Hes the best teacher i know. Lots knowledge !

I am excited for the next lesson One Day . Great teacher.

Bobby's rich life experience helps a lot with my English and cultural learning. He is very patient and nice all the time.

Bobby is very straight forward, patient, and understanding which is highly useful for my preferred method of learning. He catches on quickly to my strengths and weaknesses so we can identify what the true area of focus should be. he's also flexible and all for going at the customer's preferred pace. I am confident that Bobby will provide me with the tools I need to do well on the GMAT.

I am an adult returning to school and needed help with algebra. Bobby is great at explaining things so that I can understand. He makes me less nervous about learning algebra and I feel like I can actually learn this subject now.

He was very easy to talk to, and made my daughter feel at ease. Already found material for her to work on. Look forward to seeing her confidence grow!

Bobby is an amazing teacher who is extremely experienced. He responded quickly to my inquiries and was very accommodating to my schedule. He helped me prepare for a challenging entrance exam, which gave me the confidence to succeed. I highly recommend Bobby as a tutor for all grade levels for both math and english subjects.

Bobby did a wonderful job helping me understand the basic concepts of geometry.

After my first session with Bobby, he has proven himself the valuable tutor I need. Math is just one of the areas where I require help. When we met, he quickly assessed my strengths and shortcomings, steered me in the right direction, and without delay then proceeded to really teach me math. At the end of my fist hour and a half session, my next is already on the schedule and my confidence sky high! Thank you, Bobby!!!

Bobby is working with my 4th grade daughter and my 7th grade son. My son needed help with writing and Language arts and my daughter - a complete 3rd grade review. My daughter has learned so much just in a few lessons. Her cursive has improved tremendously, she can now recite her multiplication table fast without pausing. And she truly enjoys her lessons. He's patient with my son, who hates writing. He tries to mix it up to give him fun things to do. His past teaching experience really helps. We've tried other tutors but Bobby is the only tutor who I've seen immediate progress in my children. His prices are reasonable so it allows my children to get more time. Truly a blessing.

Bobby was very nice and helpful in my husband's ASVAB reviewing. Definitely setting up more sessions with Bobby this week :) Two thumbs up!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Bobby is a qualified and experienced teacher of both mathematics and English, and his specialty is test preparation.

Bobby has spent more than a thousand hours helping high school students prepare for standardized university entrance exams. Not only has WyzAnt has approved him for geometry, algebra II, statistics, precalculus, and calculus, but he has taught all these subjects in the classroom and in both in-person and online tutoring situations.

In addition to having taught Algebra 1 in high school and in remedial programs in college, Bobby has presented Algebra 1 in private lessons to dozens of learners from junior high school pupils through adults. Students and their parents are appreciative of his competence, thoroughness, and patience.

Bobby has taught algebra 2 in the classroom and has given hundreds of in-person and online private lessons both to students who have fallen behind and to students who want to move up from being second best in their class. His emphasis on mental computations and drill on the essential skills build students' confidence and ability to attack new challenges. Students who were previously weak in math like to tell about how they have begun helping their peers with homework.

As a teacher with academic qualifications and substantial experience teaching both English and math, Bobby now specializes in test preparation. His experience teaching physics and general science are especially helpful for preparing prospective enlistees show that they have what is needed to succeed in a wide variety of military occupational specialties.

Bobby has taught calculus in the classroom and in tutoring situations. He reports that students' problems with calculus rarely occur because the current lesson is too difficult. He says that problems usually come about because of some gap in the learner's background. Because students are not able to diagnose such gaps, they need extra help beyond what is available in the classroom. Bobby's extensive experience in giving private lessons makes him quick to spot problems and come up with help designed to the particular student's learning style.

Bobby holds a master's degree in economics and has taught elementary and intermediate price theory (microeconomics) and national income theory (macroeconomics) in the classroom and in tutoring situations. For 15 years he worked as an economic researcher.

Problems that students have studying economics often have more to do with mathematics than with social studies. Fortunately, Bobby has a bachelor's degree in math and has taught every math course from intermediate school through calculus. He understands your struggle and has solutions.

Bobby taught primary and intermediate subjects full-time in a self-contained classroom in elementary school for seven years. He had regular certificates (now expired) in K-6 and in early childhood. His has tutored all elementary subjects, including handwriting, reading, writing, spelling, science, math, social studies, and phonics.

When Bobby became an elementary teacher, he had already been a high school math teacher and an applied statistician. He is a mathematician's teacher of elementary math using algebra and geometry to support understanding of arithmetic. Mental computation is a subject in which he has had particular success, and parents and children are always delighted at how a solid foundation in mental arithmetic enhances a boy or girl's confidence and eagerness to take on new challenges. His experience has also taught him the patience to present the same material to the same student again and again while still keeping it fresh. In short, Bobby combines the skills of a master elementary school teacher with a mathematician's deep and broad knowledge of the subject.

In addition to having taught freshman composition in university, Bobby spent 18 years as a teacher of English as a second language. He has earned 24 graduate credits in English, and while he worked as a statistician, he not only made formal written reports of his findings but also edited reports written by less senior researchers. A master of grammar, usage, and syntax, Bobby is highly qualified to teach the multiple-choice sections of writing exams as well as essay writing.

