About Elisheva


Bio

My name is Elisheva G. and I am excited and passionate about helping students understand math (and other subjects too!) I grew up in Atlanta, GA, received my Master's in Special Education from Grand Canyon University and got certified through the state of GA in all core subject areas for special ed.

My name is Elisheva G. and I am excited and passionate about helping students understand math (and other subjects too!) I grew up in Atlanta, GA, received my Master's in Special Education from Grand Canyon University and got certified through the state of GA in all core subject areas for special ed. I immediately began working at Briarlake Elementary School, a top public school in GA. I taught students with learning disabilities, Dyslexia, attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD), mild intellectual disability, autism, speech impairment, other health impairment and severe developmental delay. Being the case-manager meant that in addition to teaching, I developed IEPs and collaborated with regular education teachers and parents. In addition, I have been tutoring students for the past 6-7 years and I love it!

Part of the reason I enjoy tutoring so much is that I remember clearly what it was like to be a student and not understand what the teacher was saying. I understand what students can go through and I remember what my good teachers did to help me gain mastery over the material in a stress-free, exciting way. I still recall the joy that I experienced when I succeeded and I want as many others to feel that too!

Since I was a child, I always loved math. I excelled in that area and thoroughly enjoyed it. As part of my Master's in Special Education, we learned multiple methods of teaching math and even learned how to teach basic arithmetic, like 1+1, to students with disabilities who simply don't get it! As I advanced through the course, I found it fascinating how you can teach algebra using manipulatives too! I decided to get certified in math and received GA certification in Sp. Ed. Math Cognitive Level (P-5, 4-8), as well as Middle Grades Math. I have been able to practice what I have learned with many different students and enabled them all to make progress in math!

Others tell me that what makes me such a great special needs teacher is my patience. I always try my best to be sensitive and not let the

I have 2 years of experience teaching special education in an inclusion environment and 6-7 years of tutoring experience. My education has taught me how to teach a child from the very beginning or from wherever he is at.

I am a certified special education teacher who has successfully helped students learn appropriate study skills.

Patient, flexible, and encouraging tutor

Our 9 y/o daughter has been working with Ms. Elisheva for 12 sessions and we LOVE her. Already, in this relatively short period of time, we have seen our daughter grow in both areas of reading and math. Our daughter has special needs therefore learning can bring challenges and take repetition/time for concepts to be understood. Ms. Elisheva has a tremendous amount of patience and does not rush, yet approaches each lesson with a clear agenda that gets fulfilled each time (without being sidetracked by our daughter’s diversion attempts toward casual conversation!). She is clear in her communication and tutors with integrity and fairness, and has asked appropriate questions to understand our daughter in ways that facilitate learning. Ms. Elisheva is consistently supportive and encouraging, and established the ability for the lessons to be almost fully independent early on, without requiring an adult to be involved. One of the characteristics we appreciate most is her ability to be flexible and switch gears mid-lesson to see if a different learning style works better. This speaks to her commitment to teach in ways that are effective for individual learning needs. All in all, Ms. Elisheva is an incredibly effective tutor and our daughter enjoys her hour-long sessions with her.

Energetic, patient and a great online tutor.

We have been using Ms.Elisheva's tutoring service for my 8 year old recently. She is very dedicated, attentive and constantly tries to figure out how to improvise, as online tutoring is never an easy matter. In the few sessions we had, we have seen improvements in our son's reading skill. He still has a long way to go, but we are happy that we have Ms.Elisheva there to help. She also listens to our concerns/feedback after each session, and figures out or suggests ways to improve. Due to the COVID situation, having a good tutor who can handle students via online is essential. She also definitely knows her materials and has the 'youthful' energy with her, and this is especially helpful for my son, who needs a tutor that would keep his interest up during the sessions. Overall, we are very pleased. Thank you.
