Hello,

My name is Rebecca, and I just recently graduated with my BS in marine biology from FIU. I have experience with all ages and a love for teaching. I am currently in a graduate program for teaching secondary education and will be certified within the next 6th months. I have the most experience with middle school age (6th grade to 8th grade), but am comfortable with high school and elementary school ages as well. I worked with breakthrough Miami as a summer teacher intern. This position gave me wonderful experience in how to show students easy and fun ways to understand difficult concepts. My strong suits are in science, math, athletics, and piano.

I am a very intelligent and friendly person. I try my hardest to be on time to any obligation, but of course, this is difficult with the amount of traffic we all know is in the Miami area. Through the program I worked with, I learned that children learn better doing hands on activities. I am very good at coming up with games and other fun things to help assist in the learning process. From all my experience with children and teaching this summer, it would be a wonderful experience to help out other kids and help them to succeed in school.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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

Algebra is one of my strongest subjects. Anything from grade school algebra to college algebra.

Anatomy

I have a vast knowledge of the human body and the organs that comprise it. I have taken a few anatomy classes and did very well in them.

Biology

Biology is one of my strongest subjects. I know everything from cells to taxonomy.

Chemistry

Chemistry is a strong subject for me. I have taken AP chemistry as well as general chemistry 1 and 2. I have done very well in all of the stated classes and am comfortable teaching others.

Ecology

Ecology is a strong subject for me. I have taken many ecology classes and have a lot of knowledge about how ecosystems work.

Elementary (K-6th)

Since the website does not offer elementary level problem solving and math skills, I am offering it to people who want their child to succeed in all aspects, not just English. If your child is struggling with their math skills, I am the person to help.

English

English is not my strongest suit but, I know enough to help through high school English and college writing classes.

Flute

I have been playing flute for 4 years and am very good at understanding everything from how to blow into the flute to forming notes and reading music.

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite math classes. I know how to do everything from simple areas to proofs.

Piano

I have been playing piano for 9 years and have a vast knowledge of how to theory and technique to pass on to students.

Softball

Softball is a hobby of mine that I still enjoy. I have been playing since I was very young. I have played slow and fast pitch softball. I most often played catcher and 2nd base but i understand the duties of the other positions as well. I understand the fundamentals of softball and am able to teach the basics such as rules, throwing, catching and hitting.

Swimming

I am lifeguard, CPR and first aid certified. Swimming is something I enjoy and have knowledge of many different strokes including: freestyle, breast stroke, and back stroke.
