Hi, I'm Brian and I would love to help you succeed! I have a cum laude degree in Computer Science from California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI) and a CBEST (California Basic Educational Skills Test) credential for educators. I have tutored students in English, Math, Computers and more for over 15 years. I always have high expectations for my students and never give anything away without effort on the student's side. A typical tutoring session usually consists of me asking questions about the subject at hand and having the student generate his or her own responses. This forces each student to think critically about the subject matter and thus learn it better, while at the same time it builds confidence and raises self-esteem. At times I may lecture and diagram things out, but I expect a lot out of any student I tutor because I believe that all students have the capacity to do great things!
During my time as a student tutor at CSUCI, my fellow tutors often recommended me to students that had a particularly hard time understanding a concept. In fact, I would often help tutor for free when I had extra time, as I really do care more about helping your student succeed in school and life than making money. There is nothing I love more than seeing that look on a student's face when he or she finally "gets it" and can apply a concept without further help.
So contact me today and we'll take that area you are having trouble with and allow you to shine like I know you can!
