Rachel started tutoring at age 17 as part of her school’s National Honor Society peer tutoring program. Soon, she was working as a math tutor, teaching middle schoolers fractions, percentages, and many of the other topics she still feels are essential math fundamentals for her students.

After graduating from high school as valedictorian, Rachel headed north to Middlebury College, where she majored in theatre and minored in math and French. A true liberal arts student, Rachel enjoyed pursuing coursework that ranged from acting to lighting design to probability to environmental studies to acting in her second language (while studying abroad in Paris). She graduated summa cum laude in 2013.

A few weeks later, Rachel arrived in New York with dreams of Broadway for her off-Broadway debut. The day after the final performance with that show, she started a job as a TA for an SAT summer course and has been back at tutoring ever since. She specializes in middle and high school mathematics as well as SAT preparation and has worked with students from ages 10 to 21. She takes pride in her individual teaching style and always works with her students to figure out how to approach problems in the way that makes the most sense to them.

On the other side of her actor/tutor persona, Rachel continues to study acting, voice, and dance. Since moving to New York, she has performed in plays, recorded French voiceovers, and founded a theatre company. She is constantly seeking out work and material that can challenge her as an actor, provide quality entertainment, and inspire her – and the audience – to explore a topic in a new way.
