About Elaine

Teaching is who I am. I believe we are all in a process of learning throughout our lives. I have over 25 years of teaching experience and have taught from pre school up through college levels, which includes adults.

I have two professions, Social Work and Education. These two area backgrounds together give me the best experience of both worlds. The Social Work piece gives me insight to the individual person and helps me to know them as a person. That helps me to find out what type of learner they are and how they learn best. With these two ingredients in the mix, success is almost always the outcome! I am about making students realize SUCCESS!

I enjoy working with students who are having difficulty with math. I like the challenge of breaking down algorithems in order to make it simple and easily understood. My favorite thing is to see the face of a student light up at the moment they realize they have learned and they now, know how to do it!

Last year I went back to school at Villanova University in PA to acquire another certification in TESOL/TESL/TEFL. I had the opportunity to live in Africa for seven years and I wanted to be able to help students who need to learn English as a second language.

Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions you might have. I usually come to the home or meet at a library to work with students one on one for an hour. I can also provide practice work for students if needed. I look forward to working with you. No pressure!
