ยซ Robin has quite the background and experience for this field as I have done projects with her at our university. She is reliable, communicates effectively, and is professional throughout. From one on one tutoring to the classrooms settings she is able to manage her time and resources for students. Most importantly Robin is able to connect to the varying learning styles of her students in an efficient manner. She also has the technical skills needed for online learning forums which were gained from her educational background. ยป

Educationalist with 3 years of teaching experience and an MSc. in Education from the University of Oxford

Methodology

My teaching philosophy is that everyone has the potential to learn; it is up to the teacher to assist the student in developing that potential through various methods so that no one is left behind. I take a personalized, student-centered approach with every student I am fortunate enough to instruct, aiming to encourage the development of resilient, life-long learners.

Background

I am a graduate of the University of Oxford with 3 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have taught, tutored, and advised students of all ages in the following areas: EFL, literature, test prep, dissertation writing, and time management skills.
