About Rachel

For some students, it's difficult to retain information learned in a classroom setting-that's why I'm here.

One-on-one attention during sessions specifically taught in their learning style makes my tutoring unique. That tailoring allows us to spend more time engaged and focused on mastering academic goals.

I have a bachelor’s degree in English with an emphasis in Language Arts, which required successful completion of coursework to teach reading, writing and children’s literature. My earliest experience as a tutor began with my peers in college and continued with my work at an after-school program, tutoring elementary and high school students. Currently, I work with teenage girls teaching life skills.

As a parent, I fully understand the desire to have your child succeed. I have compassion, and the education and experience to help them thrive.

Rachel W. is really helping my daughter learn the things she is studying in class. My daughter tried to give her a hard time but Rachel worked with her and she is understanding her work. I really appreciate her.
