About Robert

I am an experienced English tutor at the college level and below, and published author. My work has appeared in the Southern Utah University Guide to Composition, Kolob Canyon Review, Reflections Magazine, Southern Utah University HSS Journal, and other publications. I am a member of Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society and currently serve as the Far Western Region Associate Student Representative on the national board. I frequently edit professional works for university professors which appear in peer reviewed journals, text books, and other professional publications, and am the acting Student Editor of the SUU HSS Journal of Scholastic Excellence. I am well versed in MLA, APA, and Chicago citation methods. In short, I know English-reading, writing, theory, grammar, punctuation, etc.

In addition to my qualifications in English, I am a Graphic Designer, familiar with the Adobe Suite CS6 products, to include Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

I am also an experienced actor, director, and stage crew member. Credits in this area include acting in Goodbye Girl (Neil Simon Festival 2012), Don Giovani (SUU), Downtown,Boundless Journeys Faculty/Student dance concert, and voice performances in a radio productions of Shakespeare's Lovers (Dir. Ben Harris) and You Can't Take it With You (Dir. Peter Sham). I have studied under Peter Sham (Lend Me A Tenor), Christine Frezza, Stephan Wagner,and Richard Bugg, and worked closely in several productions with Second Studio Productions.

I have written two ten minute plays (Lucky Penny and Daters Anonymous) for Second Studio Production's 24 hour theater (2012, 2013). Second Studio Productions featured my one act play, Coffee, in this past year's Night of One Acts. I have also directed productions of Lucky Penny, Streetcar Named Desire, Hamlet, and My Fair Lady.

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.

Adobe InDesign

I trained in In Design at Southern Utah University and have used InDesign to lay out books, journals, posters, and playbills. I am comfortable with the program and can easily combine works from Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop into a cohesive project with InDesign. The program is not as difficult or complicated as it may seem.

Bodybuilding

I have trained in fitness and body building for more than fifteen years, with emphasis on correct form, diet, and hydration.

Public Speaking

I have presented creative, critical, and scholastic works to crowds from ten to thousands. I am a performance poet, and it doesn't get any more difficult than that. My methods can improve presence, articulation, presentation, diction, and confidence.
