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

Business

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.

Tennis

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.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.
