Bio

Hi! I am Rob and I am currently a graduate student at University of Albany. I have tutored math both in high school and college. I have my B.A. in Mathematics from SUNY Potsdam and a M.A. in Mathematics from University at Albany. I tutored through various departments both at SUNY Potsdam and University at Albany.

Hi! I am Rob and I am currently a graduate student at University of Albany. I have tutored math both in high school and college. I have my B.A. in Mathematics from SUNY Potsdam and a M.A. in Mathematics from University at Albany. I tutored through various departments both at SUNY Potsdam and University at Albany.

I have taught a Preparation for Calculus course through Siena College. I love sharing knowledge and helping students get the same feeling from Mathematics as I do, or at least getting them to stop hating it and get an "aha!" moment. I hope to earn my PhD and become a Mathematics Professor one day in the future.

I posses an understanding of the material and the ability to pick up a textbook and help a student in need. Mathematics can be tough and it is by far not the most popular subject in school, so one of the responsibilities of the tutor is to make it look less terrifying and more enjoyable.

I not only enjoy helping students with math, but I also want the students to enjoy math as well. After reading my profile, if you would like help with any mathematical work and you think we would be a good match, please let me know! I'm open to trying it out first before setting sessions in stone, and my schedule is as flexible as you need it to be.

I also enjoy playing and tutoring chess. I have taught it for the past four summers. If you have any questions involving chess, please let me know!

I have tutored for several years and taught a Precalculus course at Siena college for Fall 2016/2017. In order to best understand the subject of Calculus, one needs to go through a thorough examination of Precalculus first. As I have both learned and taught the subject I enjoy it immensely.
