About Robert

I've been a private tutor for over 10 years.

As an undergraduate at University of Central Florida (GO KNIGHTS!), I worked part-time as a tutor in the Math Dept.'s Math Lab. There I learned those techniques most effective to bring a student along further than they'd even thought possible. I gained from that time an appreciation for educating others, and sharing with them the joy that comes with understanding new concepts and widening one's perspective.

I offer experience that can only be gained over many years tutoring, providing quality service that leads to quality results. If you're looking for likely the last math tutor you'll ever need then look no further. I offer no temporary fix, nor quick patch that will fade with time. We can work together to help you truly master the material. Together we'll build upon those skills you've already acquired, while at the same time sharpening those that are causing difficulty.

I'm ready to help you. Choose a tutor who cares about your education. Choose me and you won't be disappointed.

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.

Algebra 2

This is probably the subject I have tutored most, as it is so common a requirement for students beginning their college courses.

It's also one of the most important to master to be confident moving forward to the more advanced subjects, like Calculus and Differential Equations.

A solid base in Algebra can mean the difference between a struggle to pass and an easy A. I recommend not letting one's skills in this area to be lacking in any way.

Computer Programming

I was briefly a computer science major at UCF, before switching to mathematics. In high school, I competed as a member of the programming club. That experience was the culmination of many years in school, choosing computer science as an elective whenever possible. I began learning to code in QBASIC back in seventh grade. I quickly learned other languages, including Visual Basic, C, and C++. I even learned the language of my TI graphing calculator. Programming has always been one of my greatest pleasures, and I measure it right up there with math when ranking my strongest areas of study. If you're looking to learn a new programming language or want a lesson that's tailored to computer science in general, I'm the tutor for you.

Differential Equations

Differential equations are used to describe every phenomena observed in the universe, and more! Solving DE's represents a natural step one would take after having learned the first elements of calculus. As a tutor and pure math major at the Math Lab at UCF, I was the "go-to guy" when it came to DE's and the more advanced PDE courses. If you're looking for a DE tutor with several years experience, I'm the guy for the job, and I won't let you down.

Discrete Math

Because so many different mathematical disciplines fall under the umbrella of "discrete mathematics," it takes a "big picture" point of view to really appreciate the vast implications of its principal results. Counting, logic, set theory, probability, number theory, and several more subjects are all contained under the characterization "discrete math," as they all deal with constructions related to operations taken over the integers, and not requiring the full contiuum of real numbers, as in analysis.

As a mathematics major and longtime tutor, I'm uniquely qualified to make sure students are aware of the "big picture" view of discrete math, while mastering the details subject by subject.

Knowledgeable and thorough — I had an Differential Equation tutor with Robert. He definitely knew what he was teaching. Went step by step on the problems and gave me different options as to how to resolve them. Very happy to have him as a tutor! ...
