Brian

I have passion for tutoring. I have an undergraduate degree in Finance, and I also carry an MBA in Finance. I've been in the business world for four years now, and I've always wanted to tutor and give others the help they need to match the same educational success that I've experienced in my life. My methods for success are simple, it takes patience and encouragement for kids to find success in certain areas especially in Math and English. If you hire me, you will be getting someone who has a passion in seeing success and improvement with whoever I tutor, and I will bring patience and new methods in order for your kid to truly grasp the material they receive in the classroom.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My methods for success are simple; it takes patience and encouragement for kids to find success in certain areas, especially in Math and English.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Introduce myself, and have them introduce themselves to me. Find out what their interests are, and begin the process of improving the subjects they are weak in.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By showing not only showing them methods on how they can improve a skill, but by challenging them by having them show me that they clearly understand the material.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Continual encouragement and follow-up does wonders to a student's self-esteem.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Break the concept down for the student. Go through every piece with the student that makes up a concept, and have them show me they understand.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Have them break out a passage by paragraph. After each paragraph, ask them questions on what they read.
