Robert

Hello,

I have a BS in Business from Northeastern University and an MBA from University of Massachusetts-Boston. I teach Marketing at Bentley University, Clark University, and UMass-Boston.

I tutor subjects across the entire spectrum: sciences and math, Spanish, and also writing, English and social studies.

In my tutoring I like to utilize a practical learning style where we use real-life examples. Sometimes I include other forms of media in my teaching which makes it a lot more fun (and relevant).

Outside of academic I am a volunteer with various rare disease organizations in the Boston healthcare community. I am deeply committed to helping people with rare diseases.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to immerse students in practical learning experiences.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would get to know the student's interests and goals.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can teach them the study skills they need for self-directed study.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would provide milestones and a full goal plan with incremental steps in that process.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would teach them in a more practical way.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

I would ask them to write about what they just read.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

I have found that practical learning examples are most successful.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

I would relate it back to something they enjoy.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I would quiz them on the material.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

I would review the material with them regularly and provide encouragement.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I learn where they are struggling and how they have progressed, according to our project plan.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

I understand different students have different needs, so I would teach accordingly.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

I typically use videos, case studies, and, sometimes, I will use the questions in the textbook.
