About Rachel


Bio

Before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my four children, I worked for three years as a Special Education teacher, covering many grades from pre-kindergarten through ninth grade. (I'm now a homeschooling mom and have been providing private tutoring services for over 7 years.) I loved helping my students grow academically and personally to overcome obstacles, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, emotional disorders, reading struggles, etc. I strive to create fun,...

Before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my four children, I worked for three years as a Special Education teacher, covering many grades from pre-kindergarten through ninth grade. (I'm now a homeschooling mom and have been providing private tutoring services for over 7 years.) I loved helping my students grow academically and personally to overcome obstacles, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, emotional disorders, reading struggles, etc. I strive to create fun, interactive lessons to help students learn - and enjoy the learning process! I've seen great success among my students by using tactile and visual resources as much as possible.

I am also fluent in American Sign Language and have worked as an Interpreter for the Deaf. I am available to tutor students who wish to learn the language, as well as to tutor students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (or whose parents/caregivers are Deaf or Hard of Hearing). I am willing to use either English or American Sign Language as the primary language in which to tutor, depending on the needs of the student.

I tutor from my home in Troy, Ohio or online!

Grammar

Grammar

Some might call me a "grammar nerd", as I am very in tune to correct language structure (and therefore grammatical errors). I enjoy using fun tools, songs, and resources to teach students correct grammar!

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher and taught at the elementary level for a few years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. I enjoy working with the young students and helping them reach their full potential through fun and creative learning activities.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

As a teacher, math was one of my favorite subjects to teach because of the hands-on nature of it. I enjoy choosing hands-on activities and learning tools based on my student's favorite things (animals, foods, cartoon characters, etc.) that will spark their interest, thereby turning "math time" into "fun time"! They learn without even realizing they are learning.

Spelling,

Spelling

Spelling is one of the trickiest parts of the English language. However, there are tricks to learn the spelling of some words. I enjoy teaching students to use word families, "rhyming rules" (such as "i before e except after c"), and more in creative ways so they can learn to spell words correctly!
Vocabulary,

Vocabulary

I love words - learning about them, their history, and how to apply them. I love to find creative ways to help students make associations in the brain between new words and old words, compare synonyms and antonyms, find root words to figure out meanings, and simply enjoy increasing their vocabulary (and thereby impressing others with their exceptional word usage!)

Very patient and encouraging!

Rachel tutored my 14 year old son in Language Arts, she was so patient and encouraging with him. She is very soft spoken and sweet. Her kind of demeanor was extremely helpful for my son due to his anxiety. I would recommended Rachel as a tutor to anyone who asked!

Great Tutor

We are very pleased with Rachel, there has been a significant improvement in our son's reading in just the 3 sessions. She communicates well with Jesse and is patient. She also works closely with his teacher and supports her lesson plans.
