About Robert


Bio

My academic training was in engineering: I received my master's and doctoral degrees in metallurgy and materials science from Columbia University, and my bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. In graduate school I worked for several years as a teaching assistant, which included some lecturing, grading, and tutoring.

My academic training was in engineering: I received my master's and doctoral degrees in metallurgy and materials science from Columbia University, and my bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. In graduate school I worked for several years as a teaching assistant, which included some lecturing, grading, and tutoring.

After graduating, I worked as an engineer and accrued more than 20 years of experience in various segments of the technology industry, including aerospace, consumer electronics, and electrical and electronic manufacturing. I am qualified to teach physical science and basic engineering science courses, such as general chemistry and physics, as well as basic mathematics.

I have completed extensive coursework in related and relevant engineering science subjects (e.g., fluid and solid mechanics, thermodynamics, metallurgy/materials science).

I would be very happy to work with you in the study of any of these topics. Thank you for your consideration.

Martial Arts

I have been practicing Japanese martial arts (karate & aikido) for nearly 30 years. I hold the ranks of nidan (2nd-degree black belt) in shotokan karate and sandan (3rd-degree black belt) in aikido. My current affiliations are with Shotokan Karate of America and Aikido Kokikai International. I have actively taught both arts since 2011, including a period where I was leading a small aikido dojo.

Extremely knowledgeable and goes the extra mile.

My son has now had several sessions with Robert. We couldn't be happier. My son was very frustrated with the online class format and was ready to quit. However, Robert has tutored him every week since and offered his expertise in an easy to understand way. Robert is very organized, great at communicating, puts a lot of time into his sessions, and is extrememly knowledgeable. We couldn't be happier and we highly reccommend Robert.

Excellent teacher- Materials Science

Robert is meticulous and extremely knowledgeable in a variety of disciplines. He is efficient and yet still explains concepts thoroughly. He is dedicated and mindful of finding the best way of arriving at a solution. He even contacted me after one of our sessions after pursuing an even better way of doing one of the problems. I very much appreciate his expertise. Thank you, Robert!

A COMPLETE LIFESAVER

Let me start off by saying I have never ever in my life understood chemistry--until working with Robert. He is patient, diligent, and completely willing to break down any confusion I may be having. I will work with him for as long as it takes! Book him now!

Super knowledgeable tutor

He helped me understand thermochemical information I am learning for the first time in general chemistry 2 which I was really struggling to understand. He also made sure I understand how to get from point a to point b and answered any questions I had very well.

Great tutor and very knowledgeable

Robert is a subject matter expert and he is very thorough in explaining concepts. I have learned a lot from his chemical engineering lessons. He should definitely be your go to tutor.

Dominique, 6 lessons with Robert

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Robert tutored my daughter AP Physics this semester and she thinks he does a better job than her teacher! He even spent extra time off line after session to discuss problems with her. Great tutor, strongly recommend!

Maggie, 16 lessons with Robert

Best Math/Physics tutor!

Robert is one of the smartest people I know. He can solve basically any problem out there. Robert helped me for 2 years in subjects in Physics, Math, Excel, and reports. I will ask him for help in solid state later down the road. Highly recommend him as a tutor.
