Hi there! I'm Lizzy and I love working with students and problem solving! I have a broad-range of academic and professional experiences, which offer cross disciplinary perspectives and skillsets that you might not find in other private tutors. In addition to a diverse academic background, with two master's degrees from school at the top of their fields, I worked on Wall Street for four years as a marketing analyst for a fund of hedge funds. For nearly fifteen years I have been working with students from middle school through college, one-on-one or in classrooms, on topics ranging from Hebrew language to film history. In each of these instances I pride myself on adapting the material to the student's learning style and academic needs.

In May 2018, I earned an M.A. in Cinema and Media Studies from the University of Southern California, where I worked as a Teaching Assistant and course grader. As a TA, from fall 2016 to summer 2018, I was independently responsible for leading weekly discussion sections of roughly 25 undergraduate students. Much of my time was dedicated to editing and grading papers, designing interactive lesson plans, and accommodating various learning levels. In addition to offering classroom instruction and feedback on assignments, I made a point of working one-on-one with each student, so as to help them excel. As a result, my students's grades were on average three points higher than the general class average. Over the course of two years I graded and offered feedback on over 1,200 undergraduate students' assignments.

My mentorship and tutoring experience began at Bryn Mawr College, where I graduated with honors with a B.A. in Middle Eastern History. While there, I tutored college students in Hebrew language arts, a venture I continued while obtaining an M.S.L.S. in Archives and Records Management at the University of North Carolina -- Chapel Hill. While tutoring, I adjusted the content to each student's learning style and abilities. There is no "one sizes fits all" when it co

Lauren, 4 lessons with Lizzy

excellent pace

I have already started to read and understand simple sentences in about a month of lessons! For someone who started as an absolute beginner I feel 100% satisfied and still in disbelief. Thanks for all your patience and excellent teachings, Lizzy!

Alicia, 77 lessons with Lizzy

Efficient, detailed and encouraging

She is very efficient, and encouraging. Her comment is honest and detailed. My daughter is very happy. My daughter was in hurry for her due date. She was not sure for how she was doing. Lizzy's comment is honest and detailed. But at same time, it is encouraging. Thank you.

Knowledgeable tutor and patient.

She understood my goals and trouble spots, quickly, and helped solve them. I could see how I needed to adjust my process and achieve the result I wanted. I feel better about performing and having more confidence.

Great tutor!

We just started with Lizzy in preparation for our Spring Break trip to Israel. She is working with my daughter and I to learn travel Hebrew. She is helping us to learn the alphabet and she introduces new words through new letters. She is also teaching us common travel phrases. She is easy going and patient. I highly recommend her.
