I always tailor my teaching & plans to the student(s) in question; even in group settings, I am adept at observing individual nuances & proceeding accordingly within the exercises. Prior to singular or multiple sessions I ascertain what the goals of the pupil(s) is/are & insure I comprehend the concepts from their perspective(s). I proceed to select & plan topics in a particular order conducive to scaffolding skills through exercises & explanation. I am experienced at applying various befitting techniques to convey the desired & necessary knowledge; i.e. there isn’t a ‘One-Size-Fits-All’ curriculum. Most importantly, I use passion & humor to engage & inspire my students. It’s vital to nurture a sense of play & imagination in a safe exploratory environment in order to properly learn this craft & apply it.
I am a teacher & performer who has worked with children & young adults of all ages. I have a BA in English with a focus on Creative Writing, & have training in multiple performing arts disciplines. I studied at renowned institutions such as DePaul University Theatre School & Second City Training Center & Conservatory; I have been acting since I was school aged. Writing for stage & screen is in my wheelhouse as well, as I have directed & worked on multiple independent film projects. I love helping young people harness their creative energy & passion, & focus/fine tune their abilities in a manner that suits their individual goals. I’m a major proponent in self discovery & growth. I believe that youths may be the most authentic artists of all life stages, & I thrive on their successes.
Robin worked with my two children for 15 years. She was not only a sitter but a teacher and helped our children with school work and community skills. They adored her and she became a part of our family and still pet sits for me. She is kind and loves sparking imagination. She is well read, smart, engaging and caring. Your children will love her. Happy to serve as a reference. Jeannine Cordero
Amazing, talented individual with exceptional creativity and ability to convey her enthusiasm to all audiences, including children under her care and tutelage. I’ve known Robin for many years and have seen her onstage soaking up the limelight, behind camera creating art and working with children of all ages- all in an endeavor to have positive impact on the people around her. A true light. She’s fantastic and my kids adore her.
Robin has a passion for acting and has been working with children for over 20 years. She is fabulous!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Robin since high school. Her passion for acting and her enthusiasm for sharing that passion are unquestionable. She fluidly balances real-world experience with critical aspects of theory. I have seen firsthand how, as a dual-goal professional, she values not only a student's progression in their craft, but also their growth as a good human. You will rarely find such an engaging, funny, and driven educator. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
