About Becca

Hi! I'm Becca.

I've taught middle school for the past 8 years and I am certified to teach grades 6-12 in ALL social studies. I have experience tutoring elementary children in math and reading. I have a Master's of Teaching degree from James Madison University.

As a teacher, I believe focused learning and practice helps students master content quickly. While I am not personally a fan of homework in my classroom, I do believe students need to study and practice to succeed. I believe that when students "play" with the material, they are able to master the information and concepts more effectively.

I am able to help with test taking strategies, organization skills, essay coaching, and homework in general. I believe no one student is alike. I approach tutoring from an individualized style - catering to the needs of the student based on unique skills, interests, and personality. I work with the student to set realistic goals and to provide a motivation and rewards system to encourage successful completion of goals.

Teaching is my passion and watching the "light-bulb" moments make it all worthwhile!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have many years of experience teaching people with ADD/ADHD in a team taught special education classroom setting. Most of the time, a setting change and/or activity change will help the student grasp the concept.

American History

I love HISTORY! The relationships between cause and effect are key to understanding how the world works.

Economics

I am a Civics teacher. What is Civics, you ask? Government and Economics!

Geography

A personal passion of mine is traveling; which goes hand-in-hand with geography! Flags, capitals, countries, and maps - I love to turn studying geography into a fun game!

Government & Politics

I am a Civics teacher and Government & Politics is the emphasis of my course. I also took several classes in college about International Government, as I double majored in Education and International Affairs.

Grammar

There are no if's, and's, or but's about it; in the Age of Technology, grammar is key to a good first impression!

First lesson — Hi Becca! Thank you for accepted my son as your student. I hope he will feel comfortable to work with you with long term relationship. Right now, I would like him to improve in writing such as: using verbs correctly, spelling that he has big issue. I know you will evaluate him more with next few lessons and let me know what you think about him. Again, thank you for your time. See you on Tuesday ...
