About Rebecca

Hello,

My name is Rebecca. I am a recent graduate of Towson University with my Masters in Education. I am a certified biology and chemistry teacher for the secondary level (grades 7-12). I have a lot of experience with tutoring the sciences as well as math. I am incredibly flexible with my schedule and will try to find what works best for both of us. My sessions will need to be in the afternoons/ evenings on week days but my weekends are very open to fitting in students. I have a very high success rate of improving student performance in school and increasing their study skills so they may continue to improve without assistance. My ultimate goal of tutoring is to teach the skills necessary to learn the subject so that students may become independent learners.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of my strongest subjects. Anything from grade school algebra to college algebra.

Anatomy

I have a vast knowledge of the human body and the organs that comprise it. I have taken a few anatomy classes and did very well in them.

Biology

Biology is one of my strongest subjects. I know everything from cells to taxonomy.

Chemistry

Chemistry is a strong subject for me. I have taken AP chemistry as well as general chemistry 1 and 2. I have done very well in all of the stated classes and am comfortable teaching others.

Ecology

Ecology is a strong subject for me. I have taken many ecology classes and have a lot of knowledge about how ecosystems work.

Elementary (K-6th)

Since the website does not offer elementary level problem solving and math skills, I am offering it to people who want their child to succeed in all aspects, not just English. If your child is struggling with their math skills, I am the person to help.

English

English is not my strongest suit but, I know enough to help through high school English and college writing classes.

Flute

I have been playing flute for 4 years and am very good at understanding everything from how to blow into the flute to forming notes and reading music.

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite math classes. I know how to do everything from simple areas to proofs.

Piano

I have been playing piano for 9 years and have a vast knowledge of how to theory and technique to pass on to students.

Softball

Softball is a hobby of mine that I still enjoy. I have been playing since I was very young. I have played slow and fast pitch softball. I most often played catcher and 2nd base but i understand the duties of the other positions as well. I understand the fundamentals of softball and am able to teach the basics such as rules, throwing, catching and hitting.

Swimming

I am lifeguard, CPR and first aid certified. Swimming is something I enjoy and have knowledge of many different strokes including: freestyle, breast stroke, and back stroke.

Rebecca is a fabulous tutor. — My daughter is beginning to feel better about herself now that she is understanding how to do her math assignments. My child learns from Rebecca and is demonstrating it in class by showing other students what she has learned! I am very encouraged and confident that with continued help from Rebecca that my daughter will begin to love math and excel at it. ...
