About Rebecca

Hello! My name is Rebecca. I am an elementary school teacher! I currently teach second grade for a Montgomery County Public School, but I've also taught first and third grade. I have additional experience with students from pre-k to sixth grade.

I think what makes me a fantastic teacher is what makes me a great tutor. I love every child. I like the quirky one, the shy one, the talker, the silly one, and every other one. Every student in my class is loved. I think this really matters. If you care about someone, you really want them to succeed and you will do anything to make that happen.

I also love imparting new knowledge. It's fun to think about what someone already knows and then lead them through questioning and reasoning to discover something new. It's fun to have someone walk away and think "This made sense."

While I am a great teacher in all subjects, I find that I am particularly talented in math. For example, this year I taught my students time. Teachers know that time is very difficult. I am happy to report that all my students mastered the common core standards for time in two days. The class then moved on to more challenging work for the remainder of that time. No pun intended!

Beyond my attitude and skills, I am reliable, responsible, and resourceful. I charge $65 an hour. You will get what you pay for.

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.

Common Core

I am a certified second-grade teacher for Montgomery County Public Schools, so I teach the common core for all subjects. I will take a standard such as asking and answering questions for reading and I will think about ways to teach that standard to my students. I have read books aloud and showed kids how to turn what they are wondering about into questions. At the same time, I have taught students to answer questions by rereading the book to find the answer. I have done this for all subjects.

Elementary (K-6th)

Currently, I teach second grade for Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland. I have been teaching for five years. Monday through Friday, I teach reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. In reading, I teach students decoding and comprehension strategies along with monitoring skills. In math, I teach three-digit place value, operations, linear measurement, time, and the beginning of fractions (called partitioning). For writing, I teach informative, narrative, and opinion writing. Students always go through the writing process by prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing. Science and social studies deals with life cycles, biographies, markets, etc. I know I am more than qualified as I have also taught first, third, and forth grade.

Friendly and patient.

My daughter can be hard to work with at times, but Rebecca handled it without any issues. She was able to pull my daughter into conversation.
