All of Elizabeth’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Elizabeth’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

American History

American history, and history in general, was one of my favorite subjects in school. It was always fascinating to imagine how the actions and lives of certain people ended up shaping the fate of a nation. One of my favorite books in American History was called The Day the American Revolution Began, in which we learn interesting facts like John Hancock had an ornate gold coach and while fleeing from the British, has to leave a salmon feast behind!

English

I graduated from Scripps College, whose liberal arts education focuses extensively on paper writing, literature, etc.

I received a very high score on the SAT in the English and Writing section. Vocabulary and English come easily to me as I am an avid reader, which has helped me learn a wide array of words and alternate definitions for those words.

I have also recently tutored a high school student in vocabulary in history, so I feel as though I am confident in helping a student learn vocabulary.

Government & Politics

I recently graduated from Scripps College last spring with a BA in Political Science. I wrote my thesis on the White House Tribal Nations Conferences - basically Native politics at the federal level.

Some of the classes I took during my undergraduate career were: International Political Relations, American Government, Comparative Politics, and Civil Liberties and Fundamental Rights.

I currently work as a Native Liaison at Pitzer and Pomona Colleges so I encounter a lot of politics - more of a community programming/engagement politics - in my everyday work.

Political Science

My undergraduate major in college was Political Science. I studied major political theorists, schools of political thought, and learned to connect and apply political sciences ideas and theory to everyday experiences. I truly enjoy discuss political theory and ideas, as I keep up with the current events to inform my views. I also experienced politics firsthand as in Intern in the House of Representatives. I am always interested in helping others discover how interesting politics can really be.

Public Speaking

I was a shy kid growing up and public speaking was a torturous task for me; I stuttered a lot or wouldn't even speak up at all. In my second year of middle school, I participated in the Junior Statesmen of America program, whose basis was a mock government program. It emphasized debate, of which public speaking is key. I ended up winning my final debate, arguing against the War in Iraq. In high school, I participated in the Debate Club for a year and debated against other students in the New England area. I also interned in my congresswoman's office during summer 2009, which also emphasized public speaking. My current job as a Native Liaison also emphasizes public speaking. I can now confidently speak in public but it is still not my favorite activity, so I can relate to students who still are working on their public speaking skills.

Reading

I am a life-long reader and much of my younger years was spent voraciously reading. I credit reading with providing me with a strong base in grammar, spelling, vocabulary, and has helped me immensely in tests such as the SAT and GRE.

SAT Reading

I took the SAT and did very well on the reading and writing sections (my scores were in the high 600's), as well as the essay section. I took the SAT II's, and got a 700 on the SAT II English section. I am also an avid reader and I read daily, which keeps my reading and vocab skills up to par.

SAT Writing

I took the SAT and did very well on the reading and writing sections (my scores were in the high 600's), as well as the essay section. I took the SAT II's, and got a 700 on the SAT II English section. I am also an avid reader and I read daily, which keeps my reading and vocab skills up to par.

Vocabulary

As previously mentioned, I am a life-long and voracious reader. I credit reading with my strong and excellent grasp of vocabulary and spelling. As proof, my SAT reading score was close to 800 and I did not need to study for that section either.

Writing

As a politics major from a Liberal arts college, I have had extensive experience in writing. My final thesis was 186 pages long; but I am also good at writing short concise papers as well. I have personal experience in helping younger siblings write papers, so I am able to guide younger students in the writing process. I also scored very well in the SAT writing section; I read a lot and have a very good grasp of grammar and sentence structure.
