About Robert J.

My current position at North Duplin Jr- Sr High School allows me to work with several types of students. As an OCS Job Coach, my principal function is to secure work hours for Exceptional Students who require work experience in order to graduate and be productive in the real world. In addition to this function, I am currently tutoring several students in reading proficiency and comprehension as well as in simple math and social studies.

I have worked in Corporate America and I have owned several small businesses throughout my business career. I find that my real world experience helps my students learn "in context". Discussing the subject matter with real world examples from my experiences helps the child better understand the lesson. I am a STEM Council Member at ND.

I have written several to many articles for various ezines and published parts of my third book online. My writing experience also includes two other (as yet, unpublished) novels. I have taken courses in Creative Writing as well as another course in CopyWriting. I have been a member of Toastmasters International for 25 years and have used my talents to coach Religious Prelates, Government Employees, Sales People as well as Business Managers on better presentation skills.

For over 20 years I applied my experience to help corporate managers and small business owners solve business management and business performance issues within their particular industries. I accomplished this by analyzing their business models, making recommendations and implementing solutions using my written and verbal communicating skills.

I have used Word and Power Point in my business counseling and in business start up and business management seminars.

I am a student of History and keep abreast of current global situations to track the interesting parallels to determine repetitive patterns. History always repeats. Teaching in context is the proper way of education.

I have coached baseball, softball, basketball and foot ball throughout my personal career.

Are you bored with school? There is another way.

Students today need to learn lessons beyond the multiple choice questions contained in school tests. Reading and Comprehending are very important in any subject. Since many students shy away from reading, because you don't see the importance, it is extremely important that your teachers be able to convey more class content in the "context" of how the particular subject will affect you personally as you mature into adulthood and become your children's first teachers.

The result was retention of existing customers, a 50% addition to the customer base and an increase of 35% in revenues

One of these businesses involved helping entrepreneurs improve their presentations to investors, religious preachers to pump up their sermons to their congregations and business managers to energize their sales presentations to prospective clients.
