Former High School Math Teacher
Hi, I'm Rebecca! I graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematical Science in 2004. Once I began to teach, it was obvious to me that this is what I was meant to do! I taught in a classroom setting for 13 years teaching Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Algebraic Reasoning and Geometry. I also facilitated a College Algebra class through my local high school as the co-instructor and I taught a remedial College Algebra class at a local community college. My love...
Hi, I'm Rebecca! I graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematical Science in 2004. Once I began to teach, it was obvious to me that this is what I was meant to do! I taught in a classroom setting for 13 years teaching Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Algebraic Reasoning and Geometry. I also facilitated a College Algebra class through my local high school as the co-instructor and I taught a remedial College Algebra class at a local community college. My love for math is always noticed by my students. I try to teach with energy and excitement! I really want to strive to change the mindset of Mathematics and make my students see that they can also have fun learning math!
My teaching style is to listen to the student to gauge their understanding and then walk them through that concept with examples. I like to give them ways to remember the concept so it will stick with them. I have the ability to break down difficult concepts into manageable chunks to make it easier for the student to grasp and retain. I want to help as much as possible so please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. I am easy to reach and super flexible. I will respond as quickly as possible! I look forward to working with you!
My daughter feels more confident
After one session, my daughter feels more confident in algebra. We will be doing another tutor session in the next few days. Looking forward to working with Rebecca to help my daughter be successful.Coleen, 6 lessons with Rebecca
Algebra tutor kudos
Responsive and easy to get in touch with. She uses the Wyzant platform, no need to install Skype or other similar programs. My 15 year old son says, "Nice, skilled, attentive and accommodating." Mom says, "We'll be back!"Dru, 3 lessons with Rebecca
Very patient tutor
The Pre Calculus grades went up for my daughter after having few sessions with Rebecca. She is knowledgeable with the subject and patient when helping understand the concepts. Highly recommend.Shreya, 5 lessons with Rebecca
Rebecca is patient and kind and so helpful! She is great at communication and very flexible. She understands. The PSAT was easier and less stressful after a few sessions with Rebecca - thank you!Lisa, 8 lessons with Rebecca
Amazing and very patient
My daughter is learning precalc and is already feeling super confident for her test today. She was able to give my daughter tips and tricks to tackle the problem. And also had given her some formulas to memorize and my daughter feels way better walking in today for her test. Thank you Rebecca !Shwetha, 9 lessons with Rebecca
Rebecca was amazing with my daughter. She was kind, patient and very experienced in tutoring. My daughter left feeling like she totally understands the concepts better than she ever has. We will definitely be using her again!Bridgett, 4 lessons with Rebecca

Knowledgeable and clear explanation
Rebecca was able to provide a trigonometry lesson on a very short notice. She took time to review the material to provide the best lesson experience and was very personable. Asked right questions and made sure the approach was clear and helpful. Thanks!AK, 1 lesson with Rebecca
Thanks Rebecca for a very helpful session.
Rebecca goes the extra mile to explain the algebra problems in a meaningful way. She is thoughtful and well prepared. I would recommend her tutoring to any student.Carolyn, 23 lessons with Rebecca
Completely recommend Rebecca. She’s very patient and takes her time to explain. She’s also very funny and made math actually fun! Literally an hour before having Rebecca tutor me I was on the phone with my school counselor talking about dropping my math class. My college professor is terrible with explaining. Even getting stuff wrong on the board. But with Rebecca’s way of teaching I feel like I have a fighting chance to pass my class! I’m looking forward to our upcoming sessions!Crystal, 3 lessons with Rebecca
