“**Great tutor**”

I currently am a certified teacher from K-9th grade and teach all elementary grade classes along with Middle school and some high school Math classes. I also have an undergraduate degree from DePaul University in Chicago in Accounting and I also took a number of extra math classes. I have also been a substitute school teacher in the Valley View

Mr. Robert is patient and teaches so that the student understands the thought process for arriving at an answer, not just rote memorization. I highly recommend him

Thank you for the awesome feedback and I appreciate that you recognize that I want to help teach your son but also want them to understand what they are doing. Thank you for the excellent feedback.

I met with Robert once a week to prepare for the Mathematical Knowledge and Arithmetic Reasoning sections of the ASVAB test. It has been about three years since I have taken any sort of math class, so when I met Robert I was in desperate need of a tutor to help me relearn a lot of the formulas and equations I had forgotten. Before each session I would give Robert a print out of the ASVAB practice test and topics I would be studying that week. We would both work on the test individually during the week and then at our sessions we would go over all problems together. Robert was always very professional. He arrived on time to every session and had always completed all the problems before we met. Since he was always so prepared we were able to make the most out of our hour together. Robert helped me to understand the core concepts behind each problem instead of just memorizing steps. He understood that during the test I would be under a time constraint and made sure to always show me a faster way to solve a problem. He is very patient and knowledgable about a wide variety of mathematical concepts. I would highly recommend him.

Thank you, Melissa, for the well written and detailed review of our tutoring sessions. I truly appreciate the time you took and the thought you put into writing this for me and also the nice things you said about my tutoring style. Thank you very much!

Robert was great. He was prepared. My son seemed to have enjoyed his first lesson. Looking forward to the next go round.

Thank you for the positive feedback and I am glad your son enjoyed his lesson with me.

Robert worked with my 12 year old on algebra. Sometimes algebra is difficult for him, but Robert is able to comes up with different ways to show my son how to work these problems out. He's always paitent and understands that each child has a different way of learning. Robert has been such a great help to my son. I refere to him as my handy dandy math dictionary.

Robert is helping my son. I'll provide final review after all the lessons are complete; my son likes him and so I hope he continues to teach and show the patience and understanding he did today.

Robert is very dedicated and makes certain that each session is tailored exactly to the students need and addresses it.

Bob is an outstanding prealgebra and ACT Aspire tutor. He tutored my middle school daughter during the summer break. I highly recommend him.

He is one of the most patient and kind tutors. My son can't wait for him to come and I have also started to notice that my son does his homework without having as many problems. All because of Mr. Robert. I can't thank him enough, and he always works with our schedule. My son can't wait to see him again.

I am very glad to hear you are happy and satisfied with my tutoring. I thoroughly enjoy working with your son and he seems to have fun while we are learning also. He is great to work with and is always very polite and kind. I wish there were more students like him.

My 12 year old son has been getting tutored by Bob for a couple months now. Bob does a great job being very patient and thorough explaining things step-by-step while working with my son's tendency to want to rush through things. My son enjoys working with him, and as a result his math grades have improved as well as his ability to solve step by step problems. We look forward to continuing working with Bob through the summer months as well. We highly recommend him. He's great!

Mr Robert is a great tutor. He is very thorough and sincere. My kids love him, he improved my kids in to a higher level of learning in math, reading and writing. I highly recommend him.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

The studying of algebra can seem confusing to some since there are a large number of mathematical terms involved in doing this kind of work. The way I teach and tutor algebra is simple. You first have to figure out what the question is looking for then go step by step making sure you write everything down and then coming to the correct answer. I would work at the student's pace and make sure they understand the basics since you do a large amount of work with equations which are problems with an equal sign in them. There is a bunch of adding, subtracting multiplying and dividing in these problems. My substitute teaching experience in two different school districts one for six years and the other for two years along with my pre teaching undergraduate degree in Accounting helps me understand what is involved and filter this down to my students so they understand what the problem is they are trying to figure out.

I enjoy reading about and teaching history especially American History since there is so many interesting things that have happened. Most of the things that have happened affect us some how today and it is important to learn about these events and see how they impact us at the current time.

I am a certified K-9 teacher looking for a full time elementary teaching job. I have substitute taught for six years in district 365U, Bolingbrook/Romeoville and for two years in district 204, Naperville/Aurora. I work almost exclusively at the elementary school age level but have tutored a home schooled seventh grader for more than six months meeting 2-3 times per week. I enjoy working with and seeing children succeed while working on a problem and finding the correct answer.

I enjoy teaching all types of Math and want Math to be fun when I teach it. I use a large number of manipulatives or hands on devices to get the point across. Math is not hard you just have to take everything one step at a time and be slow and steady.

I have always had an interest in learning about different countries and what they produce and where they are located. I also have been able to travel around the world and have been to Australia, Mexico, Canada, Tahiti, Hong Kong and forty (40) of the fifty states. I have a map of the world in my computer room and look at it every day and try to learn something new about the world.

As a substitute teacher in two different school districts working in one for six years and one for two years and being a recently certified K-9 teacher I always enjoy teaching Geometry. It is the one Math subject where you get to use three dimensional shapes, work with lies and shapes and triangles and parallel and perpendicular lines. You also get to draw triangles and angles and measure them with a protractor. I cannot draw at all but working in Geometry is always fun and is easy once you understand the basics and realize that formulas are involved to figure out area, perimeter and volume.

As a tutor who specializes in Math, Prealgebra is a Math topic that you have to work at one step at a time. Some problems or equations may look hard but if you take each problem and do one thing at a time and write it down it becomes much easier to handle. As a Math tutor this is how I approach all topics and prealgebra is no different. I am also a recently certified teacher eagerly searching for a teaching position. As a substitute teacher for the past six years, I always enjoy teaching Math in either elementary or even middle school. It is fun for me and I try to show my enthusiasm and enjoyment whenever I teach any subject in Math.

As a substitute teacher in two different school districts, there are a large number of jobs that are able to be chosen in a given time period. Since I know Reading is one of the most important, if not the most important, subjects to learn and to teach, I often take a job as a Reading teacher. This position gives me the opportunity to work with a small group of children and help them improve their reading skills. I realize how important reading is, and want to help anyone and everyone I can to read better, which will help them to better understand what they are reading and begin to enjoy it.

I am a recently certified teacher for grades K-9 and have substitute taught for over five years in one district and more than one year in another school district. I have also done some tutoring with two different students for more than six months with each of them. I have worked with a large number of different types of children with a large variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and have always found a way to help them. There are a number of different ways to teach someone how to study. The best way to do this is to talk to them and see which way they think would work best for them and then try a couple of different styles. They may need to use different methods for different subjects but repetition is always the best way to go.

I enjoy learning new words and look at the web site dictionary.com since they give a new word every day to learn and to use. It is important to use different words and not always say big or good and try some other different, better or not often used words.

## Social Studies

I am a substitute teacher in two different school districts and always enjoy teaching Social Studies in whatever grade it is. I enjoy reading about the past and the interesting things that happened and thoroughly learned a large number of things while discussing the past with my students. I have learned a large amount during these interactions and have engaged in numerous discussions with the students in my classrooms. I always try to read up about the particular topic we will be working on and since I have a fondness for this subject I remember a large number of interesting facts about important people, places and events that took place. It shows when you like a particular subject and Social Studies is one of those subjects for me. I have fun when I teach it and I know my students always learn something when we discuss the days events.
