Math is much more fun when it makes sense, isn’t it?!
My lessons are unique because you are unique. Everyone doesn’t learn the same way, so I will explain math the way it makes sense to you so that you can understand. I have experience in tutoring as I was a peer tutor in high school. Of those I tutored, many told me I explain math well, so here I am to share my skills! I am patient, understanding, and friendly, which I believe are important qualities for a tutor to have. I hope I have the chance to work with you! You are smart and very capable!!!

I was a Math Major at Boston University. I was a an instructor in differential equations. During my college career I tutored alll specializing in the 5 to 17 age.. Typically my students went from a D average to a B average after they had been tutored. My patience and positive attitude made it easier for the students to grasp the concepts and succeed in the classroom.

I am a mechanical engineer who loves teaching. Not only mathematics, but also physics.
I used to teach time by time and majority of my students -who themselves wanted- got good results.
I know usually the common mistakes that the students make and let them preventing those kind of faults.

About javad

Teaching is my inner passionate. I have studied mechanical engineering and I mostly work in my field. But I love teach things that I know to the others. I believe it keeps me fresh and gives me a good sense.

I met Robby in college and he was a really good guitar player. I wanted to learn from him as much as I could. He actually took the time to set me up with lessons and gave me very specific stuff to practice. He would check in with me every couple weeks and see if I had any questions and how I was doing. I moved and had to stop lessons for a year or two. A few years later I called him and asked to get together for a couple lessons. He was blown away at how much I improved and was so genuinely happy for me. We still talk every week and if I ever have a guitar question I call him. He's my friend, and he's gonna be a famous guitar player some day.

I started learning from Rob 5 years ago. I didn't think he'd want to spend time teaching me because I didn't know anything about guitar and he was so good. I was so wrong! Since our first lesson, he treated me like a friend, and 5 years later and we are great friends. I started off being able to play a couple notes, and now I can pay solos and songs and learn just about anything I want! Thanks Rob! Take Lessons from this guy! He's the Best!
Stephen A.
My brother told me he found this great guitar teacher, and I was skeptical because he has been playing guitar for a long time and has never really sounded good. Two weeks after he mentioned him, all of the sudden he didn't suck any more. He was actually kinda good. So I tried a lesson with him and Wow! Within my first lesson I was already able to play a song! I can't afford lessons since I'm in school right now, but my brother still takes lessons with him. Even though I no longer take lessons with him I still call Rob and ask him questions about guitar all of the time, and he always makes time for me. I don't know where my brother or I would be without him. Great Teacher. Great Friend.
