Hello! Thank you for looking at my profile.

My name is Rachel and I have been working in the education field for the past nine years. I have a bachelor's degree in both History and Spanish, as well as a Master's degree in History. I currently am an adjunct professor teaching online history courses, but I have also worked as a Spanish tutor, a writing instructor, and a general tutor over the past twelve years. I am comfortable working with most any age group, and have a wide variety of interests, from math to history to English and science.

I love working one-on-one with students - in fact, tutoring is what first propelled me into teaching as my career. I believe that every student has the potential to excel if they only have the necessary tools to help them study, understand material, and test.

Thank you for your time and attention. I hope I can help you reach your goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have always loved math, though it was not always easy for me. When I was younger, I had to learn techniques for understanding the parts of math classes that were difficult. Because of this, I understand how to work with those students who struggle with math classes as well. I took Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Precalculus & Trigonometry, and Calculus I and II between high school and college.

American History

I have a bachelor's degree in history, with an emphasis on both American and European history. I also have a master's degree in history and have taught both US History I: to 1877 and US History II from 1877 to the present at the college level. History is my passion, and I would love to help you or your child learn to love it as well.

Bible Studies

I completed two years of Bible & Religion classes while an undergraduate student. I also have been studying the Bible and the history of Christianity for the past twenty years. I am active in Bible studies through my church as well.

European History

I am a specialist in European history, having obtained my master's and completed doctoral coursework in modern European History. I also teach Western Civilizations and Modern Europe in my day job as a college professor. I love teaching and reading about European history and would love to help you if you are searching for some extra assistance in understanding this fascinating group of cultures and nations.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have been using PowerPoint both as a student and also as a professor for the past fifteen years. I have extensive experience making presentations with images, recorded narrations, and animations. I can help you create the presentations that you need to demonstrate your important projects.

Piano

I have played piano for the past 26 years. I took formal lessons for 10 years and taught piano to a range of students (ages 5 years to 75 years) for 4 years. I have played as an accompanist for choirs, musicals/plays, and singing groups through high school, college, and in churches. I currently play piano and synthesizer on the worship team at my church and often fill in for the pianist at my choir rehearsals.

Study Skills

I have been helping students with study skills, note taking, and research techniques for the past ten years. In college, I received training in identifying learning styles and believe that this can be one key to unlocking the study techniques that will work best for the individual student. As part of my work as a history instructor, I often try to teach my students how to take notes on textbook readings, how to identify the key components of the lecture, and how to prepare for midterms, finals, and other tests.

World History

I am a history instructor as my other job, and have taught world history for the past six years. If you need help keeping Ghengis Khan straight from Atilla the Hun, or if you get Zheng He confused with Moctezuoma, I'm the tutor for you!

Writing

I have worked as a writing instructor in the past, typically with college students who need extra help learning how to research, format, and proofread college term papers.
