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 School District which has schools in Bolingbrook and Romeoville, IL. I have taught Elementary, Middle and High School for the past five years. I have also substitute taught in Naperville and Aurora for the last year and a half in District 204.
My teaching style is to first talk with the student to see what the problems they are having with the particular subject we are working on and then ask them a number of questions about that subject to see exactly what they know and what they do not know and what in particular they are having trouble with. I can then figure out how best to help them with the areas they are having the most difficulty with and put together a plan of action.
Robert is an excellent tutor. He is patient and very knowledgeable of subject and understanding of my child’s needs. After each session, he gives me feedback on my child’s progress, which is very helpful. I would highly recommend Robert to anyone needing a tutor.Lakshmi, 76 lessons with RobertTutor responded:
Thank you very much for the kind and helpful review and I am glad that you appreciate my feedback since it keeps you informed how your daughter is doing. I really appreciate your meaningful response.
Best teacher, my son likes him. He is very patient, very punctual! The lectures are prepared in advance and arranged for the children. I feel he is very professionalMinghui, 55 lessons with Robert
Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor
Robert always comes prepared to lesson. Materials covered are relevant to success in school. He is encouraging and set clear expectation. I highly recommend him.Megan, 26 lessons with RobertTutor responded:
Thank you for the kind and much appreciated feedback. I am glad you noticed that I try to be encouraging specifically to your son and also to all my students both in school and as a tutor. I look forward to continue the progress I am making with your son.
Excellent. Here's why: 1. Bob made it super easy to reach him and the first tutoring session was scheduled within a few days. He's also ridiculously prompt at replying to messages in the app. 2. Bob came to the first tutoring session well prepared and with a plan. As a result even the very first lesson was productive. 3. Bob is very personable. Bob and my son got along great. They quickly found a shared interest in Chicago sports teams. My son is already looking forward to the next session.Mitchell, 7 lessons with RobertTutor responded:
Thank you for the kind and thoughtful feedback. I am glad he is looking forward to our sessions and I have already seen improvement in his comprehension and him looking back at the story to find the correct answer. From what I have seen so far, I expect and believe he will continue to improve.
Thorough and punctual
Bob talked to us to figure out our goals, expectations and schedules. He worked with my daughter to assess her and gave her work to do, my daughter liked him and would like to continue. Thank youPurna, 18 lessons with RobertTutor responded:
I am very glad that your daughter liked me and I definitely enjoyed working with her. I look forward to working with her during the summer and improving both her Math and Language Arts skills.
Approach and Content
Robert taught my twins (4th graders) math, they love his approach, he's been right on point with what they are being taught at school. They surely have gotten better in their math. Robert is also very friendlyDemi, 54 lessons with RobertTutor responded:
Thank you for the much-appreciated feedback on my tutoring of your well behaved and polite son and daughter twins. I look forward to working with them every week and am glad they are getting better in Math and will work with them to make sure it continues.
Knowledgable, Accessible, Effective and Well-Prepared Tutor
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.Melissa, 12 lessons with RobertTutor responded:
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!
6th grade math
Robert was great. He was prepared. My son seemed to have enjoyed his first lesson. Looking forward to the next go round.Christine, 1 lesson with RobertTutor responded:
Thank you for the positive feedback and I am glad your son enjoyed his lesson with me.
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 himPriya, 130 lessons with RobertTutor responded:
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.
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.Matilda, 56 lessons with Robert
