About Robert

Hi, I'm an English tutor in Germantown, Maryland. If you are a non-native speaker that would like to improve your English writing, reading, or pronunciation skills I can help. Or, if you are a native English speaker who is just interested in improving your grammar and writing skills or need help in your English classes I can also help with that, too. I have also taught test prep courses for entry into college and graduate school (ACT, SAT, GRE) and can help you improve your scores, especially in the verbal and writing sections.

A little bit about me... I live in Maryland and have worked for nine years as a web editor, web writer, proofreader, and English tutor. I have a B.A. in English with a minor in Chinese. I can speak Mandarin and a little Spanish. I love learning languages and teaching other people language. 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.

English

I have a lot of experience helping students with their English subjects such as grammar, writing, and literature. I have an BA in English, minor in Chinese (UC Davis). I've studied linguistics, writing, and British/American/Chinese literature. I've worked as a Web Editor (Yahoo!), teacher (Princeton Review), teacher in English grammar, spelling, and pronunciation to non-native speakers. I've studied Chinese abroad in Taiwan. I've had 5 years of Spanish language study and 7 years of Chinese language study.

- Currently studying graduate-level linguistics at ASU
- Studied Chinese as an undergraduate, minor in Chinese
- Graduated from UC Davis with a bachelor's degree in English
- Taught elementary school ESL as a substitute teacher
