About Robert

I am a Certified TEFL-C-B Educator (120-Hour) which includes Children, Adults and Business English students and a Certified Switched-On Educator (Alpha-Omega) for K-12 students. I have been teaching in the US and abroad for over 20 years in different locations in positions including corporate instructor, tutor of individuals and as a university professor. I currently work for an online school in China where I tutor elementary and middle school children to improve their English speaking, writing and reading comprehension.
Having the ability to effect change into a single mind is very fulfilling. In most tutoring sessions there are no real distractions so that true learning can happen with more retention by the student than in a more formal setting. I look forward to working with the students that seek tutoring from me.

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.

ACT Math

ACT math is a portion of the building blocks of most everything you will need to know in later efforts of education, business and game playing. I have enjoyed this fundamental part of my education and love to help people realize how much of it they already know.

Algebra 1

First level Algebra has always been a subject that interests me. I did a short stint as an assistant teacher when I was in junior college back in the day and really enjoyed the challenges of quadratic equations and such!

Algebra 2

Algebra can really be fun if you get into it and do not get afraid of the long numbers that you usually see when you are first reading about the subject.

Bible Studies

In addition to studying the Bible for many years I now have a Master of Arts in Religion and a Master of Religious Education from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, VA. USA. I truly enjoy looking into the different individuals found throughout the entire Bible.

Business

In addition to having been in business for over the last thirty years I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a focus on Information Technology and a Master of Science in Management with a focus on Project Management earned from Colorado Technical University.

Econometrics

Econometrics is the effort to make things happen in multiple places within various budget constraints utilizing the metrics of the economy that are infused into the logistical process from the beginning. The value and purpose of applying the economy and its whims and wanderings into the overall database of measurable information is directly related to all logistical problems and the efforts made to resolve them. With a career in logistics management that is focused on the econometrics of logistical realities I am very qualified to assist you in your endeavor to understand, and use such information.

ESL/ESOL

To be able to speak, read and write fluently in the English language is as important as being able to breathe. I am always excited when someone wants to learn my native language. I look forward to working with each and every individual that desires to master English as their second (or more) language.

GED

It is my firm belief that everyone should and must have at least a general education degree. In this time of rapid technology and constant change the person that does not know these minimal standards will be fard pressed to find meaningful work. I am excited to assist anyone that desires to achieve this first building block of their life.

Proofreading

As a writer and an avid reader I am able to recognize most errors, omissions and "better word/phrase here" situations within reading material. It is seldom that I read a magazine article or a newspaper piece that I do not find something that seems amiss. Proofreading material for me feels natural, as if I were born to proofread.

Reading

Reading has to be at the top of my list of all time favorite things to do. I have been attracted to books and the information contained in them for as long as I can remember. My personal library is well above 1,000 books and growing. If you can read and comprehend what you read your life can be filled even in the loneliest of times.

Religion

Christianity as a religion is not alone in this world therefore everyone should become aware of what religion actually is. The subject of religion is not just about any one viewpoint, ideology or theology. Religion is a comparative study of the many different faiths found around the world that speak to that part of our human psyche that must have a higher authority to base hopes and futures on. The myths and rituals practiced around the globe provide fascinating opportunities for study because they remind humanity of the origins and the contacts with a power that is beyond this world. I am qualified to tutor this subject as I have a Master of Arts in Religion and a Master of Religious Education from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, VA. USA.

TOEFL

To be able to speak, read and write fluently in the English language is as important as being able to breathe. I am always excited when someone wants to learn my native language. I look forward to working with each and every individual that desires to master English as their second (or more) language.

Writing

I have been a writer for most of my life. I have published one book of poetry and am completing a second. I look forward to working with anyone that wants to develop their writing skills. We all have something to say, sometimes we just need a little help in doing so.
