I have a B.S. in math with a minor in philosophy, and a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, plus considerable graduate training.

I am a retired high school teacher, certified in special education, secondary and middle school math, science, business and computers. I have a B.S. in math with a minor in philosophy, and a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, plus considerable graduate training. I taught math and science, including prealgebra, algebra, geometry, etc., and math for students with learning disabilities. My learning support classes included remedial language arts with emphasis on reading comprehension, spelling and vocabulary, and grammar and composition.

Before becoming a teacher I worked as an IT (computer) consultant for 30 years, which gave me strong skills in using and teaching business computer tools such as MS Word, Excel, accounting tools, database design (Oracle) and programming.

The most satisfying work I have done has been my 20+ years teaching children and adults (and their parents) with autism spectrum disorders (autism, Asperger’s, PDD) and ADHD. I have training and experience with Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

I am available to tutor at any mutually agreeable location including my home or yours. I’m also available for home schooling support and tutoring.

Great and patient tutor

Robert is great. He's very patient, he lets his student think about problems before giving out hints. He also recommends other approaches to some problems. He gives out homework and review sheets so he can see the progress and what other areas the student is still having trouble in.

Max, 12 lessons with Robert

Robert is so patient & thorough with my daughter.

Robert is taking time to explore my daughter's strengths & weaknesses. His approach is helping her to feel comfortable about asking questions. I really like the HW assignments too. I am very hopeful about my daughter gaining knowledge & confidence with her math skills.
