About Robert

Tutoring has been the most rewarding and exciting occupation I have had. I started tutoring students when I was a high school social studies teacher. This was with home bound high school students. The greatest experience tutoring was when I was teaching ESL for two years in Moscow, Russia. I tutored students from eight to sixty years old, from beginners to advanced business English. I worked with all the Cambridge exams and the international English proficiency exams.

Presently I am teaching ESL classes for CREC in Hartford, and I have also taught and tutored for Capital Community College and an international language company, Global LT.

My philosophy is to bring what I teach alive for the student. I believe tutoring is very personal and each student has his or her own goals, personality, life experiences, and learning style. As a tutor, I not only teach a subject, I teach an individual. This approach has brought success. I can provide references that will verify my success.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with the ESL material development with Newsweek Magazine. I have also taught ESL to all levels of students in Moscow, Russia for two years. I am presently teaching ESL classes for CREC in Hartford. I also work as an ESL teacher for the Work place program. I have tutored English with students ages 6 to 60 and I am still tutoring students for CREC and another organization.

Social Studies

I have a BS degree and post graduate work in Social studies. I was a high school social studies teacher in Connecticut for five years. I taught social studies in the Peace Corps. I have also worked with Newsweek Magazine as a social studies sales manager. I have been an active member of the Connecticut and National Council of Social Studies.
