About this tutor

Hello!  My name is Rachel, and I'm a recent college grad from UC Berkeley, and I'm currently a part-time student at UCSD.  I have education experience through teaching weekly health education classes to ninth graders, and I also tutored third graders weekly in their classroom.  Through these experiences, I learned to use a trauma-informed approach and growth mindset with students. I've taken college level classes in many different departments including English, Biology, Chemistry, Public Health, and Political Science.  I understand this time without formal schooling is difficult, and I would enjoy coming up with a curriculum plan that works for you!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to get an in-depth knowledge of what the subject the student needs help with.  Things like a syllabus, teacher notes, homework examples would be helpful for me to see so I can get all the information I can to support you!  I also want to learn more about a student's learning style, like if they learn best from visual aids, or talking through problems, or listening to others talk through problems.  Basically, I want to learn more about what students are learning and how they prefer to learn it!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I taught classes to ninth graders for 3 years, and also tutored third graders for 2 years.  On a more informal note, I have younger siblings and have tutored them in multiple subjects for most of my life.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I don't have a standard system, and prefer determining pricing based on individual needs.


How did you get started teaching?

I taught health education classes to ninth graders as a sophomore in college.  This was one of the best things I've done, and it made me realize how much I loved being an educator and how much I enjoyed supporting students.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with a variety of students ranging from 3rd-9th grade.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

For my most recent birthday, my family and I had a great dinner together at one of our favorite restaurants.  It was a lot of fun to spend time with them!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I have many areas I feel comfortable tutoring students in, but my advice for all areas is the same: find someone you feel comfortable with!  Other than the subject matter you need help with, the most important thing for tutoring is your relationship with your tutor.  Something else I consider highly important is honesty with your tutor.  It's better to admit when you don't understand a concept than to pretend and move on.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I think it's helpful for students to recognize where they need help, this can be specific or general.  For example, a student may have trouble with a specific step in DNA combination, or a broader question of an essay topic.  Most of all, it's important for students to remember it's ok to feel challenged!
