Rob's Videos


My ten years in the field of language acquisition include teaching, curriculum design, program administration, and professional development, as well as five years as leader at a Boston nonprofit; I've worked abroad in Asia and here in Greater Boston, teaching young learners, young adults studying English for academic purposes (EAP), and adult immigrants in community adult learning centers. In the near future I intend to branch out into materials development, research, and more entrepreneurial ventures. And travel. A lot.

Student Testimonials

When I first came to Boston five years ago, my knowledge of the English language was non-existent. I truly cannot express how lucky I am that I had Rob as a teacher. Not only was his ability to break down and teach English to us amazing, but he also encouraged us to not be afraid to make mistakes. Although I became fluent in English, I still cannot find the words to explain how wonderful my experience with him was.

When you are studing with Rob you don´t have the feeling that you are learning with a teacher. You are learning with a friend. Rob have the perfect skills to connect with you. It doesn´t matter where you come, your age or nature. He knows how to adopt to you, you don´t have to adapt to him.

From 2008 to 2011, Rob was my English teacher. With his support and training, I could prepare myself for law school admission and successfully finished JD program.

Rob is a fantastic teacher who is able to bring out the best in his students. He is professional, highly knowledgeable, and friendly. With his guidance and support I was able to translate my resume into English, and got a job in the industry that I wanted. He is also very creative and has a great sense of humor, so his classes are always fun and interesting.

Rob's teaching skills and guidance enabled me to make significant progress with my English proficiency. I would describe Rob as professional, patient, highly knowledgeable, and supportive. His lessons were engaging and motivating.

Rob's classes are a pure delight! His teaching manner is respectful and unassuming; Rob is always there to make you feel comfortable and supported in class! What really amazes me about Rob is his passion for teaching: He uses all the available resources to spark interest in students and engage them in the process of learning.
