Roger is a very patient and thorough tutor. He comes prepared and quickly analyzes your material and finds the best way to convey the material to you. He breaks down complex materials into a simplistic way, so you can know exactly what is going on. Definitely recommend.

Today was my son's first lesson with Roger. He will be teaching my son Calculus BC and we are looking forward to working with him. He seems very knowledgeable and patient!

Roger is a great teacher, and very patient and knowledgable. He has helped me become more confident with calculus which has helped immensely.

Roger started by discussing the current topics that were being taught at school. He then proceeded to work on challenging homework assignments. Through these he helped learn new concepts, and shared resources for self-guided practice. Roger's calm demeanor takes the edge off tackling frustrating problems.

Roger was able to help explain calculus problems to me at a great pace. He is able to adapt to your learning style very quickly. Great first experience with a tutor.

Roger is easy going and quite flexible with scheduling lessons. He clearly explained the concepts that confused my son. He was able to get a 5 on the AP test and get an A in the class. It was a wonderful experience.

Roger covered College Business Calculus. He was very patient and took the time to make sure I understood concepts. He was a very good tutor, I would recommend him.

Roger is a great tutor! He knows what my son needs to improve in school and hits all the right marks. I would highly recommend him as a tutor for anyone who needs help understanding material and doing homework in school.

Roger has been tutoring my grandson in Pre-Calculus for half a year. He is a saint to deal with the scheduling issues, conflicts and changes due to my grandson being on two basketball teams. Also, extremely important to me is that he is trustworthy, sensitive to the needs of the student, and he is extremely appropriate in his rules (need parent present to tutor in home, no distractions e.g. "friends" hanging around the session, etc.).

Roger is an excellent tutor. My son is getting better with his math subject. I would recommend him anytime. Very professional when he comes to your house.

My son was reluctant to have a tutor help him in his Calculus class, even though his grade has been steadily slipping. He finally said, yes, and I could not be happier with the results. Roger worked well with him as they went through the problems, and helped him have a better understanding of the concepts. The session went so well that my son agreed to have Roger tutor him once a week.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have taught Algebra 2/Trigonometry for the past 4 years and, whenever possible, try to make it more fun and interesting by connecting the math concepts to real-world applications. Algebra 2 is more challenging than Algebra 1 and follows Geometry so in order to receive a top grade in the class, I always tell my students to spend twice as much time on their studies and to review foundation concepts such as handling fractions and working with negatives as often as possible.

I have taught AP Calculus for 4 years and the majority of my students have received a 5 on the AP exam. When I teach math concepts such as Calculus, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to history and culture so I'll discuss the evolution of unique math concepts. Calculus has a natural connection to science, especially Physics, so I make those connections whenever possible. I also find real-world applications for the Calculus concepts so students see how relevant math is in their lives.

When I teach math concepts such as Geometry, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to the language of math so I'll discuss the etymology of unique math terms. Math has a natural connection to history and science and Geometry especially connects well to the arts and architecture. I also find real-world applications for the math concepts so students see how relevant math is in their lives.

When I teach math concepts such as Precalculus, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to history and culture so I'll discuss the evolution of unique math concepts. I also find real-world applications for the Precalculus concepts whenever possible, so students see how relevant math is in their lives. Precalculus is much more challenging than Algebra 2 and covers more topics so I always tell my students that they should devote twice as much time to their Precalculus studies in order to receive a top grade in the class.

I have taught Trigonometry for the past 4 years and, whenever possible, try to make it more fun and interesting by connecting the math concepts to real-world applications. Trigonometry is more challenging than Algebra 1 and follows Geometry so in order to receive a top grade in the class, I always tell my students to spend twice as much time on their studies and to review foundation concepts such as handling fractions and working with negatives as often as possible.