Bobby has been a full-time teacher of English as a second language for nearly 20 years. In addition to his work in the classroom, Bobby has spent hundreds of hours giving in-person and online private lessons to male and female learners of all ages and all levels of English proficiency. His writing experience ranges from presenting the alphabet and capitalization to learners with no English proficiency all the way through to helping advanced students master the six-paragraph essay needed for university entrance. Although grammar is a particular specialty, students often associate him with his popular style of teaching pronunciation. They repeatedly make comments like, "I've had a dozen English teachers, but Bobby is the first one who has ever helped me with pronunciation," or "I wish I had had Bobby back when I was just beginning to learn English."

The topics typically covered in a course in finite mathematics are all matters that Bobby studied as a graduate student in economics and statistics. Model building is at the heart of economics, a subject in which he holds a master's degree. Matrix algebra is at the core of econometrics and linear algebra, two subjects Bobby studied in great detail as a graduate student. Linear programming is another topic that he studied in graduate courses in advanced microeconomic theory and in mathematical economics. Combinatorics is a standard part of high school Algebra II, and it is also part of the foundation of probability theory, which is the basis of statistics, Bobby's specialty. Before he worked as a statistician, Bobby took 18 graduate hours in statistics, plus two courses in econometrics. In short, Bobby is not only an outstanding teacher of mathematics, he is also master of the topics typically included in finite math courses.

Bobby holds a bachelor's degree with a major in mathematics and a minor in physics. His master's degree is in economics with a specialty in statisics. He has 24 graduate credits in English and 18 graduate credits in history and has taught these subjects both in the classroom and in tutoring situations. A specialist in test preparation, he reports that he especially likes helping young people with the GED because the learners are always highly motivated and because the variety of subjects helps keep sessions interesting.

Bobby has a bachelor's degree in math and has taught geometry in the classroom and in tutoring situations. He knows what difficulties students struggle with in geometry, and he has developed methods for helping them overcome those challenges. Learners often comment not only on his competence, but especially on his patient ways of presenting difficult concepts.

Bobby is the one-stop test specialist with academic qualifications and teaching experience in reading, writing, and math. His English experience includes teaching the standard university freshman writing class and teaching students of English as a second language to master the six- paragraph essay needed for admission to US universities. He is adept at helping students spot errors in usage that appear in the GMAT multiple-choice questions on writing.

For most college grads the biggest challenge on the GMAT is math. Bobby has a bachelor's degree in math and a master's degree in economics with specialties in mathematical economics and in statistics. He has taught all the math curriculum through calculus.

Having taught grammar to American students in high school and college and to ESL students of all ages and all levels of English proficiency, Bobby is a master of explaining English usage from the point of view of both native speakers and of adult learners of English. Students and parents value his way of presenting material in straightforward language and his ability to keep lessons fresh even while going over the same point many times.

Bobby has taught a 27-hour class in GRE preparation numerous times, and he has given private lessons to many students preparing for this exam. Bobby teaches all parts of the GRE: reading, writing, and math.

Prospective graduate students need to prepare for all sections of the GRE to become familiar with the exam's somewhat peculiar ways of framing questions. As for reviewing the material to be tested, students usually need to devote most of their effort to the quantitative section for the simple reason that their math may have gotten a bit rusty in the years since high school. Fortunately, Bobby is a teacher of algebra, geometry, and statistics, and he is skilled at helping students refresh their math skills in preparation for graduate study.

When Bobby first became a primary school teacher, he devoted himself to improving his handwriting. Having previously been a math teacher, he was already good at drawing arcs of circles and line segments, the two components of all manuscript letters. Later, when he was assigned to teach intermediate grades, he had to improve his cursive. He took several courses in handwriting and in calligraphy. The other teachers in his school, women with twenty to forty years experience, used to have the children copy letters from a handwriting textbook, but Bobby was able to tell the pupils that they should simply copy exactly what he had written on the board.

His experience tutoring handwriting lead him to report that improvements are quick and substantial when a competent instructor takes time for one-on-one instruction.

For the seven years ending last month, I taught English as a second language at a university where I prepared students to take the EILTS or the TOEFL so that they could qualify to take for-credit university courses. In addition to my classroom work, I also worked privately with students preparing for the IELTS. Some of them were preparing for the general version of the test so that they could qualify for a job or immigrate to countries such as Australia. I also helped students prepare for the academic version, not only for entrance to university for their first degree but also very advanced students who were preparing for advanced medical training in Britain.

Bobby took two graduate courses in linear algebra and received two grades of A. The teacher of those courses offered to be his major professor if he would pursue a Ph.D. in the mathematics department. In addition, as a graduate student he applied linear algebra in four econometrics courses in the economics department and several courses in theoretical statistics in the mathematics department.

