About Robert

I recently returned from Saudi Arabia where I taught English to college age students. I have traveled extensively and enjoy practicing other languages. I am naturally a tolerant and flexible person and enjoying meeting people from all walks of life. I also enjoy sharing knowledge and I make my teaching lessons as stimulating and enjoyable as possible.
I think humor is a wonderful aid in teaching, and I use it to lower the stress level whenever possible.

Before teaching overseas, I taught elementary school English as a Second Language grades 2-5 for 11 years at David Cox Elementary School in Charlotte North Carolina.
One of my most important duties was to prepare my students for the North Carolina End-of-Grade tests for grades 2-5. I also taught elementary math. I had a great deal of success with my elementary students passing their state exams.

I teach the language of math before practicing the calculations. I make sure my students know their multiplication tables before moving on to division, fractions, decimals and percents. I have students use a marker board aid them while using mathematical formulas to calculate answers. I make sure my students understand the meaning of all mathematical symbols.

I have a passion for teaching English literature in the form of short stories, plays and short novels. I use my students background information to help them relate to what they are reading. I use graphic organizers and other visuals to help with student understanding. I have students keep a vocabulary notebook which provides opportunities look up the meaning of words, use them in a sentence, and draw a picture of the word when appropriate.

Besides the fact that I am certified to teach both English as a Second Language and mainstream elementary grades 1-6,
I have vast experience teaching elementary math and English as well. My most important qualities as a teacher are that I am both patient and flexible. I use everything at my disposal to make difficult reading or language material, such as reading passages or grammar, understandable. I also teach test taking skills so students have a better chance of passing their grade level requirements.

If you would like to improve your general English reading, writing, listening or speaking skills, then I am the teacher for you. If it's homework, or having to do projects for a particular class, I would be glad to be of assistance. I am also willing to help you with basic math skills that relate reading problems.
I would be most happy to meet with you.

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 (K-6th)

I taught elementary grades 2nd thru 5th for 12 years in Charlotte, North Carolina public schools. I am certified to teach grades 1-6 in North Carolina, Texas and Georgia. I try to get to know my students, their background, and their strengths and weaknesses. I do not take anything for granted with young students who often lack basic skills, such as how to multiply.
