"Let ME help YOU reach your full potential!" ~ Dr. Bekah
While in college, I enjoyed teaching so much that I held "study sessions" for classmates so that I could help them as well. In medical school (and throughout training), I tutored other 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 relaxed student is one willing to work hard to learn the material!
As the mother of a 21-year-old college senior, who is a triple major recently returning from a Senate internship in Washington, D.C and applying to Law School, I have spent many years teaching organizational skills, time management and study techniques, focusing on the tremendous impact it has on your educational abilities and future endeavors. I enjoy working with young adults in high school or in undergraduate programs, and with nursing students, medical students and graduate students, as well.
Holding a doctorate, I have a very strong background in the Sciences. I enjoy teaching and tutoring pre- requisite 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 those, 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!
**Of note, Organic Chemistry is typically a class many undergraduate students struggle with. It is VERY important to do well right from the beginning of this class. I really ENJOY working with students in this class and have past and current students who will vouch that I CAN find ways to make it enjoyable AND manageable! Do NOT be scared. It is a difficult class...but it CAN be one that you do well in with some hard work and an effective tutor! :) "Let ME help YOU reach your full potential!" ~ Dr. Bekah

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.
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.
I earned my Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) in 2007. Medicine demands a strong foundation and understanding of Human Anatomy and Physiology. Physiology is the understanding of how the organ systems of the body work, both independently and together. My teaching style is one of UNDERSTANDING and LEARNING the material and not memorization. I have dedicated myself to making learning fun, so that you will remember material we have covered in order to test well.
