About Elsa

Education and teaching are life-long pursuits of mine. As a student who graduated both from the sciences as well as a Humanities Honors program, I have not only a strong commitment to hard work, but I thoroughly enjoy learning and encouraging others to develop the love of learning for themselves. I have had experience both teaching groups in the classroom as well as tutoring individuals, and I have done well with both. I believe that education is a gift, and I am passionate about sharing that gift with students in whatever way I can.
I specialize in a variety of subjects, ranging from biology and math to English, reading, grammar, vocabulary, and Latin. My experience has been specifically in tutoring K-6th grade students, but I am comfortable tutoring students from elementary school through high school in all subjects mentioned, although I only tutor high school math through Algebra I. I have also had extensive experience teaching ESL students. Specifically, I have worked overseas with ESL students in Ukraine, but I have also worked stateside with international students from four different countries, teaching English and reading.

One of my favorite things about tutoring is that I enjoy making the learning process both fun and challenging for my students through learning games and fun memory techniques. In order to reinforce the lessons being taught during sessions, I assign relevant homework problems for students to take home.

Since I make it a priority to communicate well with my students, I will provide assessments periodically. I also highly value feedback, and will ask for it regularly during tutoring sessions. I have flexible tutoring hours, though I do ask for a twenty-four notice if cancellation is necessary in order to simplify everyone's schedules. I find that coffee shops typically make for a comfortable and convenient learning environment, so I usually offer to meet students at a Starbucks or other local coffee shop.

Please feel free to email me with any other questions! I look forward to helping you succeed in your studies!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
