Robert was knowledgeable and interesting, but even more importantly he was very helpful. I've watched several videos on Final Draft and needed someone who knew the program and could help me with specific questions and Robert delivered! I enjoyed working with him.

I have been working with Robert for a couple of months now and he has been amazing. He has immensely helped me with my screenwriting and has taught me so many valuable pieces of information. He is not only knowledgeable, but he makes learning fun. I can tell he truly loves what he does. I was able to complete my second screenplay with his help and can't wait to continue writing while applying what I learn from him each week. I would DEFINITELY recommend Robert to anyone who is working on any type of writing project.

Robert is an excellent instructor. He is kind, patient, and highly knowledgeable. The quality of my creative writing for both fiction and non-fiction has improved dramatically under his guidance. Highly experienced, Robert is masterful at explaining the ingredients that make up a great story, and teaching you how to bake these ingredients into your own unique and wonderful works of art. Thanks to Robert, my passion for creative writing has expanded, and so has my confidence. I can hardly wait for my next lesson!

Robert has been supporting my daughter as she completes her college essays. He takes time to get to know her so that her voice and ideas come through on paper. His insightful feedback helps take her work to the "next level" and motivates her to push on. Robert has an easygoing nature and top-notch skills, which combine to remove some of the stress of this process. Wish we found him sooner! Highly, highly recommend!!

- Dara L. from Los Angeles, CA
Robert is a very creative and lively person, no doubt! With his help, I was able to write college essays that I'm really proud of. During our sessions, his friendly nature put me at ease and allowed me to comfortably express my ideas. When I was stuck, he asked really good questions that got me brainstorming. With his fresh perspective, I was able to fill in the gaps in my narrative that needed further explaining. When my essays ran over the word limits, he was excellent in helping me trim them down. Highly recommend!
