Former University of Arizona Academic Specialist and quadriplegic author, David “doc” Robertson, wants you to imagine that your son or daughter has left for college at an out of state university and after three or four weeks, suddenly wants to come home. This follows the orientation trip, the dorm deposit, out of state tuition fees, meal fees, books, and all of the purchases for his or her comfort.
Robertson witnessed this scenario, costing tens of thousands of dollars, on several occasions when he counseled students. Now, “The Elements of College Success” a survival guide to help make it through the maze of dead ends and trap doors that can frustrate even the best students with the hope of saving families thousands of dollars by avoiding the above scenario.
Available on Amazon Kindle for under one dollar, Robertson’s guide focuses on the things that matter, such as time management and how it is the Key Element to college success. He also discusses accurate note taking skills, how to prepare for exams, the benefits of living in residence halls, the difficulties of coping with catastrophes, and other topics of concern for students and parents.
The former Academic Specialist counseled students at the University of Arizona until budget cuts closed his department, and he returned home to Southern California. He successfully worked with students having trouble making the transition from high school to college in addition to those caught in the clutches of academic probation.
Robertson has split his career between writing and education. He earned his Master’s Degree in Journalism at the University of Southern California after graduating from UCLA with a BA in English despite his confinement to a wheelchair caused by a high school football accident.
