My name is Elena and I am excited to help you develop your skills in Writing, Reading, Sociology, History and other subjects! My tutoring styles utilizes tools- such as index cards, markers and board work, colored highlighters and sticky notes- in order to help you develop the study skills so that you don't only master the content, but also develop as a successful student.
I currently work as an instructor at San Francisco State University, where I teach Ethnic Studies and as a tutor for College Track, a non-profit organization that helps first-generation and under-prepared students get into college and have success once they attend. In both of these capacities, I work with a diverse group of students in subjects ranging from Ethnic Studies, Literature, History, Political Science, English, Sociology, and Language Arts. Previously, I was a Reading, Writing and Study Skills Tutor at San Francisco State University where I accumulated more than 500 hours of tutoring experience. I also developed and taught Three different Writing Workshops.
All in all, this experience has given me a diverse toolbox of tutoring strategies as well as energized my passion for working individually with students to help them achieve their academic goals. Please contact me to speak more about the results that you want and how I can help you achieve them!
