About Robert


Bio

The most exciting and rewarding parts of teaching for me are the moments when a student who has been studying and working hard, but still struggling with a concept or type of problem, has the "Aha!" moment; the moment when I can see that look of understanding and comprehension light up the student's face. I have seen the same look in students of all ages and backgrounds. It is a thrilling moment for the student, of course, but also for me, because I know that this is the start of that student...

The most exciting and rewarding parts of teaching for me are the moments when a student who has been studying and working hard, but still struggling with a concept or type of problem, has the "Aha!" moment; the moment when I can see that look of understanding and comprehension light up the student's face. I have seen the same look in students of all ages and backgrounds. It is a thrilling moment for the student, of course, but also for me, because I know that this is the start of that student increasing in both their ability and confidence to learn and succeed academically.

In many years of teaching and tutoring students from elementary and secondary grades to college students, I have been blessed and lucky to see that look and take that journey with many students. The opportunity to help a student to reach his or her goals and to be successful is the reason that I love teaching and tutoring students. I have an M.Ed in Special Education, in addition to a Bachelor's in Psychology and a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy. I also have three years experience as a counselor as well as seventeen years as a special education teacher for both elementary and secondary grades. My ACT tutoring experience includes three years as an ACT tutor for Birmingham City Schools Summer Program; training with Kaplan Test Prep; and several students whom I tutored privately.

As a tutor, I am very supportive; and I bring enthusiasm and a positive outlook on student success. I am very flexible and able to work with the variety of personalities and outlooks that students have. As long as a student is committed to doing the work necessary, I truly believe that she or he will be successful.
