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.

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.

Helpful

Rebecca was a very helpful tutor who provided information on both content and application. She also had a supply of charts and infographics ready for whenever visual assistance is needed.

Melody, 7 lessons with Rebecca

Very knowledgeable.

Great patience, and willing to be flexible. She was up front on information she knew well and also topics she needed to review. I highly recommend her for any student needing help with biology topics.

Manuel, 8 lessons with Rebecca

Focused and dedicated Biology Teacher

Many tutors claim they can tutor many subjects from social sciences to natural sciences subjects, the reality is there’s no way to be great on everything. Rebecca is simply the top Biology teacher you can rely on for your children’s studies in Biological Science including AP Biology.

Andrew, 11 lessons with Rebecca

AP Biology

My daughter appreciated the explanations that Rebecca provided on her first lesson and is looking forward to working with Rebecca on her AP Biology course work this year.

Janet, 10 lessons with Rebecca

Knowledgeable and Reliable

Rebecca taught my son before his freshman Biology Honors exam. She was very responsive, not only in terms of the speed to respond but also to various requests I made. She is a very knowledgeable teacher. My son enjoyed and benefited from her classes.

Yang, 2 lessons with Rebecca

Warm and extremely helpful

I chose Rebecca based on her experience and enthusiasm. Rebecca listened to my concerns about the areas where my student needs the most reinforcement and she spent time focusing on those areas.

Lisa, 10 lessons with Rebecca

Knowledgeable and helpful AP Biology tutor

Rebecca has been working with my daughter to help her with her AP Biology class. She has been very accommodating and she is great with helping my daughter understand the material better. She provides updates to the parents on what was covered each session and also sends a recording of the session. I highly recommend working with her.

Lori, 27 lessons with Rebecca

So helpful with material and study tips

Rebecca gave me ideas on new ways to study and explained biochemistry in ways that I actually understood! Would definitely reach out again for future courses

Sara, 5 lessons with Rebecca
