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.

We could not have been any happier with Bruce. Bruce really heard what our needs where and is delivering results. Our son has been struggling in Physics. Seeing him finally having hope after working one on one with Bruce has been wonderful.

I needed help with my English because I wanted to leave Brazil and move to the USA. Bruce helped me a lot with my doubts about grammar and he improved my pronunciation a lot. I did really well in the IELTS and TOEFL exams. I have been working in Louisiana for over a year now. Thank you Bruce.

The best money I could spend - Patient and knows the subject Bruce breaks the subjects/material down to where it is totally understood. Bruce is patient and teaches in a way that anyone who's not getting it "will" get it. I couldn't have picked a better tutor for my son, who in the beginning had no understanding of the subject at all. He was stressing and afraid of failing Physics. Bruce tutoring style is so excellent until now my son understands the subject/material. The feeling of failing the subject has dissipated all together. [Update] 5/7/2015 I started out poorly in the first quarter of the semester, only achieving "D's" and lower, but after taking Bruce on as my tutor I finally excelled. He... is unrealistically good at his craft. He dismantles every subject and then puts it all back together in an 'easy to read/follow/study' format. He really is easy-going and will stick with you if additional help if needed. I had difficulty understanding basic physics, my instructor gave me the impression that he only had a degree in 'teaching'--nothing specific--, and I needed help. If you are feeling like you can't do ANYTHING at all, Bruce will prove you wrong. He'll get you to where you need to be quicker and faster than anyone, but he'll do it in a way that ensures your understanding is solid. He teaches in a way that best suits your ability to understand or comprehend. You will leave each session with all your questions answered, understanding everything above all else. The "A" on my final exam is proof that his method is best method!!!! Seek this man out if you need the help!!!! Thank you, Bruce! — Paul, 9 lessons with R Bruce

Bruce is the best! Bruce has a wonderful positive attitude and has instilled confidence in our daughter that has been missing for a very long time. Rachael earned an "A" on her last test after not really getting out of the C/D range for a very long time. She could not have done it without his guidance and support! Louisa, 22 lessons with R Bruce

  • 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.
