About Robert

I am a math tutor and also a math major at St. Joseph's College. In my senior year of high school, I led my math team to the state championship meet. When I first became a math tutor, I was shocked how few people truly understood basic mathematical concepts. After I was done, the class all passed my last test with 90's and the average score was 97.

My approach is that I treat all my students like human beings. I feel that the best teaching style is to make the subject exciting and easy to understand. I also think that what the student says is just as important as what I am teaching. I am not a teacher that will deny all questions and tells the students to "sit down and be quiet." I will answer any and all questions that are given.

I also notice that the economy isn't exactly going the way we would like it to. When I was looking at prices, I noticed on average, tutors are charging $40 an hour. Which is why I am only charging $15-20 an hour, because I highly believe that education is an American right and because it is the best quality at the lowest price.

Approved subjects

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.

Prealgebra

Most of my tutoring experience is with pre-algebra. I must admit, this is one part of a good math student's foundations. But, does not having prealgebra mean not being a good student? Of course not! It just means that some classes may be more difficult. Once we are able to tackle this, I promise you that you will come to enjoy (or at least, be skillful enough) for any math courses in the future.

Excellent tutor for Calc 1

Robert helped me review for my Calc 1 final exam. He is very knowledgeable with the material and patient. I appreciated how he was able to adapt the approach to my specific course and text. I aced my final, thus I am quite satisfied.
