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

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring a 10 year old for the past few weeks. We work on vocabulary building, reading comprehension, use of past versus present tenses (one of her difficulties) and pronunciation. I have found a lot of strategies to get her to write and participate as much as possible in the lesson, so I feel I'm qualified to tutor elementary school kids now.

English

I taught and tutored English at a community college and a private high school (San Diego area).

ESL/ESOL

I've taught ESL at companies while living in Europe, and I've taught ESL for teens and adults in California. I'm currently tutoring in ESL on a biweekly basis.

German

Besides earning a Bachelor's in German Language and Literature Studies, I lived in Germany for over three years to attain fluency.

Grammar

As an instructor of English Composition, I've taught grammar to teens and adults. As an ESL instructor, I have experience with students from diverse cultures learning the mechanics of English.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used MS Outlook for many years in a business capacity, which includes scheduling meetings and appointments, sending and receiving email and task management.

Proofreading

In a business context, I have proofread everything from lengthy proposals to brief emails. I have been in charge of editing website content for a company as well. In an educational context, I have proofread research papers and submissions to a journal.

Public Speaking

As part of my job in the business world, I've had to address large groups of people. I've also taken speech courses and taught classes with up to 35 students.

Writing

I have not only written my own research papers, but assisted others with writing theirs. In a business context, I have created numerous proposals, reports, and other documents on a regular basis for several years.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
