About Robert

I'm a retired newspaper publisher/editor/reporter who recently joined WyzAnt and is hoping to enhance the writing and reading skills of students throughout Plymouth County. I spent more than 30 years in the journalism/publishing industry, winning dozens of awards (including three New England Press Association awards for writing). My career includes more than 10 years as a editor and writer for the Boston Herald and the San Francisco Examiner. I tallied perfect scores in the majority of rigorous tests that Wzyant requires for certification in various subject areas. My overall test average exceeded 95 percent.

I am well-trained in all aspects of writing, and would be very excited to work with any student regardless of his or her reading/writing level. I have taught many writing courses throughout the years for students at various experience levels, from second-graders through professional-level adults. I am a very patient instructor, understanding that people learn at different speeds. Through realistic goal-setting, I promise to enhance the abilities of all my students. I encourage everyone reading to send me an e-mail to discover what I can offer. Thanks for reading. I hope to speak with you soon!
