I'm Rob K. I'm a former elementary classroom teacher and current Assistant Professor of Literacy. I have a total of over 15 years experience teaching, tutoring, and mentoring students. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a PhD in Reading and Literacy in Early and Middle Childhood.

As a teacher of both children and adults, I strive to provide intentionally structured and sequenced opportunities around defined, obtainable goals to facilitate learning. My view of teaching and learning draws upon ideas that learning occurs within specific social contexts, and that problem-solving, speaking, and writing are critical to learning.

Working in an array of contexts, both urban and rural, with diverse student populations primarily in areas of high socioeconomic need have afforded me specialized knowledge for working with English language learners and students having difficulties learning to read. I currently work with elementary children through one to one literacy tutoring as well as research related projects.

I enjoy teaching and mentoring high school and undergraduate students in both literacy and test prep. For several years, I tutored high school students in preparation for graduation exams and college entrance exams. I have been highly successful helping students achieve their goals on standardized tests by working with them to understand basic concepts, not just memorizing answers.
