My experience and style:

ESL: Teacher of English and Spanish as a Second Language
Math: Elementary, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry

I have been teaching professionally for over 9 years. I have been teaching as a volunteer for over 20 years.

I have been trained in 28 effective teaching methods. I determine the methods to use by first determining the student preferred learning style. He may be a visual learner, an auditory learner, a tactile learner, or a kinetic learner. He may need a combination of methods. It's all about the student and how he prefers to process new information. My students become engaged. They have fun again. Their self confidence improves. Their grades reflect that quickly.

Some of the effective methods include: bouncing a balloon on the non-dominant elbow and reciting new concepts. Juggling scarves while reciting target facts. Jumping rope while reciting new information. Both hemispheres of the brain are engaged at the same time. (Not a easy assignment to do.) The student's brain comes alive and new connections are formed. Memory is created and retained.

These kinds of methos are especially successful with people with physical or mental challenges.

I would be happy to demonstrate these skills with you.

Tutor for my son with ADHD do far its going great!-

Elizabeth has been working very well for my son. So far were have only had 3 sessions but she has goid techniques to ingauge him so far and does exercises that help in his development in different areas like fine motor skills sence writing is difficult for my son I waa very happy to see she is more then a teacher but has definitely had training in these types of techniques and has studied and is up to date on ADHD and is knowledgeanle In this area. We haven't had enough time to c his grades improve but I'm sure we will in the near future all g with his confidence rising that would be great so at this point we like het a lot and will continue using her. No complaints. 5 stars

Patient and encouraging

Elizabeth has a special calmness about herself that many individuals who are afraid of math need! My anxiety quickly turned into calmness which allowed me to remember the information, only my first session looking forward to more and passing my next placement exam ! Me and Elizabeth met 11 times on my last 2 sessions we reviewed everything I learned that Friday I went back to take the assessment exam which I originally failed twice ! I PASSED !!! Elizabeth truly has an art of teaching that really works she tutors her students as an individual, if u want great results she is your pick, I am going to continue using her as my tutor in January when I start at my university! :) if this app had 6 stars I would, so I rate 5 easily.
