About Rachel

I have 18 years experience in high school education as both a science teacher and an administrator. I pride myself in being able to guide students through the learning process. You will have a better understanding of the subject at hand after spending one-on-one time with me.

I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I majored in biology. Additionally, I have earned both my master's and doctorate degrees in education. I have spent many, many hours working with high school students one-on-one and in small groups.

I'm a good listener and I will be able to identify your misconceptions and help you think through the problems.
Specifically for science, I believe that if students can identify their misconceptions, they will see that science makes sense and doesn't have to be complicated or difficult.

I can help you with your homework and help you prepare for tests.

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.

Fitness

I am a fit person. Being fit is a way of life for me (and my husband). I understand the biology behind getting and staying fit. I work out regularly. I have run 4 marathons including the Boston Marathon. I participate regularly in competitive athletic events.

Genetics

I completed several genetics courses at the University of Michigan. More importantly though, I taught genetics to high school students throughout my career as a science teacher.

Writing

I have gone through the experience of writing a doctoral dissertation. Enough said, I would think. I've written many, many papers including both creative writing and more formal writing for scientific papers. I enjoy writing and I am a very good proof-reader.

Amazing tutor!

I love working with Rachel! She was able to help me with my AP Biology class and focus on what I needed by teaching me in a way that was easiest for me to understand. We were able to cover a lot of good information in the time I had with her. Also all the information I attained stuck with me! Today I had a surprise essay in class and what we had studied and discussed I had clearly remembered! Over
