Hello, my name is Brent. I spent over 12 years teaching math at universities, and although I left academia for industry about two years ago, I miss talking with students about math, so I decided to start tutoring. As a student I always wanted to know why things worked they way they do, and didn't want to just memorize how to do something without understanding it. I take the same approach with teaching and tutoring, and always try to explain the underlying concepts, from as many different angl...

Great guy, willing to help however necessary. Didn't end up going through with the session (my choice), but he certainly did his part preparing and communicating.

Brent was exceptional and patient with explaining the fundamentals of probability in a relatable way. He assisted me with working through some practice problems that aligned with the principles taught.

My son did not realize the insanely difficult task when he started a summer college course at the end of July. It was calculus 2. A difficult 3 month course compressed into 13 days. We had a family friend who began to help on day 1 but on day 2 we quickly realized he was over his head. A day later we discovered Wyzant and found Brent who saved the day. He was patient and flexible and most importantly knew his stuff. He made the insanity - sane. He made the impossible - possible. My son learned the material and got through the class successfully. Could not have done it without Brent.

I worked with Brent several times over the course of my Applied Linear Algebra class and he was wonderful! He knew what he was talking about and managed to make a complicated math concept easy for me to understand. I appreciate his patience with me and appreciate his help over the last 8 weeks. I will be utilizing his math knowledge again.

Brent was able to go over the practice exam study guide for statistics. Honestly, I cannot explain it -- Brent explains descriptive statistics in a more simplified format I could actually remember, and I have never felt so confident during a statistics exam before! Brent, Thank you.

Brent was very patient with me and broke down the items so I could understand it. He was kind and utilized my time wisely. I will definitely be booking another appointment with him.

I've worked with a few tutors in my short time on Wyzant and I've decided to stick with Brent. He's very knowledgeable, has adapted to my University's homework system (Quest) to help me understand how to manipulate answers both for what they are looking for, but to build my basic math skills as well. I feel much more confident in Calculus knowing he has my back and is available to help me understand theory, approach, and basic math.

Brent is clear and concise and uses other applications as well for illustrative purposes. Good handle on the material and good communication skills. I need 160 characters total so here's some more.

"I would recommend Brent K, seven days a week. He is extremely bright, patient, and punctual! couldn't be happier with the help he has provided for me. Brent K, was very encouraging and helped me through the entire process step by step!"
- Daniel C. from Gilbert, AZ
Five star from the moment we began talking. Listened to my needs, evaluated what I was looking for, and made sure he was the right fit for my tutoring. We will continue to work together, as I believe it is a good fit. Highly recommend this guy.
- Josh E. from Phoenix, AZ
Brent tutored on Vector Calculus (Calc 3). He asked in advance which specific chapter/topic we needed help in, to adequately prepare, and was knowledgeable on this advanced subject. He was quick to respond to messages and flexible with meeting times. Would recommend for math.
