About Roger


Bio

I have a Doctor of Philosophy in Modeling and Simulation, a Master of Science in Systems Management (MBA for technical organizations), and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. In addition to more than 6 years of tutoring experience, I am also a cognitive scientist, a human knowledge theoretician, published in scholarly journals, and have taught at the community college level.

I have a Doctor of Philosophy in Modeling and Simulation, a Master of Science in Systems Management (MBA for technical organizations), and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. In addition to more than 6 years of tutoring experience, I am also a cognitive scientist, a human knowledge theoretician, published in scholarly journals, and have taught at the community college level.

Adding to my knowledge, teaching experience, and fun-loving nature, we will have a unique resource to help us "work smart." Other tutors and students must use intuition to make instructional and learning decisions about how best to teach and how best to learn. However, because of bias, lack of knowledge, or unwillingness to adapt, these intuitive decisions may or may not be optimal for the learning situation you are in. We, on the other hand, will have the benefit of possibly the world's first online, quantitative, scientifically-based instructional and learning design decision support system which I have developed over many years of research. Although the technology may well be commonplace in tomorrow's classrooms, it is revolutionary today. It has the ability to zero in on powerful strategies which have proven to work and recommend optimal instructional strategies for the teacher and optimal learning strategies for the student, in real time. As the situation changes, the recommendations change, resulting in much more productive student-teacher interactions - more bang for your buck. An experiment using this tool's core technology resulted in a 21 percent improvement in instructional effectiveness and a 50 percent improvement in efficiency. Furthermore, the more it is used, the smarter it will get. More importantly, the more recommended learning strategies you learn and use, the better learner you will become - a very important lifelong skill in a constantly changing, competitive world. For the moment, this tool will be available only to my students, and if you become my student you will receive a free one-year subscription to the decision support tool once the product is offered to the public. I have been awarded a grant by the U.S. National Science Foundation to develop this potentially game-changing product.

As we grow together, I will have four goals for you: (1) you will become a better learner; (2) you will learn the subject matter well - with great clarity; (3) you will test well, and; (4) you will have fun doing 1-3. Result: you will become short-term smarter and long-term wiser - a better, more competent, more complex human being, ready to grow individually and make great contributions to society.

Bottom line: For very rational reasons I was ranked the #1 tutor from more than 800 WyzAnt tutors in the Central Florida area for two years in a row, and have been ranked as high as #2 nationally. I very much look forward to meeting you, developing a positive long-term relationship, and helping you become more successful.

Having earned a Ph.D., I consider myself to be a great learner. I don't know everything, but there's not much I can't learn. Leveraging this interest and expertise in learning, I have developed a unique online system which recommends optimal learning strategies to you, the learner, in real time. As the situation changes, the recommendations change. As it gets smarter, the recommendations get better. There are currently more than 80 learning strategies in the system, and I hope you will learn them all - what they are, how to use them, and when to use them. Developing this ability to learn will give you a great lifelong skill in an increasingly dynamic and competitive world.

TEAS

My many years as a successful student in the TEAS subject areas (culminating in a Ph.D.), my knowledge of optimal instructional and learning strategies, and the proper patient and encouraging attitude toward your emotional needs qualify me to tutor you on the TEAS test. We'll have great fun learning the TEAS subject matter and useful how-to-learn skills. I have helped nearly 30 different people successfully prepare for the TEAS over the past 3 years. For example, one recent student went from failing twice to passing and was very happy.

Patient and Wise

He quickly identified weaknesses and proposed a course of action. He worked diligently to set up program to rectify the issues he found and schedule future lessons.

Wendy, 36 lessons with Roger

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

We worked on some of my weaknesses which included: graphing linear equations, solving and graphing quadratic equations, graphing linear inequalities, and solving systems of linear equations. My knowledge on these topics increased after the lesson.

Mary, 2 lessons with Roger

Good start

The first session was time to find out where my son was on his knowledge of Pre-Calculus. We told him that there was a test the next day and they got right to work. We look forward to him helping my son.

Kelly, 1 lesson with Roger

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Roger is helping my son prepare for the ASVAB. He is patient and quickly assessed his weaknesses and worked with him to strengthen his skills for the test.

Jennifer, 22 lessons with Roger

Excellent tutor with a wide range of subject matter expertise. Especially helpful for a home schooled student. Results oriented and an absolute pleasure to work with.

We found Dr. Roger to be very positive in his approach, which made learning much easier for my senior high school, home school student. Dr. Roger is flexible in his availability and scheduling. He is an expert in many subjects, which is great for our home school program. He is a true educator with a flair for being able to reach a student. We feel very blessed to have such a resource of knowledge and instruction as part of our home school education curriculum. We look forward to continuing to work together. Thank you, Dr. Roger!

Excellent tutor.

Excellent tutor. My son just received a 95 on his finance test at UCF. He has helped motivate my son and goes out of his way to make himself available for tutoring sessions. My son said that Roger is best tutor he has worked with since starting college in 2013.

Patrick, 81 lessons with Roger

A smart and practical tutor.

Dr. Roger was very patient and persistent when aiding me in learn difficult statistical concepts. His easy going nature removes the intimidation factor. He was a pleasure to work with.

Chris, 1 lesson with Roger

Amazing teacher

Mr. Roger is way beyond expectation in understanding a student. In one lesson he could figure out what area my daughter needs help. Too confident , prepared and knowledgeable. I feel blessed to have had him for her.He has a unique way of teaching and a very cooperative person. Words are too little to describe him.

Shirin, 9 lessons with Roger

Great experience!

It was a pleasure working with Roger, he helped me to have a better understanding of quantitative analysis, and did so not by giving me the answers, but by coaching me and allowing me to find them myself.
