From a parent's perspective, Bob has been an absolute pleasure to work with in scheduling and discussing my child's needs. He is very responsive and accommodating.
My child is feeling so much more secure in math and really enjoys working with Bob. He's been very helpful in working on current needs and working towards filling in the gaps from past classes.
Overall, we are thrilled to have found him.
My daughter was struggling with Geometry and since she has been working with Bob- she has improved remarkably. This is reflective in her grades but also a better conceptual understanding. We are extremely pleased with Bob. Additionally, he is patient and will allot as much time as necessary to cover the material.
Bob has really helped my son understand Algebra 2. He has been patient and helps him work through the problems.
Our first experience was a positive one. Bob was very patient and very helpful and he helped build up our daughter's confidence. She had an instant connection with him and she understood the concept much better once Bob explained it to her. I feel confident that she will do much better in geometry with Bob's help.
We realized that our son needs help with math as his grade dropped to consistent C. After a few sessions first results showed up, and recently our son got his first A on math test. And he is much more motivated now. Thanks!!
Bob is great! He is skilled, thorough, and patient.
My eighth grader needed some last minute help to prepare for finals. Bob is knowledgeable, accommodating, and quickly developed a rapport with my child. He was able to bring him up to a point where we all were confident of the outcome. Thanks Bob!
My son has been working with Bob on SAT math prep. Bob is amazing! He is patient, kind, and my son actually looks forward to the lessons! My son has told me that Bob has helped him tremendously and feels that his lessons will definitely help him on his upcoming SAT test. I really recommend him for anyone needing help with math or SAT prep.
Bob has my highest recommendation . Bob started working with my son when he needed confidence as well as help with his math. Bob provided the help as well as helping build his confidence. My son went from a C to an A. After working with Bob, my son also raised his SAT score more than 500 points. Bob definitely has my highest recommendation.
Our son was having a hard time in his trig and geometry class. Bob had him on the right path within a few meetings, and his grade began to climb immediately. They continued to meet throughout the rest of the course on a less frequent basis, and my son ended the term with success. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with Bob. It was indeed a pleasure!
We are very pleased with the tutoring services offered by Bob P! Math is a tough subject for our daughter and Bob always came up with creative ways to explain things to her in a way she could understand. We look forward to utilizing his knowledge and skills next semester for geometry!
Wonderful, patient and able to give real world examples to help my son better understand why he needs to learn geometry and hopefully retain it!
He was very patient with me and I really enjoyed working with him. He was able to explain difficult concepts in a much easier way. We connected right away. He is very professional yet friendly. I feel confident with what I learned. Thank you Bob.
Bob is a excellent tutor. He has gone above and beyond to help my son get update in his geometry class. He comes highly recommended by this family. Thanks Bob!!
Bob was wonderful and really helped my child grasp the concepts better in his first visit. Thank you Bob. We will use you in the future.
We have enjoyed the benefits seen in our son's attitude and math scores since Bob has been tutoring him. Thanks for your assistance.
I would like to first state that Bob was on time, which meant he arrived early. My son appeared to be comfortable and understood the assignment a bit more. My son has taken geometry in the past two years so understanding what Bob is saying is an accomplishment. Bob speaks his language! Bob was patient and understanding, which meant he did not mind explaining himself more than once. My husband and I are very fortunate to find someone that we feel comfortable with and our dog, Dale, loved Bob as well, which is the one sign we look for when a person enters our home. Dale actually slept in the room while Bob and our son were going over the assignment. We are definitely keeping Bob in our lives!
Our twelve year old has gone from a C average to a high B average in two weeks. One month later and he is on his way to an A average in Pre-Algebra. He is more confident and no longer dreads going to Math Class. Without Bob's tutoring our son would not have been able to improve. We highly recommend Bob.
SAT math/Critical thinking is very hard for my daughter to understand, but Bob has taken the time to explain everything and he is very patient. With his help I feel my daughter will do much better in the SAT this time around. She already feels very confident and seems to understand a lot more than when she first started. Will recommend him to anyone!
He was prompt and assisted me in understanding the problems. He was patient in his explanations and allowed me time to digest the work. He is an excellent tutor.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
