About Elizabeth

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Illinois at Springfield and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I have worked with English students in reading and writing from K-12th grade, and from remedial to AP levels. I have spent 10 years working in the court and community schools for Placer County of Education as a special education aide. I have been tutoring K-12th graders for 10 years and absolutely love it! Students will find my passion and enthusiasm infectious and their confidence will grow as they begin to overcome their educational challenges. I am a firm believer in lifelong learning, and to that end, I make learning fun. I have experience with special education students, AP students, and everyone in between. I will meet your student where they are and individualize my lessons to their unique learning style and circumstances.

I have extensive experience tutoring math, including Algebra, both privately and in public school. I assess students' individual learning styles and knowledge gaps and individualize my lessons appropriately. I am familiar with both Common Core and CPM (College Preparatory Mathematics). I have worked with Common Core since its introduction into California schools and have helped many students make the transition to this system. Most importantly, I can help students overcome math anxiety and to build the confidence they need to succeed.

Finally, I always keep lines of communication open with parents and teachers to give students the best support possible. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have spent 10 years working in the court and community schools for Placer County of Education as a speciaL education aide and had many students with ADD|ADHD including many with BSP|BIP (Behavior Support Plans and Behavior Intervention Plans). I know many techniques to help improve focus as well as to accommodate wandering attention and hyperactivity.

Autism

Not only have I been privately tutoring an Autistic young lady (age 26 now) for the past 2 years in reading, writing and life-skills (such as cooking and shopping), but I have also been in 23 different ASD classrooms with 1st–3rd graders and 18–22 years old for the past year. I am familiar with PECS, ABA and EGD's. Further, I am extremely patient and very dedicated.

Career Development

In my 10 years in the court and community schools with Placer County Office of Education, I have worked a lot with job readiness, including resume and application writing, aptitude testing, and career exploration. I also spent 2 years as WA1 (Workability Assistant 1) providing and documenting workability services to our special education students aged 16 and over.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored K-6th students in reading, writing, science, social studies and mathematics for 10 years, both privately and in public school . This includes special ed, general ed and ESL students. I have a Bachelor's degree in English, but have tutored more math than anything else, as that seems to be where the greatest need is. I use a variety of visual and auditory aides to best match students learning style and always make sure that my lessons are fun as well as informative.
