Bio

My approach to tutoring is informed by my past academic struggles. When I was a freshman at Princeton, I quickly realized that my high school, located in an economically depressed area in south Texas, had not adequately prepared me for the diverse range of college coursework.

My approach to tutoring is informed by my past academic struggles. When I was a freshman at Princeton, I quickly realized that my high school, located in an economically depressed area in south Texas, had not adequately prepared me for the diverse range of college coursework. Having had to overcome that, I know the frustration and self-defeating strategies--like procrastination--that students often develop and I am especially sensitive to supporting my students. Sometimes that means being firm, but more often it means celebrating the small successes. I graduated from Princeton with flying colors and graduation day was the proudest moment in my life. I want all of my students to have that moment, which is why I hold myself to the highest standards as a tutor, and why I love to teach. In my lessons, I strive to be creative about different ways to present the material. The added benefit is that neither of us gets bored!

I specialize in preparing students for the SAT, PSAT, and ACT. On occasion, I work with two other companies doing just that. I also tutor up to college-level English and grammar, high school science and math, as well as study skills.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your goals!

Great SAT Math Tutor

Robin has been helping my daughter get ready for the SAT coming up in June. She didn't do as well on the math as she would like the first time. Robin is helping her to retain the information and formulas. We appreciate her time and knowledge!

Very helpful and provides extra material in between

Robin helped our daughter prepare for her upcoming ACT. She is very nice and patient. She was always on time and very courteous. She seems capable in all areas of study and material.

Excellent

My daughter is preparing for the SAT and is very nervous about doing well on it. She met with Robin for the first time last week and my daughter came home so excited about the session and how much Robin was able to help her.

Cynthia, 2 lessons with Robin

NOT boring and straight to the point.

She did a very good job at teaching me the fastest and most efficient ways to solve problems. I was able to constantly test what I have learned and see improvements. Thank you Robin!

Awesome Tutor!

I would highly recommend Robin to anyone that needs help with test taking. But that's not the only thing, she's wicked smart in so many diverse fields. Very easy to contact and on time. What else could you want?
