About Rachel


Bio

Math is not an easy subject by any means, and I certainly know this being a physicist. It can be frustrating and sometimes you might just give up after studying and not even want to look at another question. But why struggle and get frustrated when you can have an experienced, patient tutor helping you along with math? There are many complex moments in math but I am able to break it down and make it easier for you to understand.

Math is not an easy subject by any means, and I certainly know this being a physicist. It can be frustrating and sometimes you might just give up after studying and not even want to look at another question. But why struggle and get frustrated when you can have an experienced, patient tutor helping you along with math? There are many complex moments in math but I am able to break it down and make it easier for you to understand.

My experience in tutoring/education is the following: In the summer of 2017 I was an Educational Instructor at iDTech Camps teaching students from ages 6-12 computer science and game design. In this job, patience was key and after this experience, I gained even more patience and improved my teaching skills.
From 2012-2016 I volunteered for 150 hours to be an Earth Science instructor for New York's Monroe Woobury Science Olympiad team. In this job, I worked one-on-one with students teaching them astronomy, earth sciences, and geology.

I love teaching passionate students and watch them grow and improve their skills, especially in math. I know what it feels like to see that you are falling behind everyone else, but with my simplistic teaching, students will be able to feel that confidence in class again.

I specialize in Calculus 1 & 2 and this is where math can begin to get messy and extremely difficult, but yet these are the foundations that you must build for college. I have a strong understanding in Precalc, Trig, and Algebra 1&2 and without knowing these, Calculus will be practically a nightmare. My simple and straightforward teaching will help ease all the confusion and muddle that might've been taught to you in class. I will first begin by evaluating your mastery of the subject and work on your weak points, answer all questions that you might have, and begin giving you a mini lecture, and then have you do practice problems. For each problem I will be there to help you work out if you get stuck. I truly believe that practice makes perfect so I will assign multiple problems during our session, and although this may be strenuous at first, this will guarantee mastery later.

I am available on Friday nights and Saturday mornings. I will do a minimum of 2 hours and a max of 4 per session. I am flexible though and am able to come to your location or if you feel more comfortable, we can meet at the local library. I am more than happy to have a consultation with you so we can get to know each other a bit better and see if you feel I am a good fit for you. Thank you!
