Academic Profile

My name is Professor Anthony Romano and I have been a college instructor for almost 15 years; in that time, I have taught at multiple schools including Montclair State University, Ocean County College, Middlesex County College, and Fairleigh Dickinson University.  I earned my Master’s in Counseling and English Rhetoric at Montclair State University and Northern Arizona University.  For over 16 years, I was a professional writer for the State of New Jersey, tasked with writing reports on children that were removed from their homes by the State due to unfortunate circumstances of the birth family’s situation.  During that time, I wrote thousands of personal reports as well as hundreds of court reports for Middlesex County.

When it comes to my teaching style, my background in counseling is fully utilized.  I take a strong interest in what is beneath the surface.  This usually involves analysis, which can help one understand how something works or what something means.  We all see things differently and how we see these things can help us learn in our own unique way. 

My teaching style is modeled after psychologist Carl Rogers’s Rogerian Approach, which translates to student-centered education.  Basically, I try to meet my students where they are academically and then proceed from there.  Everyone has strengths and everyone can use their background and experiences for success.  That is my belief and that is what interests me when it comes to student/teacher research. 

My hobbies include writing and collecting older comic books.  When I am not busy with my classes, I spend all of my free time with my wife and my son.
