About Robert

Hi, I'm an English tutor in Phoenix. 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 Phoenix/Tempe 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

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.
