Hi there. My name is Rachel and I'm graduate of the University of Iowa and The Second City Training Center. I work downtown with Columbia College and DePaul University students at a nonprofit. Most recently, I served as a Teaching Fellow in Israel where I taught English lessons to Israeli teenagers in small group settings. I have experience teaching many different subjects, including: English as a Second Language, Art, English, ACT/SAT/GRE Prep, and even swimming lessons! Fun fact: I am a licensed Zumba and Water Aerobics instructor!
I am starting my Master's Degree in Jewish Professional Studies this fall, but in the meantime I am ready to help you or your child learn. My interests include: traveling, drawing, reading, teaching Zumba, and working with Birthright groups and at summer camp.
My approach to teaching and tutoring is to listen, listen, listen. I find that listening to my students helps find exactly what they need from me, instead of jumping into material and possibly confusing the student or moving too quickly. I am very organized and greatly enjoy teaching and implementing good study skills, such as list and goal making, color-coding, and prioritizing.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about my methods, experience, or reference inquiries.
I look forward to hearing from you!
