If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I continued into the library field after my undergraduate degree in mathematics, but I love working one-on-one with others explaining math concepts and helping with test prep, step-by-step.

I'll try to help you understand why your textbook or teacher is telling you to take certain steps to work through a problem. I'll help you remember the steps to take, and prompt you in sample problems.

I do my best to give creative examples explaining math problems, relating them to the concrete world.

I love working with students toward their standardized tests as well - I've worked with the GRE and the ACT most recently. In the past year I've had the chance to tutor with four high school students and two college students (Algebra, Geometry, History, and English, as well as the ACT). I've worked with younger grades as well (mostly in general math).

I've taken every chance I could get to help with math in the schools where I worked. I helped my mom study for her statistics class and for the Graduate Record Exam.

I look forward to the chance to help you!

Fantastic tutor — Rebekah was able to successfully help my child increase their ACT score dramatically in Science, Reading and English. She identified my child's weaknesses and honed in on what would be most beneficial to see immediate results. I believe Rebekah's best attribute is her ability to break things down into smaller parts which lends itself to a fuller understanding in tougher areas. My child liked how ...
