About Rebecca

Hello, my name is Becky. I have worked as a private tutor for six years mostly in the following subjects: science (college and high school chemistry and biology), math (general math k-6th grade, prealgebra, geometry, algebra I and algebra II) and TEAS prep (all sections). I am very positive, patient and believe in teaching by example. My goal is to make sure my students really understand the material at hand and can use the skills he or she has acquired to perform well. I am able to do that by employing the following strategy : I generally cover the topic, then explain it in detail, make the student do some problems or write depending on the subject, and finally I make them explain and teach the topic back to me. This makes difficult subjects seem simple and easy to understand, which is my secondary goal. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. Hello, my name is Becky.

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.

Homeschool

I have taught ten different homeschooled children either from scratch or following the syllabus that was provided by the school. I taught in all K-10th-grade subjects as well as high school chemistry. I have a statement of eligibility from the state of Florida. Finally, my students were able to understand the material and were eager to learn the material.

Prealgebra

I have tutored many students (both traditional and home-schooled). I have made my own syllabus from scratch and administered exams. I have done this for math and history. I have helped students raised their exam scores and made they feel better about his or herself.

Study Skills

I have helped tutor children and adults for several years now, particularly middle and high school students. I have worked with over 25 students in various private lessons. I have also worked with home-schooled children. I am currently pursing my MS in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. I have also worked for a language school prior to working for WzyAnt. I have taught students several useful methods for studying depending on the subjects. This includes how to organize and write your notes, how to make flashcards, mnemonics, illustrations for physics, highlighting correctly, and chemistry and general class preparation skills.

TEAS

I have tutored students in all the portions of the TEAS examine. I have worked with 5 different students who took the exam and entered into the nursing program. The test is composed of basic English, Chemistry, Biology, and Math. I have tutored in these subjects for a while and have done so successfully.

Knowledgeable tutor with many techniques — Rebecca was such an amazing tutor! I had her help me study for the TEAS test, and she could not have done a better job. She was always available when I needed her most. One thing I really liked was that she would make homework questions for me to do after our lessons, which were really helpful. I am very thankful for all the help she gave me. She is very smart and can help with many topics. ...
