About Robert

I am currently a physics teacher who works with students in our school from several different backgrounds as well as students with IEP's. Subjects with which I have worked range from my specialty- physics- to other sciences, to many levels of math, to English from simple grammar exercises to writing research papers and making sure they fit requirements. It is my deepest desire to see students succeed with the work they have so that can move on to more challenging tasks.

My background? I attended HS here in NC and I completed my BS in physics in 1982 and my MEd shortly thereafter. I enjoy the physical sciences very much. My own children are grown and making their way through post secondary education and I have "adopted" some of their friends and students from my classroom. I am only recently (less than ten years) in the classroom but my previous retail background taught me to focus on the customer (student) in front of me and I have current student who really appreciate it. I will give you the same attention if you desire my help!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

Although I never took the ACT, I scored very well on the SAT math when I took it back in the day, 750 out of 800. My experience in teaching physics gives me much work with math all the way through trigonometry so I do see the ACT math every day. Also, I have successfully tutored students in the ACT math. Let's get together and see where we can go!

Algebra 1

My primary focus is science but it is science with math. My primary subject is physics and then physical science so I see lots of math in my day-to-day working- anywhere from algebra/math ! to trigonometry and precalculus. I can help in the math area you need!

Algebra 2

I teach physics and so I use Algebra II every day with my students. I can help!

Chemistry

I am a physics teacher but also teach physical science. Physical science is a touch of chemistry and a touch of physics so I see some every semester I teach. However I have also taught chemistry with some success and I helped my daughter and her friend through college level chemistry just a year or so ago. I can help with chemistry. Plus, I am really good at stoichiometry and the gas laws!

English

I work extensively with our English department where I teach on junior papers, both helping students with original composition of the paper as well as rewrites when a paper fails the first time. As a bonus, I also read papers for grades so I have some practice at spotting the errors that can sometimes be overlooked. I have even been complimented by out English teachers at my thoroughness!

Physics

My BS is in physics so I have had much training in the area. Much math is required for the BS so I am also well qualified to do the math involved in the work. Last thing is that I have students who appreciate the help I give when they need it so I believe I can help in this kind of situation.

Proofreading

In the school where I teach physics, many students come to me for help with ediing their work. As I help the English department with the grading of junior papers, I get much practice at spotting errors and also have some answers for questions. Usually, it is a matter of rearranging a few sentences- or words- to make meaning clearer. Sometimes it even helps make the student's point even better than the original wording!

Writing

In the school where I teach physics, I work closely with the English department for junior English papers. I help students with their composition and arrangement in their writing. Also, I am responsible for grading once the papers are submitted for a grade. I have had students come to me for help when they fail so they can pass the second time around.

Knowledgable and patent tutor

I met with Robert to get help with Calculus based Physics. He took time to explain concepts that the equations were describing. I will definietly be returning for more help throughout the semester.
