My 9th grader was struggling with Pre-Algebra and was currently receiving a 67% as a grade in Math. Rachel uses a tailored approach to show her students multiple ways to understand the concepts. She is patient and very encouraging which helps to build confidence. Rachel is extremely knowledgeable and her passion for teaching students and helping them to "like" math is clearly evident in the very first meeting. After 3 sessions, my daughter received her first A in math and after 5 sessions my daughter's overall grade moved up to a high C. I recommend Rachel and her Math expertise to anyone who is looking for assistance! " name="Kirsten P. from Gilbert, AZ" description="algebra 1
