About

I am a recent high school graduate now in college classes with about a year of tutoring experience. I enjoy all subjects, but math at most levels, chemistry, and history at all levels are my favorite to both learn about and tutor others in. The kids that I have tutored span in age from 2nd grade through 10th grade and in all subjects.

My tutoring technique is being flexible and patient, basing each session on what they think they need help with. I maintain a positive and upbeat attitude and incorporate games and brain breaks into each session! Feedback is extremely important to me, both from the student as well as the parent!

    Rebecca was an excellent tutor. She was respectful and kind. She planned out her lessons and checked in regularly to make sure the level of understanding was there. She adjusted things if there were questions. She was kind and positive throughout the entire experience.

    My son went to many tutors before Rebecca and none of them helped. Their style was different yet similar enough in the way that it was book-based. With Rebecca, I saw something that my son hadnt done with his other tutors before: incorporating games into the learning. It took a little while for him to trust Rebecca, but she was patient and understanding. She told me that shes tutored many kids like this in the past and that its going to be okay. About 1 month in, I could see how much progress was made: he went from a 60% in social studies to a 90%. Rebecca told me that grades dont matter as much as actually comprehending the material, so she made sure that he was comprehending...and he was!
    After so many failed attempts, we are so lucky to have found Rebecca and would recommend her 10 times over.

    Rebecca made the lessons very enjoyable and personalized. She took an inventory of my childs likes and dislikes and put those directly into each lesson! I would definitely recommend Rebecca to anyone!

    Frequently asked questions

    Our first session is a get-to-know-each-other session. During this session, we usually play icebreaker games, talk about likes and dislikes, set goals for academia as well as tutoring, as well as assessment tests, to allow me to get the best understanding of where the student is at! I make these fun. games like Would-You-Rather and games like that to keep the attention present.  

    I have tutored with a volunteer platform called Learn To Be for 6 months to a year at this point. Throughout that time, I have tutored kids spanning from 2nd grade through 9th grade. I tutor them in all subjects, including grade-level math, English, science, social studies/history, and Chemistry., though I prefer to teach K-5 in math, social studies, and reading.

    The first session with me is usually about $30-35/hour due to all of the after-session work and materials bought for your child. After that first session, it goes down to $20-25/hour. 

    One interest if mine has always been helping people in any way that I can. I knew that I always enjoyed helping my classmates if they had struggles, and I wanted to give back to my community and tutor even more, so I googled "online volunteer tutoring" and came across Learn To Be. After looking over their website, I applied to become one of their tutors and began tutoring!

    Some advice I would give a student looking to hire a teacher in my area of expertise is to ask as many questions as you can. Such questions could be, "What makes you qualified to teach [insert subject]?" or "Did you struggle with [insert subject] and now understand it and can actually understand some of the confusion?" or "What makes you different from other tutors?"

    One of the most important things I think that students should think through before talking to teachers about their needs is their comfort level with the teacher. For example, asking themselves if they are comfortable enough telling the teacher that they do not understand the material the way it is being taught. Another question to think about is what exactly does the student need? Do they not understand the material at all? What is it about the material that they do not understand? If they don't know, ask the teacher/tutor to help them figure out what they need specific help with.
