About Rebecca

I have high standards for myself and my students. As a cum laude graduate from one of Southern California's premier educational institutions, and a current student in Speech Language Pathology, I have developed excellent study habits, and, most importantly, I know how to effectively teach students those habits. As a parent myself, I have witnessed the impact of one good teacher in any young person's life. It is incredibly rewarding to see that a concept has "clicked" with a student, and I love to see it happen. This job does not feel like work!

I specialize in Reading, Writing, and Music. I worked with first grade students every week at Peach Hill Academy in Moorpark, helping them with Language Arts, Core Knowledge, and basic math. I have been privately tutoring elementary school students for the last four years, focusing on reading and writing; I am also studying to become a pediatric Speech Language Pathologists, so my training helps me get better results with the children. I work at a Children's Developmental Therapy company, and I have learned how to use different parts of children's brains to facilitate learning.

I am a classically trained vocalist, and I have over fifteen years of experience writing, performing, producing music. I have also been playing guitar for over 15 years, and I still perform regularly.

I will do my best to meet student and/or parent needs, and consistently discuss our shared goals, and the progress we have made.

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, however, I am flexible regarding make up classes. I am willing to travel up to 25 miles from my home.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

English

I am currently studying to become a Speech Language Pathologist, so I have a unique, specialized approach regarding the English Language. I also learned Armenian, and I have a degree in History (which requires a good command of the English Language).

Guitar

I have been a professional rhythm guitar player for 5 years. I have been playing for 15 years. I read music, chord charts, and guitar tabs. I teach my students self confidence and stage presence, even behind the guitar.

Special Needs

I am currently enrolled in master's program in Speech Language Pathology. I worked for a year at a private occupational therapy company, called Kids Connections, and I worked with clients with autism, seizure disorders, and intellectual disability. I modify my curriculum for special needs students, sometimes slowing down the pace, or incorporating activities based on what the student is telling me with his or her body language at the moment.

Study Skills

I have worked with students for five years, helping them organize their thoughts, and put together logical essays and papers. I have helped them prepare for exams, and focus on projects. I worked for a year with a fourteen year old Special Needs student, and helped her find strategies for solving math problems.

I have a Bachelor's in History from UCLA, and I also have the equivalent of a second Bachelor's in Speech Language Pathology. I took advantage of the resources available at CSUN, and created study guides for my classmates.

Voice (Music)

I have been teaching voice for two years. I have a whole-body approach, because I truly believe that when we are singing, our whole body is the instrument. I teach students to be comfortable and relaxed in their own skin, and to isolate the muscles needed to produce excellent intonation and build confidence. I teach rhythm, poise, and performance skills.

Writing

I have a BA in History from UCLA, and I have written many research papers. I am also studying Speech Language Pathology, and I write papers all the time.
