I have ten years' experience coaching in academics and have been doing it since I was in junior high school. My foci are math and writing, and I have coached students from the ages of ten through fifty in subjects ranging from addition and subtraction to advanced mathematics like calculus, linear algebra and differential equations, as well as writing research papers and stories.

I have ten years' experience coaching in academics and have been doing it since I was in junior high school. My foci are math and writing, and I have coached students from the ages of ten through fifty in subjects ranging from addition and subtraction to advanced mathematics like calculus, linear algebra and differential equations, as well as writing research papers and stories. It is my belief that for the most part people can teach themselves pretty much any subject imaginable. I just provide technical help.
I live and work in a beautiful, mostly natural environment south of Black Mountain, NC, where we have the option of working inside or out, standing, sitting, walking, working on non-academic things, or running. I do not travel except in very special circumstances, as I love where I live and am at home there.
Working with me is likely to be different from other academic coaching or tutoring experiences you may have had. Instead of shutting out life to focus on abstract things, we work in a place where life is flowing around us. Connecting with that life, even to a small degree, is likely to help you not only with academics but also possibly deeper things. If nothing else, visiting a more natural setting is a relief for your senses and your soul.

I am so very grateful to have Bruce J. give me tutorials! I was out of school for about 15 years and have forgotten some stuff. I could have not made it without his guidance and instructions through the Statistics course I am taking in my last semester. Bruce not only is a Math genius knowing the subject but he is also creating a conducive environment, calm ambiance and lots of patience without the intimidation and the "Math fear" I have felt at the beginning of this course. I cannot thank him enough!DANIELA, 5 lessons with Bruce
Excellent Statistics Tutor

I will be requesting further lessons for certain!
While clearing up misunderstandings and wrong ideas, Bruce also saw where i was on track and gave me a boost in confidence going forward, giving clear and convincing analogous reasoning.Phil, 2 lessons with Bruce
Bruce promptly responded to an email sent out for help with a statistics class. I am enrolled in an online program where semesters are only eight weeks long. The classes move fast and furious. He was available for a tutoring session within 48 hours of making initial contact with me. Bruce was obviously very knowledgeable about statistics and math overall. Bruce was able to explain concepts, formulas, and even showed me how to use my new TI-84 plus calculator. Bruce is professional, timely, and trustworthy.Chris, 1 lesson with Bruce
Bruce was a joy to work with. He took the time to explain difficult concepts and demonstrated both patience and empathy in breaking topics down to a more simplistic level. His ability to help out in areas that didn't necessarily pertain to his specialty really helped me considerably! I highly recommend Bruce to work with - you won't be disappointed.Patrick, 5 lessons with Bruce
Terrific tutor who genuinely understands advanced math concepts
Bruce has a deep understanding of advanced college level calculus. He helped me get through a very challenging semester that included calculus 3. There were a couple of times that Bruce came by outside his normal time, and on very short notice, to help me when I was struggling with the material. I would not have passed the class without his help. Thanks Bruce!David, 5 lessons with Bruce
