About Rebecca

Hi Everyone,

My name is Rebecca and I may be just the tutor for you!

I have recently graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology as well as a degree in Physiology. For the last seven years I have worked for a charter school as a math and science tutor for grades 6-12. In math I can tutor in elementary, geometry, pre algebra, algebra I, algebra II and ACT and in science I can tutor in elementary, biology, chemistry, physiology, anatomy and ACT.

My strengths as a tutor are that I am very patient and I am able to come up with many different ways of explaining things until they make sense to you. There is no better feeling then helping someone achieve their academic goals.

I hope to hear from you soon!

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.


I have taken first and second semester college chemistry and since being with WyzAnt have tutored several college and high school students in chemistry.


I have tutored multiple students in GED math as well as working for 8 years as a math tutor in a high school.


I have two science degrees, molecular and cellular biology as well as physiology, both of which use a lot of genetics. I have taught genetics to students both in the classroom and tutoring. I have also taken the genetics class offered from the U of A.


I have tutored students in this subject for the last seven years in a classroom setting. I feel comfortable tutoring this subject.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in study skills because I was a tutor in a school for seven years where one of my main jobs was to keep the students organized and on task. I was then a full time middle school teacher for a semester and I had to make sure that every student was able to not only understand the material but was focused and completing assignments. These two experiences taught me many techniques and tricks to help many different kinds of students study.
