University of Redlands (Political Science)
Hi, my name is Elizabeth. I first began tutoring as a college student. I tutored elementary through high school grades in a variety of subjects. I graduated from the University of Redlands with a degree in Political Science, and a minor in Accounting. After college, I went to work in the legal field as a paralegal. Though I thoroughly enjoyed my work, a family member convinced me to apply for a teaching position. I ended up loving it and took a break from the legal field to teach at a community college. I mainly taught College Algebra and computer courses. After 5 years of teaching, I moved into the College’s Student Center where I worked as the Student Center Coordinator and Technology Coach. In the Student Center, I tutored students in math and English and helped instructors and students work with the schools technology. Recently I relocated to San Diego and for the past two years, I have been working with students from low-income families to build math and English skills.
I really enjoy time spent tutoring. I love empowering students and helping them to build confidence in their lives and schoolwork. I believe that learning can be fun. I like to use games and technology when possible. I believe there are three broad learning styles: visual, auditory and kinesthetic (hands-on). I like to figure out what learning styles work best for each student and then tailor my teaching to their style of learning. I believe it is important to establish clear, measurable goals. Then I like to track those goals as the tutoring session’s progress. If the student and tutor are committed to meeting those goals, then they will be successful!
I am available by phone, email or text. I look forward to meeting you!

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.
