About Robert

I have been doing private SAT tutoring for more than 6 years. Over the past 6 years I have successfully tutored over a 100 students for the SAT, NYS Regents examinations, and preparing college essays with excellent results. References are available upon request.

Brief Background:

I am currently an MBA student with a concentration in accounting. I have been tutoring high school and college students for the past 6 years, in all variety of SAT prep, writing, college entrance exams and admissions essays. Furthermore, I work in the writing center for a local university, where I help students improve their writing, either for class or college essays. I help all types of students, whether looking to just get ahead or to improve grades.

My métier is helping high school and college students with difficult accounting courses and social studies courses. I have helped all my students track 4’s and 5’s on their AP history exams and my accounting students to score B- or higher in their respected classes. I work individually with each student to identify their problem areas and to address their specific needs.

I enjoy working with students and find great pleasure in seeing my students succeed. I'm patient and am skilled at explaining ideas and concepts in multiple ways to accommodate the needs of the students. I have a laid back demeanor, and I try to make studying accounting and history stress-free and enjoyable. I will always answer your calls and texts, and I'm great at responding to emergency "My problem set is due tomorrow?!?!" or "I have a test when?!" situations.

I originally went to school for social studies to become a social studies teacher. I earned my first bachelors in this subject and in secondary education; I also have a concentration in English. I passed my NYS teaching certification examination in both the fields of social studies and English. I also earned an MA in the field on American History and teach an American History courses at a local college on Long Island.

I have since earned a second bachelor degree in the field of accounting. I am currently working on completing my CPA certification and my MBA in taxation.

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.

American History

I am NYS certified in the subject of social studies. I have experience tutoring in AP History as well as home instruction for students who cannot attend class (through the school district). I also teach an undergraduate course in US History as well.

Financial Accounting

I am an accountant who is finishing up his masters program at a local college on Long Island, NY. I am also studying to complete my CPA examinations, so I can be a CPA accountant.

Managerial Accounting

I am an accountant who is finishing up his masters program at a local college on Long Island, NY. I am also studying to complete my CPA examinations, so I can be a CPA accountant.

SAT Math

I have been privately tutoring students for all portions of the SAT now for over five years, and I am quite familiar with the mathematics portion of the exam. Although some of my initial degrees are unrelated to the subject of mathematics, my latest (MBA for Accounting) required me to take several mathematics courses. Furthermore, since I already have a secondary education certification for New York State, I have now completed the CST portion for Business and Marketing (which entails accounting and business math) to go along with my original subject certifications. Lastly, when teaching multiple-step math problems, I scaffold the material to break it down to more simplified terms for students struggling to grasp the concepts. I feel that patience is a must when teaching math to students.

SAT Reading

I have 5+ years tutoring students for the SAT exam. I spend a lot of time teaching students how to identify what the question is asking because the SAT exam is quite different than traditional classroom examinations.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English and secondary education as well as a Master's degree.

SAT Writing

I have been tutoring SAT writing to students privately for the past 5 years. I currently teach an English writing course at Long Island University as an adjunct. My strength is my ability to scaffold complex materials into more simple concepts and have students organize their ideas thoroughly to avoid confusion.

Social Studies

I have a NYS certification in Social Studies as well as ELA for grades 7-12. This specific certification in social studies encompasses American History (NYS grades 7-8), Global Studies (9-10 NYS) as well as U.S. History and Government (grade 11).

World History

I have five years of tutoring experience in Global Studies (both Global Studies 1 and 2, 9th and 10th grade), especially for the New York State Regents exam. I use several mediums during tutoring sessions (worksheets, presentations, videos, primary sources).
