About Rebekah

After teaching elementary school in the Central Valley for more than a dozen years, I am interested in staying in tune with the field of education by tutoring your child! I also did some private tutoring while I lived in the Central Valley.

I can offer small group or one-one-one services for the student in need of academic support. NOT ALL STUDENTS learn in the same manner. I will work with you and you child in order to find a learning method that will work for him or her. Please contact me if you wish for your child receive quality educational support!

If you wish for your Pre-Kindergarten child to receive academic support in getting ready for school, I can also offer tutoring services for the very young! It's amazing what 30 minutes to an hour per week will do for your 3 or 4 year old!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I am a Sunday School teacher and a pastor's wife. On a personal note, I read the bible daily and study the bible on an ongoing basis.

Dyslexia

I taught elementary school for several years. It is not uncommon for someone in a teacher's classroom to struggle with Dyslexia. In the past (several years ago), students who struggled with dyslexia were sometimes considered to be slow learners. However, much has been done in order to help students who struggle with dyslexia and it has been found that theses students usually have high IQ's. Students who have dyslexia benefit from multisensory learning. For example, my tutoring students (even if they do not have dyslexia) may be found writing words in shaving cream or singing words aloud ("IS" is taught to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?). Students with dyslexia also greatly benefit from one-on-one help. I am qualified to help them!

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a CA Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I also hold a Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction.

Elementary Math

I can help your with Math by looking at Patterns in Math, hands-on Math learning, and learning by repetition (i.e. worksheets and oral drills). I have a strong background with teaching Math and am willing to look at your child's individual Math needs and working from there. I will also try to make sure that I am following the Math Curriculum requirements of their current grade level.

Phonics

I hold a CA teaching credential. I also hold a Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum & Instruction.
When I taught 2nd and then K in Lemoore, CA, the Reading Program (Open Court) emphasized phonics throughout the core part of its program.

Piano

I can read music and also can play by ear. I am a church pianist.

Special Needs

I have taught students in the past who had special needs. I have taught students in my (former) classroom who dealt with ADD/ADHD . I have worked with students who had Asperger's Syndrome. I have also worked with children who had Autism. When I moved to a new area of the state of CA and no longer taught full time, I spent some time subbing and also working one-on-one with students who had special needs.
I understand IEP's and 504 Plans.
I offer individualized tutoring sessions.

Study Skills

I hold a CA Multiple Subject teaching credential. I also hold a Master's Degree with an emphasis in Curriculum & Instruction. When I taught in Lemoore, CA, I taught K in the mornings and then I spent each afternoon working with upper grade students who were academically struggling with Math or Reading. Embedding into this afternoon program was STUDY SKILLS.

Rebekah is an amazing tutor! She is patient, understanding and works very well with my son who has a learning disability. Her ideas to get him focused and stay on track are great. I would recommend Rebekah to anyone that needs help with tutoring.
