Rating and Reviews
Was not familiar with my level of organic chemistry.
From the moment we met Bruce, he was very organized and had an ability to grab the attention of our son before moving on to the next step. Our son felt comfortable with Bruce from day one and looks forward to seeing him for his weekly tutoring. We feel fortunate to have found Bruce and have him help our son reach his goal in writing. Thank you, Bruce
"Extremely competent and knowledgeable."
Professor B.A.M. is a phenomenal tutor. He has a proficient ability to explain difficult topics in a rudimentary and basic fashion if need be. This enabled me to absorb and understand my complex course material and obtain that "Aha" moment. He has helped me with my computer science course immensely. Without his guidance I don't know where I would be in the class. I was on the verge of dropping the course before I came across professor B.A.M. I plan to continue to retain his services for his invaluable guidance. If there is a better tutor out there, he or she would be hard to find!!
"Tremendous wealth of knowledge; Terrific person to deal with; Very professsional; Exceptional service"
I have nothing but positive things to say about 'Professor BAM'. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable about so many different subjects, but he was a pleasure to deal with and always very accommodating. My daughter was tutored in Trigonometry and the amount of patience and clarity that Professor BAM taught with was unmatched. (I wish I would have found him when my daughter was having trouble in Algebra.) Thank you for your excellent service.
Kind, understanding, patient. Good knowledge of subject..
Great person, pleasure to speak with him through the phone.
"One of the Best tutors on this site!"
Prof. BAM has been helping to improved the TutorZ service. During the work with him came to appreciate his expert advice, his professionalism, his concise yet personal way of communication. BAM is an expert in programming, English, and political thought. I only can imagine he is that good many other subjects as well. BAM relates well to me and the other team members and think he could do exactly the same with you and your child. I strongly recommend Professor BAM.
Prof BAM is absolutely amazing. In 3 weeks, brought my son's regents test score up 14 points. He's professional and extremely good at what he does. He shows his students how to break the test questions down to be more successful. He always works with our busy schedule. Highly recommend.
"Flexible with quality"
I have had good experience with Bruce. He has a long quality track record with us and is flexible in working with the student.
(Bruce is available for online tutoring)
