I started teaching Italian in 1985, in McAllen, Texas, as a private tutor. I again kept tutoring Italian, this time for freshmen college students in Sugar Land, Texas in 2015. I am an Italian native speaker, and at the present time I am writing short stories in Italian.

About Robert M.

My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from Curacao, a beautiful island that once was part of The Netherlands and I started teaching since 1973. So far I have been teaching Spanish for 12 years. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Houston. I combine art with any language to teach children up to 2nd grade to make it fun. For any other student, I use my innovative method without books, some sites in the net and we immediately start speaking the language the student wants to learn. But I still have the best books on demand if needed. I customize my lessons to the needs of my students and I am available 24/7 for any questions to make it as easy as possible for my students, no matter their age. I make learning fun and interesting for all my students because I love what I am doing! My students get 24/7 practice opportunities with my innovative teaching method.

I have been taking lessons from Robert for about 6 months and it has been a great experience. Robert takes a very individualized approach and works incredibly hard both during and between lessons to make the lessons relevant to where I am both in terms of the level of content and making the topics covered interesting. It is also obvious that Robert is - at the end of it all - a really good person who is enjoyable to spend time with while learning about both language and culture.

I am a teacher and Department Chair of foreign languages at An independent school. Robert Mirza and I taught together during the 2017 school year.
Robert is an incredibly gifted teacher who is passionate about his subject and his students. It's rare to see such dedication like Robert exhibits.
Robert is going to be a huge asset to any school where he teaches. Please accept my highest praise for this excellent educator!

Experience

French Teacher
Nov 2016 - Jul 2017

Fort Bend Christian Academy

I did teach French for 10th, 11th and 12th graders at this Christian High School. It was a great experience because the students dedication was outstanding, and because the school allowed me to use my own method. My students loved the story of Le Petit Prince, which I used at all my classes to motivate them and to have the same curiosity as the little prince himself to learn French. It was always a success.

Spanish Teacher
May 1973 - Jul 1981

I did teach at my own school in Curacao and Groningen, The Netherlands

I started teaching Spanish to adults in my own school in Curacao, in the Dutch Caribbean, and in Groningen, The Netherlands. And since 1997 in the USA. My students were adult professionals, business owners, nurses, Dutch citizens, American citizens, Dominican Republic citizens. Business owners needed Spanish to sell their products to then wealthy Venezuelans. American citizens did learn to travel, the same for most Dutch citizens. At that time I used my own short stories too, which I still do with my 6-8 yr. old students now, in addition to the stories they like, because if you bore a child, you loose him/her! Conversational skills were and are still my most important goal with mastery of Spanish verbs and tenses. We never used the books just to learn "book language." We talked all the time. My students learn to speak Spanish from lesson one. I started teaching online since October 2018 and I love it because of the one-on-one attention I can give to every and each one of my students!
