Took time to explain things, very patient, gave homework like we asked! :)

Robert worked with our 2nd grade son to help raise his confidence while reading. He was very willing to explain things before we met and then again explained what he did after the session was over. He gave us homework to reinforce what he did (as asked). He is very patient and made the session fun and engaging for our son.

Excellent Tutor!!

I am very pleased I found Robert. I hired Robert to tutor my nephew (3rd grade) during the summer. They quickly established a nice rapport. My nephew looks forward to his tutoring sessions and I can see the progress he is making. I am very pleased with his progress and with his increased confidence in reading. Robert makes the sessions interesting, fun, and beneficial. Robert is smart, reliable, very patient, and well educated. He is a great tutor and I highly recommend him.

Very Patient with Special Needs Child and Gets Results!

Robert has managed to take a very resistant special needs child who will not sit still for 10 minutes to actually participate for an hour long session. We are seeing progress with reading, phonics and resistance to doing "work". Very Happy to have selected Robert as our tutor.
