A native to Chicago, my name is Elissa, and I love to tutor, be it ESL, English and/or Hebrew. I am a graduate from Tel Aviv University with a BA degree in political science and Middle Eastern history.

Hebrew - I lived in Israel for over 10 years and taught myself Hebrew to the point of complete fluency in speaking, reading, and writing. During my time in Israel, I taught new immigrants of all ages Hebrew.

ESL - I have over four years of experience teaching ESL to youth and professionals. From learning the alphabet to sounding competent in a work environment, I have developed the skills to improve anyone's English and find things you're interested in to make it fun and interesting.

English/Writing/Reading - From a young age I have had a large vocabulary and a strong understanding of the English language. In high school I was managing editor of the newspaper, have spent the last 10 years working as a freelance writer and worked my way through college editing university papers.

Whether interested in learning the basics, expanding on previous knowledge or working professionally, I can help with your English and/or Hebrew proficiency whether it's you're trying to get stronger or learn from scratch. My teaching style varies according to the students' needs and interests but I like to have fun while getting the job done.
