About Elizabeth


Bio

There is always more than one way to solve a math problem! As a former math teacher with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Stanford and a Master's degree in Teaching from American, I know that there are infinite ways to approach math problems. I also know that exploring many methods is the best way to build conceptual understanding of math.

There is always more than one way to solve a math problem! As a former math teacher with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Stanford and a Master's degree in Teaching from American, I know that there are infinite ways to approach math problems. I also know that exploring many methods is the best way to build conceptual understanding of math.

In many math classrooms today, teachers show their students one way to solve a problem, and then the students simply mimic a series of steps. This approach does not promote conceptual understanding! Students need to be able to think critically and creatively when they face a new problem. They need to be challenged with rich problems, while being provided with the tools to tackle those problems with creativity and confidence.

With several years of experience teaching math and tutoring, I know how to help students build both their conceptual understanding of mathematics and their confidence in problem solving. Most of my experience both tutoring and teaching in the classroom was with high school or middle school subjects; however, I can also tutor in more advanced subjects like Calculus, Linear Algebra, etc., as I studied math in college. Whatever the course, I will not just teach you more than one way; I will push you to discover many of your own!

Beth is a wonderful tutor.

She tutored me in Algebra II. Because of her, I did better than I expected. She explains clearly and makes sure you understand the concept before moving on to another.

Peter, 14 lessons with Elizabeth

Very thoughtful and helpful!

Beth was able to explain math problems in an intuitive, easy-to-follow fashion even when it was her first time seeing the questions. (I brought a list of tough questions and she helped me through them.) When I told her in advance what I wanted to address, she even prepared a helpful handout to go over with me. Incredibly helpful!

Great tutor!

Beth has met with my 8th grade student three times for Geometry tutoring. Each time, she is very professional as well as supportive of my child's efforts. Best of all, my child likes her and feels comfortable working with her. My child has shown improvement in Geometry already. Thank you!

Alex, 22 lessons with Elizabeth

Very understanding!

Pleased with approach method and insightful feedback. Elizabeth also will coordinate efforts with my daughters teachers which will be of great benefit.

Joe, 68 lessons with Elizabeth

Great tutor!

Elizabeth was incredibly helpful in both assisting me with Math and SAT preparation. She gave great insight and explanation for topics I originally had trouble with. I would highly recommend her!

Joyce, 2 lessons with Elizabeth

Great Tutor!

Beth helped me with GRE prep. She is kind and makes you feel comfortable around her. She was always on time for our sessions and each meeting was very helpful. Based off of what I needed help with, she made a plan of what we should review and she answered every question I had very well.
