More than six years teaching experience in History, English, Political Science, E-Learning, and other subjects. Taught 500+ students at every education level, whether one-on-one tutoring, small groups, standard size classes (~30), and large courses with 60 or more students. Students have won provincial and national awards, gained acceptance to American universities from abroad, and achieved or gone beyond their educational goals.
Rob has a lot of experience teaching many different grade levels and cultures. He has all the credentials, certifications and degrees for his backing overflowing on his resume. I've seen him teach numerous times and he has the best teaching method I've ever seen that really gets all of the students interested, wanting to learn and trust him easier than most. He's inspired young students who have suffered from severe depression, chronic illnesses and multiple sclerosis to find hope in living and learning again when other's couldn't. He is the nicest person with the biggest heart you will ever meet, who has vowed to change society through better education. He takes his job and the lives of his students very seriously. Rob has a unique background and knowledge for love of history and hip-hop culture that surprises most, which makes many of his classes interesting and entertaining.
Rob is a very patient, lively, and kind teacher, who always gives his best and inspires you to do the same. In his class, I feel it's very enjoyable and rewarding. I learned a lot in his class, not only from the knowledge and skills I gained, but also embracing the spirt to treat everything with great care and kindness. I'm happy to say I made great progress in his class, and am more than satisfied with the results. If you want to make great progress in IELTS, or any standardized test, he is a great teacher to choose. I highly recommend him.
During my time teaching with Robert, I witnessed a teacher full of tremendous creative energy, patience and passion for his profession. Teaching multi-level classes at the university level in rural China is an exceptionally difficult task, but time and again Robert demonstrated his willingness and desire to continually better himself as a teacher and sacrifice much of his free time to assist students in need. Robert's sense of humour, command of the English language and creative lesson planning truly helped his students attain the challenging goal of learning a second language. Robert set the standard for all other teachers to follow, and he was and still is profoundly respected by both the student body and the faculty as well. Robert's creative guidance helped our Foreign Language Department develop improved curriculum, and our department has thrived as a result of it. He works extremely well with others, and he is extremely dependable in the classroom. He has repeatedly shown that he possesses the temperance and fortitude to thrive in any given academic environment.
