About Elisabeth

I have been teaching in CT for 10 years. I am presently a Kindergarten teacher. I have taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade as well. I currently have 2 Bachelors degrees. I have one in Youth Ministry and Adolescent Studies and one in Elementary Education with an emphasis in History. I am currently working on my Masters in Middle School Mathematics Education 5-9 and will soon be certified to teach math in CT up to grade 8.

My current expertise would be working on reading and phonic development but I also have always had a love for math and all things Algebra!

I am currently in school to get a Masters in middle school math education. I have always loved math because of how logical it is. It makes sense. It follows rules and isn't usually open to interpretation.

I have been teaching students how to read at the K-1 level for seven years. I was teaching students higher level reading skills for three years prior to that. I have been teaching kindergarten for four years where phonics begins.

Please let me know if there is anything your child needs help with and we can see if I can help you out!

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.

Elementary Math

I am a K teacher and am getting certified in middle school math.

Handwriting

I teach FUNdations handwriting in Kindergarten and have been teaching it for 4 years. Additionally, I taught handwriting in 1st grade for 3 years. I also taught cursive when I taught 3rd grade for 3 years. Like most things, handwriting is more about taking your time and practice makes perfect.

Phonics

I have been teaching FUNdations phonics in Kindergarten for 4 years. I have also been working with students to teach them different rules of phonics in order to help them reach their goals as a reader. Additionally, I have experience teaching phonics in isolation and in context. I believe a struggling students needs to be taught phonics in both contexts to be successful.
