About Elizabeth

Hello. I have a Bachelor's of Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech and worked in the semiconductor (microchip) field for many years. In the last few years I have begun teaching young children and am pursuing my teaching credential. I have taught math and science at the elementary level, as well as tutoring high school and college level math, physics, and chemistry.

I came to teaching through my daughter. I have adored interacting with she and her classmates as I planned and executed a full year science curriculum for their kindergarten class. When I make-up games to teach them a difficult concept, such as electricity, it is incredibly gratifying to watch the dawn of understanding spread through the group as each child begins to understand what they are being taught.

I love finding new and different ways to explain and practice difficult concepts. I am capable in all areas of math, except accounting math, and have taught within the new standards (Common Core). Also, in all areas of elementary science, and especially in physics and chemistry. I have a passion for teaching students about their world and about the tools math and science give them to understand it.

I have a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering. Regularly do math to keep mind active. I have tutored Chemistry, Physics, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry in the past. My students got "A's in their subjects at the end of the year, even if they were failing when we first started working together.

When you work with me, you get someone dedicated to figuring out how the child's mind will best understand and process these subjects. Everyone is different, and each person can and will find their way to success with the right guidance.

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.

Chemical Engineering

I have an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering with some graduate level work. And I was active in the field for 15 years, managing large projects and laboratory experiments. I was active in the field for 15 years, managing large projects and laboratory experiments.

Elementary Science

I have a degree in engineering and experience teaching and creating curriculum for elementary school children in both Math and Science

Geometry

I have experience tutoring high school children and finding ways for them to succeed and feel they are competent in Geometry.

Organic Chemistry

I have an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering with some graduate level work. I was active in the field for 15 years, managing large projects and laboratory experiments. Organic chemistry was my favorite chemistry class during undergraduate school. All the rules and behaviors of compounds just make perfect sense to me, like they are a language I have always known.
