« I give Brais my highest recommendation. Brais’s strengths as an academic tutor are many. For those working towards, or within top-tier undergraduate and graduate programs in the humanities, his experience and abilities are exceptional. Whether for assistance with critical writing, for linguistic and international development, or draft reviews for seminars and publication, Brais’s extensive background and personable approach make for highly effective sessions. Your work should improve significantly and rapidly. I was deeply impressed with the amount of advanced material Brais was able to cover, always with great command and insightful analysis. The hours spent on development and critical review with Brais are well worth your time. He will bring out the very best in your own abilities. »

Professor with a PhD from Yale In Literature Makes your Essays and Applications Ivy League Level

Methodology

I normally ask my clients to send me a draft of their work and based on that draft, I am able to improve their original work by clarifying and developing concepts, improving the readability, restructuring the essay, and fact-checking their work. The result is an outstanding piece of writing that is based on your work and that you can use as model for your final submission.

My daughter Sarah hss been workibg with Brais for the past 3 years. She was very stuck in Spanish and workibg with Brais she managed to overcome her initial problems with the grammar. Brais was super patient and now she really enjoys Spanish. Sarah is even asking to do a study abroad in Spain. Brais has been excellent and I cannot encourage enough other families the advantages of working with Brais. Amazing tutor and brilliant person to have around.

My son is an excellent student with great grades but was struggling in his Spanish class at Dwight School (NYC). He started working with Brais in 10th grade and soon his grades started to improve. He went from getting B- to getting As consistently and eventually becoming one of the best students in the class. Mos importantly, Daniel started enjoying Spanish and he has developed a real interest in both Spain and Latin America. Brais's work with him has been exceptional. He is both very knowledgeable as well as caring and also charismatic.

I have collaborated with Brais for a number of years co-developing language materials and syllabi for Spanish language instruction for adults. He is a fantastic teacher with tons of experience, great knowledge, and a sharp eye for students' needs. Having worked in language instruction for decades, I believe Brais is definitely one of the top performers I have met.

Brais is one of my colleagues and I know for a fact that the is a very effective language teacher, not only because of his knowledge of the language and his broad experience in teaching, but because of his vocation for the field.

I really enjoyed working with Brais for my college application essays . I initially came to him to help me with my Personal Statement but he was so helpful that I decided to work with him with my other supplemental essays .Working with Brais gave me the structure and support that I needed to help turn my essays from good to great . If you are in need of someone to guide you through the daunting college essay process and help you tell your story in the most effective way I would highly recommend Brais!
