About Bob

Prior to accepting a position as a sales director for a technology company, I taught English 1, Introduction To Literature, at UCSB, and also Subject A, remedial English for entering students unable to meet the requirements for writing essays in lower division humanity courses. Also, I taught Introduction To Literature classes at Santa Barbara City College and also taught senior English at St. Anthony's Preparatory School. I held the position of Editor-in-Chief with Ross-Erikson, Publishers during their operations in Santa Barbara.

When my technology sales position was terminated due to the recession, I was glad to be able to return to the profession I enjoyed the most - teaching literature and expository writing. My most recent tutoring client, a high school sophomore, had a fear of writing and exhibited poor writing mechanics and a weak vocabulary. He has improved both and is no longer afraid of essay writing. When my daughter was a high school student, she had difficulty writing essays. I tutored her but did not make the frequent mistake some parents do writing essays for their children. She is now a professional writer, creating documents worth thousands of dollars for her employer.
