About Rachel

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering with a minor in mathematics. I also have a Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering with a focus on Engineering Education. My thesis was an Investigation of the Background Factors that Affect Success in Aerospace Engineering Students. I served as a teaching assistant for two years for the Introduction to Aerospace Engineering and Astronautics, Propulsion, and Structures classes. I also have four years of generic instruction experience as a swimming lessons instructor and swim team coach.

I love one on one tutoring because I get to help students truly understand concepts. Math is my favorite subject to tutor because I personally remember struggling with math when I was in fourth grade. I remember crying and crying because I couldn't understand division. Then, my mom worked with me and helped me really understand it. Much to my surprise, math became my favorite subject, and I graduated from the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science in 2009. I don't want anyone to think they can't follow their dreams. I went from struggling with basic math to an advanced degree in rocket science, and you can too! ;)

I have B.S. Minor in Mathematics and an ACT Math subscore of 31.

College/Advanced courses:
Logic, Game Theory, and Mathematical Theory
General Statistics, Engineering Statistics, and Educational and Psychological Statistics (I & II), Calculus (1, 2, 3, & 4), Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, and many others! :)

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.

Logic

I have taken several logic classes during high school and college. As a senior at the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, I took "Logic and Game Theory" and received an A. Additionally, I took Intro to Logic at University and received an A in the course. Further, I studied the theory behind logical statements during "Foundations of Mathematics" at University. I also tutored a college student in the University Intro to Logic class and as a result, she made a B on the final exam, allowing her to pass the course.
