About Robert

I have been teaching for over a decade. I have cultivated a love for teaching from the time I was in high school and I love helping people find their way to a better understanding of the world around them. I began teaching courses for the Army while enlisted. After an honorable discharge from service in 2008, I got my teaching license in Texas where I taught for two years. Following that, I moved to Virginia and got my VA teaching license as well. I was named the High school teacher of the year. I have taught at both the middle and high school levels.

I have high expectations for myself and, therefore, have high expectations for my students. I approach all my students with respect and honesty and expect the same in return. I know that every student can be successful and I am here to guide my students toward that success. I encourage open feedback in order to help me become the best tutor I can be.

I am certified in Biology, Earth Science, and middle school science. I have had experience teaching ecology and environmental science, as well. I use a variety of approaches to teaching and tutoring, knowing that each student is an individual with individual needs. I want students to take ownership of their own learning so I favor strategies that help information stick for the long run.

My primary tutoring location is online. I normally tutor on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons but I welcome individual questions about times and subjects. I appreciate as much advance notice as possible in the case of cancellations.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I have taught high school biology for six years. I passed qualifying exams in both Texas and Virginia. I prefer for students to learn through inquiry and exploration. I enjoy assisting them through this process.

Ecology

I have taught environmental science for five years. I enjoy nature and being outdoors and bring that excitement with me. I prefer for students to learn through inquiry and experience so I design lessons and sessions to facilitate student learning through those means.
