About Robert

I have a masters in Mathematics with a focus on mathematics education. I have been teaching at a University level for the last 8 years. I have spent the last four years studying mathematics education. Working one-on-one with my students has always been my favorite part about teaching, and I am hoping to continue that with tutoring. Honestly, I enjoy tutoring so much that I have even been known to volunteer tutor.

To me mathematics is not about following steps of a procedure, but about problem solving and analytic thinking. I believe that once a person that struggles with mathematics sees that in action, mathematics becomes much more manageable. I teach mathematics for understanding, so that the skills learned by doing mathematics translate into useful skills applicable to the real world.

I have worked with students of every level and background, and I enjoy the challenge that every type of student brings to the table. Though I have been focused on teaching at the university level, the most enjoyable classes I have taught have been with highly motivated high school students from inner city schools. I have also taught a mathematics SAT prep course.

Great tutor! — Robert is a very patient and caring tutor. He understands his student's math gaps and provides instruction that is tailored to their learning styles. He always has a plan of how to approach math instruction based on anecdotal observations and assessments of the student's strengths and weaknesses. His understanding of mathematical concepts is quite strong. My daughter feels that she is learning a l ...
