About Elise


Bio

I love seeing students' "I get it!" moments. I currently teach high school English, and I have tutored both independently and for Kaplan in the past. I hold a Bachelor's in English and a Master's in Business; I am certified as a Florida teacher in English (grades 6-12) as well as Business (grades 6-12), with an endorsement in Gifted education. I particularly enjoy working with teens and adults to create a foundation, and then develop depth of understanding.

Tutoring is fun for me because it is one-on-one: figuring out how YOU learn best is great not only for that moment or that subject, but for future learning, as well. Together, we will discover what works best for your goals and learning style. My eye for detail and patterns helps us to see which areas need the most assistance--and why. As long as you truly want to learn and improve, we can get there.

As far as accolades, I was just one point shy of a perfect score for the GRE Verbal section. I have won awards for writing and earned recognition for proofreading, as well. Students often tell me they understand both the content and the structure of literature much better after I have taught them, which is music to a teacher's ears.

I believe that learning--especially overcoming an area of struggle--can be fun, even if it is difficult. I'd love to help you achieve your goals!
