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. I also have experience working in optics...

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!

Patient and good teaching

I am writing this review from the parents point of view for the physics tutor section Robin did on 10/03/21, 10:00 pm. Robin was very patience and clearly explain the problem and walk through the solution steps by steps to make sure the student understand. To help the student learn, Robin invite the student to engage in solving the problem and not just doing the work for the student. It is the essence of great tutoring. As the parent, I encourage Robin to engage the student more so they would truly benefit and learn from the tutoring section.

Travis, 2 lessons with Robin

Very patient and Knowledgeable

Robin was very patient explaining some Ap physics concept to my son who finds anything math related difficult. He spoke so well of Robin's ability to come down to his level and get the job done. This is our first lesson and will be having more!

Constance, 5 lessons with Robin

Solid

In one hour he's put me on much better footing in my calc-based physics class in college, effectively explains problems, can answer any additional questions you have, & follows up after the fact if anything goes awry in the session itself.

Alex, 1 lesson with Robin

Excellent teacher

He taught AP Physics online to my daughter. He was very patient and knew exactly what she needed to focus on. He is very knowledgable, accessible and flexible. We look forward to many more lessons with him.

Sabrina , 3 lessons with Robin

Incredible Physics Tutor

My high school student eagerly looks forward to his AP Physics tutoring sessions with Robin S., because Robin is able to break complex physics concepts into smaller more manageable parts. Prior to teaching a new concept, the tutor assesses my student's background knowledge and then decides how to teach the concept. Furthermore, he is an extremely patient tutor, who ensures that my child understands how to solve problems and even more importantly focuses on higher lever learning by make sure my child comprehends the physics and math concepts associated with the problems. He accomplishes this by showing students the steps to tackle physics problems and appealing to different learning styles. He is an INCREDIBLE physics tutor!

He was fantastic!!

He was so helpful and made sure I thoroughly understood what he was teaching. He helped me with my forces and motion physics homework. He even left me a pdf with steps to help me solve physics problems. I would definitely recommend Robin!

Abigail, 5 lessons with Robin

Tudor of mathematics and surrounding fields

He is very knowledgeable in his field and has greatly helped me in my collage studies. He explains things in a very understandable way. He is and would be a asset to anyone in need of a great Tudor.

Earl, 15 lessons with Robin

Very resourceful tutor

Robin explains the lesson and even teaches other functions as well. My child hadn't taken any trigonometry as yet in order to complete her physics assignment & he taught trigonometry to her first so she could understand physics better.

Eunica , 6 lessons with Robin

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Robin was knowledgeable and explained multiple times until I understood the concept. He was very patient, helpful, flexible and easy to understand. Definitely recommend him.

Kavitha, 2 lessons with Robin

Experienced and Knowledgeable Tutor

Robin is very helpful and is quick to help with any question you may have. His tutoring through an online platform is no different from in person tutoring and he doesn't waste any time in helping. He explains concepts very well and knows what he is doing. Thank you for your help!
