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?).

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.

Recent test scores:  In 2014, GMAT 770 (out of 800); GRE 169 Verbal and 170 Quant (each out of 170); and a perfect SAT Superscore of 2400 under the old SAT scoring. In 2016, Bobby earned a score of 1580 on the revised SAT (790 Verbal, 790 Math). Bobby is a member of Mensa and the Triple Nine Society (an association of individuals with IQ scores above the 99.9th percentile, or approximately 150). He is an Eagle Scout and a member of Sons of the American Revolution. In his spare time, Bobby enjoys doing the New York Times Crossword puzzle every day (he’s finally able – sometimes – to solve Friday and Saturday puzzles without hints, after years of practice), designing crossword puzzles, and writing fiction.
