About Robert

I have 30 years of teaching experience. For 27 of those years I taught social studies in middle and high school. Since I retired 3 years ago I have substitute taught, primarily in elementary and middle schools. In the past I have tutored students of all grade levels. With elementary and middle school students I work with all subjects and help with organizational and life skills. With high school students it is more subject specific, mainly social studies and language arts. I have worked with, and taught, students across a wide range of academic abilities and learning styles. I have taught over 3,000 students and very much enjoyed my teaching career. I love the outdoors and have extensive bicycling and backpacking experience, which helps me connect with young people. I often use these outdoor endeavors as a way to demonstrate how to meet and successfully overcome challenges.

One of my strengths is my ability to put lessons in concrete terms so that students can more easily grasp the concepts and content. My friendly, easygoing personality helps to ease student anxieties about learning and about using a tutor. Many, many of my former students recall fondly their time in my classes. They found my teaching to be interesting, engaging, challenging, and rewarding. Students I have tutored in the past likewise benefited from my instruction. I am confident that students would have a positive experience should you decide to use me as a tutor.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 30 years of teaching experience. For 27 of those years I taught middle and high school social studies. For the past three years I have substitute taught in middle and elementary schools, primarily elementary. Several of those jobs lasted from 2-7 weeks. I am familiar with the subjects taught and methods used in elementary schools. In the past I have tutored elementary students. I have a good sense of the cognitive development of young minds. I am also very good at putting lessons in concrete terms. I connect with students very well.

Social Studies

I taught middle and high school social studies for 27 years. I have taught all subjects in the content area to over 3,000 students. Currently, I am certified by North Carolina to teach social studies, grades 6-12.
