About Elise

I am a retired teacher who worked in Jefferson County Schools for 31 years. I taught grades 5-6 throughout my career. Since retiring I have substitute taught in grades K-8 and really enjoy working with middle school students. I have a passion for teaching and have a positive connection with students. I have also tutored students who are in ESL programs, have learning disabilities, physical challenges, or have simply needed a little boost to gain some academic confidence. I have strengths in Reading, Writing, Study Skills, basic math understanding, and content comprehension. I have a great deal of patience and have the ability to help students find their strengths in basic subject areas. I look forward to working with you and your child.

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.
