About Elijah

I have been tutoring students privately in all areas related to the English language for ten years. I specialize in teaching students with learning/reading disabilities, and English as a second language. As someone who scored at 800 on my SAT exam, I am well qualified to help you excel on your exams as well. In particular, improved writing skills and reading comprehension can certainly be quickly and significantly improved with a little time and effort.

For students with learning disabilities, I am certified in the NOW foundation's proven, scientific methodology, which can yield stunning results in a short time period. For this kind of specialized tutoring, however, the hourly rate will be increased. Also, I will only accept serious candidates, willing to work a minimum of 3-5 hours per week.

I scored 800 on my SAT in English, have 5 years experience in TEFL, and I am a published magazine columnist as well.

The traditional phonics system is in fact not only inefficient, but ineffective for a large number of students. It is extremely outdated. As a certified instructor for the NOW foundation, I have access to and a working ability with the most effective, research-based tools available for instruction in phonological awareness.

No matter your specific needs, please don't hesitate to contact me and discuss them. I look forward to helping you on the path to success!

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.
