Mr Rob Lamontagne

 Canberra - Downer

Canberra tutor in Anthropology, Communication, Creative Writing, English, English Literature, ESL, Essay Writing, Geography,... (and more)

Hi, I'm Rob, an American PhD student in Canberra.

I'm back in Canberra conducting PhD research into corruption, but I recently graduated with a first-class MA degree in international relations and diplomacy from the ANU, and hold an honours double BA in English literature and philosophy from Trinity College Dublin.

In between, I worked as a journo, public relations and media strategist, and worked on more than 50 campaigns for a variety of political candidates, not-for-profits and clients in the public sector. I also led two pub quiz trivia teams - That's Unpossible and West Wing Represent - to unprecedented runs in first place of 37 and 28 weeks, respectively.

My areas of expertise are in the humanities - English, writing, social studies, geography, history (Australian, European, North American and world), and international relations - but I'm also skilled in maths and science through Year 12.

Finally, I also have a sideline career as a barman and stand-up comic. Combined with my professional career, I've learned how to make complex topics easily understandable to any audience, even children. (Did you know that press releases are written at a Year 5 level for comprehension?)

I hold a current National Police Clearance, and am available to tutor in northside Canberra.
