About Rebecca

Hello! I am a mother, tutor, teacher, and a history enthusiast. I am currently working as a tutor both in Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon through the school's systems and I love tutoring. I also substitute teach multiple grades and subjects for Portland Public School District.

I think that tutoring is an important tool to help students excel and succeed with their education. Tutoring allows me to assess exactly where students struggle in their academics. In History and social studies students may struggle retaining information, lack study skills, or may struggle with the argumentative writing process or in understanding complex historical events.

I am a certified teacher who recently graduated--this shows that my skills as a teacher and tutor are updated and effective. I also love the field of education, and I have a passion for history and social studies. My thesis topic was on Ancient Rome, but I am knowledgeable about American History, Ancient China, Medieval Europe, and ancient World History.

Since I am not only a history major, but also a certified social studies teacher, I am also knowledgeable regarding high school level Sociology, Psychology, and other social studies topics.

In addition to my education, I also have kids of my own and a lot of experience working with children and adolescents of all ages. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. Thank you for your time.

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.

Political Science

I am a certified Social Studies teacher who has passed the Praxis II test, which includes questions covering the subtopic of political science. I have also taken modern political science and American Government classes during college. I am also an active participant in the political system in the U.S. as an informed voter and volunteer.

I am a certified Social studies teacher in the states of Oregon and Colorado with a BA in History. I passed the Praxis II test covering social studies. This test includes topics ranging from geography, political science, sociology, psychology, and world history. I took several sociology and psychology related classes in college as well as many history courses.
