About this tutor

I make every effort to provide a truly extraordinary learning experience for every student I work with. I fully believe that empowering students to learn well in their mathematics courses will help them be successful in any subject.

Math can be frustrating! I love breaking down complicated problems and helping students to discover a sequence of simple solutions to any math problem.

    Robert really helped my child understand the material for her class. He never got frustrated and always encouraged her to do her best.

    Robert helped me with my calculus classes over several semesters. I didn't really know what I was doing in my class, but he was really good about figuring out what I wasn't understanding. He's the only person I would ask for math help. I definitely recommend working with him!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My primary goal is to find the root of the problem. Very rarely is the student's real issue with the specific problem, but with a misunderstanding of a more central concept. I work with students to solidify central ideas, to build problem-solving skills, and to facilitate a more general and natural intuition for mathematics.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics and I have been tutoring math subjects in some capacity since 2006. The primary subjects that I have helped with are Calculus, Geometry, Algebra (high school and college), and Differential Equations, and I have worked with students in 300-400 level college courses, such as Linear Algebra, Combinatorics, Abstract Algebra, and Real Analysis.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard rates are $50 for in-person sessions and $40 for online sessions. Prices vary for more specialized coursework and during midterm and final exam review seasons.


How did you get started teaching?

I first started tutoring as part of the National Honor Society in high school and continued as part part-time work through my University.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students ages 12 to 60, and I have some experience with differently-abled students.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A former student recently contacted me and told me that they didn't even like math before our tutoring sessions and that they had recently decided to change their major to Mathematics. It really made me smile.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Different people work differently together, so it's definitely important to find someone who works well with you and is able to accommodate your specific areas of interest.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

These are a few questions that every student should ask themselves when solving a problem:

What have I tried? What haven't I tried?

What new concepts have been introduced recently in class? How might these concepts connect to the problem?

What are the big ideas of the class I'm taking? How does this problem relate to the grand design of the course?
