About Rob

Greetings! My name is Robert, and I am an educator with two Master's degrees. In addition to having been a graduate assistant, I have been in this field for more than 5 years, and have greatly appreciated the opportunity to work with many different students.

I am currently a math instructor and a tutor for secondary and college-level students. Math is what I studied in college and is the subject that I am the most comfortable tutoring. However, I received a liberal arts education and can assist with other subjects such as Accounting, Computer, and Science.

I will work with you step-by-step and can also provide my own problems, although advance notice of what topics you would want to go over would be very helpful.

My current rate does include some preparation time as well as a stipend for travel expenses.

You can expect that the tutoring sessions will be completely professional and that each one will develop your understanding of the subject or subjects. Your satisfaction is guaranteed by both myself and WyzAnt. I have good availability, so there is no reason to hesitate. Please contact me right away to schedule a session!

I look forward to hearing from you.

It's always a pleasure to work with a student who has resolved to improve at math. I have very high hopes for this semester and going forward.

"Very helpful and understanding."

"Awesome Tutor"

Working with your son was a great experience. I was very impressed by his drive for knowledge as well as his ultimate academic performance. I would definitely be willing to tutor him again. Best of luck.

"Fell Far below Expectations"

- Jennifer, Windsor, CT on 11/6/14
Rob replied on 11/6/2014

I worked with Jennifer over this summer. We met five times, plus a complementary meeting at a Starbucks. Each of these meetings was at a location that was convenient for her, rather than at a location closer to me. I really did try my best to be available and on time for this student.

I am sorry to hear that my watching the clock was a problem. I do this to make sure that we accomplish everything that I think is important during our session and to not waste any of the customer's time. It is for the same reason that I try to not spend too much time on explanations and try to get to some problems that we can work on during the session. If this is not enough, I suggest looking over the material between meetings to reinforce and process what is being learned.

I do not expect to supply materials or books during a session. If there is anything that is needed, that is up to the student to provide or make known. Under my current policy, I have budgeted for some preparation time but that is something that either needs to be worked out ahead of time or given to me during the session. If there are any issues with finding suitable materials I would be happy to make suggestions.

As for the implication that I did not think that Jennifer was smart enough, nothing could be farther from the truth. On a couple of occasions I did try to imply to her that I thought that she would have been better off taking a college algebra course rather than rely entirely on a GRE workbook to learn the material. I felt that it was my duty to try to be honest with her rather than just let things go without saying anything. That said, I am willing to admit that I work better in conjunction with a teacher rather than as the sole instructor.

So how does what Jennifer is saying jive with the fact that I am a highly rated tutor? Well, here is the situation in a nutshell: if you are looking for a tutor that can be fun, engaging, is interested in your success, and is happy to share his math knowledge with you, I am the tutor for you. If you are looking for something else, then yes, I would advise you to find another tutor. That said, I am willing to work with any student, no matter their background or training. Anyone should feel free to contact me and see if we can work something out. Thank you.

Rob replied on 5/6/2014

It is my pleasure, Marlene. It was not a problem at all to accommodate you, and I am also happy with your son's progress. I hope that this solid foundation in math will be of good use as your son continues his education.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Differential Equations

Differential equations require time and effort to master but they are essential to understanding of how mathematics underlies many real-world processes. To that effect, I will provide insights on separable equations, exact equations, integrating factors, and homogeneous equations. I will also help enrich that understanding with plenty of examples and applications, such as predator-prey systems.

My college offered two different versions of differential equations. One course was more theoretical and the other focused on applications; I excelled in both. Furthermore, as a tutor, I have helped several college students perfect their understanding of the steps involved in setting up and evaluating such equations.

Discrete Math

I have had the opportunity to learn discrete math as part of my general math studies. In the past I have tutored discrete math at the middle school level as well as part of other tutoring assignments. My discrete math experience is primarily with linear programming and utility theory. I am also very interested in logic, probability, and game theory, with applications to computer science.

Discrete math is a relevant and practical area of mathematics. Many real-world problems can be modeled using this area of math. Since it is at its core a straightforward examination of real situations, discrete math is the perfect subject for learners of every level and age.

Linear programming, for example, is very useful when solving production and usage problems. Another topic is combination theory, which leads to the study of future possibilities and can be used from anything planning out diagrams to setting up a schedule of chores. As a discrete math tutor I challenge my students to learn about these core principles of mathematics in a way that is relevant to their life and surroundings.

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra has been an important component of much of my education and teaching experience. It was one of my best subjects in college, and following that time, I have also had the opportunity to incorporate linear algebra as an educator.

Classes I have taught that use this knowledge include business math and college algebra, both of which have involved some level of linear programming and matrices.
