About Elizabeth

I have been teaching Language Arts for the past seven years in Virginia. My husband and I just moved to Colorado, and I'm excited about continuing my career in education. I have a B.A. in English from James Madison University and a Masters in Education from George Mason University. I am dually endorsed in Language Arts grades 6-12 and Visual Arts preK-12. I've taught middle school English for the past seven years and also have taught 10th grade summer school English. I've also had the opportunity to teach ESOL Science and History. I was an AVID (Achievement Via Individual Determination) teacher for one year too, teaching 8th grade students study and organizational skills for college readiness. I have experience tutoring English with all ages of students from Kindergarten to 12th grade.

I enjoy tutoring since it gives me the opportunity to really work with students one on one in order to strengthen their skills to ensure academic success.

I have a broad background in teaching and tutoring English. I have taught struggling readers as well as gifted students, and I have a variety of approaches to teaching vocabulary and writing that fits the individual needs of each child.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime to schedule a meeting for tutoring. I look forward to possibly working with your child to meet his or her academic goals!

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.

Handwriting

I have tutored 2nd grade handwriting. Although script is no longer really taught in schools anymore (as a standard of learning for standardized tests), I have worked with students who needed help with their handwriting in regards to upper and lower case letters for print and script.

SOL

I have seven years of experience working in public schools preparing for middle school and 10th grade SOLs. I've taught test taking strategies and all criteria listed in the curriculum guide to ensure success. Every year, my student pass rate for Language Arts has exceeded 93%.
