All of Robert’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Robert’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

Algebra is the start of solving for the unknown. If at any point in time you have solved the mathmatical problem 2+2=, you have done algebra. If you look at it from this standpoint, you now have a foundation to build from. My purpose is to provide you assistance for the short term so that you are capable of standing on your own two feet in solving algebraic equations. I graduated from MIT and have been applying these concepts for the course of my career. I enjoy helping students achieve their academic goals and becoming successful. I would like to provide the same opportunity for you.

Algebra 2

Baseball

Played baseball thru college at the positions of pitcher and 1st base. Excellent pitching coach and batting coach.

Calculus

Calculus, in summary, is the language that links distance with velocity and acceleration, circumference with area and volume, and mass with momentum and kinetic energy. My philosophy is that once you understand the purpose of calculus, you will be more in tune with getting the individual concepts that it requires you to learn in differentiation and integration. That is what I can bring to the table. I have engineered spacecraft, and launch vehicles and aircraft. Calculus directly applies to orbit mechanics in space travel as well as aerodynamics for aircraft.

Chess

Used to play national tournaments with my highest rating being 1792.

Fitness

Involved in fitness for over 20 years to include weightlifting, swimming, racquetball, and sport activities. Was formerly a certified step aerobics instructor from the AIAA.

Geometry

Geometry is the skeletal system for all of mathematics. For any student that has the aspiration to study in the fields of science and mathematics, a thorough understanding of geometry is vital in order to master all advanced subjects from calculus, differential equations, and any of the engineering disciplines. Geometry serves as the artistic picture of math and my purpose is to help students afford the opportunity to see the math in their heads as they are solving complex problems.

Mechanical Engineering

I worked as an engineer in the aerospace industry for over 20 years and I majored in Aeronautical Engineering at MIT which is Mechanical Engineering specialized for aviation and space. Very familiar with the engineering acquisition cycle and have served as a manager for each part of the acquisition cycle from concept study to test and evaluation to production and logistics.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is the start of math beyond just counting your change. This is the base foundation of all mathematical concepts to come. Understanding the foundation of math at this level is critical to being able to master all of the integrated concepts from Algebra to Calculus and Differential Equations. This class is the start of your mathematical resume.

Precalculus

Calculus, in summary, is the language that links distance with velocity and acceleration, circumference with area and volume, and mass with momentum and kinetic energy. Pre-calculus exposes you to the principles that lead up to the purpose of calculus. My philosophy is that once you understand the purpose of calculus, you will be more in tune with getting the individual concepts that it requires you to learn in differentiation and integration. That is what I can bring to the table. I have engineered spacecraft, and launch vehicles and aircraft. Calculus directly applies to orbit mechanics in space travel as well as aerodynamics for aircraft.

Approved Subjects

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
