About Robert


Bio

Physics is all around us, embedded in everything we do. Learning physics is learning about our world and how it works. My approach is conceptual in nature. I use practical, real world examples to bring light to and understanding of physics concepts. While physics does have math in it (since the universe uses math to explain itself to us), math is only a tool to be used in forming our understanding. I am certified to teach high school physics by the State of Connecticut and have taught physics...

Review for Robert S.

Robert has been providing tutoring for my son in the area of AP Physics for over a month and has made a significant difference in my sons' ability to grasp concepts and succeed in class. Robert has great expertise in his subject areas and has been able to assess and teach to my sons' specific learning style. He is very positive and relates the subject to real life situations which helps in the interest, comprehension and remembering of concepts. I highly recommend Robert.

Great Tutor

Robert has come to our house now two times. Both times he has spent the whole time getting down to teaching. No wasted time. He incorporates good examples to do with the task at hand. He is very soft spoken. Easy for my daughter to follow. Connects well with her and uses examples and even changed to meet her needs. I feel that Robert offers an excellent level of ability and we would recommend him.
