About Robert


Bio

Hello my name is Robert, and I am a student at Texas Tech University, I have been tutoring for 4 years now. I am currently a senior studying biology and chemistry with the intention of attending graduate school for cell and molecular biology or biotechnology. I want to do research on what is collectively known as parasites and their ability to alter host gene expression for application in both research and drug discovery.

Hello my name is Robert, and I am a student at Texas Tech University, I have been tutoring for 4 years now. I am currently a senior studying biology and chemistry with the intention of attending graduate school for cell and molecular biology or biotechnology. I want to do research on what is collectively known as parasites and their ability to alter host gene expression for application in both research and drug discovery. Prior to attending Texas tech, I worked as an EMT in both clinical and emergency settings.

I offer academic tutoring in the following subjects: biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, molecular biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, immunology, anatomy, pathophysiology, physiology, abnormal psychology, neurobiology, zoology, nutrition, statistics, NREMT exam prep for Basic/Intermediate to Paramedic/Advanced, Paramedic and Nursing Cardiology, and pretty much any other related courses.

I use methods such as practice tests, concept mapping, and video tutorials if necessary. Most students are unaware of how many resources there are online for them to use in their classes such as online lectures, flashcards, games, etc.

It is my personal belief that anyone can learn and master anything, no matter their starting point or natural ability. Anecdotally speaking, 9/10 students I have worked with have no serious issues with learning. They were simply never taught how to study.

In my tutoring sessions, I teach two things. The first is the information itself and the intuitive understanding behind said material, and the second is how to take a large amount of complicated, disorganized information and break it down into small, useful, easy-to-follow sets of ideas that lead from point-to-point emphasizing the bigger picture as well as abstract application.

The most effective way of doing this is by using both concept mapping and practice exams; my tutoring sessions rely very heavily on these practices. I find that it generally takes 1-2 two-hour tutoring sessions to cover one chapter's worth of material, given the nature of these subjects.

I will not rush through the sessions, ensuring that we cover all the material. In education, quality trumps quantity. I will not simply explain the bare minimum for students to “pass” their quizzes, exams, courses, and etc. We will not move on to new material until I feel comfortable about a student's understanding of the material.

I will NOT, under any circumstances do online homework, exams, essays, papers, or any other form of academic dishonesty, I feel the need to be upfront about this as I have had problematic situations in the past arise from this misconception.

When I am not teaching and studying, I love to watch college football, hunting, fishing, hiking, video games, and playing guitar.

Study Skills

As noted in all my previous tutoring subjects I am very interested in quantifying the extent to which various pedagogical techniques work to improve not only comprehension but mastery as well. Most of these techniques tend to be practice tests, concept mapping, flash cards, comprehensive questioning, and essay writing. Theses are all active learning techniques and require both understanding of larger and smaller pictures at the conceptual level.

Genetics,

Genetics

I have been tutoring in genetics for almost a year now. As I have been pursing a career in molecular biology, genetics has been essential for me and my career. Like most sciences people underestimate the need for practice, especially with the many equations and "reactions" of DNA and RNA. I offer many many practice questions and resources that many students are unaware of, both in person and online.
Microbiology,

Microbiology

I've taught microbiology to both majors and non majors/ nursing students. So I've gotten pretty used to building the material from the ground up and, like all of biology I focus on the bigger picture/ structure and function of everything. I also teach immunology and serology as this has been one of my main areas of research (both come hand in hand with each other )
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

I have tutored students in organic chemistry for 2 semesters now. I think it's difficult for most because they are unaware of the more mechanical ways of doing reactions/configuration as opposed to trying to mentally flip the molecules in their head, I think the best and the ONLY way to do well in any chemistry course as well as ochem is to practice practice and practice. There is no substitute for that, therefore the majority of my sessions are based on this principle

ADHD

I've worked at my local university with students who were ADD/ADHD. I've used color coordination and physical involvement for students as well as repetitive statement. I also help students with study habits, distraction assessment, and schedule maintenance.

Awesome tutor!

He makes learning the material for upper level courses seem very easy by using different techniques! Within an hour we covered the material for two chapters and I was able to learn and recall it very well. He is patient and willing to go over the material if you have any questions! I definitely recommend contacting him if you need any one on one help.

Great tutor

Robert was a great help. i was looking for help in the course Chem 3310, Molecular Biochemistry, and laid out the material in a unique fashion that really helps you understand concepts. It was a nice change to review the material through drawings and discussion, versus reading over definitions from the book.

Makes things easier

I have really been struggling with my biology class. Most of the time it sounds like a foreign language. Robert cleared up a lot for me and helped me to understand some of the hardest concepts. He also made sure that I understood it completely

Disappointed

He showed up late and then proceeded to explain a problem that was on a test I just took because he didn't want to work on my homework. He worked the problem on the board and the work he was doing wasn't even necessary. Waste of my time and so I left. I am extremely frustrated now.

Fantastic tutor! 10/10 would recommend.

Robert is a phenomenal tutor! Very easy to contact and responded to my initial message almost instantly. Genetics is a difficult subject to learn and he did an awesome job explaining certain topics in an easy to follow format. He is very knowledgeable about the subject he was teaching and also very easy to relate to. He asked questions throughout to keep me actively involved in the lesson which was very beneficial to my learning experience. I learned more in a two hour session than I did in months of class. 10/10 would recommend to a friend. Thanks Robert!!

My son learned more in Robert's tutoring session than he did all year in his chemistry class. He regrets not having contacted him sooner. Robert explained the concepts in a way that made sense to our son. We are very grateful to him!
