About Rachel

Hello potential student and parent!

I am a graduate of Evangel University with certification (expired last year) in Elementary Education. For the past 2 years I have taught as a privately contracted teacher of two elementary aged students. In addition to teaching elementary students, I have also taught elementary Spanish (basic level Spanish) to students in grades 7th-12th. At the completion of this summer, I will have also taught foreign students English as a second language. Because of my experience of working one-on-one and in small groups, I have become accustomed to teaching according to the needs of the students.

My style of teaching is simple: I know my students don't like to be bored, nor do I like to be bored so I try to avoid teaching in a boring manner. With that in mind, I like to teach using activities that keeps the mind active while getting the necessary knowledge across to my students. I also try to be aware that when something is not working, I change to something else that will work. While I like to use different activities to teach, maintaining structure and order so that the students get the best learning experience is most important to me.

Thank you to stopping and reading a little about who I am as a teacher and as a potential tutor.

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.

Basketball

I played league basketball from 7-13. At age 14, I played for the freshmen basketball team, and at age 16 to 18 I played at the varsity level. I continued to practice throughout college but did not formally play for any leagues or teams.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated in 2011 with a BA in Elementary Education. For my BA requirements, I observed several grades including the lower and upper levels of the primary years. I also completed student teaching, in which I taught a 2nd grade class for one semester.

My work experience includes: substituting for Springfield Public Schools (1 semester); teaching basic level Spanish teacher (2 semesters); and being a privately contracted teacher two students (2 semesters, starting grades were 3rd and 5th).

Prealgebra

I have taught pre-algebra and other levels of math that come prior to the subject, which allows me to make sure the background knowledge is present.
