ASVAB

I have taken the ASVAB myself, and I achieved a very high score.

I have a knowledge base that is sufficient for taking, and doing well in, the ASVAB.

As an English instructor, I can certainly help with the English sections, but I am also educated in science and math and have a great interest in electronics.

I can definitely help students develop successful ways to confront the many facets of the ASVAB test.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is an essential foundation for higher levels of math. I have tutored students in elementary math for over six years. There are several approaches to many problems, and I work with the students in order to find the best approach for the individual. I am patient and can explain things in a way that makes math less intimidating than it used to be for students.

Great Patience — Robert is very professional. He has solid background in English writing.
