About Robert

As a parent, I know the value of education and the challenges that parents and students face today. Learning how to learn is the most important thing that our children can get out of school. Because everyone learns differently, my tutoring style is a collaborative one. I am a former business executive who has made a career change into the tutoring, counseling and mentoring field. During my career, I coached and mentored many individuals who were successful in advancing their careers and or making changes into new ones. My relevant areas of proficiency are – Study and Organizational Skills, Math, English, Reading, Economics, Business, Computer Skills and advanced MS Office applications.

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.

Accounting

I can help with general accounting and finance knowledge and practices.

Business

I have more than 25 years as a results oriented manager with a record of accomplishment in strategic planning and portfolio management within the financial services industry. This experience includes partnering with small and middle market companies as well as public companies developing operational improvements and providing long term and working capital. I have a record of leadership and management, driving dramatic improvements in business performance and profitability. I am confident that this experience, which includes directing and coaching others, combined with my desire to be an effective and successful tutor, would make me an excellent candidate.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for over 35 years. I have been in Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Country bands in the past. Currently I have been working on more singer-songwriter/folk material and occasionally play in local coffee shops. I have taught guitar in the past and received positive feedback from my students.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel for years and am considered an expert by my colleagues. I have trained/instructed many of my co-workers on some of the more complex features. Excel is a very flexible program and offers many solutions to complex situations. It's ability to create charts, tables, macros, handle a lot of data, and interact with other MS Office applications (Access, Word, Power Point) makes it an extremely user friendly program.

Study Skills

I was a successful student in college and have recently returned to school for another degree. As in business (25 yrs exp.), organization, time management, planning, and access to relevant resources is essential for a student to be successful. I have children (28 and 7) and feel that my experience working directly with them regarding their school work, study habits, and test and task preparation would support my ability to be a successful tutor.

I am aware that everyone learns differently. Therefore, developing the specific study skills and habits that work well for the specific individual is essential. It is my experience that often a coach or tutor working with the student can be extremely beneficial in identifying and developing these. What may work well for one person, may not be as effective for another. Working as a helper or partner rather than a director has proven to be successful for me. This is why I feel I would be a successful tutor in this subject or discipline.
