About Rebecca

I have a Master's from Hunter College and a degree in Journalism from Indiana University. For the past eight years I have been in the classroom teaching pre-k4 and 1st graders. On weekends and the afternoons I tutor past students and others, ranging from ages 3 to 10. I love helping children learn and I am very passionate about making it the best experience they can have! I currently work in the Chicago Public School system and volunteer tutoring. I enjoy helping children understand that "hard homework" and helping it all just "click"! Please let me help you and your family succeed!

I teach every day, from writing names to stories. I can sing a song with direction to each and every letter and number, helping your child learn easily. If singing isn't their thing, I have tons of different tricks up my sleeve.

As an early childhood teacher, our entire curriculum is built around phonemic awareness. I have tons of different programs and approaches I use, one will for sure help your child.

I love to smile, laugh, and talk, so please ask me anything! Can't wait to meet you!

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.

Common Core

As a teacher in the Chicago Public School system and a previous teacher in Miami Dade public schools, I am very familiar with the common core curriculum.

Elementary (K-6th)

In today's classroom, pre-k is kindergarten, kindergarten is 1st, and so on. Curriculums are moving faster and children need extra help. I have a master's degree in early childhood and elementary and spend my days in the classroom and volunteering, helping children in grades pre-k through 6th learn!

Handwriting

With knowledge of Handwriting without Tears, Zaner-Blosers, Letterland, and more, I am a perfect candidate to teach any child, no matter the struggle, how to write.

Phonics

With The Heggerty approach, Letterland, and regular classroom teaching, I have familiarity with many phonemic lessons. As a pre-k teacher, I am constantly teaching the 42 sounds. I am fully equipped with my own collections of phonemic teaching songs, games, and activities.
