"Let ME help YOU reach your full potential!" ~ Dr. Bekah
While in college, I loved teaching so much that I held "study sessions" for my classmates so that I could help them to learn the information as well. In medical school (and throughout my medical training), I tutored other medical students as it was truly the best way to learn. I enjoy teaching people new things, and I am able to look at the entire picture to determine which methods of learning best suit their needs (i.e. visual, auditory, repetition, drawing, examples, etc.). It is also very important to connect with each individual, so that they know that you have their best interests at heart. A comfortable student is one willing to work hard to learn the material!
As the mother of a 17-year-old high school senior, I have spent many years teaching organizational skills, time management, study techniques and their facilitation, as well as the important impact it has on your educational abilities. I am proud to say that my daughter maintains a 4.25 GPA and is in all Honors and AP classes! She recently interviewed at YALE and DARTMOUTH for undergrad, and I couldn't be more proud! I enjoy working with young adults in high school or college, nursing students, medical students and graduate students.
Holding a doctorate, I have a very strong background in all sciences and math. I enjoy teaching and tutoring nursing classes, as well as medical school classes and am especially enthusiastic about these. I love a challenge! I enjoy working with someone new to find their strengths and build on that, to not only educate them, but boost their confidence and self-esteem as well! This creates an enthusiastic environment for a lifetime of learning. I primarily teach college level and graduate level courses in the scientific arena, however I will work with young adults in high school, especially AP classes, and look forward to meeting your needs as well!

After our first lesson, I already feel more confident and I have a much better understanding of the material. She does not just tutor, she teaches! She does not move on until you understand the material. She is patient, but she makes sure you know your stuff because she likes to quiz you to keep you on your toes. Her teaching skills are amazing! In less than 2 hours I was able to draw, label, and understand the brachial plexus and was also able to label the major parts of the skull and name the cranial nerves. She gave me an assignment to help prepare me for next time and will start off with a quiz to make sure I have review the material. I am 100% certain that with her help, I will be able to improve my test score and pass anatomy!
Our son was struggling with Geometry and Biology. Dr. Bekah was able to help our son understand and learn the concepts in both classes. She is very patient, creative and extremely smart. Her ability to relate to our son and teach the materials in a way that made sense to him is truly the sign of an exceptional teacher. She is not your average tutor. We highly recommend her!!
I'm a sophomore at Wayne State and I had decided to take Organic Chemistry over the summer. I had always struggled with Chemistry starting from high school and convinced myself that I could pull through. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Halfway through the semester I realized that I needed help. When I found Dr. Bekah, set up sessions within a week after finding her on WyzAnt. She proved to be extremely reliable and flexible. She is EXTREMELY passionate about teaching and she'll do anything to see you succeed. I had three hour sessions that flew by because she'd have me so focused. She helped me understand concepts rather than memorize them. Everything from pop quizzes to homework assignments helped reiterate the chapters we had covered in previous sessions. All in all, SHE'S GREAT!
In a matter of weeks, near the end of the school year, Bekah transformed our son's grades in advanced algebra. She is so smart and extremely positive and related to our son immediately, no small task. We would highly recommend her on any of her listed subjects and will definitely be using her services in the future to keep our son on track. She's the best.
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.
Currently holding an M.D., I obviously prepared for and did well on the MCATS in order to secure interviews at my top 3 Medical Schools, including Dartmouth and the University of Vermont College of Medicine. I secured a spot and graduated from the program of my choice. The MCAT is a standardized test required for medical school admission in the US. It requires you to combine knowledge, critical thinking, and time management skills in order to succeed. With patience, focus and flexibility in your learning style….you, too, can ace this exam!
Organic Chemistry is the study of carbon compounds and the reactions performed with such compounds. I thrived in Organic Chemistry in College and loved teaching it THEN to fellow students and received very high grades. Additionally, I scored well on the MCATs (Medical College Admission Tests) which tests Organic Chemistry ...and subsequently interviewed, was accepted and trained in Medical School, taking courses in Biochemistry, which IS the Organic chemistry of biological compounds in the body. I have graduated with an M.D. and since continued to teach Biochemistry to medical students, and Organic Chemistry and MCAT preparation to Undergraduate students.
