All of Robert’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Robert’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

English

I majored in French literature in college and graduate school. Learning how the French language works, and other languages required for my doctorate, including Italian, Spanish, German and Latin, helped me deepen my understanding of English. I can safely say that before studying these other languages I did not thoroughly understand the English language.

ESL/ESOL

Improve your command of American English with the help of a native speaker who also speaks French and who has studied other foreign languages.

French

Improve your accent, fluency and grasp of grammatical expression.

Reading

When young, I had difficulty reading. Tutoring helped me learn how to read, working around my difficulties. I went on to earn a doctorate in Romance Languages and Literature. Although I still fall asleep after about 30 minutes reading, I love learning, and still read (and nap) voraciously!

TOEFL

I am a native speaker of English with a background in teaching languages.

Vocabulary

I love language and words. Vocabulary is a critical element in accurate and lively expression. My enthusiasm for words is contagious!

Writing

I have a PhD in French literature and spent many years learning to write well. In my experience, a well thought out plan of what is to be written will result in good writing.

A poorly thought out plan of what is to be written can never be dressed up with words, no matter how cleverly crafted, and will always be poorly written.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
