About Robert

I graduated from Sacramento State in 2008 with my MA in English with an emphasis in composition. This means I am trained in the latest teaching techniques and materials for college level writing. Over my six years in school, I have taught and tutored at all levels of English reading and writing education:undergraduate, graduate,K-12, adult literacy,and community college. I know that English students have a wide variety of reading and writing skills as they enter into such as the particular styles of writing essays in expository(description and explanation), argumentative/persuasive, research(with study and research skills), and criticism (discussing your thoughts or particular critiques of readings.
Through working with the student, I can determine the level of English instruction from rudimentary to advanced reading and writing skills. I can tailor my approach and materials to individual student needs.I provide practical instruction designed with student progress in mind.I can help with writing skills from basic grammar,vocabulary,and spelling through paragraph structure, expressing ideas,analyzing literature and the various other related writing skills. I enjoy tutoring students who are intent on improving their writing and reading comprehension skills for college or business.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Study Skills

I completed a Certificate on Postsecondary Reading and Learning through CSU Fullerton. In particular, I learned how to teach study skills such as note taking, annotating, comprehension, organization, test taking, and time management.
