Mrs. Becca S. is a native Texan, who has home-schooled her children for 14 years. Before home-schooling, she was a Journalist and Public Relations (PR) Director in college sports.

Mrs. Becca graduated with a Journalism/PR degree from The University of Texas (UT). She spent six years publicizing teams at UT, Long Beach State, and UCLA. She was one of the youngest female Sports Information Directors at a major NCAA Division I University. Her duties included arranging interviews with the media, placing articles in the newspaper and news segments on TV, writing weekly press releases, designing, writing, and editing media guides, and writing articles for local and national newspapers and magazines.

One of the highlights of Mrs. Becca's career was working with NBC’s “Today Show,” when they did a story on softball great Lisa Fernandez, one of the future Olympians that she publicized during their college years. Another career highlight was orchestrating the national PR campaign that helped propel Long Beach State volleyball player Antoinette White to National Player of the Year honors.

After moving back to Texas, she started her own desktop publishing firm and worked with a variety of clients in the Austin area. Four years later, Mrs. Becca and her husband moved to Montgomery and started home-schooling their children, because they wanted their kids to have God at the center of their education. In addition to teaching her own children, Mrs. Becca has taught math, grammar, history, geography, and Bible in area co-ops, tutored math and grammar to many students, and taught music and motor classes at preschools and churches.

In 2009, Mrs. Becca was named Director of SATCH Homeschool Volleyball. She handles all of the administrative and publicity duties for the Lady Mavericks, who won their first-ever National Championship last year. In addition to sports and Journalism, Mrs. Becca enjoys music, singing, and studying British culture.

Mrs. Becca’s passion is to encourage youth to love themselves the way God loves them, and to expect the best out of themselves each and every day.

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 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

I have tutored all levels of math for decades, including tutoring Business Calculus at The University of Texas.

When I was growing up, I was the student who could never get enough math homework. I love to instill that love of learning math in my students. I certainly want to help take away any math anxieties that a student may have!

I have home-schooled my children since 1999, have taught in many home-school co-ops, and have tutored many students in math over the years.

I have a focused but light-hearted method for learning math, including different ways of taking notes and memorizing math facts and formulas. I have eight different ways to explain each concept, taking great care to find what speaks to each child and making sure the student has mastered each concept before moving on.

Desktop Publishing

With a degree in Journalism/Public Relations, I worked in the Sports Information departments of three NCAA Division I universities - the University of Texas, Long Beach State, and UCLA.

I designed, wrote, and edited media guides, game programs, and weekly press releases.

As the owner of my own company, I designed, wrote, and edited resumes and newsletters for a variety of clients, industries, and non-profit organizations.

I now direct a non-profit volleyball organization, handling all of its publicity materials via desktop publishing.

I am proficient in MS Word, MS PowerPoint, and Adobe InDesign.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have successfully taught every grade of primary education over the past 18 years.

My focus in the elementary grades is hands-on learning.

For instance...

If it is memorizing multiplication tables, I use manipulatives and shortcuts to aid memory and focus.

If it is learning to read, I use phonics flashcards, games, and lots of repetitive reading at a grade level higher than the student's to foster an interest and love of reading.

If it is social studies, I use visual aids and globes, etc., to help foster a successful environment of learning enjoyment and long-term memory.

I have authored my own curriculum in a variety of subjects, taught elementary music classes, taught Music and Motor classes, taught Geography classes, and taught multiple years of History.

I am currently a teacher at a local school. This Fall I will be teaching jr high Grammar and high school Journalism.

Spelling

I love spelling! I have a proven method to encourage young and old students to spell correctly! I have taught many students in spelling who had made significant improvements in their spelling grades and their day-to-day spelling.

Volleyball

I have directed a nationally-recognized volleyball program for the past 5 years. Our 65-member program has won local and national tournaments.

I also have worked in college volleyball for 6 years. I offer group volleyball training and private lessons for first graders through high school seniors. I would love the opportunity to work with young or old players to develop their game!
