About Robert

SAT & ACT Prep -- Just One Lesson Will Prove It -- Your SAT Score Can Improve By 60-200 Points! And, your ACT Score Can Improve By 2-6 Points (Composite)! My name is Robert B. I am an expert test prep tutor and certified teacher. With my proven strategies, tips and tricks, you'll become a more confident test taker, eliminate test anxiety and raise your score. My approach is different in that I tailor the instruction to (a) what will most likely get you the highest possible test score, (b) how you enjoy learning and (c) minimize the time that you have to spend reviewing and practicing for your test. I know how much homework you get and how important it is for you to play your sport, attend your practices and also have some downtime. I get it! I make the SAT or ACT Test Prep painless.

Here's some specifics about test prep the Robert B. way: I will teach you PROVEN STRATEGIES for the sentence completion (vocabulary) questions, passage-based questions, writing section and math section of the SAT. And, if you are taking the ACT, I will show you how to master the Reading, English (writing), Science and Math sections. Sure you have to prepare. Anyone can read the practice books. But, I show you how to approach each question type and nail the right answer. For example, did you know that you can answer 85% of the passage-based questions on the SAT by knowing 6 key facts in every passage? Did you know that you need to know 9 key facts to answer all the questions for the ACT Reading section? Did you know that some grammar rules are NEVER tested on the ACT English section? Did you know that you can sometimes find the error in the SAT Error Recognition questions on the SAT writing test by just looking at the answer choices? There are so many tips and tricks.

When you work with me, you'll have a solid strategy for your test AND know the tips and tricks for getting a top score. One lesson will prove it! I work with students of all ability levels, even those with special needs. (Ask me about how I got a special needs student to get a perfect score on his Reading & Math SAT just this past school year.) I am an experienced teacher/tutor. Please contact me with your questions or to reserve your preferred lesson day and time as some days fill up quickly.

Middle School Reading Comprehension & Math Tutoring including prealgebra, algebra 1, & geometry -- Does your son or daughter need to improve his or her grades? Does he or she lack focus or concentration or is simply the victim of a poor classroom environment? Let me show you how my effective tutoring strategies can turn this all around so that your child has a good school experience and improves his or her grades in all subjects. In addition to teaching study skills, test taking skills, note taking skills, reading & writing skills, I teach students how to be proactive in the classroom, improve relationships with teachers and students and become engaged no matter how good (or bad) the teacher is or how interesting or uninteresting the material. What was previously difficult, will no longer be a challenge. You will see a big change in attitude and a solid improvement in grades. What's more, your child will be learning more and studying less. -- A total win-win. Just think, a few weeks from now, you'll be saying that tutoring with Robert B was one of the best decisions that I made for my child.

Tutoring Students with Special Needs -- I tutor students who have special needs -- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Central Processing Disorders, Auditory Processing Disorders, Visual Processing Disorders, Asperger's, Emotional Disorders and others. I am able to teach reading (phonics) and have helped many students who are dyslexic. I can create special phonics sequences (based on the Orton-Gillingham Method) that help students overcome reading problems. I have helped students who were reading at the 2nd grade level improve to the 7th grade level in just 18 months with tutoring twice a week at first, then once a week. For special needs tutoring, please contact me. I love helping special needs students. I can work with your IEP team or provide you with suggested modifications for you to give to your school team.

High School Student Subject Tutoring -- I am a certified social studies teacher with over 15 years experience teaching and tutoring in the social sciences and language arts. I am also able to teach high school level math (algebra, geometry) and biology. I can show you how to learn more and study less. I show you how to make the best use of your school day and teach time management skills that will make your high school life so much better. If you are not getting the grades you want and want to make a change, I am the tutor for you. If you are getting excellent grades and want to learn how to do even better, become an even better student, have trouble with just one or two courses for any reason, let's get to work. Don't let a bad or hard to understand teacher adversely affect your GPA. I can help with U.S. History, American History, AP U.S. History, World History, English, Sociology, Biology, Psychology, Earth Science, Geology and many other subjects.

College Level Tutoring -- I specialize in helping college students with their writing assignments. I can show you how to effectively write your thesis statement and develop your essays and produce your research papers. I can go over your essays and provide you with strong writing support. Additionally, I can help you with your reading assignments, preparing for tests and even completing take home exam questions. I am also somewhat familiar with the online courses being offered by many universities. I also tutor for the Praxis I and Praxis II exams. I invite your inquiry and look forward to exceeding your tutoring expectations! Best of luck in your studies.

Received extensive training through my Teacher Certification Program at William Paterson College working with students with ADD/ADHD. Supervised and provided resource room support for students with ADD/ADHD. I have worked with students, parents and other teachers to create and/or restructure (improve upon) Individual Educational Programs (IEP) for students.

If your child has been classified as ADD/ADHD, I can help you review your IEP and work within its framework to provide academic support. If your child has been classified with a different learning disability, I may be able to help you with that too. Often, a child with ADD/ADHD has other classifications that must be addressed.

Don't struggle, get help from a teacher who cares about how you learn, not just what you learn. With algebra, so many teachers just are about getting the problem done right and their way. When you work with me, I show you how to get the math problems done right; but, I do it according to your learning style.
