About Robinson


Bio

I am well equipped to teach any level of learner in a wide variety of subjects. I started my teaching career teaching English, and I have been about it for a decade now. I am very passionate about teaching. I love to help people explore new ideas, and the sense of progress I experience with my students gets me up in the morning!

I love language learning. I became certified to teach English as a Second/Foreign Language in 2009, and I went on to teach at two international academies in South...

I am well equipped to teach any level of learner in a wide variety of subjects. I started my teaching career teaching English, and I have been about it for a decade now. I am very passionate about teaching. I love to help people explore new ideas, and the sense of progress I experience with my students gets me up in the morning!

I love language learning. I became certified to teach English as a Second/Foreign Language in 2009, and I went on to teach at two international academies in South Korea. I taught second language learners in Korea, and I also helped many native speakers learn how to handle the English language more effectively. I am currently learning German.

I also teach mathematics from elementary math skills through Algebra 1. I taught Math formally for four years. Through my teaching experience, I learned that I am quite fond of learning about and sharing Vedic computational techniques. Vedic techniques are fun to learn and apply. They have the potential to turn you into a human calculator!

I love teaching music. I have a degree in Instrumental Jazz from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. I am prepared to teach music theory and trumpet lessons to beginning and intermediate level players. I love to play regularly, and helping students hone their musicianship always leaves me feeling good.

Whatever you wish to learn about, I have a plethora of engaging methods to incentivize your learning and am excited to help you reach your goals. So, if you are interested in leveling up your English, math, or music abilities, then I am here to help. I will provide you with a quick assessment when we first meet, and your feedback after lessons will always be prompt. Hope to hear from you soon.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math for four years. I know how to incentive young learners to study hard through activity based exercises. I am not an advocate of solely drilling a learner to achieve mastery. The learner also needs to be provided context and a compelling reason to internalize a concept and incorporate it into his or her wheelhouse.

I have four years of teaching math to young learners in South Korea. I have considerable experience learning how to simplify math concepts because these students were also ESL learners! Math, being universal, actually was a great complement to foreign language learning. My endeavors helped me forge myself into both a competent math and English teacher.

Ear Training

I have been training my relative pitch for more than fifteen years. I know many exercises and methods for ear training, and I can pass them along with pleasure. I learned them from scores of music teachers and professors I have met throughout my career as a musician. Ear training is a passion of mine, and I love to explore ear training concepts with eager students.
Trumpet,

Trumpet

I graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA with a BFA in Music. I have learned that the most effective way to teach music is like a language. Music has syntax and vocabulary, too! My goal in teaching you trumpet technique and musicianship will not be to simply help you parrot musical phrases, but to enable you to express yourself as you might while simply speaking. Progress awaits! Talk to you soon!

Knowledgeable and great tutor.

Katheryn, 3 lessons with Robinson

Gifted.

Robinson connected with my teenage son in a way other tutors have not. My son looks forward to his weekly reading sessions with Robinson. My son is more confident in his reading skills and has shown marked improvement with his comprehension. Robinson is also punctual and professional...2 qualities that are hard to come by these days.

Great teacher

Robinson is a rare teacher who makes everything he teaches appealing and engaging. He is a vivid speaker. He keeps my kids alert during the lesson even when it’s a “Grammar” time. He is very creative, responsive to suggestions, polite, great communicator, and just pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him.

Radmila, 110 lessons with Robinson

Amazing Tutor

We have four 4th grade boys and they are extremely active. I was so afraid that I cannot find a tutor who can handle them especially for the writing class. But Robinson absolutely surprised me. He got all the boys fully engaged in the class and don't want to leave after the class. He is an amazing tutor.
