About Elise

Hi,

I am an adjunct professor of ESOL and a TESOL certified ESL instructor. I teach classes of up to 18 students, as well as, one on one tutoring. I enjoy both! With my classes, my students are able to practice their speaking skills, and we have a lot of fun playing games that help increase vocabulary, as well! I love teaching grammar which helps the students understand why I am telling them to pronounce a word a certain way, or where it belongs in a sentence. One on one tutoring is my favorite because I am able to get to know the student and design my lessons to be more specific. Everybody learns in a different way, and at a different rate. and one on one tutoring is perfect for meeting those needs

I help students acclimate to their new surroundings by showing them how to complete simple tasks such as shopping and banking. Life skills are so important and many students are studying English for just that reason. It is a bonus when a student wants to push their academic skills, and I enjoy preparing students for testing if they want to take their education further.

Reading, writing and speaking English is so necessary in order to achieve success in the workplace, and it is one of my goals to see my students reach their full potential.

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.

Ballroom Dancing

I have taught salsa at the beginner and intermediate levels. I can also teach bachata and merengue. I was the assistant to a veteran Latin dance instructor and promoter from Washington, DC. I love to dance and understand how music and dancing can change lives.

ESL/ESOL

I have just received the TEFL Certificate to teach English as a second/other language. Please feel free to give me a call. Thanks!

Praxis

I just had to take the Praxis 1 in order to apply for Graduate School and am happy to report that I passed. I am willing to help you prepare for it as I wish I had had someone to help me!!

Speech

I took speech in college and have had to do quite a bit of public speaking in my life. I had to learn to make eye contact and speak clearly. I will be getting a Master's degree to teach English as a second language.

Study Skills

I went to school as an adult and had to learn how to study all over again. I understand first hand the pressures that go along with having to prepare for and take a test.
