Consulting in complex systems engineering
I thoroughly enjoy interacting with students to help them think and learn.
Brian is a wonderful tutor. Flexible with his time, patient and encouraging. My son likes him very much and said he feels like he understands math a lot more. I am very grateful I found Brian and if my son should feel he needs additional help I will definitely be reaching out.
Brian has been our 9th-Grade daughter's mathematics tutor for quite some time now. We have taken much joy in observing Tabitha's swift and continued progression in math as well as a leap in her confidence whilst under the tutorial ship of Brian. We sincerely hope that Brian will continue to tutor Tabitha throughout her remaining school years, indeed she would be very fortunate if this was the case. Brian is an excellent teacher, patient, and kind. My husband James and I recommend Brian without reservation.
Brian was a volunteer in my eighth-grade math classroom, where I taught algebra. I retired in June. Brian often indicated to me that he enjoyed working with my students, and he hoped his presence would add some inspiration and motivation to the classes he visited. Because of his practical experience, he was frequently able to share with my students how the math might be useful in the real world, particularly with respect to engineering. His thorough and deep knowledge of the subject area made him a welcome presence. Brian was also completely willing to help me “work the room” as we checked on students’ progress and answered their questions. In turn, they became comfortable with his presence and were at ease having him help them. Finally, Brian was often willing to encourage students to think in a new way about the solution to a problem. I would strongly recommend Brian as a tutor. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
