About Rebecca


Bio

My specialty is in literature and writing in the middle and high school levels. I am also available to proofread term papers, check citations, and other basic editing jobs. I can provide a few hours of tutoring with a particular issue or teach the language arts/reading/literature part of your homeschool curriculum.

My specialty is in literature and writing in the middle and high school levels. I am also available to proofread term papers, check citations, and other basic editing jobs. I can provide a few hours of tutoring with a particular issue or teach the language arts/reading/literature part of your homeschool curriculum.

The best way to understand literature and to write better is to read: a lot. I am a voracious reader in addition to my BA in English Language and Literature (graduated summa cum laude, 4.0, and as one of eight honor graduates in English). Additionally, I am currently enrolled in the Creative Writing master's program. I have homeschooled both my children (now 25 and completing her degree in anthropology and ready-to-graduate high school 17) and I've taught scuba diving, first aid, and CPR to both children and adults. I am active in my son's boy scout troop and venture crew.

I love tutoring because the mentor can really focus on the needs of the individual student. While some students simply need a sounding board for their ideas, some students need to be able to go outside the box to be able to 'get' the lesson. It is incredibly rewarding to see a student connect with a lesson or idea they have been struggling with.

I have a very good working knowledge of children's literature, young adult literature, as well as classical literature and poetry. I believe in finding a common ground with the student and using analogies and humor to help a student understand difficult concepts.

The route through the tangled mess that is our language may not always be easy, but there are guides along the way. I hope to be able to guide you soon.
