About Robert


Bio

I've been a private tutor for over 15 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've been a private tutor for over 15 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.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

As a tutor of all math subjects I can provide the kind of instruction that will serve students long after they’ve finished their initial studies in elementary mathematics, instilling habits that will ensure confidence going forward.

Homeschool

Algebra 2,

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.
Calculus,

Calculus

I scored 5's on both the AP Calculus AB and BC tests. I've tutored calculus so much I think I've seen just about every problem in most textbooks and can explain solutions in ways that stick.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra is one of my most frequently requested subjects to tutor and so I have a lot of experience explaining the concepts in a way that will carry through to the later subjects like Algebra and Calculus.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is one of my favorite subjects to tutor, to help give students that last layer of algebra and what will be become their first glimpse into the calculus.

Differential Equations,

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,

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.

Great start!

Was with Robert! Was a great first lesson, got to learn my weakness and where I need to focus, it’s only our first session, can’t wait to keep going!

Simon, 6 lessons with Robert

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Robert is an excellent tutor and he explains things in a way that you're able to understand. I have Robert helping me through my geometry class and he's patient and thorough with his explanation of every problem.

Linda, 9 lessons with Robert

Excellent and patient tutor!

Robert is very knowledgeable and competent in Physics at any level. I am fortunate to have received his support! I recommend him to anyone struggling with this course.

Setting you up for success - Algebra 2 Honors

My son needs help with Algebra 2 Honors. Robert went through reviewing some past and current lessons that my son is struggling with. He has done a good job setting him up on a plan to get him up to where he needs to be. We plan to continue to use him in the future on a regular basis.

Tisha, 4 lessons with Robert

Excellent Tutor

Robert is super knowledgeable and very good at making the subject matter easy to understand. He also gave great pointers on ways I can improve on my own. 10/10!

John, 1 lesson with Robert

Dependable and can explain things in a simple fashion.

My son appreciates the way Robert explains concepts in an understandable way. The math concepts have been difficult for him in the past and now he can grasp how to perform the problems.

Dean, 11 lessons with Robert

Accommodating and helpful

We went over the theory behind hypothesis tests, the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis, type I and type II errors, two way contingency tables and chi-squared tests of independence, finding the expected value in two-way tables, interpreting the p-value, and using it to determine if rejection of the null hypothesis is warranted by the data.

Cameron, 13 lessons with Robert

Knowledgeable, approachable, and enthusiastic

Robert is a great tutor. He is very patient and incredibly enthusiastic about everything. He makes learning fun. I love reviewing calculus with him and his enthusiasm for math rubs off. Today we went over the chain rule, finding the velocity and acceleration functions from the position function and finding the equation of a tangent line to a curve, and finding the average velocity and average acceleration.

Jessica, 7 lessons with Robert

Motivation

Robert is trying to motivate my unmotivated son. He is believing in him and really seems to care about him. He is patient, never makes my son feel inferior or stupid, just the opposite. My son looks forward to his time with Robert.
