About Bob

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 Substitute teacher, I taught Algebra 2 at Choice HS, and I was an AVID tutor for three years at White River HS and Glacier MS. I am also the administrator and a volunteer tutor for a tutoring group in Buckley.

If you got high C's or solid B's in math and now you're mystified by some of the new stuff in calculus and precalculus, or if you're baffled by how much algebra and geometry you forgot during the summer (or during those years when you didn't take any math courses at all), then I'm your man. I am great at "demystifying" calculus and those awful words like "limits" and "logarithms" and "complete the square".

Math can be fun and easy, and I will try to make it that way for you.

Great teacher!

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.
