Every client is unique with different skills, goals and achievement timelines. Tutoring is not about gender, age or current skills, it is about the commitment to achieve. Communication is the key to success in life. Personally and professionally we communicate verbally and in writing. Success is more than communication; it is truly connecting with your audience. My passion is helping you achieve your goals.
As a serial entrepreneur and winner of the First Resort International “Innovator of the Year” award, Elaine combines master's degrees in Communication and Alternative Dispute Resolution with practical application in business. Her first book was published in 2012 and the second book will grace bookshelves in 2013. As the winner of international speech contests and the coach for winners of international speech contests, Elaine knows how to perform and teach others how to duplicate her success by following proven formulas. Her additional credential as World Class Speaking Coach has been achieved by less than 50 individuals throughout the world. Formal education, proven business achievement and status as a published author qualify Elaine as a well-rounded tutor.
As a business teacher of over ten years on the high school, community college and university level, she understands how to assist students in learning and applying their knowledge. As an entrepreneur, Elaine trained and guided employees and fellow entrepreneurs. As a professional speaker, trainer and workshop leader, Elaine has trained hundreds of budding and seasoned business professionals to "get out of their own way" and achieve their goals. As a private coach, Elaine guides the student to develop their own material and present it in the most effective manner for their individual audience, individual style and subject matter. All of this has been accomplished through an interactive and student-focused process where the student progresses at their own pace. Weekly sessions are conducted where progress is measured and students are held accountable for achieving their mutually agreed upon goals and objectives.
Acquiring knowledge is important, but the ability to apply that knowledge to enhance personal and professional lives is essential. Elaine’s focus is to inspire, empower and improve lives. Students are encouraged to tap into their potential.

Elaine is such a positive, motivational tutor for my 14 year old daughter. She is giving her guidance in Life Skills as well as writing, editing and preparing work for speech presentations. My daughter's work with Elaine is priceless, and she will benefit from her tutoring experience now and for all of her academic years ahead.
We highly recommend Elaine and hope our daughter will continue working with her throughout high school!
Thanks Elaine! I leave K's tutoring sessions feeling inspired too.
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.
Implementing the process of combining interests and talent with market viability significantly enhance success. Career development is a very personal process requiring guidance and deep personal introspection on the part of the student.
Once the process is followed in detail, the results for the student increase their productivity, profitability and peace of mind. It is not just being employed, it is thriving in the chosen career.
My trophy/award collection testifies to not only academic degrees but the practical achievement.
Public speaking effectiveness depends on conveying your message in the manner in which the audience prefers to receive it. Matching your content and delivery to your audience enhances connection with them. Implementing the various processes insures your continued success as a speaker. Appearance,body language, vocal variety, and use of the stage also influence effectiveness.
As the winner of International Speech contests as well as coaching several students to win contests, I understand what it takes to help students achieve. I have formal certification as a world class speaking coach plus individual achievement and student achievement complete a full package. Work with a coach who "walks the talk" and helps you duplicate successful results.
