I have been tutoring for over 15 years at all levels of math and science, as well as for most standardized tests. I LOVE to see a student go from "This is too hard" to "This isn't so bad!"

I am a chemistry and math nerd who has also taken a few engineering classes. I have a B.S. in chemistry with a minor in mathematics and an M.S. in chemistry, both from Baylor University. I also taught chemistry for five years at Boise State University. All my standardized test scores are from my first time taking the test with very little preparation. I actually enjoy taking tests (weird I know).

I am very skilled at helping others to learn the topics presented, improve their test-taking strategies, and improve their score. You must "think like the test writers" and be prepared for every twist and turn they will throw your way. My schedule is very flexible, and I will work hard with you to meet your goals. Also, you must be committed to working outside of the tutoring sessions to solidify your learning and skills. I look forward to meeting you!

Robin helped me immensely with the GRE prep. I had take. The exam 2 times before working with Robin and could never get my quantitative scores where I wanted them. She took the time to not only explain how to work these problems, but also the logic and reason behind how these worked. She always had plenty of resources to pull extra practice problems from and made sure to spend our time as efficiently as possible. After working with Robin I got the scores I wanted and would recommend her to anyone looking to get those extra points!

I needed to review math since I had to take a test to get a promotion. I hadn't done any math in a LONG time and was very rusty. Robin was very patient and helped me understand why I needed to work things out the way I did so it wasn't just memorization. I took the test and I made 97%!!! I wouldn't have been able to pass it without her help.
