I am a passionate, retired, veteran public school teacher and math tutor. My background is in elementary and middle school instruction with an emphasis on mathematics and science. I am currently tutoring students in grades 2-10 up to Algebra 1. I have also taught a college prep mathematics class 050 at Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs.

I delight in coaching my students with logical and practical problem-solving strategies. My true joy comes in feedback about the success my students are experiencing after tutoring with me. I am an optimist who believes every student has the potential to succeed; persistence pays off in the long run for all of my students. I can differentiate my instruction to align with kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learning styles. I also have experience with students who have minor dyslexia issues. I have a 6-hour cancellation policy. I work from my home in north Security just south of the Colorado Springs city limits.

I have my students work with me at a table so we can converse and solve problems together. I prefer that my students show me their syllabi, study guides and/or textbooks so we can focus directly on the areas where the student needs support to make the greatest gains possible. I am willing to prep my students for quizzes and exams if arrangements are made with me in advance. I strongly recommend purchasing a basic calculator for middle school students and for high school students, please buy a graphing calculator for dummies book which matches your child's graphing calculator.

Elaine has been instrumental to our family

Elaine has been instrumental to our family by tutoring my 4th grade grandson. My grandson has been struggling with common core math concepts. Elaine was able to quickly find out his weaknesses and teach him concepts to strength him. My grandson is very appreciative and can not wait for another math session with his tutor.
