About Robin

I have always had a passion for reading and writing and after 25 years as a research analyst for a major insurance company, I began a new career in education about four years ago.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Management from Ball State University and a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in English Language Learning from Ashford University. I have also worked as a volunteer tutor in the STAR Literacy program since 2000.

In October 2011, I begin teaching an Adult ESL class through the McLean County Regional Office of Education and in 2012 I became an ESL instructor with the Academic English Learner Program at Heartland Community College.

I look forward to working with students of any age who are interested in improving their reading and writing skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's degree in Education and have tutored both adults and children in Elementary Reading and Math through the STAR literacy program.

I also work part-time as an instructor with the Enopi Bloomington teaching reading and math enrichment courses in students K-8.

ESL/ESOL

I received a Master's of Education with a concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language from Ashford University in August 2011 and graduated with a 4.0 out of 4.0 GPA.

I have been a volunteer ESL tutor with the McLean County STAR Literacy program and have recently been hired as a paid instructor to teach a new ESL class for parents at Cedar Ridge Elementary School in Bloomington.

Needlework

I have been knitting and crocheting for over 40 years. I learned the basics from my grandmother at age 8 and have since studied different techniques. I have made and given blankets, baby clothing, and sweaters to friends and relatives for many years. I have also sold a number of winter hat and scarf sets online. I am a patient teacher and would love to share the ability to create beautiful and practical items with anyone who wants to learn.

Public Speaking

I am an experienced public speaker with over 10 years of experience in Toastmaster's International where I achieved the Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) designation and won various club and area contests for speaking, evaluating, and participating in TableTopics.

Reading

I worked for 10 years as a volunteer Reading tutor with the STAR Literacy program. I now teach English as a Second Language at Heartland Community College.

Study Skills

I was a volunteer tutor with the STAR Literacy program for over ten years and assisted both children and adults in improving their reading, writing, and study skills. I have a Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems from a traditional university and a Master's degree in Education where a significant number of the courses were completed online. I also have more than 200 hours of experience as a tutor with WyzAnt and as a paid tutor and instructor at Heartland Community College.

I am able to develop study plans for students based upon their own individual learning styles including note taking, highlighting, using flashcards, models or other manipulatives, auditory strategies including utilizing books and notes on CD, or mapping strategies.

Excellent Tutor! — Robin has been tutoring my 1st grade son for several months now with reading and math. We have seen such significant improvement in his grades! We couldn't be happier with their progress, and my son says "I even like math now". I appreciate that she took her time to evaluate where my son was in his learning process and how to best bring him up to grade level (or beyond). She comes prepared wit ...
