About Robert

I taught elementary school for 15 years and then spent 20 years as a school librarian. I especially enjoy helping students to experience the "fun" in learning that is possible in any subject. I like to devise games and competitions that help kids learn in ways that are not boring or tedious.

I have been a teacher for many years, but I can still remember what it felt like as a student to be confused by a subject in school. I promise to do my best to show every student the same patience and respect that I would have wanted when I was a student. Students' preferences and ideas for how they learn best are always welcome. Let's make a winning team!

Here is one more reason to consider my services...my wife bakes the very best cookies you have ever tasted and I bring them along for students who give me their best effort. :)

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.

Elementary Math

I taught elementary math to mostly math-challenged students for 15 years. I had to devise simple and easy ways for them to understand the work. I also have a lot of patience with young students of math because it was often difficult for me during my own school years!

ESL/ESOL

I have won numerous writing competitions and awards during my educational career. Recently, I scored a final grade average of 98% in earning an online certification in TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages). I know how to find many helpful resources on the internet to improve and enhance student learning and make it more enjoyable.

Reading

I spent 20 years as a school librarian. During that time I became familiar with a great many ways to teach reading that make the process fun for students. By using age-appropriate resources on the internet, reading improvement today can be made easier and more enjoyable!
