About Rebecca

I am a full-time PhD student at UCF where I teach as an adjunct. Prior to entering my PhD program, I graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a master's degree in public affairs (3.92 GPA). I completed my bachelor's degree in history (with minors in Philosophy and German) from Florida State University (3.5 GPA). I have ample experience in writing, proofreading, research, and analytical tasks as well as experience with children. For the last 4 years I worked as a social worker for the state of MA serving underprivileged populations. This experience provided me with the ability to understand and effectively address the needs of individuals while maintaining realistic and attainable goals.

I will begin by addressing the student's concerns, setting maintainable goals, and implementing easy to follow guidelines with which to meet these goals. I will furthermore work with the student to address any issues that the student feels are contributing to their difficulties, whether they be fundamental problems such as a shaky foundation, or problems concentrating due to a lack of interest. Everyone has a unique learning style and I firmly believe that the key to education is discovering your student's most effective learning style. I have a passion for knowledge and I excel in fostering an environment conducive to learning by helping others see their own potential. I am an excellent writer and a history buff and will bring these passions to your student thus enabling them to stand out in class, on standardized tests, and on college applications. I look forward to working with you!

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.

Religion

I have a BA in History from Florida State University and during my undergraduate work I took 12 credits of religion study. Furthermore, my focus in graduate school was in International Relations where the topic of religion was a mainstay. Finally, I keep abreast of modern religion as a personal interest.

Social Studies

I have a BA in History from Florida State University with minors in Philosophy and German. Additionally, I recently completed a Master of Science degree in Public Affairs with a focus in International Relations. Finally, I am an avid reader and spend much of my leisure time exploring topics that interest me including history, politics, international relations, and current events.
