Robyn helped me with my university law studies. Robyn is professional, knowledgeable, and patient. As an experienced corporate lawyer, she offers perspective on how lawyers approach problems; this reinforced the rigorously clear and logical approach necessary to succeed both in study and practice. I sent her work/problems via email and we discussed them over the phone. I felt that these phone sessions were as efficient as any session that might have occurred face-to-face. Robyn is a clear communicator and a great tutor. I could tell that she enjoys helping students. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
I have been very impressed and extremely satisfied in regards to the assistance that I received from Robyn. Robyn provided me with constructive criticism and valuable feedback which in turn allowed me to better understand the content of the subject. Robyn contains a wealth of knowledge in regards to the subject content and was more than exceptional in going beyond and above to help me understand fundamental concepts that were troubling me by providing me additional resources. With no hesitation, I highly recommend Robyn to any law student that needs assistance and will definitely utilize her where I can in the future.
Robyn is a very good tutor that is very flexible with regards to time, easy to talk to, always willing to help, very sound knowledge of the law and court experience. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a tutor in this field. Her help has turned my studies around. I now submit assignments and exams with confidence, which is something I had lost at the beginning on my uni return.
Robyn was great. She came in fully prepared and was able to effectively work on the problem areas. She also provided feedback. Will definitely reuse her services if needed.
