Experienced Math Tutor, K-12 and College Level
Since 2003 I have been tutoring/teaching mathematics. I am a certified high school Math teacher in the state of Maine. I am certified to teach k-12 Mathematics, Social Studies, and Spanish. Before that, I taught at University of Maine Orono as a TA for two years, and at The College of Coastal Georgia as the Math Tutor Coordinator. I have a BA in History and a BA in Mathematics with a Minor in Spanish.
As a passionate, well-rounded educator, I love to show my students the practical uses...

Best Tutor Ever
Rachael has been awesome! I have been working with her from College Algebra up through Cal 3, and she has been a massive part of my success and understanding in Math. I was never a great math student, but I am consistently getting A's and B's in most of my course work with her help. She has masters in Mathematics and was a teacher for many years, but now runs an organic farm. She has a pretty flexible schedule so we can ramp up to down as needed. She has a remarkable ability to explain a concept from different angles to help get to the essence of an idea or problem, and she is full of little tricks of the trade and short cuts that have been lifesavers. If you are willing to put in the work, she is more than happy to reciprocate the efforts towards making sure you can accomplish your math goals.

My daughter enjoyed her lesson and came to me after with excitement about math I haven’t seen from her in a while. Rachael showed her things she was not familiar with and layed out a plan for future lessons.

Still loving Rachel
Rachel has been an excellent tutor for my son in college statistics. She is super patient with him and gives him guidance on being prepared for class and sessions with her. I don't know what I would do without her! Have also been using her for accounting and so far is going well.

Helped Me Catch Up and Understand Geometry
I got behind in geometry and RAchael is helping me quickly catch up and understand the work. Before contacting Rachael, I tried to get several people to help me understand the assignments, and no one was able to help me.
