I believe the largest part of being a tutor is maintaining patience with my students. From past experience, I understand that people learn in different ways. Often, classroom teachers do not have the time to individually help each student, so I see myself as the main back-up that my students can rely upon. I will calmly explain anything they do not comprehend and will answer all questions.
I have been to many parts of the world. My father was in the Navy, so, as a child, I lived in several foreign countries. I enjoy traveling and learning about other peoples and their cultures.
I can read, speak, and write Spanish as well as I do in English and I have been very well educated in the English language.
I like to help people better themselves. I never forget those ah-hah moments when my students are able to grasp a concept that has been alluding them and their eyes light up and a beautiful smile spreads across their face.

Elizabeth was patient and friendly with a very nice way about her. Our daughter felt very comfortable with her and I appreciated her knowledge of many subjects and her willingness to be available when we needed her.
Elizabeth has been great in tutoring our daughter in Algebra 2. She relates the subject matter to real life, gives good examples and techniques, and strategies on how to work through problems. Our daughter enjoys having Elizabeth as a tutor!
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.
I started playing clarinet when I was ten years old. That was over forty years ago. I played in elementary school, junior high, high school, college, and graduate school. As part of my bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies, I not only was in the CSUSB (California State University at San Bernardino) band, I also took music history and theory classes. And, I still play my clarinet. I sit as a third chair in the Long Beach Community Band. We practice every Thursday evening and give concerts frequently throughout the year.
I was an ESL teacher in the Adult Education Department of Anaheim Union High School District for 15 years. I taught evening ESL classes to adults. My students were immigrants who were working toward U.S. citizenship. Over the years, I taught all the levels the program offered, from level 0 (no English whatsoever) to level 6 (ready to take the citizenship test). I still have many of the materials I used while teaching.
