Here to Help You Learn
Hi, my name is Rachel, and I love to help students understand what they're learning in school. As a graduate of Biola University, I have found myself in a position to help students with what they do not understand. While at college, I spent some of my free time (when not working at the campus bookstore and doing my own homework) tutoring students in the local community. Since then, I have had the opportunity to regularly help students both with their homework and to help them learn concepts...
Hi, my name is Rachel, and I love to help students understand what they're learning in school. As a graduate of Biola University, I have found myself in a position to help students with what they do not understand. While at college, I spent some of my free time (when not working at the campus bookstore and doing my own homework) tutoring students in the local community. Since then, I have had the opportunity to regularly help students both with their homework and to help them learn concepts that they will soon by encountering in their classes.
While this may seem unusual to current students, I loved learning in my classes, and I want to be able to pass on my knowledge to those who need a little bit of extra help. Additionally, that would give me a chance to keep using what I learned in school so that I don't forget it! As such, I would love to help explain concepts to students so that they can understand what's going on in class, in addition to helping them do their homework. My strongest areas are math, especially pre-algebra, algebra and geometry, and English. In regards to math, I love working with numbers and figuring out how to solve problems to get the right answer. On that note, basic chemistry is also an area in which I excel since it is so math-based. As far as English goes, I'm what some people may refer to as a "grammar zealot," and I am therefore more than proficient at editing papers that students plan on turning in to their classes to improve the sound and quality of their writing.
At this point in time, my schedule is fairly flexible. If you are looking for someone to help you or your child understand difficult concepts, please feel free to get in touch with me so that we can work out a time to meet.

We have had an amazing experience with Rachel. I highly recommend her for tutoring. She is punctual, reliable, patient, and overall wonderful!Adrienne, 20 lessons with Rachel
Rachel is very effective in getting my son up to speed with understanding algebra. My son had tried online tutoring in the past, but he has now found working one-on-one with Rachel fits much better to his learning style. John PJohn, 6 lessons with Rachel
Very patient and encouraging tutor
My daughter had a lesson with Rachel for math. I was completely unable to understand her graphing math homework but Rachel managed to help her solve the problems correctly with ease. I’ve never seen my daughter so engaged in math homework. She seemed excited to learn and responded very well to Rachel’s teaching style. We will definitely be scheduling more lessons soon!Malinda, 1 lesson with Rachel
Rachel was very good at discussing errors and helping to find a "short cut" or perhaps easier method for getting to the answer than what my daughter was doing. Rachel is a very calm teacher which helped reduce my daughters anxiety.Brenda, 5 lessons with Rachel

Rachel was wonderful at helping my daughter get through an online Algebra 2 class. She was flexible with what we needed and my daughter enjoyed working with her. We are so grateful for her help.Perrin, 6 lessons with Rachel
Excellent teacher, patient and explains thing well
My son had his first session with Rachel today and it went great! She was patient with him and really helped him understand how to work the math problems. He really enjoyed the session and was able to complete his homework as well as a late assignment that he didn’t know how to complete prior to meeting with Rachel. He has another session booked in a couple of days and is looking forward to it.Kimberly , 15 lessons with Rachel
