Bob is doing a great job assessing and addressing my daughters weak points in AP chemistry. He is focused on the finer points of the subject as well as her method and process for studying. This will help not only in AP chemistry, but future AP classes as well.

I asked my daughter to compare Bob to her teacher - she was quick to reply "Dad, there is no comparison. Bob's ability to convey complex topics far exceeds that of my AP teacher."
Before asking Bob to tutor my daughter I read all his reviews. They were all glowing. I have to add now that after several months I can only say the same. Bob is not only deeply knowledgeable about the subject matter, he is just as deeply compassionate about and caring for his students. My daughter has made tremendous strides since she began working with Bob. She is a very bright girl, but like many she was intimidated by math. Bob took that away. He didn't just give her knowledge, he gave her confidence; and that confidence has brought shining results.
My 15 year old son had tried other Chemistry tutors, but to no avail- none were able to explain the subject matter in a way that was helpful- after meeting Bob for the first time my son was transformed- he was so relieved because Bob was able to teach him the concepts nobody else seemed able to- he looks forward to Bob's visits and has a new outlook with regard to Chemistry- he had given up hope, but now views the subject as something he can manage- his grades have improved and his new, more positive attitude is amazing-
In addition, Bob is reliable and easily reachable- not only is he reachable, but he reaches out to you periodically to see if you have any questions or concerns-
He is a bit pricier than other tutors, but you see why as soon as you meet him...
Bob knows a lot about many different subjects! He helped me with both biology and geometry and knew all about both of them. He is also very patient and helped me a lot with preparing for my midterm exams.
I was barely passing the class at first, but thanks to him, I brought my grade up by 20 points.
Bob is truly an Organic Chemistry Master. He made the once daunting material of Organic Chemistry, exciting and interesting! Bob improved my understanding of the material with his real life applications. Most importantly, Bob is beyond patient and supportive. Bob, is punctual, a great communicator, and very professional. It is great to be tutored by someone who truly loves what he does-teach. I cannot wait to begin Organic Chemistry II with him!
Bob has been a wonderful tutor for our daughter during her struggles with her AP Chemistry course. He has assisted her with all aspects of the class from textbook problems to laboratory reports. He also has valuable supplementary PowerPoints of his own that reteach lessons in an understandable way. He has been very willing to work with our schedule for time and location of tutoring sessions as well. We are happy to report our daughter has remained on the honor roll thanks in large part to Bob's support.
Working with Bob to better understand organic chemistry has truly been a gift. During lecture I felt that I was having complex information thrown at me and I was told to just run with it. Not only did I find this stressful, but I was also not properly learning the material. This stress made me want to give up. However, once I started working with Bob I rediscovered why I became so interested in the sciences in the first place. I was finally learning and understanding the information that was presented to me. What makes Bob such a spectacular tutor is that he has a wide variety of experiences in the sciences. He knows the material well, and as a result, he knows how to explain it properly. Bob is also extremely accessible. Whenever I have difficulty with a question he will respond to me usually within the first eighteen hours with a written out step by step solution to the problem. It is noticeable that Bob wishes for his students to succeed and he is very supportive and encouraging. Every time I leave tutoring I feel excited and motivated to tackle the material ahead of me. If you have any doubts or concerns about taking organic chemistry at Rutgers or any other university I highly recommend you work with Bob. It's a difficult course, but with time and dedication, you'll be able to succeed.
Bob has done an excellent job tutoring my daughter in Chemistry and Math. He takes the time to address any questions she has in detail and also asks her questions to ensure she understands the material. His teaching approach has not only increased my daughter's ability to learn the subject matter quickly, but retain the information as well. My daughter looks forward to her tutoring sessions. I am extremely happy with the results and would recommend Bob to any parent looking for a tutor for their child.
Bob has been a great help in helping my daughter discern the most critical information as she studies each week! This is much appreciated with her heavy study load and varsity athlete status!
If your a student at Rutgers and you have heard about organic chemistry being a nightmare, know that you heard right! It is unfortunate that the classes are so large and that office hours become so packed that you can't even ask your professor any questions you may have. Than there is the tutoring they offer on campus, but because your class is over 500 students, the academic support centers become packed and turn into a waste of time.
