About Robert

I have a B.A. and a post-graduate certificate in teaching English as a Second Language from a university. I've taught ESL in the U.S., Thailand, Korea, Kuwait, and the Emirates. For the past six years, I've taught at a language school here in Los Angeles, teaching foreign students and immigrants.

I can speak some Spanish and some French, have tutored in TOEIC, TOEFL, the California Nursing Exam for English, also experienced in tutoring in grammar, conversation, essay writing, pronunciation, and accent reduction. I'm friendly, hard-working, and patient with students, and try to personalize my tutoring to fit the current needs of the students and what they want to learn, study, or practice at the time.

I'm hard-working, friendly, patient, and knowledgeable about English, also have clear diction and am a native speaker of English.

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.
