About Robin


Bio

I am an experienced teacher, certified in three states. I have taught various subjects including Math, Language Arts, Reading, Social Studies, Science, and even Art. For most of my life I have taught in some form or fashion, yet I have been told I am "different" than most teachers. I hold a degree in Middle Grades Education from Kennesaw State University.

I am an experienced teacher, certified in three states. I have taught various subjects including Math, Language Arts, Reading, Social Studies, Science, and even Art. For most of my life I have taught in some form or fashion, yet I have been told I am "different" than most teachers. I hold a degree in Middle Grades Education from Kennesaw State University. I have recently completed three years of graduate work at Marshall University - working toward certification in Mathematics Secondary Education.

I enjoy seeing the "aha" moment on a student's face. I also enjoy giving students the confidence to meet their academic challenges.

I work to convey the foundational concepts of maths. If I can do this, then the algorithms fall into place naturally.

When I teach the fundamentals of grammar and writing, I teach it on the basis of logic. Each part of speech, phrase, or clause calls for a specific structure and mark. So, like building a house, I show students the building blocks of language and how to connect them.

I want to help. If you are stressed and tense as you approach any of the core subjects (I have taught them all), contact me for a new perspective. You are the boss of the numbers. You are in control of what you communicate when you write.

Knowledgeable, kind and patient

Robin is a great Math tutor. Very organized and teaches in a way that is easy to understand. She does a great job following up and giving review. We’re really happy we found her.

Annie, 16 lessons with Robin

Patient and encouraging

Robin is great! She dove right in with my son and found out where his gaps are and immediately started filling them. He is looking forward to his next session!

Meg, 4 lessons with Robin

Patient and knowledgeable

Robin was very patient when reviewing my son’s previous statistics test. She made sure he had a concept of what was going on before proceeding. He’s looking forward to working with her in the future.

Great Experience thus far

Robin is very patient with my daughter. We are truly enjoying the experience. I can see a difference in my daughter's understanding of math.

Alicia, 8 lessons with Robin

First Lesson

My son didn't want a tutor but after his first lesson he wanted to know when his next one was.

Tutor responded:

I am glad he enjoyed the lesson. Learning should be fun!

Excellent and I highly recommend

My son was struggling with middle school math. Ms. Robin was able to focus in on some of his issues ( how he was taking the math test), and provided suggestions and guidance on how to approach the test and read the math problems. Her background as an experienced and certified teacher was obvious. She took the time to read the math teacher's website, so that she was always prepared. She has a teacher's heart and I felt she was genuinely invested on how well he did on his tests. After a couple of weeks of tutoring, my son got an 88 on his midterm!!! He was so happy and I was just grateful we found Ms Robin! I highly endorse Ms. Robin!
