About Lizzie

I have been serving in higher education and community well more than two decades. I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in various subjects at both junior and senior colleges, from remedial/developmental to advance. I am an educator at heart; as such, I encourage, motivate and facilitate students to become discerning readers and forceful writers across the curriculum. As a life-long learner, I infect others. While inspiring students toward life-long learning, I mentor them to appropriately navigate academic waters; I advocate for my students, while teaching them how to constructively engage with the academic world around them. I continue to return to college campus & tutor privately because I care about students and believe in the academic process.

I find that it's all in the presentation; like a sales person, a teacher is selling knowledge. My students are my customers; I learn their triggers and make it my top priority to unleash and develop in them an insatiable appetite for learning. I have been very successful at going into the community, rounding up those at risk of failing or quitting and creating a vision that they can see themselves a part of. When I present new information to my students, I explore real world applications, metaphors and symbolism in demonstrating the importance of pushing the envelope of achievement. My presentations can be dramatic, humorous or delivered in poetry and song. I have demonstrated to my students my belief in their abilities by helping them realize their academic and professional dreams, attend and succeed at the educational institution of their choice, and by helping them develop their skills and use the English language to communicate, articulate, and to just have fun.

As a seasoned educator, tutoring/teaching since 1986, my background uniquely qualifies me to help you reach your goal: I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Social Science from the college of New Rochelle, a Master of Public Administration degree from Metropolitan College of New York, a Master of English/writing degree from Western Connecticut State University, a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Fairfield University, a Ph.D. in Pastoral Counseling from Jacksonville Seminary.

Finally, I am a critical thinking and writing professional who has been serving multicultural populations and age groups--middle school, high school, college, and adult professionals--with passion for some time. I am confident I can help you achieve your academic and/or professional goal(s)--and have fun while doing it. So, relax, just breathe, and give me a call. Let's reach the finish line together!

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.

Bible Studies

I have been an ordain evangelist for 21 years, and an ordained pastor for 6 years. I have been studying and teaching bible study for decades, and I continue to spend regular time searching the word of God for clarity and understanding. I also have a PhD in Pastoral Counseling, am a licensed Christian Counselor, and these offices require me to continuously advance in studying and teaching biblical principles.
