Robyn is a Native English speaker from Canada. She has a Bachelor of Science and a College Diploma in Environmental Technology. Robyn's teaching qualifications include TESL, TEFL and TESOL certifications with Oxford Seminars, as well as a CELPIP Instructor Certificate (for Canadian language exam preparation). Robyn has classroom experience teaching ESL as a volunteer in Tanzania and Nepal. She has been teaching ESL online to children and adults since 2019.
Robyn is presently learning French and Spanish, and so understands the challenges and effective approaches to language learning. In her online ESL classes, Robyn strives to provide interactive lessons, using conversation to facilitate her students’ development of English vocabulary and grammar skills. Because Robyn has a foundation in the languages of French and Spanish, and has worked with students who speak Chinese, Nepali, and Swahili, she is able to understand the starting points of students from several different language backgrounds, giving her an awareness of the specific sounds that may be challenging for a student, and which concepts in English grammar might not be intuitive. Being flexible, responsive and accommodating makes Robyn the kind of teacher that students achieve results with.
