Robert is very dedicated and keeping my son on track with his prep. This is a difficult time of year to keep students motivated?back to in-person work and school, following a summer break, athletics moving forward?so many distractions can interfere with long term goals.

Really breaks down what you need to know. Will help give you useful tools for studying and tricks on remembering certain things. Will help work through practice problems with you and really makes sure you understand everything

My child?s confidence and test skills continue to improve under Robert?s tutoring. She is so much less stressed about the upcoming ACT and her practice test scores keep improving!
- Betsy M. from Norris, TN
Our son is a high-achieving student. However, he was not scoring at the level he had hoped he would on the ACT. We contacted Bob and he quickly arranged to speak with us about our son's needs and offered to schedule his first tutoring session just a few days later. Further, he made it clear that he would be flexible in arranging tutoring times that worked with our son's schedule. Bob began by reviewing our son's previous test scores. Based on this analysis, he suggested a strategy that he felt would raise his score. Bob always listened carefully to our son's explanation of his current schedule and classwork burden. Based on these discussions at the end of every tutoring session, Bob would assign our son homework based on the areas where he felt our son could use his limited time most effectively. Under Bob's guidance, our son exceeded his goals on the ACT. With Bob's assistance and guidance, our son gained 5 points, raising his overall ACT score to 33. In the science section alone, he gained 8 points. In English, his scored increased by 6 points. We would be remiss if we did not mention a few other positive aspects of our experience with Bob. First, Bob is always on time! While this may seem like a small point, his punctuality was deeply appreciated. Second, Bob was willing to come to our home for tutoring, which was a key factor in our son being able to maximize the time he worked with Bob. We were always present in the house when Bob was tutoring and were consistently impressed by his kind, calm approach. Finally, during the time our son was working with him, we realized the PSAT date was fast approaching and asked Bob if he would tutor our son for the PSAT as well. Bob immediately procured the necessary student materials for the PSAT and incorporated this preparation into the tutoring sessions. Again, we would recommend Bob enthusiastically and without reservation. We are extremely grateful to him for helping our son achieve his goals.

Bob reviewed every chapter of our prep book with me, and walked me through the questions I got stuck on. He was so patient in bringing back old concepts and explaining new ones. My score went up 10 points! I couldn?t recommend him more.
- Jamie S. from Knoxville, TN
He is very knowledgeable and patient. He was very encouraging and went at my son's pace, making sure that he understood before moving on. He made sure that my son was involved in the solving of the problems, rather than just watching him demonstrate how to work the problems.
- Rachel G. from Knoxville, TN
General study habits that produce success in Calculus and accounting at UT which Robert has tutored for a number of years. I look forward to better grades with Robert?s help.

- Lourdes M. from Knoxville, TN
We had a significant delay to our session (flat tire) and Bob was completely understanding and flexible, he was still able to meet with my daughter after we were able to get back on the road. He helped her gain a better understanding of factoring, and she felt more confident in her Algebra skills after working with him.
- Christopher W. from Knoxville, TN
Robert was great in math, helped with using the calculator, and remembering formulas. Very knowledgeable in the overall ACT exam. He is very easy to work with. Great in working out a schedule to accommodate my son's busy schedule.
- Jamie G. from Corryton, TN
Robert has helped my daughter with her math. She has shown her tips on using the TI84 calculator that will be very helpful to her. He encourages checking over your answers and helps find ways to do so effectively. He is helping her build confidence as well.

Robert is an exceptional ACT tutor! We are beyond impressed with his depth of knowledge and genuine interest in our child's success. We feel most fortunate to be working with him!
- Tara M. from Knoxville, TN
Robert C. effortlessly worked well with our son. He also made some difficult trig concepts easier for my son to understand and apply. Made sure he could double check his work. Very nice.
- Lynne M. from Knoxville, TN
My daughter and Robert's lesson was a last minute session on a Saturday afternoon. Robert worked with Victoria for almost 3 hours helping her prepare for an intro college level statistics final exam. She walked away from the lesson with confidence regarding the math, as well as her ability to work the problems. We would absolutely request Robert's services in the future!
- Cynthia N. from Lenoir City, TN
Bob is an amazing tutor. He is patient and knowledgeable and worked very well with our daughter. I found is follow-up process to ensure understanding very effective. I would utilize Bob again if future situations require a tutor. I would highly recommend him!!
- Angela R. from Knoxville, TN
My daughter needed to raise her ACT score from a 28 to a 30 and we knew she needed individual help in order for her to get a higher score. Bob was an excellent tutor who was knowledgeable on all ACT subjects. He was also extremely professional and it was well worth the investment up front to get the pay back in college scholarships. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to see an increase in ACT scores. Thanks Bob for a wonderful job!
- Christy B. from Harrogate, TN
He was very knowledgeable on the best study guide needed for prep for ACT, how to get started and what to cover. I'm he will benefit Courtney in improving her ACT score. He was also encouraging about raising her score.
- Debbie S. from Knoxville, TN
Bob does a great job and provides additional materials to help when not tutoring; also works around schedule very well.
- George H. from Seymour, TN
Bob is very approachable and intent on addressing the immediate need of the subject matter. He is very personable and gracious and entertains all questions with equal and intentional interest. He illustrates and explains examples in layman's terms which works well for me! I feel much more prepared for the College level Economics class that I am taking after the first tutoring session.
- Sandi F. from Knoxville, TN
