All of Rachel’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Rachel’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

I have taught a high school summer Algebra 1 course. I have also tutored students of all ages (middle school, high school and college) needing help in Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

As a private tutor, I have worked with many students to improve their Algebra 2 skills. I also taught two sections of an Algebra 2 class for a summer high school program. Each section had over 20 students.

Calculus

I've tutored students in Calculus III and have been very successful. It's not an easy subject for a lot of people and my goal when working with a student is to make the topics as simple as possible.

Chess

I have been playing chess competitively since the age of six. I am a member of the US Chess Federation, rated 1773. I've taught chess for over 10 years, primarily to young children. Most recently, I taught a 1st grade class at the Melrose School in Brewster, NY. I have also worked with adults, usually in one-on-one sessions.

Discrete Math

I received an A in my undergraduate discrete math course. I also took a graduate level discrete mathematical modeling course. I have tutored students in set theory, logic and basic number theory.

Linear Algebra

I received an A in Introduction to Linear Algebra at Western CT State University. In my graduate courses, we have often used more advanced linear algebra. I have also tutored students in linear algebra.

Logic

I did very well in the logic portion of my discrete mathematics course. Logic is a topic that comes very easily to me and I am very good at explaining it to people.

Statistics

My specialty is statistics - it's what I'm studying in graduate school. I enjoy the subject and I am good at teaching it. I've worked with many students on elementary statistics and they have done well!

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
