Bobby Hood’s bio
Bobby was the valedictorian of Lake Highlands High School, in Dallas, Texas, and was a National Merit Finalist, scoring 800 Math and 790 Verbal on the SAT and 35 on the ACT. He attended TCU in Fort Worth, Texas, on a full-tuition scholarship.
In college, Bobby earned a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. After graduating, Bobby worked for two years as a C.P.A., then attended The University of Texas School of Law on a full-tuition scholarship. Bobby practiced municipal bond law for over ten years, with a focus on sports facilities (including the financing of Cowboys Stadium, Yankee Stadium, and the Jets/Giants Stadium).
In 2011, Bobby returned to his original passion for teaching, and now tutors students for the SAT, ACT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE, and MCAT CARS (Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills) tests. Most of his tutoring is done online (even his local Austin students typically choose to do sessions online, perhaps due to Bobby’s mellifluous radio voice?).
Approach to tutoring
Students often comment that Bobby takes a personal interest in seeing his students succeed and is able to explain a concept in a way that makes it seem much easier than they expected. “I wish my teacher had explained it that way!” is a common refrain. Bobby focuses not only on the student’s success on a particular test, but also on developing critical thinking skills and a mindful approach to taking tests that will serve the student throughout life.
