About Robin

I was a college instructor of English, humanities, and film for 11 years. I usually taught introductory writing/composition and humanities courses. I prided myself on a strong rapport with my students, and I remain in contact with many of them.

I hold three master's degrees. My first, which is from Loyola University, is in English; while I was in this program, I tutored in the university writing center. My second, from DePaul, is in the teaching of writing; in this program, I took a number of courses in analyzing grammar. Finally, my third, from Dominican, is in library and information science. Thus, I can help not only with the writing of papers, but with researching them as well.

I worked as a freelance copy editor for a textbook publisher.

Approved subjects
