About Robert


Bio

I have a Harvard B.A. and U.C. Berkeley Ph.D. in Chemistry.
I have over 30 years experience teaching chemistry: high school AP chem and college freshman chem.
My first teaching position was at Harvard in 1987.

I believe that every student I teach is a unique learner. When I tutor, I focus on YOUR learning style, YOUR knowledge, and YOUR problem solving skills.

I have a Harvard B.A. and U.C. Berkeley Ph.D. in Chemistry.
I have over 30 years experience teaching chemistry: high school AP chem and college freshman chem.
My first teaching position was at Harvard in 1987.

I believe that every student I teach is a unique learner. When I tutor, I focus on YOUR learning style, YOUR knowledge, and YOUR problem solving skills.

I do not lecture at students. Students learn best by doing: solving problems, asking questions, explaining answers, teaching each other, working together.

Learning chem is messy. I make sure YOU feel comfortable making mistakes in front of me. I don't believe there are any "dumb" questions. I help YOU understand the words, math, and pictures of chemistry. I teach you how to study chem from YOUR class notes, textbooks, and labs. We find the best learning websites and videos like: The E-textbook from UC Davis, Quizlet, and Khan Academy.

We set up YOUR own chem study program. We create YOUR homework schedule for evenings/weekends. We define YOUR goal for the exams, final exam, AP exam, and SAT exam. I help YOU work hard, concentrate, and motivate YOURself EVERY WEEK.

Robert is Fantastic

He helped me rais my grade in class a significant amount and prepared me for the AP test. I highly recommend Robbert because he is very knowledgeable, he is a good teacher, and he is easy to work with. Thank you Rob.

AP Chemistry

Great lesson as always, we talked about some general chemistry topics to prepare for future tests such as finding the limiting reactant of a chemical reaction, solubility, equilibrium and the born haber cycle.

Thanks Robert!

Robert helped our daughter understand some of the basic building blocks of chemistry. We look forward to booking sessions over the next few months, because we know her best learning will happen with familiarity and regularity.

Knowledgeable and great tutor

Robert is a great tutor and is patient when it comes to helping the student understand the concept. Robert taught my daughter AP Chemistry. Robert is adept in the subject and his approach in making the student find the answers for problems, through understanding the concepts are very helpful. I would recommend Robert for his tutoring.
