About Elena

I attended school in Italy and France finishing up in Spain where I took graduate studies at Ciudad Universitaria. While receiving my Masters in Spanish literature at Boston College I tutored undergraduate students in Spanish. I also taught English to young children (ages 7-10) while in Madrid.

I have taught adult classes in Italian and French and lived in both Italy and Spain.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Spanish

I went to school in Spain and have been tutoring Spanish for seven years. I have a Masters Degree from Boston College in Spanish literature and history.

World History

I majored in history until I spent my junior year in college in Spain. History, however, has always been my first and lasting scholastic favorite. I always kept up with history courses and received an M.A. In Spanish literature and history.
