About Robert

Hi!

I have plenty of teaching and real world experience. I can speak Chinese, know a lot about Economics, and as someone who struggled with dyslexia as a child -- I am very patient.

I worked my way through college at a prominent law firm in Baltimore for several years, before moving abroad to one of the fastest growing economies in the world (China) to teach English, Economics, and study Mandarin and International Development. In China, I taught English and Economics to all ages. I was even a tutor at Google's Headquarters in Beijing. I have worked in the startup world in San Francisco, so I know how competitive the real world is, and hope to help prepare you for that world some day.

I lived in China for 5 years where I studied nearly everyday. Chinese people always tell me that I do not have a foreign accent.

I taught English in China for several years, and have a TESOL certificate. I even tutored English to Chinese engineers at Google in Beijing.

I struggled with dyslexia as a child and know how to get over those hurdles.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
