Hi, my name is Brendan C. and I am happy to assist you or your children achieve academic success. I am a graduate from the University of Maryland honors college with a degree in chemistry. I am currently working towards my masters in electronic materials engineering through University of California Los Angeles. At this point, I have tutored for over 8 years working with students at almost every public and private high school in NW DC and southern Montgomery County. As a chemistry major, I... [more]
Brendan has scored in the top 1% of both the SAT and the GRE math sections. He has extensive experience tutoring high school students and they really enjoy working with a young fresh, college graduate. Students find him extremely related, and enjoy his clear, concise explanations.
Whether it's solving quadratic equations, simplifying complex numbers, or understanding domain/range of various functions, I love bringing algebra 2 to life and seeing students smile as they overcome a frustrating math topic. I am very familiar with common core and the other curriculums in and around the DC area.
I received a 5 on the AP Calculus exam, and have about seven years of experience tutoring students in all math and science courses.
In high school, I received A's in both my honors chemistry and AP chemistry courses in Eleanor Roosevelt High School's science and technology program. I went on to receive a 5 on the AP chemistry exam and love the subject so much that I went on to major in it at University of Maryland. I completed my degree in only 3 years - receiving high marks in all of my chemistry lecture courses. However, you should know that I do more than just chemistry! I can also help with any math course up through differential equations, physics, all SAT/ACT sections, and even college essay drafting. I explain concepts in a calm, clear and effective manner that students really enjoy!
I received A's in my precalculus honors course in high school (Eleanor Roosevelt's Science and Technology Magnet Program). I also received very high scores on the math SAT (790) and Math quantitative GRE (168/170). I've worked with students for the past several years at many private and public high schools in the Bethesda Chevy Chase / Rockville area.
I recently received a perfect 800 on the Math section of the SAT (Taken November 2018). I've also received and 800 on the SAT Math Subject Test II. I have worked with nearly 100 SAT students over the last 8 years. During this time, I regularly see students improve their math SAT score by 50-150 points after 5-10 sessions.

I have always performed exceptionally well on standardized math assessments. My math SAT score was a 790/800 and my math GRE score was a 168/170. Although, I've always narrowly escaped perfection on these exams, my knowledge is endless and there is a never a question I can't figure out how to solve. I have helped students prepare for the Math section of the ACT for several years and students normally see a 4-6 point improvement in their scores. I recently helped a student achieve a perfect overall ACT score in the summer of 2017. I am extremely patient, calm, kind and provide clear explanations. In addition to the math section, I can also help your son or daughter with any part of the ACT!
I am currently a University of Maryland student majoring in chemistry. I have taken both organic chemistry I and II, and received an A in both courses. I have tutored 4 students in this class over the past year and they have all been very satisfied with their success in the course.
