My goal for every student, in every lesson, is to help you understand a specific Algebra 1 subject so well, that if your teacher were absent tomorrow, that you could stand up in front of the class, and explain the topic so well that all of your classmates would understand completely. If I fail to do that by the end of the first session, you don't have to pay.

Great Math Tutor.

Bob worked with my son this year on Algebra 2 and it was very successful. He was able to explain things in a way that my son understood and was able to utilize on his tests. I highly recommend Bob, he is knowledgeable, patient and easy to work with.

Excellent!!!!

Bob was available on short notice for our final exam emergency session. My daughter is in an advanced math class that is very fast paced covering two years of HS math in one year. Bob came prepared and spent two hours with my daughter. We originally only booked an hour but he accommodated us by staying to finish. Not only was he knowledgeable but he taught my daughter tons of tricks, tips, & shortcuts!! Amazing!! She is ready for her final and we will be using Bob for next school year!! Book him you will not regret it!

Patrick, 1 lesson with Bob

Bob is flexible, knowledgeable and patient

My daughter found her first session with Bob very insightful and she feels it will help her as she prepares for the SAT. She thought he was very knowledgeable, gave her some good strategy ideas for when she takes the test, and will be taking more tutoring sessions with Bob in the next few weeks to help her as she prepares for the SAT. Thank you Bob.
