About this pro

I focus on evaluating how students learn and go with their educational strengths.  I resource many online and textbook sources to keep my lessons fun and interesting.   I specialize in helping kids who are struggling feel empowered about math.. especially kids in grades 5 - 9.

I enjoy seeing my students evolve from overwhelmed to empowered with math.   I teach study skills that transform kids into organized and strategic mathematical thinkers,  and I love seeing how their sense of personal mastery shifts in a positive direction.

    Becka helped me to improve my math skills and to get ready for Algebra One. I really enjoyed working with her because she makes math fun. She explained parts of my homework that were confusing. Now I am in Algebra One and I am feeling better about math.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I begin with an assessment.. giving a casual "test" so that I can see a students strengths and weaknesses.  Then we talk about their goals and challenges in school so that I can get a sense of how their school is or is not supporting their needs.  Finally we come up with a strategy to fill in holes in the students understanding and restore confidence with their homework. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a bachelors degree from Columbia University where I took several advanced calculus courses and graduated with a degree in English and Pre-med.   I tutored for Inspirica in New York City where I helped kids prepare for standardized and AP tests in high school.  I have been tutoring on and off as a supplementary career to my Physical Therapy business since 1997.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $60 dollars per hour for my sessions.
