"Brandon is an excellent tutor. He connects with the student - has an understanding of how your student will learn - and will help your student better comprehend material. My son told me, “Mom, I don't understand the concepts when my teacher explains them in class - but somehow, Brandon just 'gets' how to explain it to me.’ Before we started tutoring with Brandon, my son had a C in Biology. Brandon helped my son occasionally before quizzes & tests - and my son was able to change that C to an A."

"My son loved the practical approach you have to tutoring, the tips on how to do well on the test specifically, from how to approach the questions (and the answers), to the 'pre-game' prep the night before and the day of, to what to concentrate on while prepping. It felt more like a coach than an tutor and was very motivating. He went from 27 to 35 on the science section."
”Brandon is an intuitive and caring tutor. He listens and works with your ‘learning style’ to ensure you have a strong understanding of the material. He not only imparts the skills and curriculum well, but cares enough to build your confidence.” -Student

"My daughter thought your science tutoring was extremely helpful. She liked the small class size. This was the hardest section of the test and she was thrilled to get that science score up to a 30. Thank you so much!”

"I just wanted to let you know my science score that I got on the September exam. You brought me up 6 points to a 34!"

"I just wanted to let you know that I went up 6 points on the science section and got a 31. Thank you so much for all your help and the science tutoring!"

"My child thought your science tutoring sessions were very helpful. She also appreciated receiving test tips that weren't strictly related to science. Thank you."
