About Rachel

Hello there!

My name is Rachel!

I tutor grades K-12 in Math, English, Writing, Reading, Test Prep, and Music.

I graduated high school in the top of my class with honors and received a full ride academic Regent's Scholarship.

I have been tutoring for several years and I absolutely love it. I approach each session with patience, understanding, and positive encouragement no matter what age you are. My sessions are not only educational, but also fun which I feel instills the joy and excitement of learning--a key component to retaining knowledge. Positive reinforcement is extremely important, and I will go at any pace necessary for my students to understand the material fully. I keep my sessions upbeat and optimistic!

I know how to work with children in that I know how to keep their attention. When working with ages K-6, I sometimes use stickers as a reward if the child gets a problem right or has a break-through understanding. I also work very well with high school-aged students in that I explain difficult material in simplistic terms so it becomes easy to grasp. I personally invest in my students and care that they comprehend everything before the session is over, leaving no questions unanswered.

Some words that describe me as a person and tutor are trustworthy, pleasant, welcoming, organized, diligent, communicative, efficient, enthusiastic, and caring.

I am a flexible with my hours, and can work around your schedule.

Whether you need material explained, help studying for a test, or someone to get you through your homework, I promise to help you and make sure you are completely comfortable with your material.

Have a beautiful 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 always loved and excelled at Algebra. Because I was advanced in math since elementary school, I have taken algebra courses since the 5th grade. Algebra is one of my fortes and I have the ability to explain it simply so it makes sense. I have used algebra throughout my entire academic career and tested out of my math requirements in college.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated in the top of my class with honors in high-school and received a full-ride academic scholarship to college. I am patient with kids, and know how to explain subjects in simple terms so they understand. I have tutored in math, english, science, and reading for grades K-6th.

Elementary Math

I have excelled in Math since a very young age and was always in the Advanced Math course since 1st grade and ended up taking college level math courses in my first years of high school. I am very skilled in explaining math concepts in simplistic terms, making it easy for elementary aged children to grasp. I have tutored Elementary Math for several years already, and enjoy instilling the love for math in children as well.


I am a full-ride academic Regents Scholar and received a perfect grade point average for English in both high school and college. I scored exceptionally well on the SAT in English and Writing and have a firm grasp on all aspects of the language.

General Music

I went to the University of Nebraska at Omaha and majored in Music Education. I have completed all levels of music theory, am a trained singer, and have taken piano for over 10 years. I am also a vocal coach.

SAT Math

I did extremely well on the Math portion of the SAT, as well as tested out of my college math course requirements. I know exactly what kind of questions to expect on the exam and how to best study for it. Efficiency and accuracy are key due to the time limit you have to complete the section.

Study Skills

I have great organizational and study skills. I took AP college courses in high school and was able to balance my time to make sure I completed all my requirements for each class in an efficient way. I am able to wisely advise others on how best to spend their time, and in what way is best to study for each subject. Time management is key to excelling and retaining knowledge. I am also able to explain material in simplistic terms so that it is easily understood.
