Hi, my name is Robin and I’m from St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. Minnesota is known for having thousands of lakes, extremely cold winters, Prince (the musician), and Snoopy (the cartoon character).
I love exploring the world. I've traveled in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Europe, Morocco, and, most recently, Japan. I’m motivated to teach English because I would like to return to Japan, one day, and teach there in person.
In January 2020 I earned a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL)/ Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). I tutor students in all areas of academic study at a local middle school, and I work as a landscape designer during the summer. I am passionate about teaching and gardening. Both require patience, organization, creativity, and attention to detail. These are skills I can provide as your private tutor. I would be happy to teach the following beginner, intermediate or advanced level lessons:
1. Free talk
2. Textbooks, 100 Power Topics, 100 Power Topics for Business
3. American Drama, “Desperate Housewives”
4. Internet Free Resources; news, magazines, stories, reading and listening sites
5. Song lyrics and music videos. Choose your favorite English song for interpretation.
