My academic training was in engineering: I received my master's and doctoral degrees in metallurgy and materials science from Columbia University, and my bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. In graduate school I worked for several years as a teaching assistant, which included some lecturing, grading, and tutoring.

After graduating, I worked as an engineer and accrued more than 20 years of experience in various segments of the...
Robert is one of the smartest people I know. He can solve basically any problem out there. Robert helped me for 2 years in subjects in Physics, Math, Excel, and reports. I will ask him for help in solid state later down the road. Highly recommend him as a tutor.

Excellent. My son said that he was able to grasp the concepts the way that Robert explained them. Robert was very patient and went beyond the surface questions.
- Samuel L. from Keller, TX
My son has now had several sessions with Robert. We couldn't be happier. My son was very frustrated with the online class format and was ready to quit. However, Robert has tutored him every week since and offered his expertise in an easy to understand way. Robert is very organized, great at communicating, puts a lot of time into his sessions, and is extrememly knowledgeable. We couldn't be happier and we highly reccommend Robert.

Robert is meticulous and extremely knowledgeable in a variety of disciplines. He is efficient and yet still explains concepts thoroughly. He is dedicated and mindful of finding the best way of arriving at a solution. He even contacted me after one of our sessions after pursuing an even better way of doing one of the problems. I very much appreciate his expertise. Thank you, Robert!

Let me start off by saying I have never ever in my life understood chemistry--until working with Robert. He is patient, diligent, and completely willing to break down any confusion I may be having. I will work with him for as long as it takes! Book him now!
- Brhan E. from Richmond, CA
He helped me understand thermochemical information I am learning for the first time in general chemistry 2 which I was really struggling to understand. He also made sure I understand how to get from point a to point b and answered any questions I had very well.

I am studying chemistry with Robert. He is an amazing teacher and explains things with exceptional clarity. I am definitely planning to continue working with him.
- Gittel R. from New York, NY
Robert was patient and helpful. He explained physics to me that helped me to understand. I usually feel so lost in my classes, but I can see that even just after one lesson I can already understand it better. I will use Robert again.
- Michelle K. from Los Angeles, CA
Robert Helped me realize my mistakes on material at hand. Furthermore It is really helpful when he writes down "why you actually use this formula". And this Why to use it instead of something else, is the foundation key to understanding the material and passing the exams.
- Dmitry C. from Brooklyn, NY
My 16-year-old son connected well with Robert. He appreciated his tutoring style and working through the problems while answering any questions Bradley had. We will definitely schedule additional tutoring sessions.
- Bradley M. from Mckinney, TX
Robert did a wonderful job helping my daughter in chemistry. He has a vast knowledge in chemistry. He demonstrated patience and was thorough in his explanations. We would definitely use Robert again. Thanks so much Robert....
- Marc M. from Palm City, FL
Robert was patient and my son found his explanations helpful. It was his first session with Robert but my son indicated that as he tries to improve his physics grade he would like to get help from Robert again. He has a quiz coming up in a few days so hopefully the extra help will help him perform well on it.
- Jen S. from Oakland, NJ
Robert was very helpful with my statistics lesson and in teaching me Excel. I highly recommend him! Thanks again for your help!
- Jon G. from Roslyn Heights, NY
Thanks for your clear and helpful guidance. I appreciated your help for my test make up. I'll be back for another session.
