My name is Robin Burnette and I am an adjunct professor at a local university who loves tutoring students in my free time. I have a Master of Arts in Latin American Studies and a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and Spanish. I have been tutoring for about 3 years in Spanish. I also have a focus area of geography and history. I enjoy tutoring and watching students learn in unique ways.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I am all about finding student-specific ways of learning. Once I learn how a student learns best, I can tailor tutoring sessions accordingly.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know them and try to find what areas they need improvement in.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would work with that student to find a way that is easier for them to understand.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Take it step by step and remember that patience is key.
