I have firsthand knowledge of rigorous Common Core Standards, the new SAT Verbal preparation, I.E.P. laws and implementation, and multiple strategies for renewing confidence in the learning process.

Thank you for using this moment to learn more about me! I am a college professor and certificated English teacher with experience at all grade levels. I have firsthand knowledge of rigorous Common Core Standards, the new SAT Verbal preparation, I.E.P. laws and implementation, and multiple strategies for renewing confidence in the learning process.

I am the mother of three grown children, and, like you, I realized early on that our kids need caring, patient, and differentiated instruction if we expect them to grow and thrive as adults. As a former Center Director for a national educational organization, I can say from experience that a diagnostic, prescriptive approach to teaching works. However, a good instructor also knows how to mentor her students and "meet them at the starting line" for lessons to take hold. I hope to become that instructor for you.

So, how do we start? For tutoring to work, families need to feel comfortable with and confident in their teacher. The first time I meet with you, I will take time to answer all of your questions about my teaching and mentoring experiences. More importantly, I will want to hear about your goals! Goals can be as simple as "passing English" or more specific, such as earning a 90% or higher on an upcoming exam. My task is to listen first and then apply my expertise as we map out our team approach.

I firmly believe that every child can learn but sometimes we need to provide extra help and guidance. That's why it is so important to find the right tutor for your student- someone who embraces the process, works through the obstacles, and then celebrates the success along with you! I look forward to meeting you and talking more about what we can accomplish together.

Great tutor

My daughter, while achieving A's in school, was requiring a little fine tuning in English to prepare her for high school overseas, SAT/ACT prep, college, and eventually overall success. Thus far my daughter has felt more comfortable compiling information for papers. Her vocabulary has expanded, and her reading comprehension has improved. I am very pleased with the improvements they have made together. Becky also drove quite a distance to meet with us and was flexible with time and location. Thank you Becky!!

Knowledgeable and patient

She was very patient with my son, and made him use critical thinking skills, with prompts when needed. She knew the book very well, and was able to help him in the first step of getting his essay done. Thank you so much.
