About Elaine


Bio

I have extensive experience working with and mentoring some of our top science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students. For over 14 years, I have been teaching general education chemistry for non-science majors, organic chemistry for pre-health professions students, and technical communications for chemistry and biochemistry majors.

I have extensive experience working with and mentoring some of our top science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students. For over 14 years, I have been teaching general education chemistry for non-science majors, organic chemistry for pre-health professions students, and technical communications for chemistry and biochemistry majors.

With my chemistry, materials engineering, and educational technology background, I have built a strong foundation in teaching mathematics.

Through my teaching, research, and service to diverse student populations, I have learned that student success is a holistic experience. I strongly believe in ensuring students’ personal, academic, and professional growth. As a woman of color in (STEM), and as an educator who works with student populations who have been historically underrepresented in STEM, I firmly believe in the continuous development of access to holistic education and equitable educational opportunities for everyone. To ensure student development through access and equity, it is necessary to build a strong community that will equip students for their success.

Patient, thorough and accommodating

Elaine is a Godsend amidst the Coronavirus lockdown. Elaine immediately got in touch and was available to help my daughter with her Chemistry Class. She was very patient walking her through this whole process specially since she’s used to in-person lectures. Elaine’s patient and effective methods (she’s a true teacher with a masters in Education) really made my daughter more interested in loving Chemistry. More lessons to come!

Knowledgeable tutor

Elaine's continued help with chemistry has been extremely helpful. She is caring and patient. She will spend the extra time to help you understand the concepts.

Jade, 6 lessons with Elaine

Informative and helpful

Elaine is working with my son on chemistry. My son is a complainer and struggles with completing his homework. Elaine is doing a fabulous job because he has not complained even one time about having a tutoring session with her. Her feedback after the lessons is very thorough and the homework that she gives him to reinforce her lesson has been very helpful too. Highly recommend!

Socorro, 5 lessons with Elaine

Great first lesson with Elaine!

Elaine went through some of the struggles I was having with Pre-AP chemistry and showed me step by step how to solve in a better way than I was learning in school. After my first lesson, I feel so much more confident about what I am doing in class. I look forward to more lessons with Elaine!

Jillian, 14 lessons with Elaine

Knowledgeable and professional tutor

Elaine is prompt to answer your request of high school chemistry tutoring and gave you options of location and time to select. My son was very happy to be taught by her because of her clarity in explanation and exercises to enforce the lesson. And I got a summary of what she taught at the end of the session through Wyzant.
