About Robert

I am a multidiscipline economics professor who has taught basic economics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, public finance, and public policy courses at 3 major universities as well as on-line courses for a New England university. I received several teaching awards and was selected to teach an honors version of a core economics courses. I also teach applied math concepts to help students take standardized tests.

I've had an accomplished professional career as a senior administrator in both the public and private sectors, including positions in higher education at highly ranked universities. I also consult for families/students in the college admissions process to help them become better informed in their decision making process for selecting colleges.

My education includes an undergraduate degree in economics from West Point (4.0) and a graduate degree in Public Administration from The Kennedy School at Harvard University (3.8).

My teaching methods include a multifaceted approach that include practical applications (real-world examples), mathematical understanding, and graphical explanations.
