I am the screenwriter behind animated feature films like The Nut Job and Disney's Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning. I have written projects for major studios like Paramount, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., and Disney. I have also written projects for international studios in China, Japan, Israel, and S. Korea. On the academic side of things, I have my PhD in Creative Writing and have helped students get into schools like MIT, Johns Hopkins, Claremont McKenna, Columbia, Duke, Cornell, Yale, and the prestigious Dodge College of Film at Chapman University.

If you're frustrated and tired of staring at your screen with writer's block, or you're wondering how to make what you've already written even better, I can assist you from brain storming through final draft. From professional writing, blogging, homework assignments to college essays, I would like to work with you.

Awesome and Down to Earth

Robert was a great writing tutor and very personable. He gave very helpful tips on my writing. He provided useful feedback on grammar, style, and theme. I highly recommend him as a tutor.

You should choose ROBERT as your tutor!

Robert is a very creative and lively person, no doubt! With his help, I was able to write college essays that I'm really proud of. During our sessions, his friendly nature put me at ease and allowed me to comfortably express my ideas. When I was stuck, he asked really good questions that got me brainstorming. With his fresh perspective, I was able to fill in the gaps in my narrative that needed further explaining. When my essays ran over the word limits, he was excellent in helping me trim them down. Highly recommend!

Passionate and effective Tutor!

Robert sees writing like performing a magic trick. It appears out of nowhere and once it exists, you've created something valuable for life. He is so passionate about the art of writing and that easily translates into his teaching. I have been around screenwriting for most of my life, yet Robert actually showed me a whole new perspective that has me excited about it all over again. He takes you through the history of screenwriting artfully as he gives you the tools to conquer your fears and perform the unique magic of writing.

Robert is outstanding

He's brilliant. He really is. I listen to him and when he's done talking I understand. They want 160 characters in this review but I've said my piece. I can't do 160 characters. My thumbs are tired.

Trina, 6 lessons with Robert

Knowledgeable and passionate tutor

My daughter learned a lot from her first lesson with Robert. He correctly pointed out what she is good at and what she needs to improve. Robert is very knowledgeable with components of good writing and his class is very engaging. We look forward to the next lesson!
