About Robin


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 in industry.

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.

I'm available to tutor in person as well as online via Wyzant's Online Tutoring platform, and I'm available most hours of the day and night.

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

I've studied, worked in, and tutored physics for the last 18 years. There's nothing I enjoy more than physics. My work experience in physics includes work at NASA and in industry. I've taught physics at the undergraduate level and have tutored students in high school and college. Whether your taking calculus based physics or algebra based physics, I can help you. Whether it's AP Physics, Physics 101, Physics 102, optics, or electrodynamics, I can help. I can bring my enthusiasm for physics to bear to help you. I'm available most hours of the day and am happy to tutor in person or via Wyzant's Online tutoring platform. I hope to hear from you!

Knowledgeable and patient

Taught precalculus. My son was very satisfied with the discussion. He clearly has experience to articulate concepts. We are probably going to work with Robin through the rest of the session. I would recommend him 100%

Arun, 9 lessons with Robin

Very patient and kind tutor who is passionate about Calculus!

Robin went over several topics with my son tonight and although this was his first lesson, he learned quite a bit! We were in a bind since he had a test coming up in two days, but Robin was willing to work us into his schedule not only today but tomorrow (the night before the test) as well. We are so thankful to have found him! He arrived early and was ready to dive right in to the subject and find out where my son needed help! Robin is very nonjudgemental and my son said he never felt "stupid" asking any questions regarding things he didn't understand. We are looking forward to another great lesson tomorrow and more in the future, I'm sure! I would highly recommend Robin for any CCP / AP Calculus class work or anything else he tutors in!

Sheri, 2 lessons with Robin

Great teacher! Very nice!

Robin S. helped me with general physics. He helped me work out 6 homework problems. Now I have a better understanding of the kinematics equations and when to put them to use. He is very kind and patient as we worked through the problems! 10/10, would recommend to anyone needing physics/math related help!

Alexus, 6 lessons with Robin

Knowledgeable and great scheduling

He helped me with sinusoidal modeling and was great at providing visual examples. We were able to cover the topic in one hour which was great! I plan to schedule another appointment!

Carissa , 2 lessons with Robin

Amazing help right before my final !!

Robin was patient and very helpful in aiding to me understanding even the simplest things. He went out of his way to break down each question I had and throughly explained ever !

Clarissa, 1 lesson with Robin

Excellent Calculus Tutor

Robin sat there and answered my daughter's questions until she fully understood topics including: limit / derivatives and / equation of the tangent line instantaneous velocity. My daughter had a "Math High" afterwards because she was able to go so deep, very fast. I guess he even explained his most complex math problem ever which she thought was fun.

Tara, 4 lessons with Robin

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, 8 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.

Nora, 1 lesson with Robin

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!!
