About Robby

I've cultivated my own approach to tutoring over the last two years, and I've found the best way to teach students is to encourage agency in their education. Students entering college are often at a disadvantage when they find that material is no longer spoon-fed to them, and that they are responsible for their own academic success. I prepare my students for this inevitability by instilling them with life-long study skills that they can apply both in and outside the classroom so that they can succeed beyond the subjects in which I tutor. I offer quality feedback and work with students, parents, and teachers to set and reach academic goals.

I have a strong writing background, and I've tutored in writing, English, math, and test prep since my junior year in college. I first worked as a writing tutor at my university, helping students of all academic and professional backgrounds develop their approaches to structure and composition. Since graduating, I've tutored as both a private party and contractor with different tutoring companies. I also work as a substitute teacher, and I have experience working with students of varying ages on many different subjects.

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.
