About Robert

Since the age of ten I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. Each successive year along my educational journey only solidified that desire although my end goal shifted from teaching grades 7-12 to wishing to teach at the university level. I first tutored in high school in Chemistry at the request of my teacher who needed someone to help a student who had been out sick for an extended period of time. Although Chemistry was not my greatest passion, I enjoyed tutoring and helping someone learn.

I never became a full time tutor, but I constantly helped friends and classmates when they needed it and I did so across subjects. Ultimately, it was evident to me that my greatest passion was history and that history was the subject that I was able to tutor best. However, I also became quite adept with languages (French and German) and became a language tutor in college. Overall, I feel that tutoring and teaching go hand-in-hand and that my ability to tutor those in subjects in which I have expertise will help me to become a better teacher and a better person.

I received a BA in History from SUNY Geneseo and completed a two semester senior honors thesis as my capstone project. I received an A on that project and graduated summa cum laude from Geneseo. I've received multiple awards from the history department and the college as a whole. I've presented at conferences and have a deep love of history. After I finish my Masters in history I will go on for a Ph.D. and hopefully become a college professor in history.

Along with my BA in History from SUNY Geneseo, my secondary major was French and I spent a semester abroad in Paris. It was a tremendous experience which helped to improve my French fluency and proficiency. I used my time and experience there to great effect and came back to school and tutored French in the Geneseo Language Lab. I also added a German minor and started taking German courses for the first time my sophomore year. I was able to complete the minor in only 5 semesters and this was made possible by my summer abroad in Regensburg, Germany last summer. Like my time in Paris, I took intensive language courses and immersed myself in the language and culture of the area. I improved my proficiency and fluency and now I feel confident tutoring German as well.

If you need any help or tutoring with History, French, German or just general humanities-type subjects please feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you to increase your knowledge of certain concepts and helping you to achieve your academic goals.

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.

American History

I received a BA in History from SUNY Geneseo and although my geographic focus in on Europe, I took courses on American History and in high school I took AP US History and received a 5.

European History

I received a BA in History from SUNY Geneseo and my geographic focus in undergrad (and now going into graduate school) was European history. My senior honors thesis was on Napoleon and the Confederation of the Rhine and European history is my passion. In high school, I took AP Euro and received a 5 on the exam.

French

At SUNY Geneseo, French was my secondary major and I studied abroad in Paris for a semester. I tutored French in the Geneseo Language Lab the last 2 years of my time there, so tutoring French is one of my specialties.

Geography

In my opinion, Geography and History go hand-in-hand. The two are separate subjects but often deal with the same issues and events. I have a BA in History from SUNY Geneseo and during my time there I took two geography courses.

German

I had a German minor at SUNY Geneseo and I studied abroad in Regensburg for a month last summer. I was a language tutor at SUNY Geneseo in the Language Lab and although I mostly tutored French students, I also did occasionally tutor those who needed help with German.

World History

I received a BA in History from SUNY Geneseo and part of the degree requirements were that the student take history courses from across geographic areas (US, Europe, and Latin America, Africa, and Asia). I also took AP World History in high school and received a 5 on the exam.
