About Liz

I have been successfully tutoring elementary school students in all subject areas for the last 9 years. I have also home schooled both of my children for the past 5 years, so I would consider myself a teacher, even if not in a traditional school environment. I would definitely say I was born to be a teacher. My greatest joy besides my family, is working with children.

I enjoy not only helping students be their very best, but making the process of learning as fun and interesting as possible. I believe hands on, visual learning along with manipulatives and supportive materials is the way most students learn best. As much as possible, I try to take students away from worksheets and create a fun, interactive, and engaging learning environment. In my experience, this is the best way to help students achieve mastery in challenging areas by helping them build their critical thinking skills and confidence. I am a great believer in the quote from Ben Franklin, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."

I have tutored students with a wide range of needs including ADHD and ESOL. Some of my students have been with me for a few years. I am also working with younger siblings of former students. Most of my students come from both current and former student referrals.
I will work closely with you to set goals, and measure their progress. If you are looking for caring, personalized one on one teaching experience for your child, I think you will be very happy with the services I can provide to your family.

I have been tutoring elementary Language Arts for 9 years. I have also home schooled my own children in all subjects for the past 5 years.

First and foremost, I have a great love of education and working with children. I have been tutoring elementary school aged children for the past 9 years. I have also home schooled my children during the majority of their elementary education. I have a vast amount of supporting educational resources and materials in all subjects to complement the student's learning experience. I also offer test prep for the Florida standardized tests in math, reading, writing, and science.

I would love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your child's needs. At his time, I currently only tutor from my home. Please call me to set up a convenient lesson time or with any questions you might have. I look forward to working with your family.

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.

Common Core

I have tutored elementary-aged children for the past nine years in all subjects, adapting to the Common Core standards in both math and reading. I believe the Common Core is helpful in building critical thinking skills in young children, which is also the crux of the tutoring method I use. Early development of critical thinking skills is crucial to a student's success.

Handwriting

I utilize the "Handwriting Without Tears" curriculum and corresponding workbooks.

Spelling

I will work with your student to not only correctly spell vocabulary words, but to understand their meaning and use each word in a sentence. The final assignment will be to complete a fill in the blanks sentence worksheet.
