About Elin

I have tutored writing at my local community college for over two years ranging from ESL for adults in their 70s to advanced English students that are English majors. I have also privately tutored students in elementary and middle school students in all subjects, and high school students in writing, political science, history and CAHSEE preparation. Communicating with teachers and professors alike, I know what graders look for and I know what students commonly make as mistakes in their work.

My true passion for tutoring is the same cliche answer you've heard from Hayley Scott from One Tree Hill and every other tutor (on TV and not) - I love seeing the "aha" moment on a student's face. I was once one of those students that convinced myself that school is not for me and I need to be street smart, not test smart. Eventually, once I attended college I realized the main roadblock preventing me from doing my academic best was because I had no idea that "learning styles" existed.

After many workshops and articles, I have learned about how students can learn about their personal learning style and apply it to their course. I know that being strict is sometimes necessary, but the last thing a student needs is another teacher that is going to guide them from the sidelines. Using different materials and creating a baseline where the student can work both with and without me emphasizes my intent of making you a better learner - not me a better grader. Let's do this together - my goal is for you not to need me anymore!

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.

Public Speaking

At the age of 16, I was put in an improv situation with my local Toastmasters group without knowing. I was instantly handed a business card to join the group when I was 18 - asked how I was so calm in front of a big audience I didn't know. Obnoxiously an introvert, I love speaking, both on my behalf and on behalf of others. Scoring a 100% in my public speaking course in college, my professor curated the course in a hands-on approach where I can help other students and offer insight on what to do and what not to do. Along with my many extra-curriculars, my ability to speak in public landed me positions such as the Finance Lead (and lead speaker) at my local Relay for Life committee, internship and canvassing position at my local political party group, VP position in my college student body and much more.

I do believe some people are natural born speakers but I also believe that almost everyone can be nurtured and have that ability in them as well.

Writing

Two years as a writing tutor hired by Glendale Community College, three years experience tutoring college students privately, six years tutoring elementary and middle school students privately and two years tutoring high school students both on campus and privately.

She is very kind and has a very creative way of teaching. If her student doesn't understand, she comes up with another way that helps. I couldn't think of a more perfect tutor then her.
