About Rebecca


Bio

I am an experienced math, reading and ACT tutor. I enjoy helping students build confidence in their math and reading skills. I have tutored kindergarten through college students, as well as adults who need help with math and English for the GED, ASVAB and nursing entrance exams.

I have worked as a tutor at a middle school and grade school, and have been tutoring since 2000. I received training from the Student Literacy Corps, Webster University and Americorps Vista.

I am an experienced math, reading and ACT tutor. I enjoy helping students build confidence in their math and reading skills. I have tutored kindergarten through college students, as well as adults who need help with math and English for the GED, ASVAB and nursing entrance exams.

I have worked as a tutor at a middle school and grade school, and have been tutoring since 2000. I received training from the Student Literacy Corps, Webster University and Americorps Vista.

Reading was a favorite hobby of mine growing up and I love to help students improve their ability to read. I have helped many students improve their reading skills through weekly tutoring sessions and interactive activities.

Math was my favorite subject in school. I will tutor basic math, prealgebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, ASVAB, ACT, GED and TEAS. I love helping people to decipher word problems and understand algebra. One previous 4th-grade student raised her math grade from 58% to 95%. Another student raised her grade from a C to an A in just a few sessions. I also enjoy helping students who wish to get ahead of the class. For these students, I teach new concepts and follow the order outlined on Kuta (or their school website).

My main focus is to help students to learn and build confidence. I meet students at a local library. I will tutor math online for students who are not in my city. Please contact me if interested. Thanks!

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary math for students as young as kindergarten. Some are behind, while others want to get ahead. Every child is different, so I plan tutoring sessions around individuals. I have used school books, dinosaurs, bears, play money, clocks, games, flashcards, worksheets, and crayons to help students to understand math concepts. Some students are able to work with just their math class work, while others need things explained from a new point of view.

I have been teaching reading skills with a focus on phonics for many years. I have a weekly plan that takes a student from start to finish of a full school year of phonics. Each person I have tutored has improved reading skill up to his or her class level. Building confidence and a love of reading is my focus.

Fantastic!

She went over exactly what was needed to catch him up. My son never complained about going to see her and he was actually able to sit for the full hour, which I never thought was possible.

Jenny, 10 lessons with Rebecca

Great ACT Tutor

Rebecca helped my son with several ACT subjects. He has learned a lot in each session and is much more confident now. She has a thorough and organized approach to covering each subject. Also, she accommodated his ever changing football schedule whenever she could.

Cindy, 4 lessons with Rebecca

Excellent Tutor

Becky is helping my daughter prep or her ACT. They are working on both Math and English. My daughter states that she feels like she is learning a lot in the hour time period. Becky also sends her with homework to complete each week to see how she is progressing.

Nicki, 9 lessons with Rebecca

Engages my inattentive child!

After only 3 sessions, we are starting to see progress. He has struggled with reading so much that he fears it. Rebecca is helping him overcome the fear by making it fun and building his confidence. We highly recommend her!

Rebecca is a great tutor!

Rebecca tutored me for my online College Algebra class. She has a thorough understanding of all the math concepts and was able to help me understand how all the problems worked or needed to be solved. Very easy to get along with and highly recommended. AAA+ Thanks!

JESSE, 12 lessons with Rebecca

Great tutor on short notice

Rebecca is a wonderful instructor. She helped my daughter gain clear insight and understanding on a book report assignment. I definitely recommend her service. Very quick to respond to questions and provides person to person tutoring which was what I was looking for.

Louie, 2 lessons with Rebecca

Very good geometry teacher

Rebecca has helped our son with geometry. She is very patient & flexible with scheduling. I would recommend her to anyone.

Jeff, 16 lessons with Rebecca

Kind, mellow, and patient tutor

This was a pleasant experience. I was nervous at first. It's difficult to meet with a stranger about something that makes feel vulnerable or insecure. I was very comfortable and look forward to the next time. While I'm not a fan of math, she teaches in a way that I can understand and enjoy.

Jami, 9 lessons with Rebecca

Provides easy to learn tips that can be put into practice immediately

Good progress to date in helping Austin learn some valuable tips and gain confidence. I expect him to do much better on his upcoming ACT exam.
