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

Biology

I hold a Masters Degree in Biology. I am able to help students at undergraduate level, high school and middle school levels with this subject.

ESL/ESOL

I am currently a certified tutor with the Largo Library teaching English as a second language (ESL). I have also completed a certification with the Florida Literacy Coalition as an ESL Tutor. I have been a certified US Government translator from English to Spanish and vice-versa, since the 70's. I have published articles in English and have been a Public Speaker for a governmental agency. I have been in the USA now for over 40 years and I have excellent command over the writing, reading and speaking of English. Having learned English as a second language gives me the advantage of knowing the intricacies and difficulties inherent to this process, which someone that only speaks or always spoke English would not begin to comprehend.

Nutrition

I earned a Masters Degree in Biology with a Certificate in Human Nutrition in 1990 from the University of Bridgeport and have been a Licensed Nutritionist in Florida in private practice for the last 22 years.

I have many years of experience in Nutrition Consulting in Wellness Clinics with a focus in assisting clients find better health through natural means. This always involved one-on-one or group counseling, the most direct form of educating. I also have extensive experience in public speaking and addressing groups on a variety of subjects. I have also taught adult education classes for many years in Nutrition and healthy eating habits, having developed my own curriculum for these classes.

In the years I have lived in Florida, close to 23, I have had the privilege of working with some of the most noted and recognized physicians in the field of alternative medicine and nutrition in the Tampa Bay area.

I humbly consider myself a great communicator and motivator and believe that the field of nutrition is at the forefront in people’s mind and knowledge about this field can benefit a great portion of the population, both personally and in health care settings.

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.
