Lincoln Memorial University (Economics)
I am a full-time professional tutor with a great deal of experience in both individual and group atmospheres. My tutor expertise includes math (Pre-K to Calculus), English (concentrating on essay composition, sentence structure, grammar, reading, and language arts), ACT/SAT test preparation, chemistry, economics, and accounting. I also tutor any subject that mainly requires study skills and memorization, such as history, psychology, and biology/anatomy. In addition, I am a study skills/time management coach. My easygoing approach to students’ difficulties along with my study/life skills coaching has helped students achieve unmeasured success. I regularly help students raise their grades by 2 or more letters. Recently, I helped a failing geometry student score an A- on his final and pass the course with a B. While living in California, I was employed by the San Diego Board of Education as a tutor for the AVID program, a group style tutoring initiative to assist high school students with difficulties and increase their motivation to learn. Upon my return to Knoxville, I began tutoring U.T. student athletes as an employee of the University of Tennessee. I also sub for Knox County Schools and a local private elementary school when my schedule permits. I am a devoted husband and step-father, and in my spare time I enjoy swimming, bicycling, reading science fiction novels, and studying advanced calculus.

We received my son's ACT scores this morning, exactly what we were hoping for, a six point jump!!
We really want to thank you for the excellent help you gave to our son in achieving this. Without your excellent tutoring this would not have been possible. With this higher composite score he has obtained a $4000 year scholastic scholarship.
Thank you again
Bob not only tutored my son in AP Calculus this year and helped him pass, but he also helped him raise his Math ACT score by 6 points and reading by 4 points. He always tried to accommodate our hectic and changing schedule and was always on time. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone who is looking for a tutor for themselves or for their child.
My daughter received 5 sessions with Robert and her ACT score went up from 27 to 30. The science portion went up from 22 to 27. He works the entire hour and has great test–taking strategies. He is also great at communicating and always on time. We would highly recommend Robert as a tutor.
This was our last lesson before my daughter takes the ACT. Thanks to Bob, my daughter feels confident and ready to do her best on the exam.
Update: My daughter received her ACT scores and did fantastic!! She exceeded her improvement goal from her previous exam (before meeting Bob). Kudos to Bob!! My daughter was well prepared.
So far, my son has had two lessons with Robert to work on his ACT skills. Robert has been on time and has stayed past his time slot to explain things or schedule another lesson. He is patient and positive with his teaching skills. So far, two thumbs up!!
Bob's been great with my son. We will continue to use him in the future for high school math and for our next ACT!
Update: My son took his EOC yesterday and was able to get an 88 on his test! My son went from not knowing pre-calc to getting a great grade on his end of course test. We attribute that success to Bob's great tutoring!
Our 14 year old son is in the process of transitioning from home school to public high school. Robert worked with him over the past few months to strengthen his math skills (algebra and geometry) to prepare for placement testing.
We are very impressed with Robert's teaching skills and his ability to keep our son focused on learning during the sessions. Our son actually looked forward to his tutoring sessions with Robert.
We were very pleased with the results of our son's placement tests, and Robert's efforts gave him a huge boost in skill level and confidence.
We plan to continue Robert's tutoring during the coming school year.
Bob has every attribute that a parent and a student could hope for. He is incredibly intelligent and is blessed with a special gift for teaching. My son scored a 21 on his ACT exam as a junior. He needs a better score and is scheduled to re-test. With so much on the line, these kids endure an enormous level of stress (as do the parents). Bob made my son feel relaxed and confident with our first 2 hour session. Just a side note to parents: if your child is fortunate enough to be accepted as a student, DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE LIKE I DID!!!! Bob is in HIGH demand, therefore, he has a full schedule. As one of the nicest guys I've ever met, he will go out of his way to accommodate you. He even met with us halfway between our home in Dandridge and his in West Knoxville on a Sunday afternoon. I wish I had known about him much earlier in this process. If my son had had just a little more time with Bob, I feel that we would have been looking at an ACT score above 30. This man just "gets it". If only the best will do, stop your search for a tutor now and send an email to try to get on Bob's schedule. It's not an easy task. Robert C. is THAT GOOD and unquestionably worth the wait and the investment!
Thank you Bob for your work with my daughter. It is working!! She received a 25/25 on her Chemistry quiz last Friday. A first for the entire year! We have only had your services for about 4 weeks and it is paying off wonderfully. Thank you as well for your immediate response to calls, texts and time changes. It could not be easier to work with you.
Tutor Robert uses time effectively and his instructions are as to the point, with remarkable results in the first couple of hours.
Mr. C is a fabulous tutor! My daughter, age 16, has met for tutoring 2x a week study and review for the ACT in October. He is always on time, very professional, and a very smart guy!! I would highly recommend him for any tutoring. Thanks Bob for your expertise!
Was able to work my son into his schedule to provide several sessions of tutoring before a difficult unit's test. I feel like Bob helped get my son on his feet.
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.
Robert C. passed a background check on 5/6/12. The check was ordered by another user through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Robert, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
