About Robert


Bio

Hi!

I'm a product development engineer at 3M and I just received my PhD in physical organic chemistry, focusing on organic solar power, using laser spectroscopy! What this means for you is that I have had relevant experience in very high levels of math, physics and chemistry. I was a high school science teacher (earth and space science, chemistry, and physics), so I know how to make all of this material approachable and I understand how planning and practice make subjects much more...

Hi!

I'm a product development engineer at 3M and I just received my PhD in physical organic chemistry, focusing on organic solar power, using laser spectroscopy! What this means for you is that I have had relevant experience in very high levels of math, physics and chemistry. I was a high school science teacher (earth and space science, chemistry, and physics), so I know how to make all of this material approachable and I understand how planning and practice make subjects much more approachable for any student!

I went to a top liberal arts college in Minnesota for my undergraduate degree, and have proven mastery in writing and language skills. I am an avid reader, and performed highly (>95 percentile) in every standardized test I have taken. I would love to share my insights with eager students.

If you are interested and enthusiastic, I would love to help you learn!

I have my PhD in physical organic chemistry and have been a TA and tutor for all kinds of labs and lectures. I have won two excellence awards as a graduate student TA for general organic chemistry and advanced physical organic chemistry. I have tutored for six years in many types of chemistry: general, analytical, organic, and quantum. I taught high school chemistry for one year as an ESL teacher in American Samoa as well, so I am able to teach to a broad range of learners.

OUTSTANDING, BEST TUTOR EVER!!!

Robert is the best precalculus, calculus and chemistry tutor my daughter has ever had. She has had over 50 tutors during the last 8 years. While she liked Robert very much - after a recent session with a DIFFERENT tutor in a different subject she has refused to work and cooperate with anyone (her school, me or any tutors) and has begun to skip classes again. In summary Robert is an outstanding tutor (the best of many we have tried). He taught my daughter more in 2 hours than any other tutor we have used could have done in 5 hours. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor. It is highly unlikely a better tutor can be found. When she begins cooperating again we will be contacting him first. I have paid between $20-$110/hour for various tutors. Robert was better than any other tutor at any price. A+

Great Tutor!

Bobby is a great tutor! He sure knows a lot about Chemistry! He really tried hard that I (the student) had to come up with the answer, and he wasn't just doing the work for me. This was great because that way I was able to remember the next time I had to do a similar problem. He wants you to figure out answers on your own, but is more than willing to go over the problem afterwards and point out the mistakes I made, what I can do better next time, and important things that I needed to remember the next time I had to solve a similar problem. He is very patient, and he did not make me feel stupid when I didn't understand something. Instead he calmly tried to explain it to me, sometimes in multiple ways to make sure I understood. I highly recommend him as a tutor!

Great Tutor!! Very Thorough and Reliable

Robert S. has been wonderful so far!!! He is easy to contact and gets right back to me. My son really enjoys him and finds his way of explaining things to be very helpful. I would strongly recommend Robert S. for tutoring!!!

Great Tutor for Continuities and Noncontinuities

My daughter feels the tutor is excellent. She feels comfortable with the instructions he gave and feels clear from her doubts. She said she'll try to excercise more on the problems and hopes to return again when she gets stuck on her next project. Thank you for the great service.
