Information about Robyn
I am a qualified science teacher with 9 years` of experience working in London secondary schools.
I have also been tutoring for the last seven years and I am proud to say that all of my students have either achieved or surpassed their target grades. Please read my reviews for more information.
I began my career as an SEN teaching assistant so I am confident in my ability to work with students with additional needs. I then began teaching full time in an inner London secondary school whilst completing my PGCE, in which I achieved a distinction. After my training year I was offered the position of Head of chemistry which I have held for the past 5 years.
I have also been employed as a GCSE and A-Level exam marker for several years. I have literally marked thousands of papers! So I know the most common mistakes students make, and the topics they find the hardest. This allows me to pinpoint the areas to focus my attention, allowing even the most able students to improve.
I have developed my own PowerPoints and collections of exam questions for the AQA GCSE specifications and the AQA and OCR A-level chemistry specifications. I am happy to share these resources with you to support your learning.
I mainly teach GCSE science and A-Level chemistry classes. However, I also have experience tutoring KS3 science and maths, or science prep for 11/13+ exams and IB chemistry.
I have recently started teaching GCSE science equivalency testing for trainee teachers. I have a range of PowerPoints and exam questions that are tailored to this course that I can share with you to support your progress.
Availability: -Online lessons only for AQA and Edexcel GCSE/iGCSE sciences and AQA and OCR A-level chemistry

Feedback For Robyn (23)
Robyn helped my daughter by giving her feedback on a chemistry assessment and my daughter found the session very useful. She was very engaging and my daughter seemed to warm to her straight away. My daughter and I are very pleased and impressed.
Robyn is very structured and makes sure student is learning. We didn`t have her for long however from the few lessons she thought our son I could see that she is well prepared and knowledgable. I gave average stars for the site as it doesn`t allow you to cancel a lesson if less than 24 hours even if it is still within the working hours ie before 5.30pm.
Robyn is an amazing tutor. My daughter has benefitted hugely from her well structured lessons/teaching in physics. After just few months of tutoring, Ts GCSE mock results were outstanding. Thank you!
Shes very personal, ny daughter are very picky but shes very happy with Robyn we give he 5 stars As she deserves. Thank you
Our daughter lacked confidence in chemistry and was considering swapping her A level choices after previously succeeding in and enjoying the subject. We found Robyn - our daughters confidence grew, she started to get As and Bs but most of all her love for the subject came back. Thank you!
Robyn is a reliable well structured Tutor and she turned my daughter from a scape pass/ fail to a solid pass. She is very knowledgeable of her subject matter and teaches it well. Thanks Robyn for all your support and I highly recommend you. R
After 5/6 weeks of tutoring, our 3 daughters are now much more confident and able to explain science topics that they could not previously understand. Our daughters have enjoyed the tutor sessions and found Robyns style practical and easy to understand.
Highly recommend, very clear explanations and great resources.
Since Robyn has been tutoring my Yr10 (going into Yr11 in Sept) son, his confidence has grown enormously as has his interest in the sciences. He looks forward to his sessions each week and is benefitting so much from Robyn`s expertise. I have no doubt that Robyn will help my son to reach his potential in his science GCSE`s next summer and her support has proved absolutely vital during the pandemic where his school teaching has been almost non-existent. I highly recommend Robyn.
Robyn has been great at online tutoring for my Yr8 son shes calm and efficient with the technology and remote learning, very much on top of all aspects of her subject and engages him very well for the full lesson (which isnt easy!). Shes quickly identified areas to work on, challenged him on the work and given him great confidence in the subject. Many thanks!
Robyn has been tutoring my daughter in all sciences during lockdown. She is very helpful, knowledgeable and my daughter has benefited greatly from the sessions. Robyn also provided useful resources every week to aid in the teaching. Thank You
Really friendly and productive tuorials - an excellent tutor.
I`ve been receiving regular tuition from Robyn for a few weeks now. I am working towards taking a GCSE science equivalency test and Robyn has been taking me through the topics. My science knowledge is extremely rusty and in some areas virtually non existent but she has put together a plan that makes it all accessible to me and her lessons are well planned. She is prompt and friendly and takes time to explain areas that I don`t understand while keeping a good pace to the lesson. She emails me the work that we complete each lesson along with some extra practice questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing some help with the 3 sciences. Her knowledge of the curriculum is excellent and up to date and I am hugely grateful to her for agreeing to tutor me!
Robyn has been of great help for my daughter. Her lessons are very well structured and was able to identify the key areas that for improvement and development and managed that my daughter improved really quickly. We won`t be able to see the final score she would have got as GCSEs have been cancelled, but she did improve a lot between the first and the second set of mocks.
Great tutor, always tries to answer any questions as well a possible, understands what different exam boards want, e.g. how much detail, which details, and which keys terms they look for, understands the material well and great at clarifying stuff. I thoroughly recommend Ms Robyn.
We are so pleased to have Robyn as a tutor. She is a very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and reliable.
Robyn, is a professional experienced teacher who works a plan for our son to achieve A and A*. would definitively recommend.
Robyn is an excellent tutor. She is incredibly knowledgeable in her subject area and this comes across in her teaching. My son has found her lessons interesting and engaging and his grades have improved considerably. I would highly recommend Robyn.

Robyn is efficient, well prepared, organized and punctual.
Robyn is a gifted teacher with a thorough understanding of the curriculum. She has a comprehensive knowledge of her subjects and teaches in a way in which her students are able to grasp complex problems. Excellent tutor.
Robyn tutored my son for GCSE Sciences (Biology, Chemistry & Physics). She was easy to communicate with, always punctual and very organised. My son really enjoyed working with her and his science knowledge improved drastically. These tutorials were very focussed on the GCSE syllabus and Robyn tailored her teaching to suit my sons needs and speed. He has now taken his exams and achieved excellent results. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Robyn.
We have been very happy with the excellent start Robyn has made with our daughter.
