About this tutor

After more than 25 years tutoring all math subjects, from grade school to grad school, I have decided to specialize in tutoring calculus.

Calculus, at all its levels, is a difficult and tricky subject.  I know exactly where the pitfalls are.  I enjoy helping the struggling student to see what is really going on.  Calculus is not so difficult after all, when what seems tricky is cleared up.

I have a degree in math from MIT and I have a Ph.D. in physics from the Weizman Institute of Science.

 My tutoring website is

 Some of my scientific papers in auditory perception and neuroscience are listed at

 My current work in neuroscience can be found in the website

I enjoy helping struggling and sometimes despairing students transform calculus from a pain-in-the-neck to a subject they can master, enjoy, and appreciate.

    Disclaimer: He is the first tutor I've ever had and as a consequence, has raised my standards for tutors as a whole. Mr. Robinson will not only help you understand mathematics, he'll make you see its beauty too. After the very first meeting with Mr. Robinson I understood a couple of concepts that I had never even thought of, but that were essential for the understanding of Calculus 2. Thereafter, every meeting included that eureka moment and was accompained by a big sense of accomplishment. He will take the time to make sure that you understand the big picture by explaining as many times as needed and each time using a different, more simplistic approach as well as keeping in touch outside of meeting hours. Additionally, he will inadvertently encourage you to become a better student, a lesson that will definetly come in handy for my next classes.

    He was able to break down complicated ideas into concepts my son already understood. He was also very patient when my son felt confused and took the time to explain concepts he may have trouble with that would help with more the more difficult concepts of calc 2

    He has patients with teen age kids and is great at breaking it down to the basics to confirm the child understands.
