About Robert


Bio

My tutor expertise includes math (Pre-K to Calculus), English (concentrating on essay composition, sentence structure, grammar, reading, and language arts), ACT/SAT test preparation, chemistry, economics, and accounting. I also tutor any subject that mainly requires study skills and memorization, such as history, psychology, and biology/anatomy. In addition, I am a study...

I am a full-time professional tutor with a great deal of experience in both individual and group atmospheres. My tutor expertise includes math (Pre-K to Calculus), English (concentrating on essay composition, sentence structure, grammar, reading, and language arts), ACT/SAT test preparation, chemistry, economics, and accounting. I also tutor any subject that mainly requires study skills and memorization, such as history, psychology, and biology/anatomy. In addition, I am a study skills/time management coach. My easygoing approach to students’ difficulties along with my study/life skills coaching has helped students achieve unmeasured success. I regularly help students raise their grades by 2 or more letters. Recently, I helped a failing geometry student score an A- on his final and pass the course with a B. While living in California, I was employed by the San Diego Board of Education as a tutor for the AVID program, a group style tutoring initiative to assist high school students with difficulties and increase their motivation to learn. Upon my return to Knoxville, I began tutoring U.T. student athletes as an employee of the University of Tennessee. I also sub for Knox County Schools and a local private elementary school when my schedule permits. I am a devoted husband and step-father, and in my spare time I enjoy swimming, bicycling, reading science fiction novels, and studying advanced calculus.

Excellent Tutor

He is very knowledgeable and patient. He was very encouraging and went at my son's pace, making sure that he understood before moving on. He made sure that my son was involved in the solving of the problems, rather than just watching him demonstrate how to work the problems.

Rachel, 13 lessons with Robert

Knowledgeable and very nice

General study habits that produce success in Calculus and accounting at UT which Robert has tutored for a number of years. I look forward to better grades with Robert’s help.

Bob is an excellent tutor very knowledgeable and patient. My son enjoyed working with him, definitely will continue with him in the future. I will recommend Bob to everyone. Thanks for your help, Eduardo will see you soon.

Lourdes, 4 lessons with Robert

Very helpful!

We had a significant delay to our session (flat tire) and Bob was completely understanding and flexible, he was still able to meet with my daughter after we were able to get back on the road. He helped her gain a better understanding of factoring, and she felt more confident in her Algebra skills after working with him.

Christopher, 6 lessons with Robert

Excellent in math

Robert was great in math, helped with using the calculator, and remembering formulas. Very knowledgeable in the overall ACT exam. He is very easy to work with. Great in working out a schedule to accommodate my son's busy schedule.

We enthusiastically recommend Robert C. as a tutor

Our son is a high-achieving student. However, he was not scoring at the level he had hoped he would on the ACT. We contacted Bob and he quickly arranged to speak with us about our son's needs and offered to schedule his first tutoring session just a few days later. Further, he made it clear that he would be flexible in arranging tutoring times that worked with our son's schedule. Bob began by reviewing our son's previous test scores. Based on this analysis, he suggested a strategy that he felt would raise his score. Bob always listened carefully to our son's explanation of his current schedule and classwork burden. Based on these discussions at the end of every tutoring session, Bob would assign our son homework based on the areas where he felt our son could use his limited time most effectively. Under Bob's guidance, our son exceeded his goals on the ACT. With Bob's assistance and guidance, our son gained 5 points, raising his overall ACT score to 33. In the science section alone, he gained 8 points. In English, his scored increased by 6 points. We would be remiss if we did not mention a few other positive aspects of our experience with Bob. First, Bob is always on time! While this may seem like a small point, his punctuality was deeply appreciated. Second, Bob was willing to come to our home for tutoring, which was a key factor in our son being able to maximize the time he worked with Bob. We were always present in the house when Bob was tutoring and were consistently impressed by his kind, calm approach. Finally, during the time our son was working with him, we realized the PSAT date was fast approaching and asked Bob if he would tutor our son for the PSAT as well. Bob immediately procured the necessary student materials for the PSAT and incorporated this preparation into the tutoring sessions. Again, we would recommend Bob enthusiastically and without reservation. We are extremely grateful to him for helping our son achieve his goals.

Soft spoken laid back. Great teacher

Robert has helped my daughter with her math. She has shown her tips on using the TI84 calculator that will be very helpful to her. He encourages checking over your answers and helps find ways to do so effectively. He is helping her build confidence as well.

Made Math Concepts Easy

Robert C. effortlessly worked well with our son. He also made some difficult trig concepts easier for my son to understand and apply. Made sure he could double check his work. Very nice.
