About Robin


Bio

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.

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 adjusted my employment in 2015 and taught a principles of engineering course at a local high school. Currently, I work as a substitute teacher and teach professional development seminars for practicing engineers. 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.)

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.

patient and knowledgeable tutor

Robin jump-started my son and made him confident to finish his assignment Independently. He now has excellent notes to rely on. My son often thinks he understands things better than he really does. Robin set him on the right track.

My daughter needed just a little help with doing her homework since she had absences from school due to illness. Robin was able to catch her up in less that an hour. My daughter was disappointed that Robin had to look up things during the lesson. But I think it is the mark of a good teacher to look things up when you are unsure. Also, we really didn't give her any preparation on what my daughter's needs were prior to the appointment.

Knowledgeable and very nice.

My daughter had a great 1st lesson with Robin. She was very knowledgeable and easy going. My daughter feels she's prepared for her precalc test. We would definitely use her again.

So far, after 1 session, we are pleased. Robin is knowledgeable in the math field and does have patience. My granddaughter likes her.

Great tutor!

We worked on the beginning concepts of Trig and now I understand them. She was very patient and helpful. I highly recommend her to anyone taking Trigonometry!!
