About Rachel

I recently graduated with my bachelor's degree in child development. I have years of experience working with children and genuinely love it! I worked at an elementary school for over a year while I was finishing my degree. I taught in the preschool lab at my university for my degree practicum. I also taught English in Kiev, Ukraine for six months through an English immersion program. I have years of experience working as a nanny and as a volunteer teaching children at my church. I believe in teaching children with patience and kindness. I think it's important to individualize lesson to each specific child and to be very aware of each child's specific needs and goals. I genuinely care about doing my best and in teaching creatively and effectively. I love tutoring because I enjoy building relationships with the children I teach and I find it very rewarding to watch them making progress.

I have tutored elementary school students in English. I volunteered teaching English through an immersion program in Ukraine for six months. I also volunteered as an ESL tutor to other students at my university who were learning English as a second language between 2012 and 2015.

I worked at an elementary school from September 2014 to December 2015 and really focused on literacy development with the kindergarteners, however I worked with children in the other grades as well.

Please feel free to contact me any time. I would be happy to answer any questions and discuss my schedule. I would love to learn more about your child's goals and see if I can help achieve them. Hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Autism

I have a bachelor's degree in child development. As part of my degree, I took classes about special needs and learned a lot about Autism Spectrum Disorders, including Aspergers. I also have experience working with children with autism as both a nanny, at the elementary school where I worked, and in the preschool lab at my university.

Cello

I have played the cello since I was 8 years old (about 16 years total). I took private lessons from the time I was 8 and through college. I played in orchestras - Metropolitan Youth Symphony and Portland Youth Philharmonic, both in Portland, Oregon where I grew up. I also played in the Symphony Orchestra at BYU-Idaho.

Handwriting

I have a bachelor's degree in child development. I worked at an elementary school for over a year and helped children with handwriting, especially kindergarteners. I also worked on handwriting skills with children while I worked in the preschool lab at my university.

Phonics

I have a bachelor's degree in child development. As part of my degree, I learned about teaching phonics. I took specific classes on it, such as a class called "Language, Literacy, and Learning". I worked at an elementary school where I spent a lot of time in the kindergarten classroom working on phonics and literacy development.
