About Rachel


Bio

As a poet, I'd worked in a variety of art-related fields before attending graduate school. I try to incorporate that sort of creative work and thinking into my lessons with students. Recently, I've worked as an academic coach, a writing center coordinator, and as a lecturer in Academic Writing and Creative Writing at a top public university. When I meet with students I try to assess their strengths and weaknesses on a macro and micro level. What this means is that I try to help students...

As a poet, I'd worked in a variety of art-related fields before attending graduate school. I try to incorporate that sort of creative work and thinking into my lessons with students. Recently, I've worked as an academic coach, a writing center coordinator, and as a lecturer in Academic Writing and Creative Writing at a top public university. When I meet with students I try to assess their strengths and weaknesses on a macro and micro level. What this means is that I try to help students develop methods of organization, balanced against formal skills like grammar, diction, and syntax. I find that my techniques help students to approach their writing and reading from a vastly different—and more engaging— perspective than they've likely been asked. My students develop confidence in their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills, which often affects their academic and social skills beyond writing. These are skills I teach in all types of tutoring whether for social studies/politics & government, test preparation, or English. I also love to work with students in creative writing—fiction, poetry, and non-fiction.

Great Tutor!

Rachel is an excellent tutor, teacher, and scholar. My son was a fair writer, but has shown significant improvement in his writing after a few visits. We look forward to his continued progress with her help.
