About Rachel

My teaching experience began with creating and teaching an Independent Study at Harvard University Graduate School Education, while being an undergraduate at Boston University School of Education. My writing skills were also valuable when submitting a 1.5 page biography that resulted in my being accepted to University of London School of Education, London, England. For my student teaching experience, the opportunity was to teach an 8th grade English at Edward Devotion School in Brookline, MA. I was also chosen to teach Torah Study to 5th graders, at Temple Israel, Boston, MA.

The next opportunity was extensive experience with inner city children that were hard to motivate (Baltimore City, MD) and was listed in the top 20/20,000 teachers. The result of excellent evaluations allowed my skills to be added to other teachers, resulting in one of the first written tests necessary to graduate High School; these tests were called Proficient Tests. Finally, have extensive experience teaching in the Baltimore County, MD School System. This involved teaching English (grades 10-12) and Journalism. All these opportunities were the result of my ability to communicate both verbally and in writing clearly and succinctly.

After teaching English (writing, reading, grammar and composition) for 8 years, I created a job to pay for Business School tuition that resulted in Boston College and Boston University contributing 60% of my tuition. The opportunity at Boston College was greater and thus, choose BC.

Since then, I have had papers published by MIT Enterprise Forum, professional journals and was a featured columnist in professional trade magazines (Recruitment Today, Selikoff 2000 and Go For IT!). The day to day work is comprised of creating and running companies and festivals, writing the necessary marketing collateral, consulting to medical practices and companies to augment their presence in the market place, and printing publications. Thanks for taking the time for reviewing.

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.

Career Development

For over 25 years ran a national and international recruitment trade publishing house that was an out growth of my teaching at Harvard. I had papers published by MIT and served with the MIT Enterprise Forum, focusing on career development. The more rewarding a person's day to day activity is, the more rewarding it will be for all concerned. Through a short series of questions, the important guiding principles will emerge, resulting in the best direction.

English

I have experience teaching English and Journalism skills in suburban Boston, inner city and steel mill towns in Baltimore, MD and exposure to a gifted program in CA. All these student's efforts required organization, discipline and a desire to work smarter, not necessarily longer. I was ranked in the top 20/20,000 teachers and was able to create and publish a Student Study Program for passing the first High School Proficiency test. It worked! To this day, never begin a project with out organizing first.

Marketing

I am gifted with being able to separate a situation's problems from the symptoms and share a simple paragraph or two resulting in a solution. Through this skill, I was able to be accepted at the University of London in London, England, create an Independent Study that entailed teaching at Harvard University Grad School of Ed., Cambridge, MA, design two jobs that resulted in my MBA acceptance and 60% tuition being paid at Boston College and Boston university.

Finally, I created seven companies that allow for financial independence, all through the use of the above skills and the four (4) p's of marketing: price, place, promotion and product.

Public Speaking

Have been blessed with many key note speaking engagements the result of either winning awards or professional expertise. Some of these are: Small Business Association of MA (twice), Keynote Speaker for Womans' Group regarding Success, Entrepreneurial Experience as a Woman - Boston College, MA, MA Healthcare Recruiters Association for Integrity and Leadership.

The following were for professional knowledge:
London School, London, England - for Professional Medical Employment Knowledge, NE Physician Recruiters Association and Emcee for Festivals for Animals - Jackson Hole, WY.

Reading

Study skills simply require organization, discipline and a desire to be successful. As a teacher in the inner city, a steel mill town and suburban Boston, study skills aided my students being successful. PLUS, being the youngest, my siblings, cousins and family passed along a series of skills to be successful.

This composite allowed me to be scored in the top 20/20,000 teachers in Baltimore City, MD, and create and publish one of the first programs to aid in student's passing the High School Proficiency Test. This program taught student's the study skills to pass!
