About Rebecca


Bio

I love teaching science because I absolutely love science, especially biology. I think it's the coolest thing ever, and if you asked my students they would say my enthusiasm is contagious! I try to make learning it fun by engaging a student's natural curiosity. Science is all around us, and I teach by relating abstract concepts to things we can experience every day. I will work with your child in her own learning style to help her reach maximum potential.

I love teaching science because I absolutely love science, especially biology. I think it's the coolest thing ever, and if you asked my students they would say my enthusiasm is contagious! I try to make learning it fun by engaging a student's natural curiosity. Science is all around us, and I teach by relating abstract concepts to things we can experience every day. I will work with your child in her own learning style to help her reach maximum potential.

I have tutored students at the high school, college, and graduate levels. As a high school biology teacher and a biological research scientist I have both a broad and deep understanding of science content and process as well as teaching training. It is one thing to understand, but an entirely different thing to be able to make someone else understand, and I am able to do both.

I have six years of experience in biomedical research at Bucknell, Johns Hopkins Medical Institute, and Vanderbilt. Through conducting research, I have developed strong critical thinking skills and the ability for creative problem solving. Biology is not just about learning facts but about learning how to think independently and ask questions.

In addition to my research experience, I am a licensed teacher in biology and chemistry and I have taught AP biology and honors biology for the last 3 years Summit High School. As the AP biology teacher, I helped my students achieve the highest pass rate and highest percentage of 4's and 5's in the county. My students also had above average growth on the TN State Biology End of Course exam.

I have a Master's of Science degree in biological sciences from Vanderbilt University and a bachelor's of science in cell biology/biochemistry from Bucknell University. I have six years of experience as a college teaching assistant for biology lab classes where I had a proven track record of helping my students succeed.

Biology

I absolutely love biology and getting to share it with others is such a great joy. I can work with you to help you learn the concepts in the way that you like to learn. Biology is all about making connections between ideas, and that's where a lot of students tend to struggle, but I have strategies that can address that. I am a licensed biology teacher and former research biologist. I have taught freshman biology honors (last year I had the highest growth in my department) and AP biology (last year I had the highest pass rate in my county). I was a cell biology/biochemistry major and I have a Master's degree in biological sciences from Vanderbilt University. As part of my course work I have taken classes in topics in every area of Biology. I have worked as a biomedical researcher at Vanderbilt, Johns Hopkins, and Bucknell University for a total of six years. I have an intimate understanding of biology concepts as well as the techniques used in the study of biology.

I taught the ACT prep class math and science sections for two years at Summit High School. I can help you develop your own personal strategy to maximize your time and attack those science passages. The ACT science section is an exercise in reading and analyzing text and figures very quickly so time management and efficiency can be key. I am a licensed teacher in biology and chemistry 6-12.
Biochemistry,

Biochemistry

I absolutely love biochemistry! It is one of my favorite areas of science and I would love to help you with it. We can work on your problem sets and I can break down any concepts you are struggling with. I am a certified teacher in biology and chemistry and I taught AP and honors biology for the last 3 years. I also have experience tutoring and teaching at the college level. I was a cell biology/biochemistry major and I have a master's degree in biology from Vanderbilt. My undergraduate coursework focused specifically on biochemistry, and it is a passion of mine. I have also worked as a biomedical researcher at Vanderbilt, Johns Hopkins, and Bucknell University for a total of six years. I have an intimate understanding of biochemistry concepts as well as the techniques used in the study of biochemistry.

Very helpful and knowledgeable

My daughter's AP Bio teacher isn't very organized and it shows in the test grades of the entire class. Rebecca is a much-needed supplement to my daughter's high school classes. She has been terrific in helping my daughter grasp the content in an organized and logical way.

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

Rebecca teaches biology to my 10th grader. My child is happy and satisfied with the teacher and is better confident to score well while continually getting support from Rebecca.

ACT -Science section

Rebecca is a fabulous tutor! My daughter met online with Rebecca for 3 - 1 hour session to prepare for ACT Science. From the beginning my daughter said that Rebecca is really helping her. We just got ACT scores back today, and my daughter’s ACT Science score went up by 3 points! This 3 points will get her in her dream school! Not only was she very accommodating in terms of scheduling, but she was very good during the lessons about budgeting time. Rebecca did not tutor my daughter in Reading section but her tips on time management helped my daughter increase the reading score as well.

Great teacher

Rebecca really helped me today to understand a lot of the conceptual (and detail info) on myoglobin and hemoglobin while examining P50 graphs and their values. She’s very kind and patient and very receptive to questions or reexplaining something if I don’t understand the first time around.

Knowledgeable and insightful tutor.

Rebecca helped me work through the first half of my medical biochemistry course, giving me a much better understanding of how all the cycles tie together (and work independently). With her help, I was able to pass my mid-term retake!! I'll be using her guidance through the remainder of this semester.

A fantastic tutor - knowledgeable, patient and skilled

Rebecca has been tutoring our son in Honors Biology for over 6 months. She is exceptional with regard to her ability to work with gifted learners in advanced classes. She is able to meet our son's curiosity in a way that deepens his understanding of the material while keeping him on task with the classroom materials. She is skilled in helping the student identify where they are already strong and where they need to grow. She is always on time for lessons and provides good summaries of lessons. Recorded lessons allow our son to go back and listen to any topics he needs clarification on. We feel incredibly lucky to have found Rebecca. She raises the bar when it comes to skilled tutoring! Thank you, Rebecca!
