemistry and ORGANC Chemistry students taking either TRADITIONAL or ONLINE courses and ultimately pursuing an allied health, psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, premed, biomedical engineering, pharmacy, dental or nursing career. I have tutored steadily for 20+ years (to have included under a STEM-administered grant while an instructor at Mountain View College within the DCCCD) and have also during this time made positive classroom impacts upon literally thousands of Middle School, High School and College learners.
My general approach toward tutoring is that heading into each session students are encouraged to bring in relevant questions addressing their most immediate needs and wants in connection with classroom lecture notes/discussions, online/written assignments, prior practice exams and quizzes, and lab activities. Nevertheless, I am always ready with additional pertinent HONORS Geometry, Algebra 1, HONORS Algebra 2, Precalculus, Trigonometry and ACT/SAT/GRE MATH supplemental resources and handouts and a variety of HONORS Chemistry, PRE-AP Chemistry, AP Chemistry, IB Chemistry, INTRODUCTORY Chemistry, GENERAL Chemistry, ORGANIC Chemistry and BIOCHEMISTRY materials to accommodate either the visual or hands-on learners and add clarity and learning reinforcement to concepts under discussion. Sometimes these extras even set the tone for a particular lesson. I then proceed consistently in very clear English (saying it again as many times as needed, even in everyday terms) with accurate and correctly-sequenced steps, resulting in "Got it" and "That makes sense" being regularly heard. These guided approaches ultimately enable the students to achieve their most important objectives. Now, what more can you ask for?

Tremendous Chem and Algebra II tutoring session
Thanks Bruce! I checked in w Emily and she agreed that your help this week was tremendous. Really appreciate your flexibility in being able to support both her Algebra II needs as well as Chemistry.Miya, 28 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Thank you, Miya. I am totally committed to having Emily succeed to the greatest extent possible with both her PAP Algebra 2 and Chemistry at Hillcrest High School.
Have invited Bruce back to help both kids.
Always patient and informative, Bruce has helped both my High school age kids, Algebra 2 with my daughter and algebra with my son. Pleasure to work with over the years.David, 131 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Hi David. Thank you very much for your recent feedback. It has been a real pleasure to have had a 3-year and continuing relationship with your family during which time I have mentored your son through Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and Chemistry at Shepton High School and currently am forging ahead with Algebra 2 there involving your daughter. Dr. Bruce
Dr. Bruce knows his stuff!
I had my first session with Dr. Bruce this past weekend. He was so helpful in making Chemistry understandable for me. I will certainly continue to see him for help.Wade, 8 lessons with Bruce
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
This was my daughter's first tutoring session with Dr. Bruce for Pre-calculus. He taught her to solve problems step by step, stopping and correcting her immediately if there was a mistake. We will continue more sessions with him.Reshma, 2 lessons with Bruce
Very experienced, knowledgable and fun tutor.
Bruce helped my daughter gain more confidence just after her first session. He showed her how to go back and review her work, shortcuts by using antonyms and also explained fully what he was teaching. Very organized!Danita, 3 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Thank you very much, Danita, for your feedback. Instilling a higher level of confidence in the student from the very get-go has been one of my top priority objectives toward helping to establish a strong student-tutor relationship. I'm glad I was able to foster this in connection with your daughter's experience in Pre-AP Chemistry at Allen High School. Dr. Bruce
Subject Matter Expert and Personable
Not only is Dr. Bruce a subject matter expert in Chemistry, he knows how to present the lesson in a way that is personable and promotes retention. His passion for the field of Chemistry is exhilarating and it is pleasure to see the glimmer in his eyes as he presents the subject.Scarlet, 7 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Scarlet, Thank you very much for your kind feedback. Thus far it has been a real pleasure for me and has stretched my thinking abilities to have provided support for your daughter as her IB Chemistry challenges at Garland High School continue to unfold. Dr. Bruce
Very patient tutor.
Bruce helped my son understand his chemistry homework. He has lots of patience and has helped to build confidence in test-taking. I can see that he is getting better in his grade. Thanks for helping!Alex, 4 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Alex, Thanks very much for your feedback. I always come away with a good feeling when I've made that positive impact.
Knows his Chemistry
Dr. Bruce knows his Chemistry. My daughter has had 4 sessions with him now. He comes well prepared and there is no second guessing with his explanations; which is the last thing that any student wants when they are trying to understand a concept. He always leaves her with something that she can build upon and makes her think.Kim, 8 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Kim, thank you very much for your take on how I've been able to connect with your daughter. The IB level of Chemistry as taught at Garland High School requires no less than this level of commitment accompanied by effective methods of instruction, with the ultimate goal of enhancing one's proficiency in sharpening conceptual skills.
Wise and extremely resourceful
Dr. Bruce is a great tutor. He is very direct in how he teaches the topics at hand. We worked on acids/bases equilibriums, equilibrium constants, and other Chemistry II topics. I really find his visual style of teaching very helpful. He makes sure to be able to give several different examples to problems that we go over. He is very resourceful, and is always prepared. I love that he is able to immediately pull out sample questions over the topics we are covering during our tutoring sessions. I highly recommend him to anyone that is serious about improving in their studies.Sharon, 8 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Thank you very much for your objective feedback that, once again, captures the very essence of my tutoring style and whole approach to tutoring. I hope that I will continue to enable you to achieve both your immediate Collin College and longer-term goals through my unwavering support.
Dr. Bruce helped my daughter's test and homework on 7th grade math. Overall experience is great. Dr. Bruce is a very patient and clear tutor.serena, 3 lessons with BruceTutor responded:
Thank you very much, Serena, for your feedback. I will derive a great deal of satisfaction from doing my part to help your daughter continue to excel with 7th grade math and, at the same time, acquire the skills and good habits that will serve her well for future Math needs.
