About Rachel

Rachel is a passionate educator with experience working with hundreds of students from sixth grade through graduate school. She has taught English and Social Studies and tutored students in writing organized and thoughtful essays and application personal statements.

Before her family's recent relocation to Kansas City, Rachel taught eighth grade English and Social Studies at an elite private school in New York City. She facilitated daily discussions, text studies, and multi-genre writing exercises to empower her students and strengthen their individual skill sets as readers, writers, and thinkers.

Rachel completed her B.A. in English at Cornell University, graduating Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and her M.A. in English Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. While at Cornell, Rachel was a tutor at the Knight Institute Writing Walk-In Service. She advised dozens of undergraduate and graduate students on brainstorming, writing, and editing academic essays and personal statements, with a focus on thesis development, organization, and audience.

A strong believer that effective educators should also be lifelong learners, Rachel seeks out opportunities to further develop her teaching skills. Most recently, she participated in workshops with Facing History and Ourselves and the New York Public Library. She also dabbles in different forms of writing and has had her journalistic and creative work published by the Jerusalem Post and Cornell’s Ink Magazine.

Rachel is patient, organized, and eager to adapt her teaching practices to her students’ individual strengths, needs, and goals.

In her spare time, she loves to cook, travel, and peruse the shelves of her local library branch.

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.

Social Studies

I taught Social Studies, specifically 8th grade American history, in New York City for four years. I have taken several professional development workshops with Facing History and Ourselves and other organizations that support educators with the teaching of history and civics. I also took several history courses as an undergraduate with world renowned scholars at Cornell University.
