About Elizabeth

I am an experienced teacher and tutor, and I would love to help! I was a classroom teacher for nearly twenty years, and oh, I love helping students learn! It's wonderful to see a child's face light up when that sticky problem becomes easier to solve, when reading becomes a joy, when a difficult concept becomes clear for the first time. I taught students in my fourth-grade classroom during most of my career, and I also had the opportunity to help students in other grade levels as well. I am certified by the Florida Department of Education, specializing in Elementary Education - reading, writing, math, and other subjects. And I can help students with test preparation as well. I have many years of experience in tutoring, too. I taught specialized classes before and after school to help students in grades 3, 4, and 5 achieve success in their individual areas of need in reading, writing, and math. I love being a teacher!

I believe students should experience the joy of learning. I think learning should be fun, too. I taught students in fourth grade for many years, and I also had the opportunity to help students in other grade levels as well. I taught specialized classes before and after school to help students in grades 3, 4, and 5 enrich their skills - and excel - in reading, writing, and math. Among my many areas of expertise, I am very effective at helping students prepare and achieve success in all spectrums of testing. Prior to becoming a teacher, I had an amazing career in journalism. I was an award-winning writer and reporter at the daily newspaper here in Stuart.

I would love to help you with your reading, math, writing, music, language, homework, projects, class assignments, daily lessons, test preparation, or anything else. I love teaching! I am an avid animal lover, and I spend some of my time volunteering at a local sanctuary for rescued cats and kittens. I've also volunteered at the wildlife hospital, where I had the opportunity to work with Eagles, pelicans, squirrels, bunnies, and other wildlife. I also enjoy music, especially the saxophone and piano. I play the alto saxophone with the Stuart Community Concert Band. Please let me know if I can be of assistance in any way! I would love to help!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am an experienced classroom teacher and tutor, and I would love to help you with reading, writing, math, language, test preparation, and any other subjects and needs. I was a classroom teacher with the Martin County School District for nearly twenty years, and oh, I love to help children learn! I am certified by the Florida Department of Education, specializing in Elementary Education - reading, math, writing, language, and other subjects. I taught my wonderful third- and fourth-grade classes for most of my teaching career, and I also had the opportunity to help children in all other grade levels during our specialized before- and after-school tutorials. In addition, I taught specialized classes in reading, writing, and math to help students achieve success in their individual areas of need. Prior to my teaching career, I was an award-winning writer and reporter at the daily newspaper here in Stuart. Along with my teaching certification (Florida Atlantic University), I also possess a bachelor's degree in journalism/mass communications (St. Cloud State University). In addition to my noted areas of expertise, I am also very effective at helping students with test preparation in all subjects and testing spectrums. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance. I would love to help!

Saxophone

I have been playing the saxophone since I was in the fourth grade, and I started playing the piano even before then. One of my approved subjects is music theory, and with my musical background and experience over the years, I can help students in many areas of the music spectrum - from music theory to performance to reading notes. Music is great for the soul, no matter what age you are.
