I have 10 years of math tutoring experience, which have helped my students achieve top scores on standardized exams. I stress understanding over memorizing formulas to ensure my students can appreciate/enjoy math and apply it to any quantitative career (engineering/data analytics/research).

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

I'm into my second month of weekly guitar lessons with Brett and can't believe how well I am playing already!! I've had some basic guitar lessons in the past but still very much a beginner. Brett knew precisely where to start and what I needed next to advance my playing, and broke it down into attainable steps. So far I've learned a good handful of strum patterns; I can finally play two songs pretty well and sing along; and I am in the rudimentary stage of learning to finger pick. Really love the fact that beautiful sounds are coming from my instrument! Highly recommend if you're ready to make the commitment to becoming a capable player.
Charlie E.
What a terrible experience. I signed up for lessons for my wife from Brett as a gift because he listed times that would work for my wife given that we have a young daughter, and have a hard time making time for lessons. Brett told us 3 days before the lesson that the time wouldn't work, then simply never showed for the rescheduled first lesson. Worse, he simply refused to do scheduling via email (he would leave voicemails and failed to return my wife's call when she called back as they were playing phone tag), and then told us he had another commitment during the slot we had supposedly reserved for him. Worse, he failed to update the site as he continually cancelled lessons and never showed up for scheduled times. I now have a huge hassle of getting a refund on the money I paid for lessons as opposed to a lovely gift for my wife. Life's too short and we're too busy for such an awful experience.

Great teacher for my young daughter

Brett has been a great teacher for my 5 year old daughter. She is just learning the basics of piano and Brett has been great at expanding her skill sets. She really enjoys practicing with him and actually looks forward to when he comes over every week!

The term math is a very broad term covering all math from basic counting through more advanced topics such as statistics, calculus, geometry, algebra and more. I teach all math topics through Algebra I. Algebra I is generally taught in middle school or the first year of high-school. Common to all topics in math is that I use manipulative. Math is an abstract concept. Using visual objects that can also be held and touched makes math easier to understand.

About Becky

Chase was way behind reading in the first grade. It was becoming a serious problem as Chase grew to hate school. That is, until Miss Becky came to help.

Mother, father, teachers, and grandparents all tried to help. But none of us could get to him…he completely shut down. His tears and frustration were heartbreaking for all of us.

In three months of lessons with Chase and coaching for the adults (we changed our approach entirely), Chase not only caught up with first grade reading, but was more than ready for the second grade.

As Chase entered the second grade, we continued lessons with Miss Becky to ensure that Chase did not fall behind. He did very well that school year...what a huge difference from the previous year! He got to the point where he could read everything in front of him. The entire family was elated, especially Chase! Now he could read and understand vocabulary words that were one and two grades ahead of him. As he enters the third grade, reading is no longer a nightmare!!

With Miss Becky's academic knowledge and her very special approach to teaching children, she has made one boy and his family very happy!

Thank you, Miss Becky, from the very bottom of all of our hearts!

Becky helped my children immensely! She was able to assess their knowledge base, highlight areas that required improvement and fine tune those areas they were doing well in. She was engaging, encouraging, organized, clear and concise with her teachings, which resulted in enormous growth. We highly recommend Becky and can not thank her enough for her dedication and fun teaching methods.

"I wish I had found Aron earlier on in my math class, but nonetheless the couple of sessions we had together in preparation for my final exam made the difference! I received an A on the final thanks in large part for his expertise in breaking down a few difficult concepts I had been hung up on. Aron is extremely knowledgeable, professional and takes the time to ensure I understand the underlying principles behind the calculations. He has a very intuitive sense of explaining things from different angles so that the student is able to tackle a wide variety of problems. If you are looking for a math tutor, please stop your search right here and give Aron a call. He will exceed your expectations! I will be utilizing him again and look forward to the sessions!"

"Colin is amazing. I was preparing to take the AFOQTS and my first score was 70... I scheduled lessons with Colin and 2 weeks later I scored a 98 on the actual test! Colin was extremely good at communicating with me, being flexible in our lessons and adopting what he was teaching to exactly what I needed. Like me he had to "relearn" math as an adult and because of that he is able to explain things so that they make sense logically rather than give formulas to memorize like my horrible public school teachers.

I really cannot recommend him enough, thank you for all your help Colin!"
