About Elizabeth

Math and Spanish are in my blood and have been a huge part of my life. When I was in 8th grade I had the opportunity to be selected for an engineering program for Hispanic 7th & 8th graders called "El Ingeniero" which encourages Hispanic kids to enter the science and engineering fields. It was a great experience which led me to obtain my Operations Research & Industrial Engineering degree from Cornell University. It wasn't an easy road to get to because it took lots of hard work and persistence. It made me a better person for it. Since my parents are Ecuadorian, I spoke only Spanish until I went to kindergarten. Then, I became bilingual. My parents always encouraged me to speak, read and write in Spanish. They understood that knowing more than one language would be essential in the future. Spanish is one of the most spoken languages in the US. Throughout my academic and professional careers, I have had the good fortune of having tutors/mentors help me achieve my goals.

I would like the opportunity pay it forward by helping students who are struggling in math and Spanish achieve their goals. It takes hard work but I am willing to do my part for the student's success. I can tutor at your home or meet at an agreed upon location. However for a discounted rate, you can come to my home for your tutoring session. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Algebra 2

I have tutored students in Algebra 1 through Calculus and they have all done well.

Elementary Math

I have successfully tutored students in middle and high school in subjects such as algebra, algebra 2, geometry, pre-calculus and calculus for over 2.5 years. In addition, I believe that my BS degree from Cornell University in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering qualifies me to assist students in elementary math. Lastly, I am a mother of children in elementary school so I am especially interested in helping this age group.
