About Elaine

Hello everyone! I am a Graduate student in Linguistics with a focus on ESL, and have a bachelor's degree in Spanish. I studied abroad in Spain for two years. I also have experience teaching ESL in Spain and volunteering in Chicago. I am offering classes in English as a Second/Foreign Language, and Spanish. I can also tutor in beginning French and Italian. I offer private lessons/tutoring and also small group lessons. I am located in the northside of the city of Chicago but am willing to travel depending on the distance :)

I also work with elementary and high school students in all subject areas, especially reading/writing/math. If you or your child need help in any of these areas, I will be more than happy to help with these subject areas as well.

I am SO happy that our session got him up to speed :) He was very quick on picking up the verb conjugations and understanding how the placement of the direct object nouns work. Please let me know if you need any help with Spanish. I am more than happy 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.

Very excellent Tutor

I was SO impressed with Elaine's tutoring. Shes very smart and very keen. Since my 14 year old not only finds difficulty with Spanish, he got behind due to illness, plus, he is at the typical teen stage, so I wasnt sure if much progress could even be made in one lesson but I was pleasantly surprised! He infact did learn alot, and was happy himself about it. When I asked him on a scale of 1 to 10 h
