About this tutor

ONE-TO ONE   AND SYLLABUS FOR VISUAL LEARNERS.   ALSO IN HOUSE TEACHING.

I majored in mathematics at Northwestern University . I received an honotary key in mathematics and biology. I tutor from pre-algebra to pre-calculus including geometry, basic statistics/probability.

I feel a one-to one approach is best. This is crucial to good tutoring!! I am able to quickly identify the  student's errors and correct them.  He/she might be totally unaware of his misconceptions. 

I have tutored for seven years and received   badges for best tutors in 2017  .  Many of my students are visual learners, so I created  multiple handout sheets.

I  pride myself in getting the student enthusiastic about his/her work, and in understanding concepts. I break down problems to smaller steps or more basic concepts so he/she can eventually understand the larger concept. 
I realize learning certain concepts can be frustrating and difficult.  I am willing to spend whatever time it takes.

MATH IS MY PASSION!  i AM ALWAYS LEARNING.I JUST COMPLETED AN ONLINE COURSE IN ADVANCED TRIG.

i WILL BE SIGNING UP FOR ANOTHER COURSE SHORTLY.

   I enjoy seeing the smile and excitement when a student masters a concept. Sometimes, my students have a minor misconception which they "learned" years ago.When corrected, their performance dramatically improves . I am grateful that I can be part of their  of their growth.

 MATH IS MY PASSION!

i AM ALWAYS TAKING COURSES. i RECENTLY COMPLETED A ADVANCED PRECALCULUS/TRIG COURSE FROM UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. I AM NOW TAKING ANOTHER ADVANCED PRECALCULUS/TRIG. FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF PADOVA IN ITALY.

    Thank you, Bruce. My daughter was so relieved after her meeting with you today. You helped clear up so much for her and gave her a needed boost of confidence. We will definitely call again when she needs it! You were great with her and I can’t thank you enough.

  • Janice Benton

    I was happy to have found a high-quality tutor to work with my daughter who has an IEP in a short time frame. I highly recommend Mr. Bruce because of his dedicated service to make sure that the students he works with get an understanding of their subject material. He really goes the "extra mile" and the cost which he charges is very economical. I'm very pleased!

  • Karen Grinvalsky

    Highly recommend! My son was close to failing his 8th grade algebra class, but with the help of Bruce he surpassed all expectations; going from an E to an A in the last 9 weeks of school. Bruce was very patient and accommodating to my son’s math anxieties. He even stayed longer than his usual time to make sure my son understood the material. I wish we would have hired him sooner.

  • Karen G.

    Bruce has been tutoring my son in algebra for the past couple of weeks. He is incredibly helpful and great at explaining the core concepts of the algebra my son is currently learning in class. He clearly wants to make sure my son understands the problems and how they are solved.

FAQs


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

  I discuss with the student what are his/her goals. Do they have a quiz or any homework that is due immediately.

We discuss what they are currently studying and what are they struggling with.


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

I majored in mathematics at Northwestern University and received an honorary key.I am amember of Khan Academy and completed their course for teachers . I have completed their SAT course and received 780 in mathematics.

My son has a learning disorder, dyscalcula, and I mentored him in math. He became a CPA. He referred me his friends, and they were very succesful in passing their subject. I enjoyed teaching so much that I decided to tutor. I have taught from basic math , pre-algebra to pre-calculus.

 i have received awards in tutoring, INCLUDING NEWTON'S APPLE,  and badges for best tutor  in 2017 and 2018.

I have found many of my students  are visual learners, so I have created many handouts.I also found that repetition is very helpful. No question is a fooish question except one that is not asked. I am supportive, never critical.


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

I charge a rate of $28.00/hour. however, i charge a fixed rate of $ 30.00. Regardless of the session's length..30,45,60,75,90 minutes, you are charged $30.00

However, ALL RATES ARE NEGOTIABLE!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students who want to improve their grade, pass their SOL, or desire to raise their SAT, ACT, GED score.

   Many students are doing poorly, and they fear failing their subject. However, I cccasionally work with students who are taking honors or accelerated math.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
 I have been tutoring for over 5 years. I teach from pre-algebra to pre-calculus including geometry, basic statistics and probability.If necessary,  I will work with your teacher. Unfortunately,teachers often go rapidly, and the student has no textbook. The student is on his/her own to find solutions. This is frustrating , and the student can feel hopeless. Consequently, I compiled a syllabus which covers the topics  of  pre-algebra. It consists of worksheets which explains the concepts she is exposed to in school.
 I am able to break down  key concepts into smaller principles to facilitate learning. My students are often visual learners, so I have many handouts. I also find repetition essential in learning.. I am never critical. always supportive. I will go at your daughter's/ son's pace and I encourage questions. The only foolish question is one not asked.
