My name is Elizabeth C., and I have 15 years teaching experience. I've taught elementary school through adult education. I hold two Master degrees -one in teaching and another one in linguistics. I also have a teaching credential, a reading specialist certificate, and a TESL certificate. I'm bilingual in English and Spanish.

Although I was in a classroom for many years, I greatly enjoy working with both children and adults on a one to one basis or in small groups. Over the years, I have taught many subjects and many levels. There isn't one subject that I like to teach over another one. For me, the most important thing is for the students to understand the subject at hand. My students have been very successful because I use various teaching strategies and methods in order for them to understand the subject.

Finally, I'm a patient person. I'm also an easy going person that makes the subject fun for all students. Ultimately, my goal is to have students be successful and to enjoy learning.

Some study skills that I teach include the rewriting of notes, taking notes while reading, flashcards, among other strategies. Also, aving gone through undergraduate and graduate school twice, I had firsthand experience of how being planned, organized, and having the right study skills are factors for success in school.

Easy Going and Right on Target

Liz has been such a great help to focus my children on the basics of Spanish. She continually makes appropriate assessments. She is always very well prepared and bringing extra tools for their success. She has a calm and gentle approach while at the same time paying close attention and correcting them appropriately for accuracy. I have taken many, many years of Spanish study and still learned from her as an observer. She is very thorough. We had a unique situation and she exceeded my expectations. I only wish we had found her sooner.
