My name is Elise, and I'd like to tell you about myself. I have been a tutor for two years, helping students with science, math, English, writing, and test prep. I have a bachelor's degree in math from a private, liberal arts university and a master's degree in information science from the University at Albany.
I specialize in helping students with math from elementary school to calculus. Many students are intimidated by math especially as they reach high school. My goal is to help them to understand the concepts and gain confidence in their skills, so that they can truly succeed and be prepared for college. Whether you are looking for a few sessions before Regents or more long term tutoring, I can help!
I also work with students to prepare for the SAT, PSAT, and ACT. These tests help determine a student's future. I provide strategies and tips for test taking and review the concepts tested by the SAT, PSAT, and ACT.
In addition to math and test prep, I also tutor students in physics. Many students view physics with the same fear as math and never understand the concepts. I help my students to realize that physics is the something they already know from their life experiences and can be one of their most enjoyable classes.
I am happy to travel to your home or meet in a local library, whichever is more convenient for you.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping your student achieve success.
