My name is Rachel and I graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelors of Science in nutritional sciences. I am currently completing a pre-medical post-baccalaureate with plans to attend medical school in 2017. I have 6 years of tutoring experience in various subjects, primarily high school and college level science courses and standardized test preparation. I have a knack for taking seemingly complicated problems and translating them into easy to understand solutions. I like to cater my teaching methods in accordance to my student's learning style so information is better understood and retained. I also like to make learning fun!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Every student learns in his or her own way. It is important to understand how a student learns most effectively, and to use a teaching method that parallels that particular learning style.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Understand what they hope to accomplish in our tutoring session, and assess their strengths and weaknesses in accomplishing that goal.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By teaching them all the tips, tricks, and techniques I've picked up over the years that have personally helped me become a better learner.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

By presenting the same material in different ways.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

By relating the material to a topic they are interested in.
