“**Great teacher!**”

I am passionate about giving high school and college students the skills they need to grow "from good to great" in mathematics. For seven years, I have been doing this in the Buckley/Bonney Lake area where I live and in the White River School District where I am fairly well known. Although I do not hold a teaching certificate, I am a certified

*My rate is $50 per session (not per hour). From my experience, one hour is never enough and more than two hours can be too much. A typical session with me is about two hours.*

Bob provided easy to understand answers for complex rules. He covered a lot of information while ensuring each step was understood. It is obvious that he has a great understanding of Calculus and presented it in a simple way.

When we first hired Bob our daughter had a D in math because she could not understand it. After Bob started tutoring her our daughters grade has improved to a B+ and more importantly she understands it! Thanks Bob!!!

Bob seems like he knowledgable in what he teaches, and is patient with his student. Will definitely come back to tutor with him again.

Bob is awesome. He has been working with my son on calculus. I truly believe we could not ask for a better tutor. He was prepared and even gave my son things to work on, which was a big help!

Bob is so knowledgable, and patient. I was so comfortable at first session. He doesn't hesitate to explain and repeat. I am so glad to have him as my tutor.

Bob was extremely knowledgable in the topic he was tutoring my son on. He was very encouraging and patient as well. Definitely will schedule him on a consistent basis next fall.

Bob really helped me get through my "business calculus" class. It’s been a while since my last math class, and Bob was able to quickly refresh my algebra and trig skills as needed for calculus.

Bob spends a good amount of his own time prepping for your sessions so he knows exactly how to explain the subject to you when you arrive. He gave me more in depth explanations than I was getting from my classroom instructor or online. This enabled me to more fully understand the concepts. He also gave me great study tips which helped not only with calculus, but with my other class as well. He truly cares about his students’ learning and their progression, and it shows.

Bob will work with your schedule and is quite flexible. He is always friendly, attentive and professional. If you want an amazing calculus tutor, consider Bob!"

Bob tutored me in Calculus (Math 124) as a student at UW Tacoma. His knowledge of the areas in calculus I was struggling in allowed me to pass my class that I would have likely not passed without his help. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone not confident in their math (specifically calculus) skills. Without him I'm not sure I would have passed my final exam. Thanks again, Bob!

Bob takes plenty of his own time before each session to prepare, and takes his time explaining complicated concepts. He is very patient, and uses modern technology to the fullest to maintain communication.

I approached Mr. H. with a pretty advanced stage of calculus and he has made it his job to teach the material and even learn some of it himself before the lesson if he has forgotten it. He has been sending updated messages through WyzAnt up to 3 times a week going over exactly what we went over during the lesson and other materials that I could print out and use as study material. He will work out the problems for the next lesson before you even speak with him, and is incredible at walking you through them. Very detailed, very organized, could not have asked for a better tutor this summer.

I count myself extremely lucky to have found Bob to tutor my daughter. She is a Sophomore taking Advanced Algebra and was struggling with some of the concepts. Bob was able to work with her and explain things in such a way that she was more able to convert theory into actual work on paper. We saw improvement in her grades (2 letter grades) and more importantly, she has more confidence in her abilities. I would recommend Bob to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, patient and flexible tutor. You can bet we will be sticking with him next year as we head into PreCalculus!

My son's teacher wasn't connecting with him and was completely crushing his joy of math as well as playing havoc with his self-esteem. "AP Calculus is just hard," is what the school had to say and what the teacher had to say. "Your GPA is so high that you can settle for a D in AP Calculus and still be fine," is what the assistant principal had to say, but these are not things that Bob had to say. Bob spent several hours with my son, and when he left, the look of relief was visible. Bob has made my son see that he knows this information, it just needs to be tapped into. He is patient, extremely knowledgeable, and very available. I am happy we found Bob and look forward to working with him throughout this year and into the "dreaded" AP Calculus exam.

Bob has helped my son tremendously! My son is in AP Calculus and has been struggling since the first day of school. Bob has helped him go from an F to a B- in just a few weeks. Bob really explains and teaches well. My son can understand what the rules mean and how to apply them correctly! If it is not a tutoring day and he needs help, Bob is very willing to help him. It has given my son the confidence to do the math! Thank you so much Bob!

I walked into a math class after let’s just say several years of being out of school, terrified and without any confidence. I found Bob H. on your site and he has been amazing to work with. Bob has been very flexible and easy to reach, but more so he was patient, kind, and helped teach me math in a way that it made sense and was almost fun... almost. I would highly recommend Bob H. to any student of any age needing to walk through a math class at any level. I have been greatly blessed with Bob's direction and guidance through my math experience.

Thank you!

I felt a little nervous after my first exam didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, so the tutoring lesson the day before the exam was focused on reviewing the material. Logarithms, derivatives, and word problems focused on the economic application of both the subjects Bob reviewed with me. I aced that exam! Bob is an excellent tutor and I could not have done it without him.

Bob was instrumental in getting my daughter through Pre-Calculus. He was very patient and was very accommodating of my daughter's schedule and needs. He was willing to spend extra time with my daughter to prepare her prior to her tests. I will use Bob again if my kids need additional help with math courses.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.
