About Robert

I have 34 years of experience in classroom education at the high school level. Most of my teaching has been in the fields of History and Bible, but I have also taught some English, Math and Science, and am capable of tutoring in all these subjects. I lived and taught overseas (in Brazil) for 29 years and am fluent in Portuguese. I am able to teach Brazilian Portuguese. I have also served as a high school Guidance Counselor and a high school Principal for 23 of those 33 years. I am certified by the Association of Christian Schools International to teach Bible & HIstory, and as a High School Principal.

I look forward to working with you to help you be successful academically!

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.

Bible Studies

I graduated magna cum laude from Moody Bible Institute in 1979. I was ordained as a Baptist minister in 1986. I served overseas as a missionary for 14 years. I have been teaching Bible classes for 33 years.

Portuguese

I lived in Brazil for 29 years - 15 as a child and 14 as an adult. I currently work as a Portuguese - English interpreter.

Prealgebra

I have always loved math and excelled in math in school. I also taught math in middle school (prealgebra), and have tutored students in math as well.

Soccer

I grew up in Brazil and learned to play soccer in the streets. Then I played in middle school, high school and college here in the US. I was named to the All-Star team of the Midwest region of the NCCAA during my Senior year at Moody in Chicago. I coached high school soccer in Brazil.

Volleyball

I have coached high school volleyball for 22 years, both in the US and Brazil. My teams have won multiple championships over those years.

Very patient and very flexible.

I have a strange way that I need to learn, and Robert was more than happy to provide all of the power points, audio recordings, and rescheduling from persistent illness on my part. I very much look forward to the lessons and learning Brazilian Portuguese to my fullest capacity with Robert.
