About Rebekah

After earning my undergraduate degree in mathematics, I earned a master's degree in library and information science. I have worked in a middle school in Aurora, IL for seven years, at elementary schools in Streator, IL, and in the community college in Oglesby, IL. I now work in a public library.

I took every chance I could get to help with math in the schools where I've worked, so I have had the chance to tutor students from middle school through college, as well as adult learners. I'm delighted when I can help my students understand.

I love teaching math from Prealgebra and Algebra to Geometry and Precalculus. I'll help you see why your textbook or teacher is telling you to take certain steps to work through a problem. I'll help you remember the steps to take, and prompt you in sample problems. I do my best to give creative examples explaining math problems, relating them to the concrete world.

I help students prepare for standardized tests from the ACT to the GRE. I teach students how to write well and help them proofread and cite English papers. I have taught computer skills to beginners, from basic introductions to general computers to how to use Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel.

I look forward to the chance to help you!

Fantastic tutor

Rebekah was able to successfully help my child increase their ACT score dramatically in Science, Reading and English. She identified my child's weaknesses and honed in on what would be most beneficial to see immediate results. I believe Rebekah's best attribute is her ability to break things down into smaller parts which lends itself to a fuller understanding in tougher areas. My child liked how
