My past experience of teaching graduate students at Stevens Institute of Technology allows me to teach college level general chemistry and Organic Chem. (Orgo!)

I am also available via Skype on a virtual whiteboard anytime in between scheduled classes. No need to wait, if you have burning questions.

Exceptional tutor!

Bob has been very helpful to my son particularly with his AP Chemistry summer assignments. We plan to use him as needed through the upcoming school year! Terrific fit for our son!

Reena, 2 lessons with Bob

Excellent tutor

Great tutor, patient and helpful, very knowledgeable with great resources. Explains and reinforces concepts taught in class and helps with meaningful and practical understanding of material.

Janice , 6 lessons with Bob

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

After not having much success with the free tutoring service at the college, we sought out Bob to teach our son Organic Chemistry 2. We read all the profiles and reviews of the tutors and liked Bob immediately. He was exactly what was said about him. He is very patient, accommodating and responsive. Bob always asks what my son wants to focus on and then work around my son's needs. He is a calming influence who help instill confidence in the subject. After a few lessons, my son has improved his understanding but he has a ways to go but he feels better knowing Bob is there to assist with questions, review of lecture notes etc...when needed. While Bob may be more expense compared to the other tutors, you do get what you pay for and this is one subject matter you don't want to "test" out. We would highly recommend him.

Expert Mathematician who makes learning fun!

Bob has been tutoring our teenager in an advanced Algebra class for several months. Prior to tutoring with Bob, her grades were the lowest she had ever received. Since tutoring with Bob, her grades are steadily improving. Math has always been her least favorite subject but now she actually looks forward to her tutoring sessions with Bob. In her words, Bob makes it "fun" to solve mathematical equations. Bob interacts very well with our daughter and the lessons with Bob have instilled a level of unprecedented confidence in her when it comes to Math. Notably, Bob permits his tutoring students to text him outside of lessons if they are struggling with homework assignments. On numerous occasions, our daughter has texted Bob in the evening seeking advice on solving problems and Bob has done his best to respond. Bob is an excellent tutor who I would recommend without reservation.

Katharine, 13 lessons with Bob

very patient and nice

This was my first lesson with bob and it was very good. He is a very patient and understanding man and knows how to break the material down for me. I look forward to having more lessons with him!

Lisa, 2 lessons with Bob

Very professional tutor

First lesson with my daughter. By the end of the lesson she's a fan. He is a true professional and you can just sense that your child will do well. He called me later to let me know that he is avail. anytime to help with specific issues or questions . He is expensive but like anything else, you get what you pay for.

Knowledgeable General Chemistry 2

Bob is such a caring, knowledgeable, passionate instructor and tutor. In my personal experience I previously took Chemistry 2 at the university level and preformed below average and retook the course a second time but this time with Bob's help. With his immense dedication and my hard work I saw positive results and higher scores instantaneously.These results happened after my first two hour session. Not to mention my course was very accelerated and condensed with many chapters and topics in 6 week course. All of the material was still covered and there were exams almost every week which was very challenging but have no fear with Bobs help he will make sure to devote his time and focus to be personally invested in his students. Bob is very knowledgeable and lives and breathes chemistry, He has a great and enjoyable personality and will help you with material in any and every way he can. Bob is a great person and an amazing tutor. I cannot wait for the Fall to start as I know If I have any difficulty with upper level biology courses or any science course Bob is the man to go to and he is highly recommended!

Samantha, 10 lessons with Bob

Wonderful Chemistry tutor

Wonderful! My son is very happy with his session with Bob. He knew exactly what we were studying, had his own lesson plan and review lesson to see where he needed more work.

Irene, 4 lessons with Bob

Great Tutor, Always makes an extra effort!

Bob was a great help to me in Organic Chemistry 2. He was incredibly flexible in moving class hours based on my schedule. In addition, I could text him with homework problems at any time, and he would get back to me with answers really quickly. Bob is very patient, and has clear concise explanations. He's really encouraging too! I would definitely recommend him!
