Troy tutored our grandson for just six hours over two weeks, and helped him substantially in learning how to learn, and how to enjoy what he’s learning; huge steps toward a successful transition into college next year. Not only did his grades in his math class improve, but more importantly his self-confidence and his ability to tackle not only math problems, but all kinds of problems, notably improved. He clearly matured as a learner. During each of his sessions and in his preparations for these, our grandson learned to concentrate--to think hard and intentionally; to communicate with and respond to a caring teacher; and to use new skills to incorporate new knowledge. Both he and we are grateful to Troy to guiding him toward having a more mature, optimistic, and confident outlook about all he’ll be learning, all his life.

Troy came highly recommended as a math tutor and we have not been disappointed! My daughter was struggling in her AP Calculus class and after meeting with Troy just a handful of times her grade went up by 13 points. Troy is professional, punctual, flexible with meeting times, patient, and, according to my daughter explains concepts very well. He restored my daughter’s self-confidence when it comes to math, which, to me is the biggest win!

Mr. Troy has helped me with my problem solving skills and memorizing math concepts in Pre-Calculus. My grades have improve a whole letter grade and I owe it to him. He is very available, flexible, and punctual.

Worked with my daughter most of her high school years and explained so much. Highly recommend. Calm, smart and good demeanor for tutoring. He is very approachable and easy to work with.
Troy is an amazing tutor, our son age 15 is doing so much better with his support, and the stress levels have gone way down when there is an upcoming math test."
After taking my first SAT, I realized that I needed to improve my math score. I worked with Troy once or twice a week for just over a month. When I took the SAT for the second time, I felt prepared and confident and my score reflected that - it increased by 120 points! Because of Troy's help, I now have a better chance of being accepted to the college or university of my choice.
My daughter has been working with Troy since she was in 5th grade and now will be rising 7th grader. My daughter is very shy and Troy broke the ice and made her feel very comfortable and confident in solving math problems. She really enjoys his teaching method and she has had straight A's in math since hiring him. I look forward to many years of working with him and would recommend him to anyone who is need of any additional Math training.
Troy tutored my son during his freshman year of high school. I have used other tutors during his middle school years, but nothing seemed to work. Since we hired Troy to come once a week, I could see the improvement in my son's math confidence and grades.
Troy was always accommodating with his schedule due to my son's other activities. He also came and provided extra tutoring before mid terms and finals. Troy made sure that he was prepared for his test and his grades showed it. It was great to see the smile on my son's face when he aced his math final. Without Troy's help this would not of been possible. When my other son started to slip on his math grade, Troy made himself available to help him also and again got him back on track and improving his grades.
We plan on using Troy again this year for tutoring during their Sophomore year. As a working mom, it is nice to have someone that comes to the house for tutoring, it saves me time and my kids are more comfortable studying in their own home and have access to everything they need.
I would highly recommend having Troy tutor your children.

I can heartily recommend Troy as a math tutor. Both my daughters have been tutored by Troy when each was in the 7th grade (there seems to be something about 7th grade math…). One daughter had been getting low grades (once an F as an interim, with a D as the final grade that term). By the end of the year, she had pulled her final grade up to a B. The other daughter had similar results (she ended up getting an award for significant math improvement). Troy easily connected with both of them. They both gained enormous confidence with math and were pleased to realize that yes, they can actually do math. Now one daughter is off to high school geometry. At the first sign of trouble, we will call Troy to the rescue!
Troy Brengle was highly recommended by our sons previous Math tutor for high school Math. Our son is a rising Sophomore and Troy has tutored him since the start of his Freshman year. We are very pleased with the results and would absolutely recommend Troy to anyone who is looking for a great tutor.
We are to continue with him for the rest of the high school for our son. Troy is fantastic at teaching and his help makes a difference!
