Brian M.

I graduated from Bates College in 2002 with a BA in French, taught English in France for a year, and then worked in biotech in the Boston area. I taught French at a private high school in the Boston area and then taught French as well as tutored students in ESL and Spanish at a private high school in Connecticut. I earned my MBA at Brandeis Heller School after becoming more interested in non-profit management as well as NGOs and international educational organizations. I’m currently obtaining an MS in accounting with the I taught languages for six years, including one year in France where I taught ESL. Meeting with students outside of class for extra help sessions was one of the most important elements of my classes. Because each student has a unique set of gifts, skills, and abilities, I structured my study sessions to meet each student's particular needs. The most important learning often happened during the individual meetings. At Cambridge Community Services I tutored high school students in ESL, writing, study skills, and U.S. history. As I found while working one-on-one with students when I taught in a high school, each student has a special set of strengths, weaknesses, and ways of being motivated. In order to develop an effective tutoring plan, I observe the student working through several tasks typical of the subject the student needs help with, as well as observe how he or she works and thinks. Often times, a student needs help with specific study skills and habits to perform better. I believe positive reinforcement is central to helping any student realize his or her strengths and moving forward. Fun Facts: I love music, traveling, and spending time with friends. My favorite type of music is jazz. I love to travel and explore different cultures and languages. I speak Spanish, French, and a little Portuguese. My favorite outdoor activities are cycling and ultimate Frisbee.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
