I’m Rob, an easygoing and friendly but effective tutor serving the Sacramento area and beyond. I specialize in test prep, but tutor a number of other subjects, including English, math, German, and philosophy. What really makes tutoring worthwhile for me is taking a vested interest in students’ success!

I began tutoring 8 years ago in 2011 as a senior double major at Azusa Pacific University (APU; 3.86 GPA, magna cum laude; Outstanding Senior Award in Philosophy). As an undergraduate, I worked in APU’s Tutoring Center and tutored mainly philosophy and writing, but some college algebra (never received lower than an A in college math classes, including calculus). I have been tutoring in one capacity or another since then. In my PhD program at Baylor University (3.87 GPA; 93+ percentile in writing and verbal sections of GRE), where I also received a master’s degree in analytic philosophy, I have worked as a teaching and research assistant. I gained plenty of teaching/tutoring experience while serving as an auxiliary instructor, teaching several independent honor’s colloquia, and offering writing assistance both independently and through group writing workshops. My own writing has resulted in presentations at many academic conferences as well as several peer-reviewed journal publications.

In 2017 I took an extended sabbatical from my PhD program and turned to tutoring full time. (I have since returned to part-time doctoral work in philosophy through Baylor U. with an intended completion date of 2022.) Since then, I have tutored a variety of ages in a variety of subjects, including math, English, German, study skills, and SAT/ACT test prep, both in person as well as online through tutoring platforms like Varsity Tutors. As of late, I have focused on test prep, but I enjoy tutoring other subjects as well! Besides working with students 1-on-1, I've also taught after-school SAT classes at local high schools, most recently for the Sacramento Criminal Justice Academy.

I have tutoring experience in math dating back to 2011. I now specialize in SAT and ACT tutoring and have mastered the math content for both tests as well as that of Integrated Math I-III, including its geometry portions. Exposure to all sorts of problems on the SAT/ACT gives me insight into helpful shortcuts and strategies. While I try to stay consistent with the way concepts are taught in class, I always provide students with the shortest and most effective ways to solve problems and understand concepts. Finally, my philosophy and logic background (M.A. in philosophy and Ph.D. in progress) make me well-positioned to instill intangible skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving, which are especially useful in geometry.

I have excelled in graduate-level logic courses in my PhD program (Baylor U.) in philosophy. At Baylor, I have also lectured and taught colloquia to undergraduate logic students. Finally, I have tutored logic since 2017 through various online tutoring platforms.

Helpful and patient

It was helpful for my daughter to have someone to work with, and who could guide her in the right direction while studying for the SAT. Rob was patient and very knowledgeable, both great qualities for a tutor!
