He explained and demonstrated different ways of thinking and figuring out fractions in algebra for me, which is something I always got hung up on. I feel a little more confident now, and am looking forward to future lessons.
I found guidance, friendship, discipline and love, everything, in one person. And that person is (Shelia S.). I also have to thank her for going out of her way to come and meet me at the library to pick a book that was best suitable for me.
As a new comer to America, I wanted to have some tutor to guide me English pronunciation, listening and speaking.
Rebecca pinpointed my wrong pronunciation, which I believe I could never find out myself. It was surprising that some pronunciation I had no doubt I'm good at was actually wrong. Now I'm pretty more confident about my pronunciation, though I need more time to get used to it.
Also it was fun to exercise "listen and repeat". At first, she read 4~5 words from a book and I was to repeat them. It was more challenging that I had thought. I usually forgot "a" or "the" and was confused with tenses. It revealed that I was lack of some grammar knowledge which I studied long ago but almost forgot. So it gave me direction to improve my English. Now she increased the words to a whole sentence and I can repeat it (not always perfect, but I see improvement very clearly).
These things may not sound so great for the natives, but for people whose mother tongue is not English, it should be very promising.
And Rebecca is open to my suggestion and opinion about the tutoring and very keen to change tutoring method to my request.
I think that anybody who wants to improve English should try her tutoring.
