About Rachel

An Environmental Science graduate from Willamette University, I love learning and working with students. I've organized and taught hands-on science curricula to talented and gifted middle school students, I have tutored elementary-age kids in the Salem school district, and I have experience volunteering in Jericho and Underhill elementary schools as a classroom assistant, as well as working with the Jericho Town Library on summer literacy programs. Most recently, I worked as a university language liaison, connecting international students, domestic students and professors. As a result, I am comfortable working across a wide age range, from elementary-age to early college-age students. I love working with kids to open new doors to learning, whether it be in language, reading, social sciences or the natural world.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I've worked with students with learning differences in the classroom, at summer camps, and in one-on-one tutoring situations. I have the most experience working with students of this type between elementary and middle school ages. I understand that it can take more effort to work to fit this type of learner, and I understand that challenge!

General Computer

I am experienced with both PC and Mac computers. I work with them both on a regular basis, and would be happy to work with you on yours!

Reading

I love reading, and have extensive experience working with students of different ages on this subject. I've spearheaded literacy programs with the Jericho Town Library, and also volunteer with elementary school students with reading in the classroom. I've worked with early and late-age readers, and I understand that kids come to reading at their own rates. For older students, such as high-schoolers, I can offer assistance at becoming a faster and more proficient reader. For beginning readers, I can provide the enthusiasm and patience necessary to master this important skill. I've worked with kids of different abilities, including those on the Autism spectrum, so I am experienced with different learning styles.

Study Skills

I've worked with students over a variety of age groups and learning styles, and practiced fine-tuning which study habits are most helpful for different students. In the past year of tutoring alone, all of my tutoring sessions contained at least a 15-minute section on how to continue the subject at home, from putting together study calendars and working on discrete sections of work for an Autistic student, to putting together long range accomplishment plans for more self-directed students. I also have a year's experience working on organization with middle school students via an afterschool program.

Writing

I worked for my college newspaper for four years, and am currently employed in a writing-intensive field. I work with students on their level, whether that be learning to grasp the basics, or polishing writing for professional purposes.

Very pleased with progress so far — Rachel has been providing valuable instruction, feedback, and advice to our daughter both during and after her first two tutoring sessions. She seems to be very analytical, evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of her testing skills. The quality and quantity of her instruction and coaching have been what we were looking for. ...
