About Elena

My name is Elena and I have been teaching students for over three years. I taught creative writing to primary school students in Singapore for two years. While in Singapore, I also taught a kindergarten class and pre-K class. I worked with the students to improve their reading and writing skills and did so successfully. After Singapore, I moved to Los Angeles where I have been working as an ESL instructor and private tutor for high school students as well as elementary students.

All of my students have a varying degree of English understanding. My experience has been working with Chinese students with very little to some English understanding. I also work with ESL students on their college applications and assist them on their essays.
I have also successfully tutored students for the ISEE exam. 100% of my students have gone on to the schools they wanted to attend after studying for this test with me. I love working with students and helping them to achieve their goals!

Feel free to contact me anytime! I look forward to working with you and am there for you every step of the way. I have experience in the arts as well, so if you are interested in learning about writing or storytelling I would be thrilled to work with you on that. I am happy to answer any questions you have.

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.

Film

I am qualified to tutor in the subject of film as I have a Bachelor's in Film Studies from University of Tulsa where I made several short films and graduated due to my excellent work. I have worked various film production jobs and understand how my knowledge applies to the industry. I also have my MFA from NYU in dramatic writing so not only do I understand how a film is made, I know what it takes to create a story.

Phonics

I am qualified to teach phonics as during the two years I taught in Singapore I taught phonics to my kindergarten class. Each class we went over the sounds of letters and combinations of letters. I currently teach phonics to my ESL students.

Reading

I have worked with students ranging from kindergarten to high school in improving and gaining confidence in reading. I currently work as an ESL instructor for high school students and worked with kindergarten and primary aged students for two years at an enrichment school in Singapore.

Writing

I have extensive experience teaching writing to kids ranging from kindergarten to high school. I hold a master's degree in writing as well.
