About this tutor

As an Academic Achievement Specialist, I help others gain confidence through engaging in activities tailored to meet their needs. I provide tutoring and other educational services, such as group presentations and small group goal-oriented exercises. With over 20 years of experience working with children, I strive to focus on enhancing strengths and not "weaknesses" by heightening one's awareness of those things which are in one's control.

I love seeing the growth. When a student "gets it" I feel like my job isn't done yet, but just getting started. I now know that they've had a taste of success and I want to give them more

    Bryan listened to my needs...and then worked with my teenage son. He was able to get to know him and his strengths/weaknesses. I was sorry to see him go.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Clients contact me and we figure out whether I'm a match. Sometimes this takes a few sessions, but I do not string them along.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been an educator for over 17 years. Teaching science and some math, I have found it's not just what you teach, but how you teach it. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My prices are listed on my website, but they are negotiable. academicachievementspecialist.com


How did you get started teaching?

I just loved imparting knowledge. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students elementary school-age through college-age.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently developed a scavenger hunt for my children and one of their friends. They had clues that told them, after they figured out each clue, where we would go next


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure that the teacher/tutor will be honest in all of the things he/she will do. If the answer escapes the tutor, and you suspect it, that person should tell you he/she doesn't know the answer and let you know where to find it. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. Are they ready to take advice from someone they don't really know?

2. What questions are they going to ask the tutor--just about homework or extensions?

3. Ask the tutor how what they are learning today connects with prior and future learning.?
