About Robert

I have over a decade of experience in the classroom as a Chemistry teacher in AISD and as a Chemistry Content Coordinator at the National Math and Science Initiative where I designed lessons and training for teacher on a national scale. I am a very passionate educator and am well equipped to provide multiple approaches and entry points for students to access the content. Chemistry is often made difficult by teachers who fail to help the individual student make connections and develop their problem solving skills. The way I teach and tutor is meant to help the student grow as a learner, although I understand the immediate goals of just making it to the next test! I am most effective when the student is prepared to openly discuss the extent and limits of their content knowledge and is interested in truly understanding the material rather than going through a series of homework/practice problems. I always prepare additional examples and can compile helpful online resources for the student to continue the journey of their own learning process both prior to and after the tutoring session(s). I enjoy creating focused environment that is also filled with silliness and laughter. Any student who comes home to yet more instruction is looking for more engagement than a dry review. I am animated and energetic, which lends to a great working tutor-student relationship.
