About Becki

I possess a Computer Science and Theater Double Bachelor's from Pomona College, the Forbes #1 College in America for 2015. Having graduated in December 2017, I am looking to share my expertise with local students!

I'm highly extroverted and eager to share my lifelong enthusiasm for mathematics and logic. Computers are the pathway to innovation, and I believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn programming, especially groups underrepresented in the field of computer science (women and minorities).

I have 6+ years of doubly accelerated mathematics education and have experience as a paid tutor for mathematics. I scored a 34 on the ACT and was a National Merit Finalist with a 217 on the old SAT format. I'm happy to meet you where you are and chat with you about where you want to get to!

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.

ACT Math

I received a total score of a 34 on my ACT with a 32 on the Mathematics portion.

Algebra 1

I was doubly accelerated in mathematics in middle and high school. I took Algebra I in 7th grade with older peers and received an A.

Algebra 2

I was doubly accelerated in mathematics in middle and high school and achieved A's.

Computer Science

I have a Computer Science degree from Pomona College. I have taken programming classes for 4+ years at 3 different schools: Pomona College, Claremont McKenna College, and Harvey Mudd College. Additionally, I have interned as a software developer at Applied Instrument Technologies and conducted computer science research through a National Science Foundation grant. I've specialized in computer science education, advanced computability theory, proof-verification, and user interface design.

Discrete Math

Not only have I taken this course myself, I have tutored this class previously at Pomona College. I'd hold weekly tutoring sessions where we'd discuss and work through material in small groups. I also graded the coursework and got even further familiarity in the process.

Java

I'm a Pomona College Computer Science graduate whose first programming language was Java. I have since taken 3 full semester college courses in the language and conducted research in Java through a NSF grant at Harvey Mudd College.

Logic

I completed a course in college titled 'Computability and Logic' and impressed my professor such that we ended up doing research together over the summer on a NSF grant. I also tutored Discrete Mathematics (which incorporates basic logic) at the collegiate level.

Prealgebra

I was double accelerated in math throughout middle and high school. I took this course in 6th grade with older peers and received an A.

SAT Math

I was a National Merit Finalist scoring a 217 on the old SAT format.

Theater

I am a Theater graduate from Pomona College and have performed in plays and musicals my entire life. I've worked professionally both as a performer and as a theater technician (assistant stage manager, fly rail operator, costumer). I also worked for the Theater Department of Pomona College as a costume shop assistant for 4 years.

Wonderful tutor

Was a great help to our daughter with geometry and trig. She is punctual and very personable. We have only used her twice so far but our daughters grade went up a letter so far.
