About Rob

Hello, my name is Rob and I would like to tell you a little about myself.
I am an Erie native, a graduate of Cathedral Prep, Edinboro University, and Gannon University.

I have taught at the middle, high school, and post-high school levels, and I have worked with students with multiple learning differences. I say differences because I feel that the term "learning disability" is inaccurate. We all learn differently; sometimes the teacher and the student need to work together to find out how the student learns best; once that is achieved the student can really grow.

My areas of specialty are English writing, World History, Public Speaking (and getting over the fear of giving speeches), research papers, grammar, and literature. I have my PA teacher certifications English 7-12 and my English as a Second Language specialist certificate. I also have certifications,in Middle school Social Studies (6-9) and Business, Computer, and IT.

In addition to this, I taught English, Career Development, and Introduction to Psychology for 12 years at Fortis Institute (formerly Tri-State Business Institute, and I have worked as a TSS and residential counselor in various agencies around the Erie area.

Currently, I teach Middle School History at Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School.

I have experience with adult learners, children with AD/HD, Tourettes Syndrome, mild autism, and dyslexia.

I have updated Pennsylvania clearances, which are viewable upon request.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have experience as a TSS and residential counselor working with children with AD/HD. In addition to this, I have worked in classrooms where many of the student population have an AD/HD diagnosis.

I feel I have an understanding of what is needed to help a student who is dealing with this learning obstacle succeed.
