I am certified in ALL sciences, Math, ESOL, Italian (also working on Spanish accreditation), and trained in AP Environmental Science and Handwriting Without Tears.
I have been tutoring since 1997 and loved working with school aged students so much that in 2011 I took up teaching and tutoring for a local school district.
I have accepted both private and institutional assignments and I pride myself with the repeat requests I receive to conduct CRCT & EOCT remediation classes.
I have also been selected to contract my services as an academic tutor for a state agency and a metro homeschooling coop.
My forte is the ability to identify my students strength and weaknesses and then draw from their everyday life experiences to help them visualize the concepts on which they struggle. No subject is too complex to be explained w a few old time resources, tools, or memories. And no example is too trivial if it serves it's purpose...Help my student experience understanding and success!
I completed my neurobiology work at the University of Modena e Reggio Emilia in Italy. My students from the days of my graduate internship at NAHS came up with the nickname Ms. CuzCuz... I kept it because those were the first kids with whom I was ever able to share my love for learning and I will NEVER forget them!
I am also available to tutor:
-to ensure summer content retention, get a head start on the upcoming content, review/remediate/prepare for standardized testing (SAT/ACT/CRCT/EOCT).
-homeschooled child/children/small groups in subjects that aren't your forte (by the way, you're welcome to sit with us and learn something new...or something old in a new way), help w/ multiple subjects, schedule SMALL group sessions, & ongoing homework support!
I love everything science, math, literacy, and multicultural! In my spare time, I enjoy goofing out with my son and our science "experiments" (one time we were snowed in and had a ball building volcanoes and DNA models, on Halloween, we made Elephant toothpaste and had our front step inundated by pumpkin puke!).
I am willing to meet anywhere in Buckhead, Midtown, Fulton, Gwinnett, and Cobb County for the right assignments.
I look forward to getting you excited about learning! Hang with me and you will have a good time!
Great tutor, very knowledgeable. — I have been looking for a tutor for about a month, Elisa found me, sounded fantastic and came over same day, to my house! She's very sweet and knows 3 languages and 2 dead ones (Greek and Latin). She has a repertoire of A to Z but analyzed my needs and started with A and a little B, perfect for my speed. I'm excited to work with her and I know, with her help I'll be having passable Spanish conv ...
