My name is Rachel, and I am a Paraprofessional working at a small private school. I recently became a certified teacher and love working with students.

I am only available after school hours, but besides that I have a pretty flexible schedule. I was a Secondary Education major with a minor in History at Rider University in New Jersey. Due to working at a school, I've been required to have a background check, so I have one available.

I've worked with students on a myriad of subjects like Social Studies, Science, English, Math, and Spanish. I can help with tutoring, study skills, homework, test prep, and project ideas. I look forward to hearing from you and working collaboratively to student success!

Social Studies

I have received my NJ state teaching certificate in Social Studies for secondary education. I enjoy all aspects of learning and teaching history and the social sciences. I've completed numerous history courses at Rider University from The History of Vietnam to African American History in America. My tutoring methods include real life experiences and connecting the student to the subject matter. Various learning styles help keep the learner informed as well as on task and entertained. History and the social sciences are vital to a student's evolution of knowledge because it allows social interaction, problem solving, thinking out of the box, and practice on various other subjects (reading, writing, etc.)
