About Robin

I have been a language teacher for over 20 years. While living in Spain, I began teaching English to native Spaniards and visiting foreigners. Here in the U.S., I have taught many levels of Spanish and English to many different age groups. I really love to see the "light go on": when a student finally realizes that s/he can communicate with someone from another culture. The whole world opens up for her/him!

I teach using TPR/TPRS, a method that allows students to start comprehending and speaking by DOING: the same way you learned your first language as a child.

I have taught many levels of English over the years and can intuitively spot where students need more help. Also, having learned a second language myself, I understand both sides of the learning curve.

I understand both sides of the coin when students learn a language. I know how frustrating it is to get bogged down in the grammatical elements of a language. I like for students to start comprehending and speaking from the first day. I think language learning should always be fun. It is really one of the most useful tools you can ever have.
