About Elsa

I have 4+ years of tutoring experience, plus an additional 7 years of editing experience, including experience tutoring international students who were just learning English, tutoring students in speech and helping to create resumes and cover letters.

I taught Composition for 2 years at Michigan Tech University while pursing my MS in Rhetoric and Technical Communication. Additionally, I have worked at both Michigan Tech's Writing Center and MDC Kendall Campus's Writing Center as a tutor. I found I derived a deep sense of satisfaction from developing and fostering writing skills in students. Watching students mature as writers and guiding them in that process is rewarding and fun so I have continued to tutor privately.

I like to keep students completely engaged in the tutoring process when working in person so I frequently have students read their own work aloud so that they develop a keen ear for their own voice and for the mistakes they typically make. I am a fan of representing grammatical concepts through visual means and have created many different aids to help students visualize comma use, sentence structure, etc.

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.

Public Speaking

I have tutored students in public speaking at two different tutoring positions I held at colleges in Michigan and Florida. Additionally, I have done a considerable amount of public speaking myself (including a PechaKucha which can be found online). And, finally, I taught public speaking as part of my composition class for 2 years.
