About Robert

Please do not waste your money on a tutor who has a low hourly rate but merely dabbles in test prep. On the other hand, please do not waste your money on a tutor from one of the large test prep companies whose rate is $200 to $300 per hour.

I do not dabble. I am an expert. I know the SAT, PSAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, HSPT and various SAT subject tests backwards, forwards and sideways.

A La Salle College High School and University of Notre Dame graduate, and a former US Navy officer, I have more than eleven years of tutoring experience, with a primary focus on the SAT, on which I consistently score a 1600, and the ACT, on which I consistently score a 36. I am an expert at all sections of the SAT, PSAT and ACT. I am also thoroughly familiar with the Math level 1 and level 2, and US and World History SAT subject tests, the GRE and GMAT, and the various private high school entrance tests.

I customize a course for each student to provide thorough preparation for all sections of the SAT or ACT or both. Lessons are two hours, and can be held at the student's home or other convenient location conducive to study.

I have developed tools to improve the quality of instruction I offer in all areas of the SAT and ACT and other standardized tests. All of my SAT and ACT prep students have achieved substantial and statistically significant improvement in their SAT or ACT scores as compared to a baseline score.

SAT or ACT scores and high school GPA are the most important elements in a student's college admissions portfolio. Further, financial aid is highly indexed to SAT or ACT scores. So preparing for Test Day is both wise and a worthwhile investment. I guide my students, tailoring my approach based on the feedback I receive, through the process of improving their reasoning and mastering the material presented during lessons, which yields improved outcomes on their test scores.

Contact me today to start toward being confident and prepared on Test Day!

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.
