About Rebecca

I believe learning should engage and excite. I know that my own love of literature and words has fueled my personal academic success. My students often tell me that my passion for the material is contagious; it helps them learn better.

I am well-prepared for tutoring. My background is academic-focused; I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Occidental College in 2012 and plan to become an educator. Most recently, my job with the Institute of Reading Development gave me the skills and experience to teach students of all ages, from Kindergarten to High School. In our training, I learned how to clearly and effectively communicate information using framing techniques, priming devices, and outlines. I also learned how to teach study skills and test taking, information I can use to help my students find success in the classroom.

During college, I worked for a year and a half with Neighborhood Partnership Programs, an L.A.-based project that put in-class tutors into failing schools. I helped students as they worked on in-class assignments, conferred with them when they needed help understanding what the teacher was explaining, and gave advice on how to prepare for college. My senior year in college, I was involved in a program called "Community Literacy," in which I worked one-on-one with a sixth-grade student for a semester. I had the opportunity to create lesson plans and activities that would meet her individual needs and interests, all centering around building strong reading and writing skills. I currently volunteer as a tutor with the International Rescue Committee, which has a refugee rehabilitation office in Phoenix. I work weekly with a family of three young children on reading, math, and English-speaking skills.
