There are many paths to success in academics and many tools and techniques to learn. The great advantage of tutoring is the ability to craft a learning/teaching plan and develop the tools to connect you—-an individual--to the general material.

I have had the professional opportunity to nurture the people who have worked for me over the years at Good Morning America, in television newsrooms around the country and at a several start up businesses.

The key to their success was less about what I taught them than it was in identifying the best way to teach them. No two people have the same skills or educational level but our institutional requirements measure them the same way. We’ll know what we have to accomplish and together can develop the dynamic means to help master the material so that mastery is reflected in your grades and other accomplishments.

Engaging someone and watching him or her discover and connect with something new is rewarding in a unique way.

Test Preparation:


Bob has extensive Senior Management Experience as the former Executive producer for Good Morning America, CEO of the pioneering Internet business channel, WebFN, Senior Vice President Programming, Production and Promotion at ReelzChannel, internationally as COO of Israel's Channel 10 and News Director of two major market television news operations.

He has developed, built and remade traditional and new media businesses and production units consistently evaluating budgets and staffing while creating innovative content and programming producing new revenues.

Career Development

In more than 30 years of Senior Management experience, I have hired and managed the careers of hundreds of people--diverse in experience and background. There is nothing I have enjoyed more than identifying and nurturing talent.

In addition to this professional work, I've developed and taught courses and classroom exercises for University and High School students.

There's not a week that goes by that I don't hear from at least one of my former colleagues or someone I coached. Seeing so many of them grow from entry level work to significant major positions has been my greatest reward.

Public Speaking

I have worked with a variety of on-air and on line talent and performers--from local stations to the Network to pioneering streaming media work. And been in front of many different audiences.

The process is to develop what is a very natural skill--talking. The audiences connect only if you naturally communicate--even though you're likely reading notes or text, not to mention performing.

So much is in the writing for the ear not the eye--a basic broadcast guideline.
We'll work on all the tools to build your confidence to engage an audience.

Study Skills

I wanted to emphasize the work I have been doing with each of my students. It's focus is as much on Organizational strategies as it is the specific (and certified) subject matter and or/specific assignments.
I have had experience mastering (and organizing) complex material (creating courses at the College level for example) both academically and professionally--building several large business and production organizations from scratch (staffing and budget strategies that had to be organized). In every case, I effectively communicated--visually and orally--the substance and value of my organization and systems management.


I have been playing Tennis competitively and rank as a 3.5 Player. I am a weekly participant in a drills-based session led by a USTA certified Coach. I understand stroke techniques and strategies and have experience communicating them.
