About Robert


Bio

I am currently a pharmacy student at the University of North Carolina, and graduated from Johns Hopkins in 2011 with a degree in neuroscience. For the last three years, I served as a Teach for America corps member in Connecticut, where I taught 7th and 8th grade mathematics at Bridgeport Public Schools. I have three years of experience as a certified teacher, and have spent many more years tutoring individuals. In high school, I worked with students in advanced placement physics and calculus....

I am currently a pharmacy student at the University of North Carolina, and graduated from Johns Hopkins in 2011 with a degree in neuroscience. For the last three years, I served as a Teach for America corps member in Connecticut, where I taught 7th and 8th grade mathematics at Bridgeport Public Schools. I have three years of experience as a certified teacher, and have spent many more years tutoring individuals. In high school, I worked with students in advanced placement physics and calculus. In college, I continued to work one-on-one with students in calculus I and II, algebra, biology, and physics, and also served as a teaching assistant in cognitive neuroscience and organic chemistry lab classes. In my junior and senior years, I founded a student group at Johns Hopkins called the Community School Initiative, in which student volunteers taught basic science and facilitated labs/demonstrations to help spark interest for the sciences at a local charter school.

Although I left teaching to return to school, I remain extremely passionate about it. Classroom instruction and tutoring are rewarding experiences, each offering its own rewards and challenges. I particularly value tutoring individuals because this is the best context from which to learn about the strengths and weaknesses of the student, and to build a meaningful relationship that supports the learning experience. As an instructor, I would consider myself extremely patient, friendly, and approachable. I am more than willing to provide repetition and change my pace as need, and to adapt my style to the student's personality. I hold all my students to high expectations - I expect that they try their hardest, that they are proactive in their learning, and that they will never hesitate to ask questions.

My goal is to maximize your student's learning. Therefore, students should not expect me to feed them solutions. Instead, I will guide their thinking and allow them to discover the answers for themselves. This keeps students on their feet at all times and - most importantly - helps to fortify their understanding and long term retention of the content.
