I am a recently retired licensed Special Education Teacher with over 20+ years of progressive experience serving infants, toddlers and students in grades K-12 with a broad variety of developmental issues. I also had the opportunity to teach Special Education Kindergarten and the KIDS program. I am an extremely compassionate and patient person who acutely attunes herself to children’s individual academic functioning, emotional/affective needs and diverse learning styles. I have been recognized by multi-disciplinary education teams and parents as a gifted, creative and nurturing teacher. My extensive background includes working with children with Autism and Aspergers Syndrome in addition to children who are nonverbal or experience difficulty in receptive and/or expressive language skills. I can teach and communicate the fundamentals in sign language. As a Learning Specialist at The Children’s Hospital in Colorado, I presented departmental in-services on teaching strategies for children with ADD/ADHD. I served on the educational panel at the Rosenberry Conference, providing expertise to national cross-disciplinary mental health and educational professionals on instructional methodologies for children with Aspergers Syndrome.
I simply love what I do!
Couldn't have asked for more
Robin has been tutoring my son for the last couple of months. In this short time I have seen such an improvement in my son's confidence, and grades in school. Robin is very caring, and truly shows a passion for tutoring children. My son suffers from ADHD, and what she has been able to accomplish with him in such a short time, has been nothing short of remarkable. To top all of it off, my son really enjoys working with her, and looks forward to there sessions together. For the first time, I have seen my son really care about his academic progress, and has begun to have a true passion in his work. I would highly recommend Robin for any child that has challenges in his/her schooling. She is a great motivator, extremely patient, and very detail oriented. Struggling in my past to find the perfect tutor, I am extremely happy my son and I found her. I could not have asked for a better tutor for him.Thomas, 58 lessons with Robin

Knowledgeable and patient
My son has a hard time transitioning into new settings, and Robin does a great job getting him engaged and interested to start his lesson. He works well with her. She is patient and shows she cares and is committed. My son is a special needs student and Robin is very knowledgeable in what exactly he needs. She is a great addition to our team!Nadine, 8 lessons with Robin

Thank you, Robin, for all of your hard work!Ken, 18 lessons with Robin
Robin is a life-saver! Our 3rd grader was struggling with reading comprehension and math. We tried everything without any improvement and decided that a tutor would be best. Robin is wonderful at making our child feel comfortable even when he doesn't know the answers, she's inquisitive and engaging and our son has responded so well to the whole experience. In the few months she has been his tutor his Reading comprehension and math grades are up, which is a big improvement for him. Honestly, we didn't expect to see results so soon, if at all, and we have Robin to thank for that. If you are looking for someone who is genuine, reliable, and knowledgeable Robin is the tutor for you or your child. As our son likes to say ,"I can't wait for Robin to come over next time!"Jaumannet, 5 lessons with Robin
I wanted to get my son a tutor so he would be better prepared for first grade and not forget some of the important things he learned over summer vacation. I am very pleased with the progress my son has made with Robin. Robin has been very professional and amazing with my son. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.Samantha, 7 lessons with Robin
Robin works hard to tailor the lessons to what our daughter needs. When we've suggested changes, she takes it to heart and has worked hard to make the lessons interesting and fun. Our daughter is making great progress with her.Chris, 28 lessons with Robin
First Session: 5 Stars!
Just wanted to state that my first experience with Robin B. has been beyond my expectations. It was quite a relief to hear my daughter going through her homework and being repeatedly acknowledged for the good work she was doing. It was in complete contrast to my, I'm embarrassed to say, impatient and frustrating episodes trying to help my baby girl with her homework. Hearing my daughter's "Mommy, I'm so confused" and seeing the tears fall down her face, for the third time, was the push I needed to make the financial investment required for tutoring. There were less costly options than Robin B; however, I was concerned that my daughter may have had some kind of learning disability, and Robin has the experience and the credentials. So the savings $10-$15 for a less qualified tutor, for me, was not an option. I have to say, the investment has already paid off and I'm really looking forward to seeing the development over the next few weeks and months. My daughter is in the first grade and has been having challenges with math and reading.Christine, 2 lessons with Robin
