About Robert

Hi, I'm Gerry and I really am an expert in AP English Literature: I have taught the course for over 20 years, graded the national exam ten times, and taught workshops, institutes, and graduate seminars for other AP teachers. I currently enjoy a great relationship with national NMSI and TIP programs, federally funded programs aimed at getting low scoring students to rise to the AP level. I taught at the university level before discovering my real love was the daily interchange with high school students. My students last year voted me the most creatively alive faculty on the staff of our suburban, highly rated high school and this year as the most popular. So, I suppose besides being rigorous and clear, i msu be somewhat amusing. I have taught a course in London on how to be a stand-up comedian. And, oh yes, I have directed theatre professionally both in America and abroad. I spent a year teaching in England's professional theatre training schools as part of a Fulbright award.
