About Robert

*Disclaimer, due to my busy schedule, and to avoid additional time commuting, I will be providing lessons only via Wyzant online tutoring. It's a really good service, but keep that in mind when choosing me.

My name is Rob. I was a high school chemistry teacher from 2010 through 2014. I currently work in technical industry now, but still love teaching.

I have spent a lot of time planning engaging lessons, developing strategies, analogies, and experimental designs to make learning chemistry lasting and meaningful. Many people are discouraged by chemistry in an academic setting, and I have spent a ton of time making this subject accessible.

Chemistry is a lot more than just working out problem sets in the back of each chapter. While I am still very useful for going through this kind of work, I think what I can contribute over other tutors is finding more meaningful ways of approaching the content.

I have also worked with an extremely diverse set of students over the years. I have taught honors classes, general classes, and classes with many students having diverse IEP's. It was very important that I differentiated the approach for learning based on the learner, and this is something I have specialized in during my time in the classroom.

If you think I would make an excellent fit for you, please contact me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chemistry

I have a BS in chemistry and an MA in teaching. I taught public high school for 4 years. I have a vast array of teaching strategies and I understand the needs for different learners. I am also familiar with how chemistry tests are constructed and what specifics to look for when studying.

Guitar

I am a guitar player of 10 years specializing in Gypsy Jazz music, style of Django Reinhardt. I've played professionally among many of the top players in NYC.

To name drop a little on some of the world class guitar players of this style in the city that I've played with: Stephane Wrembel, Olli Soikelli, Darius Scheider, Roy Williams, and Tim Clement.

Learning with me will not focus on reading music, but on emphasizing on time and ear training.

I've been a student of Stephane's for about 8 years now, and I think I have quite a lot to share.

Organic Chemistry

I took organic chemistry 1, organic chemistry 2, and advanced organic chemistry in university.
