About Rachel

I am entering into my 4th year of teaching at a suburban high school. In addition to teaching, I have also tutored for many years. The majority of my tutoring experience has been for students who have been unable to attend the high school for some reason. I really have enjoyed tutoring for these students because I know that I am providing them with the opportunity to get an education even when they're not currently capable to attending school. For many of these students, I have gone above and beyond.
As a teacher, I have had experience teaching everything; I have taught science, social studies, English, and math. I am a special education teacher, so I get the opportunity to provide my students with an education that best meets their specific needs in a variety of subjects. As a tutor, it is my job to meet your individual needs as well.


While I have been in a variety of different classrooms, I have always been an English teacher at my present position. Each year I work to make the curriculum more exciting and challenging. I also try to incorporate instruction that will prepare students for the "real world." Since I primarily work with students with special needs, I have a lot of experience working with reading and writing strategies. In addition, I have always been excellent at vocabulary and work to instill this in my students.

My experience in teaching and tutoring has lead me to seek out more opportunities to assist other students in whatever their needs are. I would more than happy to answer any questions about my experience and strategies.
