About Rob

Words are powerful. Using them effectively makes you more powerful. I have been teaching students of all ages to use English effectively for most of my career. Mostly, I work with college-age students who need to improve their writing skills, and adults for whom English is a second language.

The curriculum is driven by the needs and interests of the student. We focus on such areas as business writing, social situations, grammar and punctuation, society and culture, or the mechanics of daily living. I use a broad range of materials that can include news articles, poetry, opinion and editorials, word games and puzzles, dialogues, magazine articles, short stories, and more.

As an undergraduate student, I majored in philosophy. After graduation, I received teacher training at Hunter College and began teaching in New York City's elementary schools, working with fourth-grade children in a Central Harlem public school.

I spent the bulk of my career in the business world, but continued teaching in both academic and business settings. At GMAC Insurance, I developed a business writing course and trained the staff in the Agency Marketing Department to write business communications that were grammatically correct, properly punctuated, clear and strong. At the University of North Carolina Greensboro and at Winston-Salem State University, I taught Marketing courses from introductory to capstone levels.

Since 2014, I have been teaching English and writing for the Berlitz Language Schools, working both face-to-face with local students and online with students from Asia to Europe. I am the author of numerous magazine articles, two professional training programs, and hundreds of successful business proposals.

I believe that learning English can be fun. I believe that there is no limit to what you can achieve, if you make the effort. I believe that you will succeed.

You will have regular homework assignments, which I will expect you to complete. I will travel locally to meet you, or we can work together over the Internet.

I am generally available during daytime hours, Monday through Friday, and I often have some evening hours available as well. My rate is $60/hour.

Contact me to start on the road to success!
