“**Great tutor, really helped my son**”

Welcome!

I am a proud homegrown product of the Arizona education system; University High School (Class of 99') and the University of Arizona 04'!

I've had the great pleasure of studying the sciences as both a college student and graduate student. Along the way I took advantage of many opportunities to further my working

Rachel is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Rachel to get started.

After only 2 sessions, we saw a big improvement in my son's math grade. She made geometry look easy. My teenager enjoys working with her and he feels a lot more confident in his abilities. This was so worth the investment.

My son is shy and doesn't like to ask for help. Rachel was able to communicate with him, and instruct him on the points he hadn't quite grasped in class. Pre-Calculus is extremely unforgiving when you don't get the concepts from two weeks ago, as it continually builds on each lesson. I am thankful that she was able to help bring him up to speed in such a short time and will contact Rachel for more help for my son.

Thanks for the math and SAT overall tutoring! My daughter is more confident in her ability to solve math problems and post a good score on her SAT!

Rachel answered my initial inquiry promptly. She was able to set a meeting with me within a day, which I appreciated in light of my project deadlines. This was a one hour meeting for consultation, not tutoring. I found Rachel to be knowledgeable about the types and level of statistical analyses involved in a quantitative study. She offered practical suggestions. This was a productive consultation.

I used Rachel for tutoring in math for the ACT. I learned a lot not only for the ACT but also applied this knowledge to my current math class. She taught me knew math concepts in a way that made sense and I was actually able to remember! Will definitely use Rachel in the future if I need future tutoring.

Personally, I think Rachel is a really good tutor because she helps me understand things that I didn't understand when I walked in the door. She has been a great help to me with Math and even just being there to talk to if I need her. She is more than just a tutor she is a friend. She works very well with teens because she understands them. Again, honestly she has helped me so much with Geometry that I understand things that I haven't understood in a while. She has helped me with my confidence level in Math, and now I am able to take a chance and try to figure things out for myself. All in all she has been an amazing help and I love going to Math Institute to learn even more.

Rachel has a way of reaching young people and getting them to understand math. My daughter's grades have been improving since having Rachel as a tutor. Rachel is an excellent role model and teacher.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have a B.S. in Math and Statistics (2001). While the statistics degree required joint courses to be completed at LSU-Health Science Center in Biometry. I completed the coursework in Biometry (theoretical statistics) at LSU-HSC (2001). I received my MPH with a minor in biostatistics from the University of Arizona (2004).

My research is heavily based in analytical Epidemiology. Aside from my quantitative background, my research work in the sciences combined with my skills in biostatistics have enabled me to engage students in interesting conceptual questions that relate current events to mathematics!

To tutor biostatistics well you have to understand not only the application side (using the software and calculating the numbers) but as well, the theory side to help students truly comprehend their objective in the process of analysis.

Personally I was homeschooled for grades 1-3 and was a member of a homeschool group within the city of New Orleans. More recently I have tutored from the homeschoolers math textbooks "Saxon Math" for grades 5 through grades 11 ( "Saxon Math Algebra 2" ). I have also tutored homeschool students in algebra using Saxon Math.

I have graduate level course work in STATA and I am a self-taught programmer in STATA. I make the distinction because most programmers that use SAS and STATA often use the Windows based version for introductory level statistics courses. However, at the University of Arizona, STATA is a preferred statistical software package and I have learned to program in STATA to gain more access to the powerful tools that STATA has to offer a programmer.

My experience with STATA extends to the following courses: Intro Statistics, Test of Means, ANOVA, ANCOVA, Test of Propositions, Regression Analysis (linear, multi-linear, logistic). I've been working with introductory statistics for 10 years.

I received my BS in Statistics in 2001 and an MPH with a biostatistics concentration in 2004.

I've worked as a tutor and mentor to students of all ages (HS--College) for 12+ years. Good study skills are a necessary part of setting a goal, working through the steps towards reaching a goal, and ultimately accomplishing a goal.

As a mentor it was extremely important for me to work closely with students within a finite amount of time to ensure their assigned projects were worked on daily (setting manageable daily tasks). In my working experience with students it was important for the student to meet a standard of comprehension that ensured their learning goals were being met, and they were capable of passing internal examinations (short term goals) which showed their progress and gains in accomplishing their long term goals.

Studying effectively is a technique that is unique to each student. There are some generalized methods that all students should adhere to such as:

- Good note taking skills

This includes good headers

Creating sections for each topic

Good penmanship is a must

Reviewing notes

- Good Posture when studying

Proper seating does wonders for blood flow

Have a good work area for study materials

- Good organization

Highlighters, post-it flags

Taking pride in your work is a must!

Ultimately all of these items can be modified by the student. What's important is that the person working with your child takes the time to learn your childâ€™s individual learning style and works with them to build good, strong, positive, study skills.
