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.
In addition to her experience as at tutor, Rebecca has extensive experience as a classroom teacher working with a wide variety of student populations. And as a Junior Writing Fellow at the Boston University Writing Center, Rebecca coached undergraduates on their academic writing. Rebecca also taught a full immersion (no English) Indonesian language class for the MIT Balinese Gamelan program in preparation for their Indonesian concert tour.
Rebecca taught Kaplan SAT prep classes for both the math and verbal sections of the SAT at schools throughout the Boston area, including Boston Latin Acacemy, Boston College High School, and MATCH Academy. She also led GRE, LSAT, and TOEFL prep classes for adults. Because of her outstanding skills as a classroom teacher, Rebecca was selected to be a Kaplan teacher trainer, and prepared new teachers for the classroom as well as deciding which candidates would become teachers.
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. Rebecca went on to complete her graduate degree in cello performance. 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.
