Hi, I'm Bob. I have a Master's degree in history and a minor in mathematics. I have taught for 35+ years at the secondary and community college levels. In social studies, I taught all levels, including AP US History and AP American Government & Politics. In mathematics, I taught courses from Basic Math to Precalculus. I also coached a lot of baseball and some football and moderated various extracurricular activities. Interacting with students outside the classroom enabled me to appreciate my students as people, more than just pupils.

Throughout my teaching career, I tutored students beyond the classroom. Working 1-on-1 or in small groups allows me to more effectively assess students' skills and abilities and tailor lessons or sessions to their particular needs. I also have experience tutoring homeschooled children. Using online resources and materials supplied by students' classroom teachers and parents, I facilitate learning in a relaxed, non-stressful, and fun atmosphere. Your (or your child's) success is my only goal. I look forward to answering any questions or scheduling lessons.

I am well-qualified to tutor students needing assistance in social studies or mathematics.
I am easy to reach and will respond quickly to any questions you may have or to schedule tutoring sessions.

I have 35+ years experience teaching and tutoring students in mathematics from basic arithmetic to Trigonometry and Precalculus.

From there, math concepts can then be addressed and student performance improved.

Bob L. was helpful in walking my son through the steps needed to organize his thoughts and his writing to complete APUSH LEQs. If my son needs help in the future, I would be more than comfortable and confident scheduling another lesson with Bob L. Thank you for your help.
