About Rachel

I would be happy to help tutor any student, ranging from grades kindergarten to 6th. I earned my degree in Elementary Education in 2012 from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. During the last year of earning my degree I student-taught a 5th grade classroom in the subjects of math, science, social studies, reading, and English. I created my own lessons for each of these subjects, catering towards the large variety of learning strategies in my classroom.

I also spent a lot of one-on-one time with my students who struggled, especially in the subjects of reading, science and history. I paid attention to the type of learner I was working with and created lessons that fit their style of learning, be it memorization and quizzes or PowerPoint games. I wanted to make sure that the way I taught the particular student fit their particular learning style.

Recently I just returned from teaching English as a Foreign Language from 2013-2014 to students ranging from 4th to 8th grade in South Korea. Here I spent 5 days a week teaching the subjects of reading, writing and speaking. I have a TEFL/TESOL certification to teach English as a Foreign Language and am qualified to tutor in this subject as well. I spent a year at my teaching job in South Korea and am capable of using this skill for any student who needs help learning English.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I earned my degree in Elementary Education in May 2012. I student taught in a 5th grade classroom from August 2011 to May 2012. I am certified to teach subjects k-6th in the state of North Carolina.

Handwriting

I have a degree in Elementary Education earned in May 2012. I am qualified to teach grades k-6th in the state of North Carolina. Part of this qualification includes teaching students, especially in the earlier years, how to have legible handwriting.

Soccer

I played soccer for 12 years year-round. My father was my coach for 10 of those 12 years. Through his coaching I was able to observe not only how to be a good team player and soccer athlete, but also what drills and games worked best for teams to practice, as partners, groups and individually to become great players.

Social Studies

I earned my degree in Elementary Education in May 2012. I am also certified to teach grades k-6th in the state of North Carolina. I spent the year 2011-2012 teaching a class of 5th graders, including the subject of Social Studies. I particularly spent a lot of time on these lessons because I enjoy re-learning this subject and passing it on to others.

Study Skills

As part of my student-teaching experience, I spent a lot of one-on-one time helping students who struggle with certain subjects. In doing so, I practiced a variety of study-skills according to how the particular student learned best. This included different strategies to make studying not only more fun, but also more efficient and especially involved a lot of visual stimulation.
