About Becky

I have a master's of education in school guidance counseling and can work with students on college counseling. For example, I can help students create a list of colleges and help them edit their college essays. I can also tutor any academic subject from elementary school through high school, with the exception of high-level math and science. I can tutor math through Algebra II and any level of English or social studies. I took calculus, chemistry, and physics in high school, but I'm too rusty to tutor these topics currently. In addition to tutoring.

I currently work for a tutoring company tutoring students on the ACT, SAT, SSAT, and ISEE, but I can only tutor academic subjects independently (my company has a non-compete clause for test-prep services). In the past, I have provided academic support for students at a local middle school. I helped students with organization and motivation in addition to academics. I am upbeat, enthusiastic, and supportive.

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.

College Counseling

I have a master's degree in school guidance counseling and have completed an internship as a guidance counselor at a high school.

Study Skills

I have a master's degree in school guidance counseling and have worked with many students on study skills and organization. While living in Pennsylvania, I tutored a high school junior with learning disabilities two or three days a week. We worked on all of his subjects including history, religion, English, math, and chemistry. While I am not as solid on the chemistry subject matter, we worked on how to study for tests.
