"Teacher with a degree in Elementary Education"
While I was in college I tutored in a first grade classroom to get volunteer hours. This was the first time I had been in an elementary classroom since I was in elementary school. I tutored there twice a week and grew to love it and looked forward to going. I loved helping the students with learning to read and loved hearing their stories. This positive experience resulted in me pursuing a major in Elementary Education K-6. While in college, I continued tutoring students and participated... ... More
I have always had trouble with math. No offense to male tutors, but the last two I had (on my own) made me feel like an idiot. Becky makes me feel very comfortable. She explains things very thoroughly, and goes over them as many times as I need until I understand. She gives me examples and has a warm personality. She works around my hectic schedule, and helps me in a pinch, especially if I am pressed to get something in on time. I am so happy with her and thankful I found her. I am dealing with a personal tragedy that makes it hard to focus and she is so patient. I was drowning in a pool of exponents and "power," but thanks to Becky, I'm staying grounded! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

This approach has proven to help their educational confidence and understanding along the way. ... More
I am a jack of all trades, but professionally GIS is at the top of my list for work tasks that I enjoy. My co-workers, who are not GIS professionals, will often get more explanation than they asked for when they ask about GIS, because I just love it that much.
