About Robert

I am well versed in many different aspects of English. I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in English. My MA program was The Teaching of Writing and Literature. I currently teach English composition at NVCC and enjoy the challenge of helping all of my students progress as writers. I have been an English tutor for over ten years, and I love tutoring students of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels.

Here are a few of my specialties: Writing an Essay, Grammar, Literature, Poetry (writing and analyzing), and Communicating in English.

I also help students with math (through Algebra 1).

I can tutor online for a discount!

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.

ASVAB

I have taken the ASVAB myself, and I achieved a very high score.

I have a knowledge base that is sufficient for taking, and doing well in, the ASVAB.

As an English instructor, I can certainly help with the English sections, but I am also educated in science and math and have a great interest in electronics.

I can definitely help students develop successful ways to confront the many facets of the ASVAB test.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is an essential foundation for higher levels of math. I have tutored students in elementary math for over ten years. There are several approaches to many problems, and I work with the students in order to find the best approach for the individual. I am patient and can explain things in a way that makes math less intimidating than it used to be for students.

English

I am well versed in many different aspects of English. I enjoy the challenge of helping all of my students progress as writers.

Here are a few of my specialties:

-Writing an Essay

ESL/ESOL

I have helped ESL students in ESL classes as a tutor and have tutored them privately for many years.

I enjoy working with people from all nations; I am very good at understanding students with heavy accents.

I love helping students improve their skills in reading, writing, and speaking the English language.

Grammar

I am very well versed in English grammar. I have techniques for teaching grammar that have been proven to work quite well with students of all ages and skill levels.

Prealgebra

I love helping students with difficult challenges. For many people, it is math.

I think my English background helps me tremendously because I can explain things very well.

I have tutored math students for over six years, and the students often tell me that I am better at explaining things than their teachers.

Writing

I have been tutoring students in writing for over ten years; I love helping them progress as writers. I am dedicated to helping students improve their English skills.

Very pleased with Robert!

You can tell he is very experienced! I wish I would have found him years ago. My son has more confidence and actually enjoys what he has learned. Robert also makes it very convenient to meet. I highly recommend him.
