About Rachel

I have been teaching for six years in the areas of Health and English. I have worked with student of all ages and abilities. Part of being an effective student is knowing where you are, where you want to be, and how to get there. I have taught swimming, water aerobics, fitness, and healthy eating. I have lived in Indonesia teaching English as a Second Language. Currently I work with college students helping them with their writing, and a a cello teacher for mixed populations. I believe that to be a good teacher you have to be a good student, which is why I have continued to learn even after completing my traditional education. I study Indonesian, Spanish, Yoga, and Cello performance. I have spent years learning how to be an effective student, and I will help you do the same!
