About Rebecca

Hello! I am an experienced elementary school teacher, with 11 years of teaching experience. I received my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education in 2003 from the University of Southern Indiana. I have taught Kindergarten, first grade, and currently teach second grade in the Metro Nashville Public School system.

The best part about teaching and tutoring is seeing a child's eyes light up when he/she finally understands something that has been challenging. I love seeing students master skills they didn't think they could!

I have taught elementary math for 11 years to young children, therefore I understand the need for concrete manipulatives in understanding mathematical concepts. It's important to start with concrete, simple concepts and build on those so students have a firm understanding of one skill before building on to that knowledge.

Using the Common Core standards as an elementary teacher, I have experience teaching the standards in a way that require students to describe their thinking and justify why they think what they do. This is so important in building critical thinking skills, not just memorizing facts in a textbook!

I have experience teaching 5-6 year olds how to write letters properly and also teaching cursive to older students.

As a kindergarten and first grade teacher, I have experience teaching children the building blocks of reading, and phonics is a huge part of that! I have used Wilson Fundations, a phonics program, in the classroom.

I am excited to work with students and watch them grow while having fun! Please contact me to discuss the opportunities in reaching your goals!