If you are looking to actually understand organic chemistry and become LESS stressed, then Bob is the tutor for you. He is so kind, and encourages you to keep trying while learning the mechanisms of organic chemistry. Tutors can be costly but you are truly paying for what you get. Again Bob knows the material and is so familiar with the Rutgers chemistry curriculum and exams, you will be sure to pass. I know that when I move on to take bio chemistry next semester, I will have the best foundation possible with Bob as my tutor.
It takes far more than subject matter knowledge to help a child; it takes compassion, flexibility, and the ability to inspire. This is Bob. A Superstar. Thank you.
Bob's lesson helped my child to great extent. He was available in our convenient time and explained in detail even in his first lesson.
Bob tutored both my high school teenagers in AP chemistry. His explanations were very clear and understandable. He made sure that the kids understood each topic thoroughly before moving on to the next session. He would do this with an interactive approach and giving them pop quizzes in the lessons to make sure they really understood the concepts. The kids also found him to be a fun and pleasant person. I strongly recommend him.
Bob has been tutoring my college attending son, preparing him for his next semester Organic Chemistry. Besides being a subject matter expert, he is very good at explaining complex concepts in an interesting manner. He challenges and pushes my son to go the extra mile. He is very accommodating and flexible with the scheduling. We are very fortunate to have found him.
I contacted Bob when my son was struggling with Honors Chemistry 2. Bob contacted me the same day and was extremely helpful in finding time to work with my son at such short notice. He spent time helping my son understand key concepts in Chemistry that were confusing before, and after a few hours of explanation, my son is going into his Chemistry final confident he will do well. I strongly recommend Bob as a tutor.
Bob came to us to help my son with algebra 2. He is patient, kind, respectful, and knowledgeable. My son really enjoyed every weekly session. He was able to explain all concepts and was well prepared each week. We will continue to use Bob for all of our children as needed.
Bob is patient, thorough and very knowledgeable. He has helped my daughter who is struggling in her class. She is very grateful for his help and feels much more confident after a lesson. He is also very responsive and goes out of his way to work with your schedule.
Bob is patient, very knowledgeable in his subjects, and is able to explain it in a way that my daughter gets. He also challenges her during the lessons so that they both are sure that she understands the material. Above all, my daughter is much more relaxed now that she has the additional support she needs.
Bob has been excellent with our daughter in helping her with her freshman algebra. He is patient and positive and has helped her grades, study habits, and confidence. Because he has such a strong science and math background we look forward to his assistance in those subjects for years to come. I would recommend Bob highly.
When it became apparent that my son was not going to be able to figure out his AP Chemistry summer assignment on his own, we contacted Bob. He was very flexible in finding tutoring times that fit in our schedule and he was great at helping my son complete the assignment ahead of time. He even provided some additional help to some problems on his own time via email. Now my son will start his AP Chemistry class this year with much more confidence.
Although my son loves science, AP Chemistry was the class that threatened to change that. He worked hard, achieved great grades on labs and homework but could not excel on the exams which were 78% of his grade. Then we found Bob! Bob is very pleasant and easy to deal with. He responded promptly to our requests and was very flexible in scheduling sessions. He connected very well with my son and was able to reach him in a way that I could not. He reviews the material using power point slides and providing additional examples to drive a concept home. He assigns homework and pushes his students to go the extra mile. Slowly, we saw some better grades on those exams. Ultimately, though, we were thrilled to see our son receive a "4" on the AP exam. Bob was instrumental in our son getting this grade. We are so grateful for all the encouragement he gave our son. We just wish we had found him earlier in the school year!
I searched for a chemistry tutor for my daughter for few weeks but could not find anyone who is passionate about teaching, experience with students from different school districts, and expert in Chemistry. This search ended when I came across Bob. He is one of the best tutors I have known. He exceeded my expectations by caring about the outcome of my daughter's performance in her class. He is very easy to contact, via email or phone. I highly recommend him.
Bob helped my HS son for chemistry final. He covered the necessary material thoroughly and really gave him confidence by building on the skills he did have. All of this was requested by us at the last minute but Bob was able to rearrange his schedule to work with my son. Great tutor that we will go to again.
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.
