Qualifications & Experience

Hello and thank you for reviewing my credentials. I have had the pleasure of improving the English and writing skills for many students on individual projects (including application essays and dissertations) as well as test preparations. I have worked with both mainstream and special needs students from age 12 through college age and above.

In addition to serving as editor-in-chief and general manager for a highly-respected California trade publication for over five years, my professional experience include work for Fortune 200 corporations and not-for-profits as a communications director, communications manager, program manager and content director. I can tell you that in my experience every arena of employment - including federal, state, private industry and not-for-profit services - excellent communication skills have proven to be hallmarks of the most successful professionals.

You will find me engaged, energetic and supportive as an instructor and collaborator. I look forward to helping you sharpen your abilities and discover your talents.

I have a current background check (for a previous employer) as well as an additional (and current) one through the California Department of Health and Human Services.

Robert was great. He worked with my high school daughter who was having lots of problems with her writing. She was good in other subjects but this was hard for her. He helped her learn to express her ideas the right way. She said she thought it would be boring but instead she loved it because he helped her find her own voice.

I hired Robert to help me with my master's thesis statement. I was way, way off and he got me on track. His feedback was always constructive and helpful.

This man is the definition of patience. My son has a learning disability and was falling behind with this studies. Robert wasn't just a tutor he was a coach. He didn't bring in a bunch of lesson plans but used material my son already liked. He really benefited from his private lessons and enjoyed working with Robert who also has a great sense of humor.
