About Elaine

I enjoy tutoring because I like to interact with individuals and small groups, identify what is causing confusion, and find a way to make the concept understandable. I excel in finding tools and tricks to help students like you understand your lessons and be able to recall what you learned. My job is to make learning easier and less frustrating for you. We will find a way for you to be confident!

I earned my Bachelor of Arts and California Clear Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential with Supplementary Authorization in English from California State University, Sacramento. I am an experience classroom teacher and tutor with over a decade of involvement in education. I have worked with students in all elementary grades and a variety of different learning levels and abilities.

What makes me a great tutor is I have been in your shoes, so I know what it is like to not "get it." When i was in elementary school, I was great in English, but I did NOT like math. I did not understand it, it was intimidating, and I was not good at remembering what I learned. Then, I had a great math teacher who taught math a different way, and all of a sudden, it clicked! Once it clicked, math quickly became one of my favorite subjects.

I am also an excellent English, reading, and writing tutor. My philosophy is being able to read opens up the world. Being a strong reader will help you write, and being a strong writer will help you read. I am a great English tutor because I want to help you understand all the puzzle pieces of reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, etc., work together to make you a better overall learner.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a California Clear Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential with supplementary authorization in English awarded by California State University, Sacramento. I taught sixth grade for three years and am currently a tutor for all ages. As a teacher, I have used a blend of state-adopted curriculum and students’ interests to help struggling individuals meet goals. I have experience developing instructional units from basic skills to complex problems.

Handwriting

I have excellent handwriting myself, and I view handwriting as a physical, fine-motor skill just like typing or playing piano. It takes patience and practice. I have experience teaching printing letters and numbers through my current tutoring position.

Phonics

I have a California Clear Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential with supplementary authorization in English awarded by California State University, Sacramento. I teach phonics as part of my current tutoring position. I am familiar with the phonics program used by the schools in my area through recent substitute teaching.

Writing

I am experienced in tutoring writing with all ages.
