Qualifications & Experience

I graduated from Amherst College with a degree in African-American Studies, and hold a Master's Degree in Film Studies from Chapman University. I graduated at the top of my class, and have over 5 years of tutoring experience. While at Chapman, I served as their designated private tutor to help students who were struggling academically in their first year of college. I currently work as a full-time Instructional Aid in Inglewood, and I tutor in Literature, English, History, Film Studies and Production, Theater, and Drama. I am an expert test-taker, and coach on effective study strategies, note-taking, and time management. I am also vibrantly creative, easy-going, and patient. There's nothing too intimidating for you to learn! I am great at breaking down complicated subjects and making them accessible (and interesting) to you, and can also coach you in memorization and retention so that you can apply what you learn actively. I do not solely teach content, but also learning tools that you can apply at any stage in your future as a student.

Wow, Rachel completely transformed my gasp on the material. She helped me with my literature essay, and I thought I got Shakespeare, but she helped me understand it on a whole new level. She's awesome! Five Stars!

Rachel rocks. She helped me master note-taking for my dense readings, and it's been a life-saver. She's super patient, and knows just how hard to push you in order to challenge you, but also not overwhelm you. Totally recommend!
