Algebra 1

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.

Most students do well with Algebra and discover that Geometry is a total mystery. I can help them feel more comfortable with Geometry.

Great Math Tutor!!

Bob makes my son feel very comfortable and at ease when working on some difficult math issues! He is great! We will definitely be reaching out to him if needed down the road.

Michael, 1 lesson with Bob

Enthusiastic Tutor

He taught me ratio and rates. He was very enthusiastic and passionate. Great energy and I learned a lot! Made me feel more at ease and was very welcoming. Overall he is a great tutor. Thanks, Bob!

Chris , 1 lesson with Bob

Bob was very patient and knowledgeable put my son at ease

My son was having a hard time with pre calculous and Bob was able to take him step through step so that he could be more confident with the subject. My son calls him a “Math God”. Having that one on one is important especially with someone who is struggling to get that attention in a big high school.

Excellent Tutor!

My son was struggling in Geometry and had an upcoming mid-term. Bob worked with him and was fantastic. When finished with the lesson, my son said to me "I finally get it" He got a B+ on his mid-term which is a huge accomplishment. Thank you Bob.

great tutor!

Bob helped my step-daughter with her Algebra exam. He's very professional, patient and knows how to explain the subject really well. He's able to identify and focus on deficiencies.

Sergio, 5 lessons with Bob

Great Algebra 2 tutor

Bob helped my son with his final exam in algebra 2 and my son finished the class with an A!! He was patient and the class is helping him get into college. Will definitely use him again for college and increasing his SAT score.

Great Experience

My son does well in Math when he doesn’t rush or get anxious. He was frustrated when I taught him. Bob has a great calming and encouraging approach. I even like when he joked about what the characters in the word problems might be “up to”. Bob sends screen prints, is punctual and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Jennifer, 6 lessons with Bob

Algebra 1

Bob is excellent with bi, tri and polynomials! Great help for my 8th grade twins on simplifying how to divide polynomials with negative exponents! We love having Bob available to simplify otherwise complex algebra!
