About Robin


Bio

I have over 5,000 hours of tutoring experience in multiple subjects with students from ages 5 through adult.
Many of those hours have been working with students on SAT/ACt prep, as well as CBEST prep. Many of my students had various disabilities, which I enjoyed helping them work through. I have learned that a disability label does not mean that there is a one-size-fits-all solution for all the students with that label; students are individuals with individual struggles and strengths.

I have over 5,000 hours of tutoring experience in multiple subjects with students from ages 5 through adult.
Many of those hours have been working with students on SAT/ACt prep, as well as CBEST prep. Many of my students had various disabilities, which I enjoyed helping them work through. I have learned that a disability label does not mean that there is a one-size-fits-all solution for all the students with that label; students are individuals with individual struggles and strengths. I enjoy discovering what strategies work with my individual students and helping them use those strategies to achieve success in school and on tests.
I had several students that I worked with on both reading/writing and math during the school year, and I also taught an elementary writing class on Saturdays. I love planning individual lessons to fit each student's learning style to emphasize their learning potential. Watching each student succeed at something that they used to struggle with is a wonderful blessing!
I have a bachelor's degree in English and my passion is British literature. I am a certificated teacher for grades 6-12, although I tutor elementary students as well. I truly enjoy working with those students who want to succeed but struggle for various reasons. I have a teenager who has spent his entire school career struggling with learning disabilities, so I have learned through working with him how to make material interesting and personal in order to facilitate long term memory and learning. I have done extensive research into various learning disabilities and strive to find the best way for an individual to learn. I believe that all students can become strong readers and writers through strategies and practice. I am a positive person who believes that everyone has the potential to succeed. I look forward to meeting your student and helping them reach their potential!

Knowledgeable and patient

Robin help me learn a great strategy on how to pass my Cbest. Robin is very knowledgeable in math and understanding how to eliminate some answers to find the correct one.

Susan, 10 lessons with Robin

Exceptional

Robin is knowledgeable, patient, and has been very effective in her work with our son. Robin has been able to discover gaps in learning and improve our sons overall academic understanding as well as performance in his pre-algebra class. She’s also done a great job of calming built-in math anxiety. We highly recommend her!
