About Robert

Since high school, I have worked to help other students be better writers and speakers.

I started tutoring students in English when I was in 10th grade, and continued that profession through college, where I worked in the Wake Forest Writing Center. I tutored athletes and other students in grammar, writing, and vocabulary. I also worked as a student assistant conducting research, checking sources, and proof-reading articles to be submitted by various professors.

Since college, I have served as an SAT tutor, writing teacher, and English tutor for individuals of all ages.

As a high school and college debater, I developed exceptional oral communication skills, and became a respected member of both debate teams. I have worked as a radio and television reporter, commentator, and disc jockey, and have a very high level of comfort behind a microphone, in front of a camera, or before a crowd. I have taught middle school students the art of speech and debate, and will continue that work with high school students in the fall.

I am an easy-going but demanding teacher who strives to make learning fun and exciting. I teach by way of example and by offering challenging, but enjoyable topics.

I look forward to working with you.

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.

Bar Exam

I was a practicing attorney for 15 years. I had successfully passed the Florida, Georgia, and Massachusetts bar exams, and had worked with students studying for the exam. I also spent several years as a reader for the Massachusetts bar examination.

English

I have a background in teaching and tutoring in English.

Public Speaking

I have many years of television and radio experience, including stints with SkyNews and other Fox News affiliates.

I have also worked in theatre and radio, to include voice over work and as an on-air personality.

More recently, I have taught public speaking and debate to middle school students.

Writing

I have many years of experience working with students of all ages and educational backgrounds. In addition, I have had a great deal of success in helping students to revise essays, and to improve the quality of their writing through teaching, practice, and encouragement.
