About Elisa

My passion for working with students started when I began tutoring elementary school students during my undergrad at UCLA. Since then, it became is career!

I've been working with students on a one-one and small group capacity for over five years and enjoy all the moments and sparks that come with tutoring. Recently receiving "Employee of the Year" from a local school district, I hold my work to a high standard and make sure that all students gain the building blocks to future success.

I currently hold a MA and credential in Counselor Education and work also teach study skill sessions to middle and high school students in addition to working on personal statement and college applications.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I'm qualified to tutor in this area because my MA in education has an emphasis on college/academic counseling. I also hold my PPS credential in school counseling and have been an intern at the high school and middle school levels. Last, I have extensive knowledge on the college application process and have edited and helped students write personal statements and apply to colleges.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring and working with students K-6th grade for many years and have experience tutoring subjects such as English, math, phonics and various other subjects. I have also worked as an associate teacher implementing language arts programs and math intervention programs for students K-6. My background running these intervention programs has made me realize the benefits of tutoring and intervention based practices which enable students to excel and learn the specific subject they are struggling with.

Phonics

Working with K-2nd grade as an associate teacher has given me the opportunity to work on phonics which are the building blocks to reading. Young children need to understand the sounds of letters in order to move on to reading 3-4 letter words and beyond. Helping with the implementation of a language arts program, I worked on various phonics activities with young kids in order to help them read in the long run.
