About Rob

Dear Parents and Students,

As an experienced AP history teacher, I understand the pressures of preparing for the AP exams. My goal is to help you develop strategies to succeed on the exam and to develop an appreciation for history and government. I use proven techniques to help you learn, not memorize, history. You will build vital critical reading and writing skills through content analysis and engaging discussions. My students tell me that I make history fun and relevant and that they enjoy the conversational style of class.

I have taught AP US history and College Preparatory US history for eleven years, AP Government for six years, European History for ten years including one year of AP. My AP courses are certified by the College Board and I am a "Reader" (essay scorer) for the AP US history exam. Being a Reader gives me unique insights into the AP essay criteria. I am also trained on the redesigned AP US exam.

I am a USATF Level I certified track coach with twenty years' experience. I sometimes say half jokingly that I coach history and teach track. I see both endeavors as a form of teaching and both as crucial to developing well-rounded students. My strongest asset is my ability to motivate students in both in the classroom and outside. I also practice and teach yoga to my students. If you are interested, I can show you simple yoga poses that can practice during your study breaks. We can even do a little yoga in the middle of the lesson to keep our minds clear and alert.
