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

Drawing

I graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Textile and Surface Design. I am familiar with a number of different mediums. I also know a few techniques that sound weird but have helped me draw better. Example, if you're sketching an object in front of you, focus only on the object, not on what your hand is drawing on the paper. Follow the lines with your eyes, follow the curves and let your hand draw while your eyes move over it. This will help you get the shape of the object down, then you can go back in and add the details. It's hard to get used to, but a wonderful technique once you've tried it a few times.

Dyslexia

My experience with Dyslexia comes from helping my younger sister with her school work. She is dyslexic and also has processing issues. I am also mildly dyslexic and understand that it isn't easy when a student learns differently. To my mind, the best experience is personal experience.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a baby sitter for many years when I was younger. I would help my kids who were elementary grade level with their homework and studies. I am comfortable with this age group and they tend to respond to me well.

Microsoft Excel

I've had to use Excel at a number of jobs. I'm pretty much self-taught as it wasn't a requirement when I was in school. I can help you navigate the spread sheets in Excel.

Painting

I hold an AAS degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Textile and Surface design. I was also a paid intern at DuPont Fashion and Fibers while in school. Once I graduated I spent the next 5 or 6 years in the fashion and home furnishing industry. I am familiar with a number of different mediums and genres of art with still life, weaving and jewelry making being my favorites.

Study Skills

I struggled with finding the right study methods for me. I know how hard it can be. I believe that I can help my students figure out what works best for them. I can and will encourage them to make those study techniques a habit that they can stick with for the length of their school career.

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.
