About Robert

Greetings.

I would like to introduce myself and my services as a writing tutor.

I'm an expert writer - and I know how critical this skill is in both the academic world and in life in general. It has often been said that to be a good writer, one must first be a good reader - able to quickly comprehend written material.

I've been paid to write all of my life. I've worked in publishing, corporate communications and marketing - and I've been paid well for my skill. I've worked side-by-side with CEOs on their speeches to both employees and outside audiences. Clear writing is more than about "sounding good." It communicates a message, emphatically and succinctly.

Wouldn't you want someone who has coached corporation executives teaching your student? I note that you have also posted a request for a proofreader: I can help you in this regard as well. My background in corporate communications and publishing equipped me well as a proofreader and I'm well versed in multiple style formats.

My name is Bob, I live in Monroe, Connecticut, and I'm available for sessions throughout Fairfield and New Haven Counties. If you want great results, don't hesitate to get in touch with me.

Sincerely,
Bob S.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Marketing

I have an MBA in marketing from Fairfield University and have worked in marketing and corporate communications for approximately 30 years. I know it all - both online and traditional print marketing. Moreover, I'm an expert in many of the key sub-disciplines of marketing, including copywriting, advertising content and strategy, web content management, email marketing, marketing research (including compiling mathematical data and presenting it), and face-to-face sales. I've mentored and tutored students and junior staff in the workplace in marketing, communications, PR, writing, and publishing technology.

Study Skills

As someone who earned a GPA of 3.6 in college and 3.7 in grad school, I know all about good study skills. It starts with taking good, copious notes and - most important of all - re-reading the assigned texts in correlation with one's notes.

I'm not a naturally organized person: I had to teach this skill to myself in order to stay on top of my college assignments. More recently, in the corporate world, I've led study groups for such dry topics as insurance-certification exams - showing my colleagues how to master the material and pass the tests they needed to complete.

In summary, I can help your student become more successful in school through the development of effective study habits.

Great Tutor

Where can I start when it comes to speaking about Bob’s skillfulness in editing, writing and his mastery of the English language? Bob is a wonderful writer and editor. He tutors in a manner that brings the subject or topic to life. After more than eight tutoring sections with Bob, my own writing and editing skills have vastly improved. I now have much more confidence in my ability to convey in
