Hi! I'm a 4th year engineering student at UBC, Vancouver! I've held previous science teaching jobs as well as engineering jobs so I have a deep understanding of concepts and their applications.

Methodology

I like to teach students understanding of concepts rather than memorization of techniques or equations. With deep understanding, the equations come easier.

I also give real world applications of the concepts being learnt so students understand the relevance of it! This technique has worked well for me in the past and has gotten me a scholarship to study engineering at UBC.

As a student myself, I am able to empathize with students and I try to make lessons as engaging as possible so that students can get the most value out of their time.

One of our best! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and responds during the day. Brent will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

Teaching has always been something I've loved and as such my experience reflects it. My very first job in high school was as a sports coach and mentor at a summer camp. The following summer, I worked at a STEM for Kids Summer camp where I helped teach children science, and coding. Since it was summer, extra emphasis was placed on making the learning fun and hands-on. I use this same philosophy when I am tutoring now giving relevant examples and making learning as engaging and fun as possible.

Being an engineering student I have gained over a year of experience working in engineering positions and am currently working at AME Consulting. My diverse experiences in the industry have exposed me to the many ways in which the material that you learn in school is applicable to your career. This background helps me to show the student that what they're learning is relevant. Learning about some of the issues faced in industry also helps them develop better critical thinking and problem solving abilities.

Perfect! He was great at helping break down practice problems into smaller components and explaining the concepts that each question was testing. Also very patient when it took me a lot of time to grasp a concept, and tried to explain it in different ways. Wound up with an A+ in the course!

M
Matthew

Perfect! I thought Brent was a great tutor! He was patient, he knew his concepts, and he wasn't afraid to slow down and explain things in a different way when I didn't feel confident with a certain way of thinking. I would definitely recommend him!!

Ailsa

Perfect! My daughter was very concerned about taking Physics 11 this year, but she wanted to persevere so that she could keep her university options open. Brent has been the ideal tutor: kind, clear and patient. His response time is fantastic and Physics has turned into subject that my daughter is feeling increasingly confident about.

Brent's response

Fiona is a great student. Hard working, curious and engaging. Always a pleasure teaching her!

Sarah

Perfect! Brent is teaching 8 grade math to my daughter.
Already after a few weeks my daughter is more confident and I can see an improvement in the way she approaches math

Brent's response

Kiana (Sarah's daughter) is a fantastic student. She displays genuine curiosity and is not afraid to ask questions about things that confuse her. If she continues with this attitude and work ethic she will improve in no time!

T
Tobyn

Perfect! Explained the topics very well, was friendly and kind.

Brent's response

Tobyn is a quick learner and hard worker! These are qualities I always admire in students as it helps keep lessons lively and engaging. With just a little practice and guidance on newer, more complex topics, Tobyn is bound to do great!

Y
Yasuko

Perfect! My son was refusing to have a tutor as he thought it’s not cool.
We found Brent, my son is very happy to take tutoring from him. Brent is not only smart and great at math, he also connect with teenager, know what teaching methods works for teen, how to explain to teen That way that teen does not lose focus and interest in math.
We are so happy to found him!

Brent's response

Kai is a fantastic student! He showed fantastic engagement throughout the lesson and is quick to learn and recognize patterns. The next step for Kai would be to build an intuition about algebra and how to go about solving problems. All in all, he made the tutoring experience awesome!

E
Eugene

Perfect! Great teaching and communication skills! Kind, polite and punctual. Easy explanation and Good with kids!

Brent's response

Hannah is great student! She is very quick and adept at math solving math problems. One area that we are actively working on improving is her ability to solve word problems. Once the word problems are converted to numbers, she has no problem completing the problems perfectly well. After working through these, I'm sure she'll do fantastically!

Perfect! Brent is a conscientious teacher and tutor. His diplomacy and patience with a student allows them to excel to their full potential. Brent is also very current with teaching methods and the modern course curriculum. Brent accommodates the student's schedule in a timely matter which is important for exams and assignments. His communication follow-up is excellent.

I would highly recommend Brent for university students/high school taking physics!

Brent's response

Jackson is a fantastic student! He is extremely polite and keen to learn and improve. Teaching him is truly a pleasure!

Brent is great at establishing a comfortable environment and relationship with his student before diving into the subject. He’s great at breaking down big, and often “scary” subjects and makes sure to stop and check in after each big lesson.

J
Joseph

A classmate of Brent's. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him because he is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but has a great skill in being able to teach others. Brent is very good at explaining things, taking the time to make sure the concept is properly gotten across and understood rather than rushing it.

An experience we had together was a 8 and a half hour hike. Although not in the same situation as a tutoring session, the way that he perservered and kept the group motivated shows qualities that I would look for in a great teacher.
