About Rebecca

I am a recent graduate from Tidewater Community College earning my A.S. in sciences and am currently studying at Bluefield College majoring in Biology, and minoring in Chemistry, with a concentration in pre-medicine.

I am a former math and English tutor for early learners at Kumon, as well as an English, and biology tutor for Tidewater Community College. My main goal as a tutor is to engage students and help cultivate the needed skills to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. Most importantly, I allow the student to have control of the process. I am a strong advocate of and encourage, independent learning.

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.

Biology

I have taken numerous biology and biology related courses including but not limited to; Biology 101 and 102, Genetics, Molecular Biology, and Zoology. Biology is not just my major, but my passion. I am completely in love with studying biology and am so excited to share my love for this subject with other students.

The study of English grammar is essential to good writing and speaking well. Rules for Elementary English Grammar include but are not limited to: Rules governing the use of the subject, verb and object in a sentence, the correct use of adjectives and adverbs, the use of abbreviations and implied meanings, and the use of punctuation, etc.

Proofreading

There is no substitute for carefully re-reading one’s own work. Even if someone else has looked for mistakes, the writer best knows what is being said.

With this in mind I give tools and strategies to improve your proofreading skills.

Very Informative & Enthusiastic — My first tutoring session with Rebecca was great. She corrected me by pointing out errors that I did and informed me of what I was doing wrong and what I need to work on. Her demeanor during the tutoring session was very up beat and enthusiastic and it helped motivate me and made me want to learn more. ...
