About Rebecca

I am an experienced math and reading tutor. I enjoy helping students build confidence in their math and reading skills. I have tutored kindergarten through college students, as well as adults who need help with math and English for the GED, ASVAB and TEAS.

I have worked as a tutor at a middle school and grade school, and have been tutoring since 2000. I attended tutor training by the Student Literacy Corps, Webster University and Americorps Vista.

Reading was a favorite hobby of mine growing up and I love to help students improve their ability to read. My previous reading student did not know the sounds of the alphabet when I met him. He is now on par with his 3rd grade class and loves to read to everyone.

Math was my favorite subject in school. I will tutor basic math, Algebra, Geometry, ASVAB, ACT, GED and TEAS. I love helping people to decipher word problems and understand algebra. One previous 4th-grade student raised her math grade from 58% to 95%. Another student raised her grade from a C to an A in just a few sessions.

My main focus is to help students to learn and build confidence. I meet students at a local library in the Overland Park area. I will tutor math online IF we are unable to schedule an in-person meeting, and the student needs help soon. Please contact me if interested. Thanks!

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.

ACT Math

I have experience tutoring many students for the ACT math section. I myself scored the highest ACT score anyone in my high school had ever achieved. I love helping people understand math.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary math for students as young as kindergarten. Some are behind, while others want to get ahead. Every child is different, so I plan tutoring sessions around individuals. I have used school books, dinosaurs, bears, play money, clocks, games, flashcards, worksheets, and crayons to help students to understand math concepts. Some students are able to work with just their math class work, while others need things explained from a new point of view.

Phonics

I have been teaching reading skills with a focus on phonics for many years. I have a weekly plan that takes a student from start to finish of a full school year of phonics. Each person I have tutored has improved reading skill up to his or her class level. Building confidence and a love of reading is my focus.

Prealgebra

I've been tutoring prealgebra and algebra since I was a student in those classes. I love helping students to decipher word problems, and solve for that ever-present x.

Reading

I have helped many students improve reading skills and build self esteem. I trained to be a reading tutor with Webster University's Student Literacy Corp and AmericorpVista. Each person I have tutored has improved reading skill up to his or her class level. I love reading and enjoy helping students.

TEAS

I have tutored students who are prepping for the TEAS. My focus is on the math, English, and reading sections. I have a TEAS prep book to use during tutoring sessions.

Rebecca tutored me for my online College Algebra class. She has a thorough understanding of all the math concepts and was able to help me understand how all the problems worked or needed to be solved. Very easy to get along with and highly recommended. AAA+ Thanks!
