PARC Director & Learning Coach

Appointment Location(s): North and South PARC

San Diego


Hi, students! I'm Rebecca, the PARC's director and one of our learning coaches. The most important things for you to know about me are that I love tutoring and that public universities are my favorite places to work. I became a writing tutor at UMass Boston more than fifteen years ago and realized soon after that I wanted to pursue a career in learning assistance. In addition to tutoring, I have coordinated tutoring programs at two universities, most recently at San José State, and taught community college reading and composition courses. I completed a Bachelor’s in sociology from Brandeis University, a Master’s in English literature from UMass Boston, and a postgraduate degree in developmental studies from the Boston University School of Education. These qualifications might make me sound kind of fancy, but I am actually a pretty down-to-earth person. I hope you will come by the PARC this semester. I am looking forward to meeting you!
