Physics is all around us, embedded in everything we do. Learning physics is learning about our world and how it works. My approach is conceptual in nature. I use practical, real world examples to bring light to and understanding of physics concepts. While physics does have math in it (since the universe uses math to explain itself to us), math is only a tool to be used in forming our understanding. I am certified to teach high school physics by the State of Connecticut and have taught physics to high school and college students for over six years.

Great Laid Back Tutor — Robert is an excellent tutor. He is laid back with regards to tutoring and allows my daughter to take the lead in what she needs to accomplish. This approach has worked well with my daughter who has some test anxiety. Since seeing Robert, both her pre-calculus teacher and I have seen an increase in her confidence as well as a large increase in her test grades. I highly recommend Robert S. ...
