I have been tutoring in the Pittsfield and Williamstown public schools for over 8 years, often with Special Education students who have Individualized Education Plans (IEP). A large part of my work with all students is helping them develop study strategies to complete homework assignments and prepare for tests. These include strategies for note taking in class and while reading, organizing subject material by importance or difficulty, identifying key ideas and preparing summaries, and managing time and distractions. It also includes motivating students to value and enjoy learning.

I have been a jazz trumpet player for 40 years including several years each playing with the Williams College Big Band, Berkshire Community College Jazz Ensemble and The Good Life, a 5-piece jazz band performing for concerts and outdoor performances, weddings and family events, restaurants, resorts and country clubs, business and school events, and town and community celebrations in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. I have been recorded on The BCC Jazz Ensemble Plays Music by Thelonius Monk. I am comfortable offering both instrumental trumpet and jazz theory lessons.

Robert is a good tutor

Robert made me speak. I read a text and we discussed the text. We spoke about different languages. He has given me a book for reading in home as my homework.
