About Elizabeth

Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I am an elementary teacher who is seeking time to work with students who are in need of that little extra coaching time to push them to their individual goals in education. I have worked as a public school teacher for seven years, helping my students be successful in and out of the classroom. I have my degree in Elementary Education so I am able to help students in K-6 in all subject areas that they may be struggling in. I love learning because it opens doors to places we never thought possible before.

I am lucky enough to say that I have also taught abroad and just returned from a year stay in southern China in January of 2016. While teaching in China, I was explicitly an English as a Second Language Teacher so I specialized in phonics instruction, vocabulary acquisition and spoken communication skills. I also offered several test prep courses for students who were preparing to enter university. While in China, I was also fortunate enough to do in home, private tutoring for families based on each child's language needs.

Teaching math can be so much fun! Math is the one subject that everyone can understand, if given the proper tools and strategies to attach problems. I am familiar with Common Core and the new standards in math students are expected to be able to demonstrate.

Language Arts is a way to express our souls! Writing and reading are the best ways to show creativity, problem solve and think critically about the world around us. While working in the public schools of MD, reading instruction was a large element of my daily procedure.

I am an excellent tutor when it comes to the Common Core because it is the map teachers must use daily when deciding on instructional directions. The Common Core, although daunting at first, is helping to give students the skill sets they need to move forward in the 21st Century.

I am an excellent K-6th tutor because this area is what my teaching certificate focuses on.

I look forward to working with students and parents who are eager to work towards big goals. Learning to love learning is a life long battle for some, but with the right attitude and well planned activities, tutoring can be an enjoyable and beneficial experience for students.
