Webster University Saint Louis, MO (B.A.)
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! I am an experienced math and reading tutor.

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!
Rebecca helped my son with several ACT subjects. He has learned a lot in each session and is much more confident now.
She has a thorough and organized approach to covering each subject. Also, she accommodated his ever changing football schedule whenever she could.
Becky is helping my daughter prep or her ACT. They are working on both Math and English. My daughter states that she feels like she is learning a lot in the hour time period. Becky also sends her with homework to complete each week to see how she is progressing.
After only 3 sessions, we are starting to see progress. He has struggled with reading so much that he fears it. Rebecca is helping him overcome the fear by making it fun and building his confidence. We highly recommend her!
Rebecca is a wonderful instructor. She helped my daughter gain clear insight and understanding on a book report assignment. I definitely recommend her service. Very quick to respond to questions and provides person to person tutoring which was what I was looking for.
Rebecca has helped our son with geometry. She is very patient & flexible with scheduling. I would recommend her to anyone.
This was a pleasant experience. I was nervous at first. It's difficult to meet with a stranger about something that makes feel vulnerable or insecure. I was very comfortable and look forward to the next time. While I'm not a fan of math, she teaches in a way that I can understand and enjoy.
Good progress to date in helping Austin learn some valuable tips and gain confidence. I expect him to do much better on his upcoming ACT exam.
So far very pleased with my son's sessions with Becky. She is helping him get prepared for the ACT. He was very apprehensive about how he was going to get along with a Tutor but his comment after his first session was, "I really like her!". That's high praise coming from a 17 year old! She is very detailed with her class notes and does a great job giving him homework to sharpen his skills.
I initially went to Becky for math help and to improve my ACT score. She helped me with every subject, especially English and math. I improved my ACT by 5 points. I can definitely say I couldn't have done it without her help. She gave me the confidence that I needed to do well in all subjects of the ACT!
We are very pleased with the tutoring that Rebecca has provided for our son in preparation for the ACT exam. He felt more prepared and confident after their lessons.
We've been very impressed with Rebecca's ability to help our daughter improve her skills in math. The proof is in the pudding: better grades and a new-found confidence in 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
