ABOUT ROBERT


After years as an actor, radio host/producer/writer and arts administrator, I have decided to share my accumulated knowledge and experience with young people preparing for advanced education and careers. I believe in the Life of the Mind, and I know that the best colleges are looking for students who subscribe to that way of life, as well. With my experience as a writer, editor, producer, and teacher; and my deep understanding of how the tests operate, I have helped many students move toward their dreams, including several who achieved perfect scores.
