Experienced educator in English & History

History, Reading & Comprehension, Writing High School Only, English as a Second Language


My name is Rob and I am experienced educator with over 10 years experience teaching and tutoring in South Korea, New York City, and the Bay Area. I achieved my BA in Communications with a minor in History and followed that up with an MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages) from The New School in New York. I spent 9 years working with high school students and adult international students and most recently, I was the Director of Education for a tutoring center in Piedmont.

I believe that it is extremely hard for high school students to do well with assignments because grammar isn't taught very well and they are missing basic writing principles and essay strategies. No matter where I have taught, I was always put in charge of writing and I believe that is my strong suit. I can help with essays for any class plus college admission essays. 

I am available for virtual tutoring or will come to your home if there is an outdoor area to work on. Please contact me for more details. Thanks for your time.
