Welcome to Rachel Teaches!


I am a local teacher based in the Northwest Houston area and my goal is to help more people experience personal, student-focused, and life-giving education.

Take a look at my services below or read more about who I am on the About page.

Individual Lessons


Do you have a student who struggles in the conventional classroom or in your homeschool? I provide one-on-one lessons that help all students become self-educating, attentive, life-long learners. Available subjects include Language Arts, Original Writing, Literature, History, and Nature Study. View the Individual Lessons page for more details.




Small Group Lessons


While one-on-one lessons can be very effective, a small group of friends learning together is a delightful and motivating experience for students. Small groups allow each student time to participate and share their unique discoveries with kids their own age. The format will vary depending on the needs of the families involved. Small Group Lessons are hosted by a participating family. Read more on the Small Group Lessons page.



Homeschool Consultation


Not everyone needs an outside class or teacher to get started. If you are looking for help or recommendations for the coming year, I will consult with you about the method and resources I use. The first assessment consultation is free! See Consultation page for details and links to free resources.







Nature Explorers


Venture out with us into the marvelous outdoors! We are a local nature study group that visits public parks and gardens to study nature, share inspiring nature lore, and practice drawing and recording our discoveries in nature notebooks.

Available Courses


Finding outside lessons for your students is challenging!

These lessons can rescue your student from listless lectures and lead them to lively discussions and clearer thinking. Click to button below to take a closer look at courses I offer.
