About Roberto

I have been teaching since 1996, after I discovered my vocation when I worked as a Human Resources Manager for a retail company. I used to train all new personnel and I enjoyed every minute of it, from preparing the training session to delivering it and evaluating it, making sure the new employees understood.

Since then, my teaching and tutoring experience has been mostly in South Florida and abroad, however, now that I moved to Virginia with my wife and children, I'm teaching full time at a Middle School in Fairfax, while tutoring students of all ages after school.

I have a master's degree in education with emphasis in ESL/ESOL, which allows me to help students with their English writing, grammar, and essays, including SAT reading and SAT writing. Since I have a bachelor's degree in Business, I can also assist students in their economics/business classes. I'm fully bilingual in Spanish, so I'm also available for students and adults willing to learn or improve their Spanish, verbal or written.

During my work abroad in Europe and South America, I had the opportunity to study politics, which prepared me to help students with their social studies subjects like AP World History, AP U.S. History, and AP European History. I'm an enthusiastic teacher/tutor who thrives in diversity and enjoys learning from all cultures. I'm also available to help younger students with their Elementary School subjects.

I'm available for tutoring at the student's home or online Monday through Friday 5pm to 9pm and on Saturday from 8am to 1 pm. My base rate is $50/hour for in-person tutoring and $35/hour for on-line tutoring.

I look forward to hearing from you and help you attain success in your studies!

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.

Chess

I have played in tournaments since I was 10 and currently participate in competitions online.

ESL/ESOL

I am experienced in Florida and abroad as teacher/tutor of ESOL and business for adults. Can negotiate rate.

Salsa Dancing

My wife and I are avid salsa dancers from our years living in Central and South America, even developing our own steps and coaching other couples.

SAT Writing

I have a master's degree in ESL/ESOL and plenty of experience in helping students improve their writing SAT. I'm a full-time teacher at Fairfax County Public Schools. My method is simple and direct, focusing on the weaknesses detected during an initial diagnose or on those areas specifically requested by the student.

Spanish

I have two masters: one in Education (ESOL) and another in Political Science, the latter received in Madrid, Spain, in Spanish. I'm a full-time teacher at Fairfax County Public Schools. I have published two books in Spanish. I look forward to hearing from you!

Writing

I have published many opinion articles online before and enjoy helping students polish their writing skills. I have taught and tutored elementary, middle, and high school students, in addition to adults from all languages.
