Personal Description:

Robert Allan spent the majority of his early years in Ohio, where he obtained a B.A. degree in History and Secondary Education at Walsh University. Prior to that he was the 964th AWAC Squadron's Assistant Historian, Airman of the Quarter, and learnt history from Professor William Savage whilst attending evening classes at the University of Oklahoma

Tutoring Experience:

Robert held a provisional certificate to teach History in Ohio and is permanently licensed to teach History in England & Wales. He was the first prize co-winner of a free market game design contest in 1994 by the Foundation for Economic Education.

After leaving the U.S. he studied at De Montfort University in England and the University of Wales at Bangor, supporting himself through teaching and coaching. He trained as a sociologist at Bangor, where he was awarded an MPhil in Sociology through the Centre for Comparative Criminology. Prior to that he earned a Post-graduate Diploma in Historical and Cultural Appraisals of Sport at De Montfort.

He has wide experience in his teaching career: he's worked as a substitute teacher, teacher in private practice, elementary teacher, secondary teacher, prison school teacher, public school teacher, private school teacher, Head Coach, College Lecturer, Director of Sport, and Educational Administrator. He was a doctoral student in Sociology at the University of Birmingham, UK in 2009 until the Department was terminated in 2010. He has since followed his supervisor to the University of Huddersfield and was awarded a PhD. Robert currently teaches Sociology at Lorain County Community College in Ohio.

Tutoring Approach:

Although Robert has recently returned to Ohio to teach Sociology, Robert can tutor university undergraduates via the internet. Robert believes that every student can experience success. He took his philosophy to Baverstock School in Birmingham, which then was a new school formed from the merger of three failing schools. Robert not only produced British, British Schools, and English Champions in the sport of Olympic Wrestling whilst coaching at Baverstock Grant-Maintained School in Birmingham, he did so simultaneously at other schools as well, including Croft Street JMI School in Walsall, Stuart Bathurst Roman Catholic School in Wednesbury, and Bushloe High School in South Wigston. During this period, his wrestlers appeared on such television programs as Nickelodean's School of the Week, Channel Four News, and Birmingham Cable. Robert's many achievements included Baverstock's Wrestling team captain Matthew Viney invitation to wrestle for his country as a member of the UK Cadet Squad in Sep '99 and Baverstock wrestler Owen Prew's successful admittance to Oxford afer being initially declined. Not gutted, Prew drew upon his uneven fortunes on the wrestling mat to reapply the following year. 'I believe every student can experience success whether in or out of a classroom', says Robert.