During the years when Bobby was a primary teacher, he taught both first and second grades. Having had a strong interest in phonetics and phonemics since taking a short course in the International Phonetic Alphabet when he was in high school, he really took to teaching phonics. Over the years he has taken several courses in teaching reading, and when he became a primary teacher, he had extensive instruction specifically in teaching phonics. In fact, his interest in the sounds of English and their representation with letters of the alphabet was an important part of his motivation for switching from teaching primary grades to teaching English as a second language.

Parents of young children that Bobby has tutored in phonics, report that his enthusiasm for the task rubs off on the children.

He looks forward to helping other children with this subject that many teachers find boring.

Bobby earned a physics minor as a part of his bachelor's degree. He currently teaches physics in high school.

As a retired math and English teacher who now specializes in test preparation, Bobby has strong qualifications for Praxis I, and he has experience preparing students for that exam on "core academic skills". Other tests he teaches include the GRE and the GMAT.

Math: Bobby teaches all elementary and high school math in addition to calculus, linear algebra, and statistics. His academic qualifications include a bachelor's degree in math and a master's degree in economics with specialties mathematical economics and statistics. He spent 15 years as a full-time applied statistician. He has (now expired) licenses to teach high school math in Illinois and the District of Columbia.

Writing: As a full-time teacher of English as a second language for twenty years, Bobby taught writing to learners at all levels of English proficiency--especially students preparing to enter U.S. and British universities, graduate schools, and professional schools. He has taught freshman composition in college. His academic qualifications include 24 graduate credits in English, including modern English grammar and writing for business and industry.

Reading: In addition to his 24 hours of graduate credit in English, Bobby has also earned 18 hours of graduate credit in history. Bobby has long experience teaching the reading sections of the SAT, the GRE, and the GMAT. During his career as a teacher of English as a second language, he taught reading to students who were about to enter US universities and graduate schools.

Bobby is both a grade school teacher and a math teacher. Besides having taught intermediate grades, he has taught all high school math subjects in the classroom and in tutoring situations. Parents and junior high school students appreciate his patience and his ability establish rapport as well as his ability to make arithmetic and algebra accessible.

Bobby has taught precalculus in the classroom and has given hundreds of in-person and online private lessons. He knows the difficulties students face and how to help them recover.

The first half of the corse is a review of algebra and an extension beyond the analytic geometry taught in Algebra 2. Bobby has taught that material many times in algebra classes and in precalculus.

Trigonometry, which usually makes up most of the second half of the course, is a challenge for many students because it is very different from their previous experience and because it involves considerable memorization. Over the years Bobby has developed methods that help students overcome these difficulties.

Bobby took two graduate courses in probability and ten in statistics and econometrics. He is qualified to help students understand the various probability distributions that underlie statistical theory.

For fifteen years he worked as a professional statistician routinely applying principles of probability. As a math teacher he has taught probability as a part of algebra courses and statistics courses.

Unlike most SAT prep teachers, Bobby is both a math teacher and an English teacher, and he teaches all parts of the SAT exam, reading, writing, and math.

Bobby has spent more than a 1000 hours in the classroom teaching preparation for the SAT and more than a hundred hours tutoring SAT prep.

Bobby has spent well over 1000 hours in the classroom teaching SAT math in addition to hundreds of hours in private lessons. He knows the peculiarities of the test and how students need to get ready to face them. He prepares students who are looking for top scores and students who need help to achieve a barely average score.

Many times Bobby has taught a 27 hour course on all parts of the SAT. During his 15 years as a teacher of English as a second language he helped numerous students prepare for university entrance exams. He is especially strong in helping students improve vocabulary, perform on the multiple-choice questions on English usage and syntax, and quickly write well organized short essays.

Many students like to work with Bobby because they find exam preparation is more efficient when one tutor handles all sections of the exam.

Bobby has spent more than 1,000 hours teaching SAT prep. He is familiar with all the tricks.

Bobby holds a bachelor's degree in math and a master's degree in economics with specialties in mathematical economics and statistics. For fifteen years he worked full-time in applied statistics conceiving and designing research projects, supervising data collection, analyzing results, reporting findings orally and in writing, and editing reports written by less senior researchers.

Bobby reports that very often the stumbling blocks in statistics courses do not derive from especially challenging aspects of the lesson at hand but from the students' being somewhat rusty on some bit of algebra in a course taken years earlier. Bobby is a math teacher who is adept at diagnosing difficulties that students face and presenting mini lessons to fill in gaps in students' background.

In short, Bobby is both a math teacher and a statistician who helps students master a sometimes dreaded course and gain the confidence that makes going to class a satisfying experience.

Several parts of the TOEFL are far different from anything most students have ever faced, and so help from an experienced teacher familiar with the exam is essential. Bobby is a retired teacher of English as a second language and now specializes in test preparation. During his 20 years as a full-time teacher of English as a second language, he helped many students prepare to take the the TOEFL both in small groups and in private lessons. His students often make favorable comments about his ways of teaching grammar, oral presentations, writing techniques, pronunciation, vocabulary, and general test taking skills.

Bobby has taught trigonometry in college and has tutored many students in the subject. He knows how to help students get through such challenges as memorizing formulas, applying those formulas in different situations, and using the graphing calculator. Students are appreciative of his skill and patience.
