About Robin

I truly enjoy seeing those I teach "get it" and have that "ah ha" moment. A structural engineer by trade, I have to continually learn new things each and every day. It's my job! Math is my specialty of course, but I don't fit the mold as a typical engineer as I enjoy interacting with people too.

Tutoring experience? Well...besides the hours on wyzant tutoring mostly algebra and trigonometry I have previously volunteered to teach at engineering outreach events at the Buffalo Museum of Science, the New York State Fair, and at a few Buffalo Public Schools' engineering day. Most of the teachers thought I was a teacher and not an engineer. They were a bit shocked when I said I was a practicing engineer. I have adjusted my employment this past year and taught a principles of engineering course at a local high school. I teach a class for pre-teens at my church too. And I tutored my friends through their high school math way back when.

Times are flexible but I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Hey, I want to be able to plan my day too! It is my desire to help students in a positive, friendly, and fun atmosphere. I look forward to future contact. Have a wonderful day!

(You will be charged for a lesson if it is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.)

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.

AutoCAD

I have used AutoCAD from the time I graduated from college 14 years ago. I have drafted structural plans, details, and sections. I use mostly keyboard shortcuts, especially ones that are left handed. This way, I can keep my right hand on the mouse and use the keyboard with my left. I am proficient at 2D cad work including polylines, shapes, dimensions, offsets, layers, lineweights, styles, etc.

Civil Engineering

I took classes toward a civil engineering degree at SUNY Buffalo for two years. I have a BS degree from the Milwaukee School of Engineering for Architectural Engineering with a Structural Specialty. I am a licensed Professional Engineer in New York state. I have worked as a Structural Engineer for 13 years. Structural engineering is an offshoot of civil engineering.

Very innovative teacher! — I called Robin when one of my sons was almost failing his first year of high school math. My other son was doing OK but wanted to do better. Robin worked with both of them. They both have very different learning styles and abilities. She quickly adapted her teaching style to each of them to help them understand the math. Robin truly seems to enjoy math and has fun doing extra puzzles and fun t ...
