About Elizabeth

I have ALWAYS been a tutor or trainer no matter where I am, even if I wasn't being paid. It's something I do instinctively.

In college, I tutored students at the high school and college level in Biology, Chemistry, and Philosophy. I especially enjoy one-on-one tutoring because I can make the time to learn about your child's interests and hobbies, which allows me to give better examples when teaching difficult concepts. Rather than looking at "X's and Y's" we can talk about soccer balls and footballs or any other combination that helps them see in their own way the idea they've been struggling to understand. By doing this and assessing study habits and learning styles, I have had great success, increasing most students scores by two letter grades.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Biology-Chemistry from Immaculata University (cum laude) and a Masters degree in Bioethics from Case Western Reserve University. In college, I finished a rigorous pre-med curriculum, a minor in Philosophy, and Honors-level liberal arts coursework in History, English, and Theology. I pursued a Master's degree in the field of Bioethics because it combined my interests in philosophy and the sciences.

After working for several years in the field of research support, I am now staying home with my daughter and looking for flexible ways to earn income and still share all the great knowledge I gained in school.

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.

Logic

I received a 100% grade in my college-level Logic course without attending lectures (which was an option specifically given by the professor). I have excelled with Logic problems since I was a child. I am confident I have the subject matter expertise to tutor in this course up to the college level.

Microsoft Access

I completed a three day course to learn how to use Access 2007. I am also comfortable using Access versions 2003 and 2010. In my professional career, I developed a modest but complicated Access database used to track hundreds of research and funding applications for nearly 75 people. I am comfortable explaining table relationships and the differences between the four most commonly used components: tables, queries, forms, and reports.

I still own the workbooks and accompanying CD's for the three day Access course.

Microsoft Outlook

Prior to my recent move, I worked for four years in an administrative capacity which required the use of Outlook every day. I am comfortable explaining how to use the email, calendar, contacts, and tasks sections of Outlook. I can tutor individuals using Outlook versions 2003 through 2010.

Microsoft Windows

I have daily professional and personal experience using the Windows platform. I have been a Windows user for 15 years. I am comfortable tutoring users in platform versions leading up to Windows Vista. I am not, at this time able to tutor Windows 7 users.
