Hello Everyone,

To help students, I use an extensive background in Theatre to make learning more engaging. As a Mom of 26 year old twin sons' with autism, I have an extensive background in being patient.

Teaching theatre encompasses the major components of Language Arts: comprehension, analyzing grammar structure, developing emotional intelligence and memory, public speaking, understanding nonverbal communication clues, and writing. While preparing for a production in the theatre, a person may need to explore a diverse number of subjects from physics to cultural anthropology.

While encouraging students to believe in their innate abilities, I have been able to apply this experience when tutoring K through 12 students. We work together to address challenging academic issues by breaking down the issue into smaller more components. Once the issue is seen as more doable to a student, they gain the confidence necessary to overcome their prior obstacle.

Look forward to beginning a conversation with you and your child!

Be Well,
Elizabeth H.

Theater

Theatre has been a part of my life for many years, directing plays across the theatrical canon such as ROMEO AND JULIET, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, Brecht's ANTIGONE, and TO BE YOUNG, GIFTED AND BLACK. As an acting and writing coach, I enjoy bringing others' creativity to light.

Public Speaking

I enjoy coaching those entering the public speaking arena. I like to clarify and illuminate some key techniques to assist my clients in sharing their ideas in both informative and persuasive speeches. Through my experience teaching in the American Theatre for over twenty years I've helped many business, science, and others students from diverse backgrounds develop and improve their ability to speak and engage in public.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

In 1997, I heard the words that parents really don't want to hear from a pediatrician, "I think your child is autistic". Diagnosed with mild/moderate autism, my twins boys are now 17 and our family is enjoying life. My husband and I learned how to teach our children from listening to other parents, teachers, aides, workshop leaders and coaches; and I combine that knowledge with my own professional ability to teach, to help students with their academic studies.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She worked well with my boys and brought them out of their shell so that they could actively participate. She had a plan of action and a high level of knowledge. I would definitely hire her again.

Ray, 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Patient and knows how to speak to kids

So we learned how our kids learn. Our kids are visual learners and just need to make that adjustment when teaching them. Looking forward to seeing our kids grow from this and excel at math now. Thank you for opening up our eyes.

Extremely knowledgeable and very supportive tutor

Elizabeth is an amazing tutor for my children. She is able to make them comfortable and engage to learn different ways to write and the real purpose for writing. I have recommended her my friends and will continue to do so.

Very patient and know exactly what area of help for my daughter

She is amazing. She has done whatever my daughter needed in the first session. Definitely. I will continue to use her as a regular basis tutor for my two kids. My daughter likes her so much. She even says that she is the best tutor so far. She is so patient and gets to every detail in every step of a lesson. I hope everything will work well with my daughter in the future. Thanks Elizabeth. I am so glad that I found you.

Elizabeth was a breath of fresh air. She was extremely engaging, and seems to be a good fit for my children. She appears to be very knowledgeable and well versed. My children liked her a lot, and are looking forward to beginning their academic journey with her.

Elizabeth H. You Raise Me Up!

I am an international student who is studying California institute of the arts and now I will transfer to NYU Tisch school. As an actor, I was so frustrated my accent. Primarily, I just wanted to find a tutor to take accent reduction class. I never thought of doing like what I am doing now. But, Elizabeth H. changed that all. She is a great teacher for acting, pronouncing and singing. I just got the audition for NYU graduate. After the audition, the auditioner was shocked by how I could do perfect english monologues in a short time. I really really want to thank Elizabeth H. I am proud of her. Maybe this review like an advertisement, but I just want to say what I learned from her. Not only pronunciation, but also acting and arts work. So improvement is easy with a fatastic teacher and efforts. You Raise Me Up!
