About Robert

My love of teaching is what has formed almost every decision of my adult life. I am originally from New Jersey and have over five years of tutoring experience with reading and social studies for elementary and middle school aged students. After teaching for over two years and tutoring for over five, my passion comes from the success I see in my students. I relocated last year and have not tutored in South Florida up to this point which is why I am now on this website. One-on-one instruction is the best method for immediate and substantial growth in a student's abilities.

I have over two years teaching Middle School Social Studies and have completed over 250 hours of professional development with regard to reading strategies and literacy comprehension. That total includes a 60-hour professional development course called Next Generation Content Area Reading Professional Development (NGCAR-PD). This course requires implementation of over 10 vocabulary and reading strategies. I am a strong believer in having as many tools as possible, as it will inevitably lead to success for more students. If one strategy does not have as big of an effect as I had hoped, I can implement a different strategy and individualize it to the student for the biggest impact. Having more tools in the bag equates to a greater chance of success.

Additionally, I hold myself to an extremely high standard. My goal is to help the student as much as possible and work with parents so that they feel comfortable with the strategies I am implementing. As a teacher, I work with student data on a daily basis and that is what ultimately separates me from the people here who only tutor. Everyday I look at my students' work and analyze what learning strategies are most effective. Data-driven instruction is a proven strategy to help student achievement and something that I base my career on.


I have over 250 hours of professional development that was focused on reading and vocabulary strategies. I have implemented these strategies on a wide-scale in my classroom and have found which one's have the biggest impact on student growth and development. The data I have collected has made me a better teacher and tutor and separates me from my competition.

With over five years of experience tutoring young students I have evolved my skills to better fit their individualized needs. I am currently working on my K-5 certification exam and was even offered a job in an elementary school after only five days of substitute teaching there. My methods work because they aren't something I read about and try the next day. They are strategies that I have studied, put into effect, and analyzed their outcomes.

I have over two years of experience teaching Social Studies at a Middle School level and have a successful track record with the Civics EOC. I have unlimited resources at my disposal and a variety of methods and strategies that I implement on a daily basis. In my classroom I try to have one-on-one direct instruction with students everyday as it has shown have the greatest impact on their individual development. Tutoring is something I do on a daily basis in my classroom and something that I am passionate about.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
