About Rebecca

Teaching students to love to learn has always been a passion of mine. I am currently a Senior at St. Mary's University, seeking a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in English Language Arts. With a GPA of a 3.4, and involvement in several university organizations, I have learned several methods to learn how to retain important information.

Throughout my time in the Education program, I have had the opportunity to tutor elementary students in subjects such as Reading, Writing, and some Math. Through the Education program, I have been required to not only tutor several students, but to also teach class when allowed. As a student teacher, I believe that I have several innovative ways to keep the student engaged and help them to improve in the necessary area.

Spanish was my first language. Both of my parents are Spanish speakers and decided that they would teach us Spanish as toddlers because they figured it would be beneficial in our futures. I am fluent in reading, writing, and speaking the Spanish language and I am capable to teaching others understand the language as well. I recently took the CLEP exam, a college board exam that allows college students to gain college credits and I was able to score a 78, a score that allowed me to be credited with 12 college hours.

I have been exposed to the English language since I was 4 years old. Throughout high school, I was enrolled in AP (advanced placement) courses that allowed me the opportunity to perfect my English, grammar, and proofreading skills through several Writer's workshops and seminars.

I am finishing up my last semester as an undergraduate and I have had exposure to the common core, as well as ways to help students become engaged in a lesson and most importantly helping them retain that information.

I am eager to help as many students as possible to learn to love to learn, so please feel free to contact me for more information to help you become the best you that you can be!

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.

Common Core

I am currently a Senior at St. Mary's University, hoping to receive certification in EC-6th grade. I have recently passed the Generalist EC-6 exam and I am currently a student teacher at Boldt Elementary. Throughout my years at St. Mary's University, I have been given the opportunity to tutor several elementary students in Reading, Writing, and some Math. I have tutored students in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. I have also been given the opportunity to teach about 6-8 lessons to a group of students at Ball Elementary.
