Bio

Your success is my goal. I work with you to expand on the strengths you already have and bridge any gaps we identify. I prefer to work with the books and materials you use in school so you can immediately apply the skills we build together. I do not give you the answers but rather show you how to become self-sufficient and an independent learner. I’ll teach you highly-effective study skills, best practices and how to develop a solid study program. You’ll learn how to plan ahead so you can...

Your success is my goal. I work with you to expand on the strengths you already have and bridge any gaps we identify. I prefer to work with the books and materials you use in school so you can immediately apply the skills we build together. I do not give you the answers but rather show you how to become self-sufficient and an independent learner. I’ll teach you highly-effective study skills, best practices and how to develop a solid study program. You’ll learn how to plan ahead so you can feel confident and relaxed on the day of the test.

I have a Master’s Degree in Engineering and have been a tutor for more than 20 years. I have taught many students at Middle School, High School and College level, including my daughter who has a PhD in Neuroscience and an MBA, both from Stanford.

My subjects include Math and Science, which many students find overwhelming and therefore dislike. I have helped students successfully prepare for all parts of the ACT and SAT exams. Because I work with computers every day, I can help you master Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. We’ll review the basics and also best practices, short cuts as well as tips and tricks. I can teach you Desktop Publishing and Presentation skills.

If you are willing to make the effort I can help you be very successful. The students that succeed are the ones that are willing to make the effort.

Study Skills

My professional background is project management and operations management. Both require attention to detail, seeing the bigger picture, organization, planning, and communication. I have been a tutor for many years and have used this expertise in helping students plan ahead, develop and apply consistent study habits. Often students fail because they are overwhelmed, do not know how to organize their time, plan ahead, or just need someone to help them bridge the knowledge gap. I teach students how to find answers, be self-sufficient and know when to ask for help.

Excellent Teacher!

She is very patient and takes the time to learn the material. My son has ADD and seems to be doing much better in class. He is doing his homework a lot faster as well.

Geeta, 16 lessons with Liz

Geometry lesson

Liz is very patient and has many shortcuts to help her students remember the information needed. Will explain something many times until the student completely understands the concept.

Mary, 1 lesson with Liz

Great Tutor

Liz was great!! My son got to finally understand the basics of chemistry and he feels more confident in class. It was good tutoring that made the difference! I recommend her to everyone.

Maria, 6 lessons with Liz

Professional & knowledgeable

Liz has worked with my 8th grade daughter about 5 times now on algebra. She is reliable, patient, and very knowledgeable. My daughter has good grades, but needs help from time to time with some extra explanations etc of certain math concepts. We had a great tutor last year (no longer tutoring) and are so pleased now to have found Liz. She has great patience and my daughter feels that she has a great way of explaining some of the more difficult concepts in simple ways that she can understand, when she did not pick up straightaway in class. Liz is happy to fit in with our needs - every 2 or 3 weeks - and is easy to contact by text or email, and always lets us know if she is delayed/late. She has also given some great feedback of the lessons from each visit. I would highly recommend her.

Great tutor!

Liz is an outstanding teacher who is able to take a very complicated topic and break it down into very easily understandable concepts. In only a matter of a few days, we were able to organize all the acquired data for a Master's thesis and construct it into visually enhanced charts and graphs. This was accomplished through the use of a very complicated IBM program, which Liz immediately mastered. Moreover, Liz's expertise in the sciences and mathematics allowed for accurate validation of my research results.
