Robert is the owner and co-creator of CCPrep (along with his wonderful wife Nicole). Robert has been teaching at CCPrep full time since its creation in 2007. His strength in high school (earning ten 5’s on his AP exams, an SAT score of well over 2000 and subject test scores of 800 in Math 2 and 790 in Chemistry) fueled his desire to create a tutoring company aimed at helping students in all aspects of their high school academic experience. Robert has worked, both individually and through his classes, with well over 1,000 Orange County high school students.
As the popularity of CCPrep continues to grow, Robert is very proud and honored to be able to add to the staff with the exceptional tutors you see below.
