About Robert

** Lowering Prices for Wyzant ** Lowering Prices for Wyzant ** Lowering Prices for Wyzant

Hi, I'm Robert and I look forward to explaining and working with you at all levels, (K-12 and college level) on science, math, history and writing. I studied Physics and Political Science and have advanced degrees in Applied Physics. My universities were UC San Diego and Columbia University, New York. I have 5 years of tutoring experience and I have lowered my prices to do a lot of tutoring at Wyzant.

I will give good examples so that you understand and answer the questions correctly, and leave with an understanding of what you learned. My teaching style is unique, because it includes teaching study techniques and learning techniques that helped me improve my grades, and can help you too!

I use these techniques myself every day.

Here are some good ideas:

- Do Physics and Math in a step-by-step, structured way. The goal here is to eliminate confusion so that you understand very clearly what happened in your problem.

- Reorganize your educational system (paper, binder, pens, pencils, notes) to maximize productivity, understanding, and greatly reduce awkwardness that gets in the way. Do your Physics, Math or other subjects as a total Professional, Master of the Game.

- Make use of your smartphone (IPhone or Android), together with your notes, to greatly enhance the memory and learning process, and to be an outstanding student.

The main task is subject matter (Physics, Math, Political Science) education, I can include as much information about study technique as you wish.

It's also an option to tutor you online while saving time and driving expense. I use the same descriptive style that helps you understand the subject.

My experience includes the following subjects: Math (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, AP calculus, statistics); Physics (general and AP); Chemistry/Biochemistry (general and AP); Biology; History; Political Science.

Here are some things that a students has said about my teaching style:

"Robert is an outstanding tutor who helped me understand the details of physics and geometry. He also taught me some very important study habits, which helped me get, on one test, the highest score in the class!"

Approved subjects

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.

1st Meeting

Upon meeting Robert, before we started, he informed me he may be taking a job and not be able to tutor me, but let's get started and see how it goes. My first reaction was, why would you accept an invitation to tutor me if you had no intention of being my tutor. Thirty minute before time is to conclude, he tills me he will not be my tutor and plans to discontinue tutoring others because of the job
