I needed some last-minute help with a paper and Elizabeth was able to get me in within a day. She helped me talk out some ideas for a close reading of a poem. I will definitely seek her out again.Genevieve, 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a stellar AP literature teacher. I had Elizabeth review my daughter's book analysis report for The Kite Runner, and she was extremely helpful in explaining how to conduct a deep analysis. My daughter is very happy with the book analysis and feels she now understands it better.Rifa, 2 lessons with Elizabeth

On very short notice, Elizabeth met with my daughter to help her come up with a solid thesis for a paper on The Great Gatsby. My daughter had a very rough idea about what she wanted to focus on for the paper, and Elizabeth discussed facets of the book to help her sharpen her thesis. Elizabeth is easy to talk to and it was a productive lesson. My daughter was ready to start writing right away.Maria, 1 lesson with Elizabeth
