Bruce is an Excellent math tutor. My daughter is a 9th grade student, before Bruce started working with her she was a C and just after one session she is now a B+. Thank you very much for your help Bruce.Dec 21, 2019Verified
Bruce helped me with some Math struggles not too long ago and was so incredibly helpful. Thanks to him I was able to pass my final Math class which I was so thankful for, as Math has always been a struggle for me. Bruce was so patient, kind and encouraging and even when he wasn’t able to come to the house, we would video call and he would share a screen where he would thoroughly write out and explain Math problems which was also so helpful. Would absolutely 10/10 recommend Bruce as a Math tutor as he is not only extremely professional but also very kind and very patient.Aug 26, 2019BruceTheTutor's reply
Hi Mikaela, You worked hard and deserve all the credit. Keep flying higher every day!
The impact of Mr. Bruce's efforts will be (forever) a positive impact on our daughter's success in life! She was a fairly difficult student to tutor at first, because she prides herself on doing everything on her own, which until 8th grade had worked for her. However, a family relocation mid-term and a new school, new subjects and new teaching styles, created difficulties. In spite of being a very bright young woman, she was for the first time in her academic career struggling with advanced math. This difficultly quickly eroded her confidence. Mr. Bruce's approach and patience engaged her almost immediately and provided her with the tools to reason through the material successfully. He was able to convince her that even though the material was challenging it was not beyond her ability to understand. This was a pretty significant accomplishment and proof to us that he is a gifted educator. In that original course, our daughter went from nearly failing to achieving an A. Mr. Bruce continued to be a resource to her throughout the remainder of her high school career. She graduated w a 4.3 gpa, w high honors, and the advanced math skills she developed over time helped her get early admission acceptance to UGA where she's on the Dean's list. Mr. Bruce is completely capable (and effective) in both face-to-face sessions as well as in using webinar (and Skype) sessions, which is handy for last-minute sessions. He always try to be flexible w scheduling and ensured he doesn't end sessions until your child is comfortable! We would highly recommend him to any parent and student seeking an academic coach in his areas of expertise.Aug 28, 2019BruceTheTutor's reply

Bruce’s response to our request was immediate. Very professional with a great personality. My daughter was immediately put as ease and is looking forward to Math! Amazing!!Sep 19, 2019Verified
Very Knowledgeable Tutor in AP Physics and AP Calculus! We were so worried when our daughter signed up for AP Physics C which is one of the hardest Physics classes in high school. Bruce is very good and knowledgeable to help her navigate this course. He's also very accommodating whenever we need help for the test/quiz. And, if you ever wonder about the effectiveness of online session, he's very effective online as he's in person. We've done both.Aug 26, 2019BruceTheTutor's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?100% guaranteed satisfaction or no charge if not satisfied. No hassle.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The student is my boss - even if I am older - just a little! I always make sure the student knows it is important to ask questions without any hesitation. Too many students are scared to ask in school for fear or anxiety. I used to also. We all lose when a question is not asked. We all win when the student gets a solid answer and succeeds. I also seek to know exactly what the student needs. I never go in with an agenda to teach my stuff. I answer questions and clarify doubts - that is my priority. Find the need and serve it.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?After failing miserably in high school, my friend's dad saved the day and got me a job teaching math so that I could learn as I was teaching!! This was a life changing experience at 19. During that year of teaching math I had to study really really hard and found that I could do it - if I tried. This life lesson helps me to relate to students who struggle and motivates me to give them those light bulb moments. Getting back into university I rose to the top of the class thanks to this experience. Been tutoring math online and in-person for over 12 years in GA.
