About Rebecca

I love math. Math is the language of life, describing everything in the world around us from physics to French fries. Sadly, many math students find the subject a puzzling headache, fraught with unknowns and mysterious processes. Through years of tutoring, one of my greatest joys has been to help students uncover the problems and make sense of the world of mathematics!

For the last four years, I have taught math in a private American school in Jerusalem, covering subjects from elementary math to Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus. I've tutored while teaching, and even for a few years before, helping students move from frustration to satisfaction and even enjoyment of this complex subject. I've worked with students with a variety of learning challenges, from dyslexia to ADD. I'd love to help you learn to love math!

I approach math in a way designed to make the subject applicable and fun while bringing a deeper understanding than formula memorization can achieve. I've helped students, especially in Algebra 2 and Trig, go from failing or poor grades to average and excellent marks, building confidence along the way. I bring a hands-on, visually and kinesthetically appealing perspective to Geometry, especially in the subject of proofs. For Precalculus, I have the analytical skills necessary to help a student understand where he/she is struggling in a problem that often draws on 3+ unique skill sets.

I am available from 8am to 9pm weekdays and weekends, and I am open to shared lessons. Contact me for more information!

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.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 for two years at a private school in the Middle East. While teaching, I have also tutored students in Algebra 2. I have developed helpful strategies for analyzing why a student struggles with a particular subject in order to provide specific and on-target help.

Geometry

I have a year of experience in teaching geometry to students at a variety of skill levels. I have learned how to help students tackle logic and proofs in a way that makes the subject more accessible and enjoyable. I also have the algebra knowledge to help students connect the spatial part of geometry to real-world applications.

Knowledgeable & Patient Tutor — After the lesson session my son was actually happy and in a good mood!! Math is normally a sour topic in our household but he had nothing but positive things to say after meeting with Rebecca. I'm hoping this continues and his attitude toward math improves as well. ...
