About Bob


Bio

I am passionate about giving high school and college students the skills they need to grow "from good to great" in mathematics. For 13 years, I have been doing this in the Buckley and Bonney Lake area where I live and in the White River School District where I am fairly well known. I am the administrator and a volunteer tutor for a tutoring group in Buckley. With the advent of COVID-19, all of my tutoring is online using the Wyzant platform (white board) and my document camera at home with...

I am passionate about giving high school and college students the skills they need to grow "from good to great" in mathematics. For 13 years, I have been doing this in the Buckley and Bonney Lake area where I live and in the White River School District where I am fairly well known. I am the administrator and a volunteer tutor for a tutoring group in Buckley. With the advent of COVID-19, all of my tutoring is online using the Wyzant platform (white board) and my document camera at home with shared screen. Very powerful and effective combination!

If you earned 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" some awful words like "limits" (in Calculus), "logarithms" (in Pre-calc), "complete the square" (in Algebra 2), and "solve", "simplify", "graph", and "prove" in Algebra 1 and Geometry) .

Math can be fun and easy, and I can make it that way for you - with your participation and practice.

Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is my favorite subject to teach and tutor. Calculus brings together everything you learned in Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Precalculus into a few elegant theorems and rules that enable you to solve seemingly impossible problems. I can teach you Calculus from beginning to end starting with Limits, Derivatives, Applications of Derivatives, Curve Sketching, Integrals, Integration Techniques, Areas of Rotation, Applications of Integration, and ending with Taylor & McLauren Series. Calculus can be fun and actually easy IF you pay attention from day one of your course, read all of the sections in your textbook (or online thread), and do all of your homework. Successful business managers, economists, scientists, engineers, biologists, chemists, and many other fields depend on Calculus - at least in part.
Precalculus

Precalculus

I can tutor you in PreCalculus (which is mostly Algebra 2 on steroids) from beginning to end starting with Polynomial and Rational Functions, Complex and Imaginary Numbers, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Trigonometric Functions, Inverse Trig Functions, through Polar Coordinates and Conic Sections (Circles, Ellipses, Hyperbolas, and Parabolas). Most of my students are registered with an online Precalculus platform like WebAssign (or many others from their school) for homework assignments and tests plus sources like Kahn Academy to learn from their excellent lectures. We use school-provided assignments and practice tests to guide our online tutoring progress. Precalculus can be easy and can be fun; I try to make it that way for my students.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

In my experience, Trigonometry is frequently the last 2 chapters in a High School Algebra 2 text book and is usually taught in April and May to Juniors and Seniors suffering from "spring fever" or "senioritis". So, on we go to Precalculus (and from PreCcalc on to Calculus) - without a solid foundation in Trigonometry. My point is that regardless of whether you are an Algebra 2 student, or a PreCalc student, or a Calculus student, a solid foundation in Trigonometry is essential - and actually quite easy! I can tutor you (teach you) everything you need to know about Trigonometry in order to make you a successful student in A2, PC, or Calculus in a few sessions. Most of my students are registered with an online platform like WebAssign (or many others from their school) for homework assignments and tests plus sources like Kahn Academy to learn from their excellent lectures. I use your school-provided assignments and practice tests to guide our online tutoring progress. Trigonometry can be easy and can be fun; I try to make it that way for my students.

Extremely knowledgeable in trigonometry

I was not understanding this subject at all, and was afraid of failing this class. Bob really knows what he is doing and I am actually starting to understand this subject!

Tracy, 6 lessons with Bob

Another great lesson!

Bob provides clear, structured lessons and gives guidance where needed. He goes above and beyond to make sure I leave understanding all questions no matter how long it takes. Definitely recommend to anyone struggling with Calculus

Unbelievable Math Tutor

Bob H. Helped my son with his honors precalculus course in high school. Bob is extremely diligent and prepared as a tutor. He asks for material the student is working on in advance so that he can prepare for the lesson. After the lessons, if he thinks it is helpful, he sends review sheets summarizing various formulas, etc. My son got 104 (got all the extra credit points) on the last exam because he prepared with Bob. It is rare to find a tutor like Bob who can explain things so thoroughly and really make sure that how students are prepared. I HIGHLY recommend Bob.

Lenore, 9 lessons with Bob

Wide variety of algebra topics

Bob's end ups knowledge of mathematics allows him to seamlessly adjust to a very demanding student with very specific needs. Highly recommended. I feel very fortunate that we've linked up

Michael, 15 lessons with Bob

Knowledgeable, patient and engaging tutor!

My high school Junior is on the advanced math track at her school, which this year placed her in the precalculus class. Unfortunately, she had not learned everything solidly leading up to this year, with math getting more and more difficult. Her grade had dipped to an F, and she was beyond frustrated and felt like a failure. We tried tutors recommended by the school (these were always other students) and also having her just work on Kahn on her own, but these methods were not working to give her the knowledge and confidence of understanding the material. We heard about Wyzant and chose to give Bob a try after reading some reviews. She has had 4 lessons to date with him and he is helping her immensely! I only wish I had heard of the platform AND Bob earlier! I know she will now have a strong understanding, as I can see it in her and hear it in her when she tells me about her lessons. She will keep her sessions with Bob for the rest of this school year minimum. He has a way of explaining the material in a patient way, and in a way that she understands. FINALLY!!! I cannot recommend him enough!

Great Tutor

My 15 year old son has used Bob for precalculus and calculus. Bob can teach things for a first time or followup and reinforce instruction my child received in class.

Jason, 33 lessons with Bob

A Great Teacher, Patient and Motivator.

Bob taught my son college algebra, my son was very happy with Bob's support, and in addition to his patience and motivation. I have clearly noticed the confidence that my son has in maths since he started taking tutoring lessons with Bob. His grade improved big time. Thanks, Bob for your support and patience.

Abdulla , 23 lessons with Bob

Great Teacher

Bob took extra time to make sure I knew the material. I moved from a D- Fall semester to an A- over the summer in college Calculus. The sessions weren’t awkward. He’s easy to talk to and really knows calculus. He really cares about the students he’s teaching.

Kendra, 6 lessons with Bob

Great tutor

Bob's review of the Calculus AB-BC curriculum is methodical and engaging. His command of the subject enables him to provide perspective and scope to the specific area of study at hand.
