I prefer an informal and relaxed teaching style to convey aspects of English Language and Literature. I aim to enable students to access information which will help them understand and ultimately enjoy learning English.
I use contemporary examples such as music, art and life stories to illustrate themes relating to the human experience. I like to show students how to express their interpretation clearly and effectively.
I have a Bachelors Degree in English and a a Higher Diploma in Education. I have taught in South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
I want students to enjoy their lessons while acquiring and building their English skills set.

Robyn was a great help to me as I finished my postgraduate and masters degree - helping edit and review my many essays and eventual thesis. She provided thoughtful and constructive feedback which has helped advance my writing skill set and style. I would highly recommend her!
I have known Robyn as a friend and colleague for many years. She is trustworthy as a friend and as a teacher, Robin is a passionate educator , always professional, knowledgeable, caring, creative and reliable. She is of outstanding character and will be an asset to any academic institution.
I met Robyn in 1991 when our children attended the same school.
Although in different countries now, we remain in constant contact and I count her as my closest friend.
As a teacher she is great, I remember well when she worked with adolescents. The students loved her, and she always got the best out of them.
I highly recommend Robyn to anyone looking for an English teacher. Her ethic is impeccable and she will always go the extra mile for you.
I've known Robyn almost my entire life and studied together with her. Without any hesitation, I can highly recommend Robyn as an honest, trustworthy, reliable and organized person. With all honesty I can say that she is one of the best educators I know.
I've always admired her dedication to her students and the creative and dynamic ways she presents her lessons. She has a knack of knowing exactly how to reach each individual student and bring out the best in them.
