About Elizabeth

I remember the feeling of sitting in a classroom and not understanding what the teacher was telling me. I had changed schools and gone from a straight A student to a girl who was falling behind. He wouldn't slow down, and I didn't know how to speed up.

I was scared and frustrated. I was on my own. Out of desperation I started to develop unique ways of understanding the how's and why's of reading and writing. In the process, I fell in love with learning, eventually going on to earn a degree with Distinction (Magna Cum Laude) in English/Literature. I have worked as a Public Relations professional, concentrating in writing and editing.

I am interested helping students learn the process of literary analysis and the science of writing well. Anyone who can think can succeed. The trick is getting students to organize and communicate their unique observations effectively. This requires a mastery of grammar and knowledge of literary themes and structures. I am happy to meet one-on-one to provide guidance, exercises and learning support to any student struggling to find his or her inner-scholar.

As someone who had to learn by making my own connections, I understand that mastery isn't one-size-fits-all. When a student seeks tutoring it is because the traditional methods of teaching are not working. He or she does not need the same explanation repeated. I will work with a student until we find a way to understand clearly both the challenge and possible solutions. My approach is to help the student develop reading and writing tools that will last a lifetime rather rote learning.

I would love to hear from any student who is struggling with reading and writing. Together we can build a foundation that will last a lifetime. There is nothing more important than understanding that you have something to say and knowing how to communicate it.
