About Rebecca

I love learning. As a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, I know that opportunity and success looks an awful lot like hard work paying off. As the founding tutor for the Biology Lab and tutoring program and serving several semesters in the Nursing Program's student learning lab at Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University), I have had the extreme pleasure of helping thousands of students achieve their scholastic goals, realize their own potential, and take great joy in seeing their grades soar. Aside from being a mom, this is the most rewarding thing I've ever done.

I specialize in tutoring Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, Genetics, Microbiology, Pathophysiology, Radiology, elementary math thru Algebra1, General Chemistry, English, Reading, and history for all grades. No matter the subject under review, my goal for each session is to work with the student on their current lesson assignments as well as preparing for upcoming topics and constantly review for exams. I customize each session to the student's unique needs, gauging and matching the student's learning style. At the student and/or parent's request, I am prepared to assign homework after each lesson as well as provide periodic progress reports.

I am fully qualified to tutor students of all grade levels, having successfully tutored students ages 4 years through 78 years in various subjects, including, but not limited to, elementary math, reading, computer skills, writing/English, science, history, and social studies. I excel at clarifying subjects where a student struggles, and adding challenges to keep students engaged when needed. I am comfortable working within the lessons the student receives within their coursework (homework help) as well as adding outside material to help solidify the concepts currently being studied.

Having utilized tutors myself in the past, I hold myself to an incredibly high standard, treating each tutoring opportunity as if I were the student and asking what I would want out of my tutor. My policy is to never bill for a session for which the student and parent are not completely satisfied. My many years as a student have also given me a crystal clear understanding of the budgetary issues with which may students and their families contend - I am open to discussing a flexible fee structure (to a point) if that is the only roadblock standing in the way of my helping a student to their highest success. I am also a very firm believer in the principle that as humans we place a higher value on that for which we strive the hardest and will allow neither myself nor my services nor my student's efforts to be sold cheap.

I know that students today have little free time and I treat the student's time as my own - precious. While I try to be as flexible as possible, I do have a strict 24-hour cancellation policy. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. I am ultimately and fully committed to my students' success.

To ensure that students have a place to study that is conducive to learning, I work primarily out of the Pikes Peak Library District's study rooms, and therefore primarily during library hours. I am happy to travel to the Pikes Peak Library District Branch that works best for my students, though traveling more than my specified radius or after hours does incur an additional fee and can be worked out on a case-by-case basis. The East, Penrose, and Library 21c branches have rooms for reservation and are the most accessible in the city, though the others can work if scheduling far enough in advance.

Online lessons are a great way for students to learn when distances seem insurmountable. I am very well versed in Wyzant's online interface and am incredibly willing to meet with my students online. Since the start of 2016, I have been one of the top 3 tutors in Colorado Springs, with regular online sessions from Maine to California, Texas to Wisconsin.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals as you complete your education and am honored that you would consider allowing me to assist you in such an important investment in your future.

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.

Anthropology

I completed 24 hours anthropology study in undergrad. I was in the top 10 in each of my 6 classes. Topics mastered were evolutionary/archaeological anthropology, civilization/societal development, comparative religion as an anthropological tool, and America as a foreign culture.

Botany

I have over 20 credit hours in undergraduate and graduate level course work in botany, plant anatomy, cellular biology, and genetics. I also completed a 200 hour independent study internship in wine making and viticulture. I established and operated the Biology open study lab at Mesa State College, tutoring all levels of college students.

Genetics

I have extensive experience with genetics: 18 credit hours during my B.S. studies (finishing in the ton 10% of all classes and labs), as well as 100+ hours tutoring undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate level students in genetics and cellular biology - all of whom finished in the top 25% of their classes. I am the perfect genetics tutor for those needing to understand the concepts and intricacies of genetics and how the genome interacts with the world.

Nursing

I have 200+ hours experience tutoring nursing and pre-nursing students both in person and online. I have enough understanding of nursing school procedures and requirements that while I as in my B.S. in Biology undergrad studies at Mesa State College, I was asked to work in the nursing lab to help nursing students with their courses. I was also the founding tutor for the Biology Studies tutoring lab, where I was the chief pre-nursing tutor, preparing struglling pre-nursing students for the rigors of one of the top nursing programs in the state. I have the unique ability to prepare students to become student nurses as well as work with nursing students to understand the often challenging and complex material to become effective health-care professionals by engaging the critical thinking skills that the profession requires but is often not required until entry into nursing programs nation wide.

Public Speaking

I have given more than 100 speeches in various settings for audiences large and small, completed Toastmasters training, and taken Voice and Diction as well as Speechmaking classes in college, both with the top marks in the class. I have more than 10 years experience in visual presentation making and Powerpoint.

Fantastic tutor! — My daughter was struggling in her Human Genetics course and was failing the quarter. We could not find any local tutors but luckily connected with Rebecca who suggested using the online WyzAnt interface. Rebecca was very flexible about scheduling and great about fitting us into her schedule. She was always prompt, professional and went the extra mile reviewing PDF files we sent her from the class ...
