Medical Student with Extensive Teaching Experience
Hello! Whether teaching private and group piano lessons, biology and anatomy laboratories at UNLV, or private lessons in biology, chemistry, and organic chemistry, I love helping students fulfill their potential. Even while managing large retail stores, I found the greatest satisfaction in teaching my staff the nuances of running a business. Perhaps this seems an odd diversity of subject matter; I have had two complete careers already and I am now in medical school preparing for a third....
Hello! Whether teaching private and group piano lessons, biology and anatomy laboratories at UNLV, or private lessons in biology, chemistry, and organic chemistry, I love helping students fulfill their potential. Even while managing large retail stores, I found the greatest satisfaction in teaching my staff the nuances of running a business. Perhaps this seems an odd diversity of subject matter; I have had two complete careers already and I am now in medical school preparing for a third. Thus, I have had the honor of teaching a multitude of subjects over the years.
In terms of teaching style, I make an effort to adapt what I do to what will work best for each student. No two students are alike, and therefore no one teaching style can truly be considered "the best" or perhaps even superior to another. I push my students to think and to work hard to become their best self. I have always believed that success is locked up in every person, it is simply a matter of finding the key to unlock the door.
Math is a subject I truly enjoy teaching, and one that I had to relearn myself when I went back to school in 2015. I am therefore aware of the challenges that the subject can present to student of all ages.
As a pre-medical student, in order to gain admittance to medical school, I had to master biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, anatomy, and a number of obscure subjects- that was just to get into medical school. While I was learning myself, I was hired to teach nursing-level science labs at UNLV. I therefore have not only mastered a wide variety of scientific topics, but have already taught them at the college level.
I worked as a ghost writer for almost two years, helping graduate students prepare manuscripts for publication. During that time I completed 2400 pages of material with a revision request rate of less than five percent.

Robert has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 12 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Robert has been a great tutor. He is really funny and keeps our tutoring sessions light. He focuses more on strategy and learning on how to take the test versus just learning the material, which has been helpful. In the past month of working with him, I have seen noticeable improvements on how I approach each passage and question, and picking up cues on what the question is really testing. Robert has also been really helpful on the personal side of studying as well. When I learned that my first MCAT scores were not what I needed, he took the time out of his day to meet with me and talk through what steps I needed to take going forward. He helped me plan out a timeline for the next few months, and even went through the course catalog at my university to see what classes I could take that would help improve my weak spots. I highly recommend Robert if you are looking for a tutor who will help you learn how to beat the test, not just cram information into your brain.Melina, 41 lessons with Robert

Robert was great at acknowledging my concerns towards chemistry and really went into depth on each problem so that I fully understood the concept. I physically felt my brain expanding with each problem we went over and feel more capable in my abilities after our session.Laura, 1 lesson with Robert
Robert is a fantastic mentor for MCAT preparation. Not only does he significantly help with strategical approaches and study methods, but he notably helps students raise their confidence for the long and difficult exam. I have seen my score remarkably improve over the course of a few weeks. I have additionally changed my thinking pattern and attitude towards the test, which has been extremely important to me. Robert is a very caring person and will always go out of his way to make sure his student is happy with their personalized study plan. He is very light-hearted and will make every session interesting and engaging. I highly recommend Robert for anyone needing guidance for the MCAT.Sydney, 32 lessons with Robert

We worked on a writing assignment and I got a lot of helpful tips to improve my writing. It has been great working with Robert, as he takes the time to provide examples for strategies he recommends to use. This makes it very helpful for the student to implement it.Eyasu, 20 lessons with Robert
