About Becky


Bio

My approach is to be quick to encourage and to provide explanations, practice, support, and appropriate challenges for your student. I have 10 great years of tutoring experience (two years private school teaching experience), but I'm still young enough for your child not to tune out my advice. I have taught and tutored over 200 students.

My approach is to be quick to encourage and to provide explanations, practice, support, and appropriate challenges for your student. I have 10 great years of tutoring experience (two years private school teaching experience), but I'm still young enough for your child not to tune out my advice. I have taught and tutored over 200 students.

I have worked with many students who felt that their teachers did not care about their progress, but I have always had a personal approach with special attention to test dates and material. That supportive strategy has allowed me to see steady growth in the grades and dispositions of my students. I never pressure students; I always encourage them. Confidence is a major factor in tackling math problems, so I always work on that quality in conjunction with the material. I'm funny and easy going and will not make your student feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, or confused at any time.

I helped a sweet teenage girl with low processing skills go from an F to a B in geometry within four months. I also taught a senior with anxiety how to tackle the ACT for the third time. He earned the score he needed and got into the university of his choice after eight sessions with me.

I taught in the classroom for two years at a private school, I majored in math, and I have worked for locally and nationally known tutoring companies with children in third grade up to adults going back to college. I have experience with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, and more. I am very comfortable with each individual student. I can quickly discover where they are in the material and their learning speed. And I can even make up problems on the spot for extra practice.

I also have a passion for English and enjoy vocabulary and writing. I use these skills to prepare students for the SAT, ACT, GRE, etc. I have published a couple of magazine articles, and I have aspirations of writing a book as well.

I hope you do not settle for a teacher with a rigid nature. Enthusiasm is contagious! I would be honored to share mine wi

As a math tutor for years, I have often been asked to conduct reviews for history, science, English, foreign language, and test preparation upon finishing a homework help session. Formerly a straight A high school student, I have comfortably become reacquainted with a variety of subjects through self study. I have taught and tutored approximately 150 students, many of whom needed help getting organized with their workload.

As a math Major with a Bachelors degree, I dealt in depth with many Discrete Math concepts. I became proficient in proofs with logic and set theory in my college level course on Logic. I tackled many discrete series in Calculus II and III, and in other classes I dealt with binary operations, relation and function analysis and composition, modular arithmetic, induction, and groups. Lastly, my two college-level Probability and Statistics courses and actuarial exam experience have helped me greatly grasp concepts of combinatorics and concepts modeled in Discrete Math courses.

I have been a runner for 12 years. Since then, I have not only undertaken 19 marathons-or-longer, but I have also learned a thing or two about healthy eating from my father, a Certified Nutrition Specialist, author, dentist, and Health Science Professor. I have been through the intense fitness and strength program, P90X, multiple times, and completed mountain bike races, and a triathlon event including kayaking. I have directed races and am currently working one-on-one with five women on their various levels of fitness and speed.

best math teacher!

Becky is an amazing math teacher. She works wonders with my daughter and brings the best out of her. My daughter works without being prompted and takes each session seriously with Becky because she sees her own achievements.

worth every penny and worth every minutes

Mrs. Becky is an amazing math teacher. We started last school year because my daughter was tanking in her pre-calc class. Mrs. Becky walked her through the class materials and my daughter's final math grade was 95. We are continuing the lessons for SAT math and Mrs. Becky is showing my daughter the ins and out ofbexam prep. I am looking forward to see how much my progress daughter will make during this summer.

Great teacher!

Becky helped me so much in preparing for the GRE! She helped me mainly with my quantitative section, but also with vocab. She has made me feel much more confident going into the test!

Madison, 7 lessons with Becky

Wonderful tutor.

She has been working with my daughter. My daughter enjoys working with her and she is doing a lot of better in school. Becky is able to help with my daughter by pin-pointing the areas she is not getting and make sure she gets it. She also gives my daughter worksheets that she can do to get familiarized the problems. She is also very considerate and flexible to the needs of the student.

Online tutoring experience was great!

Our daughter continues to be encouraged and looks forward to meeting with Becky. We tried the online collaboration this time and things went very smoothly. Will definitely be continuing with this option.

Nice and understanding

She is very nice and comforting. She is not demanding and worked side by side with me. It was very easy to understand, I definitely recommend her.

Mary, 5 lessons with Becky

Knowledgeable

This was our first lesson with Becky and my son really enjoyed how she approached him with his math problem she was really easy going and very thoughtful and nice and considerate and seem to be really smart and knowledgeable about her field we're definitely keeping Becky and if anybody reads this you need to get her to tutor your child because I believe she's going to be a heck of a tutor for my Charlie.

Charlie, 13 lessons with Becky

A great experience!

Becky has been a blessing for my daughter. We found Becky late in the semester, but she was still able to help my daughter bring her grade up quite a bit. Becky was patient, kind and very easy for my daughter to communicate with. She makes the kids feel relaxed which is very important for a student, tutor relationship. I would not hesitate to use her again!

Sara, 4 lessons with Becky

Goes above and beyond the average tutor!

Becky tutored me for the GRE writing portions. She was absolutely the perfect fit for the job! She was easy to communicate with, punctual, and knowledgeable! She not only did what I asked but she also evaluated my situation and was able to offer skills, exercises, and information that I hadn't even thought about. She went above and beyond the job description. I would highly recommend her for any student!
