About Robert

I have been teaching at the high school level for the last eleven years in writing, reading, ACT test prep, and I am AP certified by the College Board. Before my time at this level, I experienced tutoring and other teaching opportunities for Jr. High level students that I enjoyed. During my teaching I have taught a variety of student learners and exercise patience and guidance with any student. Four years ago I was named by one of my students at Western Illinois University to have been their most influential teacher.

I have recently tutored a student both in person at a local library and online via Skype and Google Docs - I have found both equally beneficial. For sessions I am open to help with homework, prepare for a test, or create my own lessons involving writing, grammar, or reading comprehension to strengthen skills. Additionally, I have often coached students on their organization and structure skills to assist them in balancing their hectic lives.

I look forward to talking with you further.

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.

Golf

I have been a high school golf coach for the last two years. In that time I have learned and run several different drills that build swing style, putting and chipping. I also believe in teaching the game and patience to my players.

Public Speaking

I recently helped to plan and implement a 9th grade speech class for students. In this class we have gone over logo, pathos and ethos and have related these to speaking ethics. Additionally, I have taught persuasive speaking and writing to students at higher levels for the past several years.
