About Elias

They say, a head is more than a funnel to the stomach. I grew up hating school hours and always had an excuse to miss class time. As a result of this, I did badly in class especially in Mathematics and sciences. When I went to High School, there were these two teachers who helped me a great deal open up. Due to their teaching methods and their approach, I started loving class time and I was anticipating their classes. This greatly changed my academic standing from being an average student to being the best in my class. That was the breakthrough I needed to do well, aim high and believe that I can achieve great.
I have used this experience to tutor people (young and old). I consider tutoring, a calling. I believe that there are a lot of students out there who may be good at something but think that they are not because they lack a breakthrough. A good experienced tutor is an asset which must be used.

When tutoring, I prefer to go at the pace of the student, talk with them and let them participate actively. The approach I use to tutor is not solid but fluid as I have to adapt it to different personalities, backgrounds and ages. That is why it is important for me as a tutor to know and understand something about the student. My background in Psychology and my experience in tutoring helps me a lot to help those who sincerely need help.

I challenge my student always never to say never but to hold their heads high and say Yes I can, Let's do it.

When tutoring, I am fun and try to make the subject matter as fun as possible so that as knowledge makes that entry into the mind, it is as pleasant as possible.

I have a particular connection to Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry and Calculus), Philosophy and History because many find them as difficult as I did. I can help transform the difficulty into possibilities. I have also tutor Theology, Bible and the Religions for those who have interest in these.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Religion

I have a Bachelors in Liberal Arts which includes three years of Scripture study, history of religions, a study or religious beliefs, philosophy of religions, ethics, bioethics, and psychology of faith.
