Hello! My name is Becca, and I am going to school for elementary education, focusing in science.
I work my price for tutoring on a sliding scale.
We are in a pandemic, I understand people have lost jobs, and lack of financial access shouldn't be a barrier for people to obtain basic education.
My formal experience with academic tutoring was working with Wisconsin Reading Corps as a Literacy Tutor in 2018. I had 15 students I met one-on-one for 20 minutes, every day. The goal was to get students to read increased words per minute(ideally 120 wpm). I tutored 1st-3rd grade.
My history with teaching includes: being a dance instructor at MSCR (Madison) for ballet, contemporary, hip hop, and jazz. The age groups were from first grade to 8th grade, depending on the class.
I have completed 46 hours of childcare training with Wisconsin Teaching Procedures, and multiple Mandated Reporting trainings as well.
This semester, my courses include: developmental psychology, education and culture, biology, and Conservation Environmental Science.

I live for the "lightbulb" moment with students. The shine of realization in their eyes when they recognize a concept, or tackle a difficult word/passage, or when they come up with their own connections to the material. It's those moments that make teaching so rewarding, and it's one of the main reasons I enjoy my work.
Becca has help my child improve so much this school year! She has so much patience’s and show much passion in teaching. Can’t thank her enough and very affordable!
When I work with a new student, I will always try to create a rewarding experience with positive reinforcement and enthusiasm.
Depending on the age, I ask if the student has any specific goals/ideas that they want to achieve.
Currently enrolled with UW Milwaukee Education program, previous experience with childcare and tutoring both in Madison and Milwaukee (see profile)

When a student and I were reading about a football game, and that student suggested to me that they read in an "announcer" voice.
It was a brilliant idea, so we incorporated it- loudly sounding out every word like an announcer.
Students have the best ideas.
Because my area of expertise is teaching reading and science, my best advice would be to find an instructor who helps you learn with your mistakes.
