I am a former math teacher and an expert in all levels of mathematics through AP Calculus. I have a Master's degree (M.A.T. in Secondary Mathematics) from the University of Louisville. I worked for 11 years teaching high school mathematics to a broad range of students, from "At Risk" students struggling with Algebra 1, to AP Calculus students preparing for studies in college level mathematics.

I am a former math teacher and an expert in all levels of mathematics through AP Calculus. I have a Master's degree (M.A.T. in Secondary Mathematics) from the University of Louisville. I worked for 11 years teaching high school mathematics to a broad range of students, from "At Risk" students struggling with Algebra 1, to AP Calculus students preparing for studies in college level mathematics. The specific courses I taught were: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Precalculus, and Calculus. I have tutored both privately, and also in the tutoring department at Jefferson Community and Technical College. This work included many adult learners as well as traditional college students.
I love mathematics and enjoy helping students overcome their logical hurdles as they advance through more challenging subjects. When I was a college student, I tutored for extra money in the school math lab, helping students on a walk-in basis. I often received positive feedback and comments such as "It's so easy when you explain it like that!" or "I wish my professor could explain things like you do." It makes me feel great to help people when they really need a confidence boost and some clear instruction.
Mathematics can be intimidating, but that doesn't mean it needs to be impossible or unenjoyable. Tutoring is a way to help people; everyone hits the "math wall" at some point. Even the most skilled mathematicians eventually encounter problems that challenge them to the extreme. I love putting difficult ideas into easy to understand terms. I also love seeing the lightbulb turn on when the student gets it.
I am an expert in a wide variety of math subjects. I know, not only what a student needs to know now, but also where it is leading. I can help them in a way that prepares them for years to come as they continue to study mathematics.
I would describe my two main strengths as the following:
1) I am able to take complicated subjects and ideas, and cut through all the complication to make the core concepts much easier to understand. Once that is achieved, the student is better prepared to handle difficult problems, and their comfort level is much higher.
2) When a student is advanced, I love to help them extend concepts into the next level, getting them to think abstractly about the concept and form generalizations. Watching a natural thinker take an idea and run with it is wonderful. I can answer questions and offer guidance when the student begins to wonder and ask "what if...?"
Helping struggling students gain a clear understanding, and helping advanced learners take their next steps, are the heart and soul of tutoring. Those are things that I enjoy and that I am very good at.

Very prompt in response. He is a math whisper
My 18 year old is very bright but has always struggled with math and it has lead her to even have anxiety attacks. She had her first session with Mr. Rob and it was like a light switch was turned on. Her exact words were "I wish I had teachers like him in every subject then high school and upcoming college would be so less scary and challenging. She made her next tutoring session on her own and is looking foward to it. He is the angel I have been praying for to help unlock the door to math for my daughter. When she wants to come home and do math on her own because she now understands it, this is truely huge! He truly has a gift. Thank you Mr. Rob!!!!!!!Lisa, 10 lessons with Rob
Math ACT Prep
Great fit for our two juniors. Very knowledgeable, teaches to each student’s individual needs. Reponds quickly to inquires. Very pleased as are our juniors.Paula, 11 lessons with Rob
My daughter was struggling with geometry, she is a 9th grader, her school teacher had a lot of health complications, unfortunately the substitute was not enough and it did not help that they switched substitutes each time. My daughter 's exact words were " he explains it and it makes sense!" I am grateful for his input. A very respectful person and a great attitude. Thank you for your input!Siham , 1 lesson with Rob
Encouraging and Patient
Rob understands that everyone learns differently. He works to find out what concept is causing a problem and continues to explain math steps in different ways until the "I got it" smile is on your face. I leave a session feeling like I can succeed in math!Lisa, 4 lessons with Rob
Rob was so patient & informative. He took his time explaining anything that didn't make sense & continued to explain until the lightbulb went off. Best math tutor I've ever experienced. Thanks, Rob!Abby, 5 lessons with Rob
Thankful for Mr. Rob
What I like about Mr. he is very flexible on going step by step with my son. he told me that he helped him on his lesson on guiding him with patience to get to the point. I never see my son excited about any tutor before as he did for Mr. Rob so I can say he is a good teacher so far.Ahmed, 9 lessons with Rob
Quality and Competent
Your first impression in meeting Rob will immediately get you to realize he understands math and knows how to improve a student. Impressive how he sees the work of my sons assignments and knows how to make a plan going forward to better him in school. I recommend him to anyone searching for math help.James , 2 lessons with Rob
