About Elyse

I taught kindergarten, first and second grade in France and West Africa and I taught middle school English as a Foreign language at an International French School. Since returning to the US I have worked for an after school and tutoring company; I tutored struggling students in a myriad of subjects and I currently teach an ESL class to Chinese speakers.

I am currently a full time second grade teacher in Pasadena. I have availability in the evenings and weekends.

I'm looking forward to working with you in the future!

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.


I took care of an autistic toddler for 2 years and completed 40 hours of ABA training and used ABA therapies.

I have been teaching for 5 years and have had autistic students in most of my classes and have successfully supported and encouraged them towards success in the classroom, in participation and class work.

I tutored an autistic middle schooler for one year before moving.

Career Development

I worked for the Gonzaga University Career Center for three years as a career adviser. I helped students apply to jobs and create resumes and cover letters. I participated in many workshops and also led many workshops in interviewing and resume techniques. I also organized and recruited for career fairs.

Common Core

I am currently teaching second grade according to common core standards. I have extensive training and experience in common core for grades K-7.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's degree and passed the CBEST test which qualifies me to be a substitute in the state of California and to pursue my teaching credential. I taught kindergarten and first grade for two years at a private school and I recently finished a temporary, four month subbing position at a private school in Pasadena, CA. I taught second grade in place of a teacher on maternity leave.

I also tutor at risk youth in grades K-5 with Tutoria Tablet company as part of No Child Left Behind.
In addition to tutoring, for three months I worked at an after school program where I tutored students in grades 3-6 in all subjects, including common core.

I have over seven years of experience tutoring elementary school students in various subjects.

Political Science

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Gonzaga University. (2010)
