About the lesson

While I hold other jobs, I am writer, freelance editor/proofreader, and tutor. I tutor a wide range of ages: children, teenagers, college/graduate students and adults. I try to help the student learn how to learn the material, through using mnemonics, looking for patterns, associating new material with ideas already learned, and providing background information on the topic. I also like to employ the Socratic method to make the student realize how much he or she already knows and challenge the student to make the next conceptual step in learning. I try to get to know a student's particular learning style--visual, auditory, verbal--and accommodate it.

About Robert

I first tutored over 25 years ago, helping my friend pass the math exam required to graduate from Maryland public high schools. A few years ago, he told me (with some exaggeration, I assume!) that the day he learned that he passed the exam was the happiest day of his life. I began tutoring regularly in college, and have since tutored close to twenty students in English (including ESL), reading, phonics, spelling, Hebrew, American and world history, and arithmetic. In particular, my ESL and Hebrew students have told me that I helped them considerably in mastering the language.
