I tutored my fellow classmates and some of my younger friends while attending middle and high school. I graduated #5 in my senior class with a GPA of a 4.25 on the 5 point scale.
After graduating, I went on to attend Francis Marion University where I began working in the Mathematics Lab as a true first semester freshman. The Math Lab consisted of 4 classrooms that were sectioned off in one huge classroom. The self-paced classrooms started out in Algebra I and went all the way to Calculus I. My job was to go in any one of the 4 classrooms whenever a student raised his/her hand indicating that they were in need of assistance. Therefore, I had to deal with questions ranging from fairly easy to reasonably hard on a daily basis. I did this the entire 4 and 1/2 years that I spent in college. After graduating, I went on to work as a Math Tutor in Florence-Darlington Technical College's Math Lab and its Student Success Center from 2001-2007 while also holding down another full time job.
I still tutor family members and friends whenever the opportunity arises.
What separates me from other tutors is all of my experience and the fact that I came along before the high-technology calculators. My main different, BUT DEFINITELY EFFECTIVE, teaching method is that I still like using pencil and paper. Therefore I can show all of my work an all of the steps it takes to get to the solution when solving a problem before I move on to my Graphing Calculator!

My son has been working with Robin for the past month and really enjoys his lessons. My son is preparing to take the ASVAB and Robin has been instrumental in helping my son with the math portion. He is patient and works out the problems in a way my son easily understands.
He basically broke down every problem enough to for me to understand it. And if I didn't understand he would repeat it until I understand it.
Algebra. Helped me to accomplish me learn and accomplish my goals. l have a test on Friday and he responded quickly. Thank you robin.
My 13 year old son was struggling in Algebra 1. He had convinced himself that he could not do it. Due to his after school activities his old tutor was not able to accommodate his schedule so I had to obtain another tutor practically over night. Within two sessions my sons D average jumped to a C. I have no doubt that his C will soon turn to a B. Linear Equations rock!
Robin has been a great tutor! We like the fact that he doesn't use a calculator for everything but instead uses pencil and paper. He is very good at explaining the problems. We would recommend him to tutor in trigonometry.
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.
