About Rachel

About Rachel

Teaching is
my passion.

My favorite part about being a teacher is figuring out the puzzle pieces of each individual student's needs. There is no single way to explain a new concept or to give feedback - every student deserves a personalized approach unique to their learning style.

1 session per week

$40 savings!



2-3 sessions per week



Let's get started!


Select your package.

We offer three different packages (4, 8, and 12 packs), depending on how many times per week you would like to meet. Packages are intended to last each student about a month.


Schedule your weekly session(s).

Session times are reserved on a weekly basis in one-hour intervals on weekday afternoons and weekend mornings.


Receive a Zoom link, and start meeting with Rachel!

Students are required to have a laptop or tablet with functional microphone and calendar. Tablets with writing tools (i.e. iPad with Apple Pencil) are strongly recommended.

What is On-Demand Support?

On Demand

On-Demand support is the help you need when you need it.

Already feeling overbooked? Not sure where to fit weekly sessions into your schedule? A new form of academic support, our on-demand tutoring program has evolved to meet the needs of today's students.

If you're stuck on one tough problem, I'll send back a video explaining the solution as well as a few similar problems students can use for practice! If you need an essay critiqued, I'll send back a redlined copy of the essay with my suggestions for improving overall theme and voice, as well as smaller suggestions for grammar or diction. All within 48 hours of receiving your assignment!

Cost: $40/assignment

Frequently asked questions

Q: What makes Equal MindEd different?

We offer options beyond the traditional tutoring setup. Our unique on-demand program offers academic support in all subjects on your own time, meaning that if you have a busy schedule, or are out of town, we will still provide you with any assistance you may need!

We also provide instruction to improve time management, organization, and communication skills, taking our instruction beyond typical classroom needs into the real world.

Q: What happens if I need to reschedule, or miss a live session?

We ask for 24 hour notice before a missed session, if possible. However, we also understand that sometimes life gets in the way, and so if you are unable to give 24 hour notice, we offer two "no penalty" cancellations. After those two cancellations, however, the scheduled session will be counted toward your package or membership total.

Q: What technology is required for the live sessions and video responses?

Live sessions will be conducted in Equal MindEd's Zoom Room. Students will need a computer with a microphone and camera in order to participate. Students are also encouraged to bring a tablet and stylus if they have one so that they may show their work on the screen.

Video responses will be sent via Google Drive links. 

Assignment feedbacks will be sent as PDFs.


"My daughter had the great fortune to be tutored by Rachel Phillips throughout the 4 years of the grueling high school math curriculum, including the dreaded COVID distance-learning time. Math was always my daughter “weak spot," but she was willing to work hard to understand the concepts. Rachel really builds a bond and trust with her students that leads to motivation. Rachel was always incredibly patient and practical about how make the lessons and concepts come to life. Rachel was such a good tutor that my daughter not only had the “ah-ha moments” of understanding, but felt empowered and confident in her newfound understanding so that when test day came, she was able to perform well and be proud of her approach on test day. I highly recommend Rachel. She is a gifted teacher and mentor, both as an in-person and  Zoom tutor. Any student would benefit from this powerful teacher-student partnership. Thank you Rachel for being such a a positive presence in my daughter’s life these past 4 years!”
