About Robert

Effective marketing is a critical aspect of every successful business. Determining who your best target audience is, what marketing strategies work and which don't, and how to keep customers coming back are challenges that must be addressed in order to keep a business operating efficiently. Marketing provides the opportunity to present the reasons why potential should do business with you and explain why your offer is more advantageous than competitive offers.

With more than two decades of experience, my professional life as a director of marketing for an industry leader is consumed with developing and executing marketing strategies and tactics. All decisions are based on best practices and metrics that help determine the best courses of action. An integrated marketing approach is typically followed when a balanced combination of sales lead generation and brand awareness is the overriding objective. I have deep experience in branding, web development, public relations, advertising, sales promotion, sales collateral material creation, trade show exhibiting, market research, direct mail, event planning and much more. My approach is metric-driven. That is, determining what works is critical to effective marketing and getting a return on a marketing investment, and I measure everything that can be adjusted for future efforts.

A business may have, objectively, one of the best valued offers in its marketplace, but if buyers are not aware of it success will always remain out of reach. While an integrated approach is often best because it builds a product or service brand, marketing success can also be achieved through one or two methods if they match the manner in which prospects seek to find the type of offers that a business has.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was an employee of Literacy America many years ago. I taught children and young adults how to read and write. The strategy I take tutoring elementary school age children depends on each child. We all learn in different ways and at different speeds. Finding what works best with your child is the key to learning success. I look forward to helping to make a positive academic impact on your child.


For more than 20 years I have been working with people from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. With the assistance of my MBA in global management, I have had great success in not only interacting with colleagues, suppliers and customers who have limited English language skill, but also in helping others improve their English language competence. This success applies not only to oral communication, but to writing and reading skills, as well. My teaching style analyzes each individual to determine the most effective and most expedient way to improve English language skills. I look forward to working with anyone that seeks to increase proficiency in the English language.


With over 25 years of marketing experience, my daily business life routinely includes explaining marketing strategies to peers, subordinates, superiors, customers and suppliers to move forward a diverse array of initiatives. While I have much experience in business to business marketing, the principles of marketing that I apply have garnered solid results in business to consumer marketing, as well. My educational background in journalism provides a solid foundation in effective communication, the root of effective marketing.


The ability to identify word sounds and begin to understand sound-spelling patterns is critical to effective reading and writing. Learning the nuances of the English language is an important part of that process. As a former member of Literacy America, a now defunct organization that helped young people read and write, I taught many illiterate persons how to read and write.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is best accomplished when one has a firm grasp of the subject matter about which is being presented. At an early age I learned what type of preparation and thought process worked best to achieve polished, public presentation results. I have more than 20 years of experience in effective public speaking and understand that the right mental frame of mind is critical to a successful result when speaking in front of a group. I look forward to sharing the keys to becoming a confident and fearless public speaker.

Study Skills

I spend a large part of working days processing information to do my job. When I was in school and studying academic material, I was doing virtually the same thing. Since we are all different, acquiring great study habits is all about determining what study strategies work best for each individual. Some people have a natural ability to concentrate and comprehend information. Others don't. I look forward to not only helping to uncover the keys to effective studying for your student, but to help him or her learn how to create a study plan that is geared to your student and the subject matter.
