About Robin

Hello! I am excited about the opportunity to tutor you! If you have been frustrated with math or writing in particular, I am here to offer you a fresh perspective and help you find your "ah-ha" moment in the learning process. I believe, especially with math, that if a foundational truth or principle is missed in the course of learning the subject, it hinders the learning of newer concepts because math is a building blocks subject. But once the missing principle is discovered, I have found that students who have been previously not understanding or doing well, now can excel often improving as much as two letter grades. I can also help your child and you with understanding middle and high school math, Common Core Curriculum, K-6 as well as EOG test preparation for 3rd -6th grades.

A bit about me-- I have an undergraduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Rehabilitative Counseling Services and a minor in Psychology. I received my Masters in Public Administration from North Carolina State University with a minor in Adult Education, Training and Development. So why am I tutoring in Math? I have always loved math--it was my "hobby" course, if you will, or the class I took for fun even though it was not required :) I took the advanced placement test for Calculus and placed out of math when I started undergraduate school.

I enjoy seeing young people excel and feel confident in what they are doing. My goal in tutoring is to help you achieve your "ah-ha" moment in understanding.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

Kindergarten - 6th: I have had the privilege of participating in a program to save and propel at risk youth into school success. It was an aggressive program that met three nights a week and Saturday mornings. Using the Wake Co. School system connections, I make lesson plans for whichever grade I was assigned that year. Because of my flexibility and the Director's belief in my talent, I taught grade 1st - 5th grade, Reading, Math and Writing concentration, Kindergarten Special Needs and during our Therapeutic Summer Camp, I facilitated a creative writing camp. It was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences, getting these kids to express their emotions, dreams and just being a kid in written form! I am passionate about every student being able to learn. The learning comes in the discovery of learning style.

Making nice progress!

After several sessions, my son is more confident about his geometry skills. Robin works hard to determine what "blocks" there are to his learning and successful testing. She then works with him in a positive way to improve. We are very pleased with Robin and look forward to continue working with her.
