Bio

Hi, I'm Robin. I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics with a minor in math from the University of Akron. I also have 5 years of graduate work in Optical Sciences in the College of Optical Sciences, at the University of Arizona. I have several years of teaching experience, both in a one-on-one setting as a tutor for high school and college students, and in a classroom setting teaching college level math, optics, and physics as a teaching assistant.

Hi, I'm Robin. I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics with a minor in math from the University of Akron. I also have 5 years of graduate work in Optical Sciences in the College of Optical Sciences, at the University of Arizona. I have several years of teaching experience, both in a one-on-one setting as a tutor for high school and college students, and in a classroom setting teaching college level math, optics, and physics as a teaching assistant. I also have experience working in optics at NASA and universities and working in applying physics to aerospace projects for a defense contractor.

My teaching is focused on the student's unique needs, and I like to use real world examples to bring a more clear understanding of theories and principles of optics, physics, and math to my students. I want my students to not only understand what they're reading and solving but to also be able to visualize what the subject matter is telling them and to understand why that subject matter is important and useful.

Please note that I cannot help my students take tests. I cannot make any exceptions on this point.

Very Reliable and Dedicated

Mr.Robin tutored me even though he was sick, when I asked him if he would like to stop early, he said no and instead pointed out some important questions and explained them thoroughly, I couldn't ask for a better tutor.

NAIJUMON, 4 lessons with Robin

Excellen, knowledgeable tutor

Robin is flexible depending on the needs of the student. Very knowledgeable and communicates well to plan the session. Will continue to use Robin as a support.

Tracy, 7 lessons with Robin

Very knowledgeable and approachable Tutor

Robin is very knowledgeable and approachable. My sixteen-year-old daughter was very comfortable interacting with him. I appreciate that he was willing to come to our home and would definitely use his Services again. Very pleased.

Robin is AMAZING!

I've tried 4 Physics tutors over the course of a week and thought I just wasn't cut out to understand the subject, until I found Robin. He is patient, through, clear and makes complex topics easy to grasp. HIGHLY recommend!!

Joanna, 2 lessons with Robin

Conveys material in easy to understand format

Good listener. Answers all my questions. Gives a great background to get me going with the homework problems! Not only knows the material, but also does a wonderful job of sharing his vast knowledge.

Jacqueline, 15 lessons with Robin

Very good and knowledgable!

Helped me understand everything I need to know! Got a great grade on my test after being tutored by Robin. Good at explaining and breaking things down. Simplified everything so that it was easier to understand.

Jackie, 3 lessons with Robin

Knowlegeable in physics

My daughter felt her session with Robin increased her understanding of wavelengths, rotational inertia and gravitational motion. She found him helpful and the wyzant online experience was interactive and facilitated learning experience.

Rhonda, 2 lessons with Robin

Helped Me Understand

Robin taught so many things. He taught me how to work with momentum and Impulse. He also helped me really understand how to use the formulas properly during the lesson. I am looking forward to another session soon.

Fernando, 5 lessons with Robin

Very knowledgeable and patient!

He's tutoring me in College Physics and Pre Calculus. Only had our first session but it went great and I learned a good bit from only an hour spent. He was ready on time and very helpful and willing to work whatever problem you throw his way.

Patrick, 11 lessons with Robin

Great math tutor!

Robin is a very patient and knowledgeable math tutor. He is dedicated to his student's success, and it shows! He is great at filling in the gaps if you have forgotten some previously learned concepts. I also appreciate his ability to bring together the 'bigger picture', and demonstrate how what you are currently learning relates to past and future topics. I highly recommend Robin as a tutor!
