About Robert

My name is Robert P. and I was born and raised in Claremont, California. After attending Claremont High School, I went on to study History and play baseball at Cal Poly Pomona where I graduated in 2009. I stayed at Cal Poly another year and a half to earn my Single-Subject Teaching Credential in Social Science. Throughout my credential program, I gained 20 weeks of experience teaching the social sciences at Ontario High School and VIna Danks Middle School. After completing my credential, I was hired as a substitute teacher for Claremont Unified School District where I worked in K-12 grade classrooms for 2 years. During that time, I worked as a long term substitute history teacher for 11 weeks at San Antonio High School in Claremont.

I love to teach and coach because it's a very rewarding challenge to work with students who have different learning styles and needs and watch them grow as individuals.

In June of 2011, I attended an intensive TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course in Samara, Costa Rica where I designed and facilitated lesson plans for local English language learners. I completed the four week course and earned my TEFL certificate.

As a qualified substitute teacher in California, I'm required to hold a CBEST (California Basic Education Skills Test) certificate. My experience as a substitute teacher has allowed me to become more successful in teaching common core material.

I earned my BA in History from Cal Poly Pomona in 2009 with a focus on U.S. History and U.S. foreign policy in the mid-20th century with an overall GPA of 3.5. I am able to help students understand that history is not simply memorizing dates and facts, but is analyzing different perspective and sources and drawing our own conclusions with sufficient evidence.

I've won one high school league title with Claremont High in 2005 and one as an assistant coach with Montclair High School in 2013. I was a 1st Team Baseline League outfielder for Claremont High School from 2003-2005 as well as an Inland Valley All-Star in 2005. I went on to play for Mike Ashman at Cal Poly Pomona from 2005-2010. After my playing career, I coached 3 seasons at Montclair High School as an assistant. In 2013, I became the head coach of one of the Major League Baseball Development Centers in Wuxi, China where I worked full time for 2 years.

I recently moved back from China where I was living for over 2 years and am eager to get back into education here in California. My schedule is currently wide open in the evenings and I can flexible in where lessons are held.
