In one-on-one math tutoring, Rebecca teaches kids from around the world how to master the material, increase their confidence, and pull up their grades, while struggling less and having more fun.
Many students who come to Rebecca because they are failing math routinely raise their grades to A’s and B’s over the course of a semester because of her positive, interactive, and extremely individualized approach.
Rebecca has successfully tutored students with many different learning styles, including kinesthetic, auditory, and visual learners, as well as students with dyslexia, spatial disabilities, Turner’s, ADHD, and students with Individualized Learning Plans.

Rebecca received a full tuition scholarship to attend Boston University and graduated summa cum laude with a self-designed interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts in Music and Humanities.
For her senior thesis project, she traveled to Cuba to direct and produce an original documentary about female bata drummers in Havana.
With MIT’s Balinese Gamelan (Indonesian percussion orchestra), Rebecca toured Bali as a performer, collaborated with Balinese musicians and dancers, and led performances of a piece she wrote herself.

Immersing herself in different musical styles, each with its own unique way of imparting knowledge, has given Rebecca great appreciation for many different ways of teaching and learning.
Rebecca is an avid Anusara Yoga practitioner and recently completed an 108-hour yoga immersion. One of her favorite poses is pigeon. She also loves baking chocolate chip ricotta muffins.
