About Rebecca

I am certified to teach K-12 composite Social Studies (Geography, History, Economics, Government)and ESL (English as a Second Language). I have a B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin. I have had 14 years of experience as a public school social studies teacher. I have taught 6th, 7th & 8th grade social studies classes. Additionally, I have taught high school world geography and U.S. government. I have also had many years teaching ESL as a part-time tutor (through Houston Community College and various private language schools). I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults alike. I am easy-going, but also serious and very dedicated to my profession. I am competent, experienced, and always prepared with interesting lessons. I like to use a combination of teaching strategies, depending on the learner's style. I think learning should be an enjoyable and natural experience for both the teacher and student.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Reading

I taught students whose primary language was not English for sixteen years. I taught social studies (which relies heavily on an ability to comprehend English) in a public school, as well as ten years of after-school ESL tutoring. I love to teach and would appreciate an opportunity to meet you and your child.

Social Studies

I am certified by the state of Texas to teach all grade-levels of social studies- 6th-12th grades. I have had public school experience teaching World Cultures, Texas History, U.S. History, World Geography, and U.S. Government.
