Rebecca W.

I have a Bachelors degree in English and Religious Studies from the University of California Davis and just recently completed my Masters degree in Religion from Claremont Graduate University. I absolutely love learning and totally geek out about whatever I study, right now it’s American history and politics. I’m currently hoping to avoid the financial quagmire that is a PhD in American History by becoming a high school teacher. I have been working with high school students steadily since I was a high school student myself. I have years of experience as a coach, a teacher, a mountain guide, and a mentor. Most recently I have worked as an SAT prep tutor. I really enjoy the one-on-one work of tutoring because there is almost always such noticeable improvement. I loved watching my students scores jump, sometimes by over 200 points. I bring my infectious passion for learning and a decade of coaching experience to every tutoring session. I tutor more as a coach than as a teacher. Rather than viewing myself as the giver of knowledge, I see myself as partnering with students to achieve a common goal. I am thus very committed to my students and highly invested in their success. It is always my goal for students to take ownership over their education and extend that success beyond the limits of tutoring. Fun Facts: My parents are farmers. I guess from time to time I am too. My hobbies include snowboarding, running (well, jogging), climbing mountains, and exploring different religious traditions, but mostly I read a lot. I’ll go on a reading binge for several weeks and then stop to catch up on all of the TV shows I missed. I do thirty push-ups and fifty sit-ups everyday. I also eat a poached egg and toast every morning for breakfast. I coach high school volleyball and softball and have never been kicked out of a game- though I was close once or twice.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
