A few testimonials from past clients:

The tutoring I received at Cognitive Advantage was instrumental in allowing me to pass my neurology board certification examination. For the first time, I learned a systematic, step wise approach to multiple-choice questions. Brandon’s teaching style was both sophisticated and fun. I would recommend Cognitive Advantage most highly.”  ~ an MD studying for the neurology board exam


Hi Brandon, I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much progress we’ve seen in Shane since working with you. First of all, he loves working with you! When we took the summer break he kept asking us when he could start again. How many kids ask for more studying? You have helped him with organization and his confidence has shot way up. Your gentle, disciplined ways are just what Shane needed to improve his study. You seem to be able to bring out Shane’s strengths and that is exactly what we were looking for. We want Shane to feel empowered and you are doing it! From one parent to another, thank you! Sincerely, Dr. J”


As a scholar athlete at Bellarmine, my son’s curriculum was intense and his time was limited. Cognitive Advantage developed a flexible and focused approach to his math tutoring that fit into my son’s school and ice hockey travel schedule. With the help of Cognitive Advantage, he graduated with a 4.0 and the confidence to do well in college. Thank you Cognitive Advantage!” ~ Mother of a Bellarmine College Prep graduate


Brandon is an amazing tutor! He tutored me on organic chemistry. Every session was stress free and enjoyable. I learned so much from my time with Brandon, it helped me in my class and in my understanding of the subject. I will definitely seek out Brandon as a tutor in the future.”  ~ M. G., clinical psychology grad student & post-baccalaureate pre-medical student


With your efficient coaching and kind mentorship last September and October, my son has delivered excellent PSAT and SAT I scores very effectively. From his high PSAT scores, he is even cited as a National Merit Scholar. I really, really appreciate your professional tutoring that helped my son to prepare for the PSAT/SAT with ease and bring out his potential. We’ll definitely come back to you for his SAT IIs and for the younger sibling’s prep.” – Mother of a Palo Alto High School Junior


Brandon is an excellent tutor.  He is professional, extremely knowledgeable and intelligent, energetic, reliable, positive, and supportive.  I was able to earn an A in an accelerated college Chemistry class (second of the series… which is recognized as the most difficult of the three), taken during the summer thanks to Brandon’s tutoring.  He is very motivated to help his students succeed and demonstrates this in his enthusiasm, patience, and creative ability to make confusing concepts clear.  My favorite part of working with Brandon was when I would come to him feeling “lost” and stressed and leave understanding the material.  Brandon is unique in that he really cares about student’s success and victory on tests.  Thank you Brandon!  As a young woman, finding a tutor that makes you feel comfortable is not always easy.  I recommend Brandon!” – T. P., post-baccalaureate pre-physical therapy student.
