Meet Bob

Former public and private school teacher, and certified reading specialist K-12. Experienced in working with students, both elementary and high school, who have learning disabilities, and in challenging more advanced or gifted students. Motivating students and making learning fun are key in my approach. Knowing a young person's interests is important in making this happen. Due to my reading specialist training, I gained experience assessing students' learning problems and finding creative ways of helping them overcome them regardless of the subject matter. For many years I have also worked as a professional editor, both at UC Berkeley and as an independent contractor. In addition, I have coached doctoral students writing their theses. Master's degree in Secondary English Education. 30 additional credits for Reading Specialist Credential (Masters+30), grades K-12. Experience working with kids diagnosed with learning disabilities or dyslexia, and ADHD.

Bob has been amazing. Our son was struggling in school and at risk as he wasn't keeping up with his peers, Bobs diligent efforts have helped our child in such a tremendous way! We are so lucky to have found him!
