California State University, Los Angeles (Geology)
Hi. Let me introduce myself. My name is Robert and I am a former Green Beret. Life experiences have taught me the value of an education and driven my enthusiasm for both learning and teaching.
As a child, I struggled as a student. My difficulties stemmed not from a lack of interest, but rather were due to a lack of direction; I didn’t know where or how to focus my thirst for knowledge. It is due to my own frustration as a student navigating my way through my school years that I developed an interest in helping others who are experiencing similar struggles.
My further education includes an Associate’s degree in Electronics Technology and a Bachelor’s degree in Geology. The latter, combined with my love for the outdoors, came as a result of my service as a Green Beret and an interest in the physical sciences; I was heavily involved in chemistry, physics, calculus, etc. Those interests led me to acquire certifications as a MicroSoft Certified Systems Administrator, MicroSoft Certified Systems Engineer, and MicroSoft Certified Database Administrator.
In addition, I hold an FCC General Class License, and given the proper test equipment, I can perform component level repairs on most electronic devices.
Additionally, I taught 9th grade math and instructed afterschool computer programs at two different elementary schools. It was while performing these duties that I became involved in math instruction for Special Education students, allowing me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students through the “inclusion” programs in place at these schools. It was during this time that I created the “one point for a wrong answer” solution model.
Due to my own struggles throughout my education, and my interaction with elementary-aged students as well as Special Education students, I feel I have a unique and applicable understanding of the difficulties young people face in their daily lives. And, as a result, I believe it is my obligation to help the young people of today succeed by equipping them with the tools and skills necessary to make sense of the complexities of the modern world. There is nothing more exciting than to see “the light come on” in a young person’s eyes when they finally “get it.” That’s why I’m here, to help you help your child succeed in the best way I know how…by teaching them the critical-thinking, problem-solving skills needed to “get it” and fuel their enthusiasm and excitement for learning.
