My name is Robert, D.O., and I am pursuing the second stage of my career in Education. I attended the University of Vermont and I graduated from the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology with Distinction in December, 1976. I then attended Osteopathic Medical School in Kansas City, Missouri, graduating in May, 1982 with a Doctor of Osteopathy degree. I have completed residencies in Family Practice
and Internal Medicine. After practicing Family Practice/Internal Medicine for 24 years I have decided to pursue a career in Education, with my ultimate goal of teaching at the Medical School level or the Residency Training level.
I was a Chemistry tutor in college and I was a Substitute Teacher in the Hillsborough County School District in the Tampa, Florida area from November, 2015 to June, 2016, working for Kelly Educational Staffing. I primarily Substitute taught Mathematics and Science, which included Algebra, Geometry as well as Biology, Chemistry, and Health Science to Middle/High School students. It was a challenge, but I like challenges, and overall I enjoyed it.
I like tutoring because you are teaching one on one with the student. It gives me satisfaction to know that I can help a student with a subject that I am familiar with, to help the student understand the subject matter, and to ultimately learn and master the subject matter.
When I was in High School I achieved A's in Algebra I and Algebra II. I liked Algebra because it was a challenge, especially word problems. Retrospectively, Algebra is similar to Medicine, where you are given certain facts, and you have to apply those facts to a situation, and come up with an answer or diagnosis. Once you have learned the basic facts of Algebra, as in Medicine, you apply this information to situations/problems, and again arrive at an answer or diagnosis, which is very rewarding.
I took Anatomy, Biochemistry in college and Osteopathic Medical School, and I took Genetics in college.
I am very familiar with this subject matter, especially Anatomy and Biochemistry. With my scientific/medical knowledge, clinical/teaching experience and my love of teaching, I think I have the attributes to become an outstanding Science Tutor.
I encourage any student that needs assistance with Algebra I, Algebra II, Anatomy, Biochemistry, Genetics or Physiology
to contact me to discuss my tutoring service, and how I can help them. My name is Robert, D.O., and I am pursuing the second stage of my career in Education. I attended the University of Vermont and I graduated from the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology with Distinction in December, 1976.

Dr. G. was very thorough when reviewing concepts that were going to be on an upcoming test. I found his experience in the field to be enlightening when understanding difficult concepts. Very open minded on his approach, and very patient. If you are looking for a kind, honest, and patient tutor at a modest price, look no further.
Dr. Graves is currently tutoring me for my final in anatomy. He is extremely knowledgeable and helps explain everything out until you understand it. Very nice and helpful!
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.
