About Becky D.

Close

The term math is a very broad term covering all math from basic counting through more advanced topics such as statistics, calculus, geometry, algebra and more. I teach all math topics through Algebra I. Algebra I is generally taught in middle school or the first year of high-school. Common to all topics in math is that I use manipulative. Math is an abstract concept. Using visual objects that can also be held and touched makes math easier to understand.

About Becky
Hi!

I'm an online certified teacher and private tutor. My personal goal is to foster academic success in the student in your life. In addition, I strive to teach the necessary skills for every one of my students to become independent learners.

From reading comprehension and algebra to study skills and English, my mission is to tutor students who have fallen through the cracks in our educational system. Meeting my clients’ specialized needs is an essential part of each lesson I create.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education (emphasis on reading and reading comprehension) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education. My teaching experience includes 33+ years of tutoring, 10 years in the public school system teaching first grade, 10 years in both the public school system and private schools teaching music and 1 year at S
outhwestern Illinois College (SWIC) teaching basic computer use.

Chase was way behind reading in the first grade. It was becoming a serious problem as Chase grew to hate school. That is, until Miss Becky came to help.

Mother, father, teachers, and grandparents all tried to help. But none of us could get to him…he completely shut down. His tears and frustration were heartbreaking for all of us.

In three months of lessons with Chase and coaching for the adults (we changed our approach entirely), Chase not only caught up with first grade reading, but was more than ready for the second grade.

As Chase entered the second grade, we continued lessons with Miss Becky to ensure that Chase did not fall behind. He did very well that school year...what a huge difference from the previous year! He got to the point where he could read everything in front of him. The entire family was elated, especially Chase! Now he could read and understand vocabulary words that were one and two grades ahead of him. As he enters the third grade, reading is no longer a nightmare!!

With Miss Becky's academic knowledge and her very special approach to teaching children, she has made one boy and his family very happy!

Thank you, Miss Becky, from the very bottom of all of our hearts!

Becky helped my children immensely! She was able to assess their knowledge base, highlight areas that required improvement and fine tune those areas they were doing well in. She was engaging, encouraging, organized, clear and concise with her teachings, which resulted in enormous growth. We highly recommend Becky and can not thank her enough for her dedication and fun teaching methods.

I like to bring a sense of humor along to take the edge off math and help "I hate math!" students. I also break down hard-to-understand concepts into easier steps. I've taught hundreds of students everything from basic math to the Quadratic Formula!

About Scott
Hi, everyone! Do you want your student to improve in math? Does your student need someone to help with developing writing or grammar or reading skills? Would you like your student to be able to throw a football 75 yards in the air?

If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, I can help! (Except for the one about the football; maybe your student should try pumping iron or something.)

I've worked with kids in math and English for many years, including my own (my wife and I have four graduates), and I enjoy making subjects fun and interesting with students, while we get the job done.

Some valuable learning, a pat on the back, and a shot of confidence: that's what I offer to families. Thanks for checking me out!

- Scott

Some of the issues with most math students is that they tend to skip steps when solving any problem. I aim to teach students how to tackle any mathematical problem with surgical precision. This way tackling math problems becomes so easy to the point where you will ace your next exam.

About Cris
Have you been searching through countless online videos in deep interest of learning a new instrument without any luck? Perhaps you need a little bit of guidance while you're slowly becoming the best musical version of yourself. I aim to help any piano student regardless of level to help them become independent of teaching services. As a former Berklee School of Music graduate, and in my struggles of practicing and learning music during high school I know how frustrating it can be to pay for lessons with minimal gains. In general, I aim to teach you to become independent of teachers like me.

I enjoy watching basketball, soccer, football, tennis, etc. I am always excited whenever the Olympics are showing because I get to see different athletes from all over the world compete for their country. Of all the sports I watch, basketball is the one I enjoy the most and practice every week. I believe that it is important to train the body, the mind, ...
