Bio

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.

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.

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.

Excellent tutoring experience.

As expected, the first lesson was a process of Elizabeth discovering my current level as a student (beginner) and me explaining to her what I hoped to achieve through these sessions. I very much appreciated her feedback about my goals and was impressed with her knowledge of the language and ability to gauge how reasonable my expectation are. I'm confident that Elizabeth has the skills to help me achieve my goals and look forward to future tutoring sessions.

Build Confidence

Elizabeth allows the student to move at her own pace without skipping anything, and uses language and enough repetition to build confidence.

Gifted and Patient Tutor

Elizabeth has been working with my daughter for about 5 weeks with her Algebra II studies. In this short amount of time, Elizabeth has been able to review and reinforce the material presented in the classroom, greatly increasing my daughter's understanding and fluency with the material. Her grades have improved and my daughter's confidence in her math abilities has returned. Elizabeth is very friendly, pleasant, and approachable which put my daughter immediately at ease. We are thrilled to be able to take advantage of Elizabeth's gifts as a tutor. Can't recommend her highly enough!

Approachable, reliable and patient

Elizabeth is working with our rising 8th grader on his summer math packets and other supplemental algebra work. Our son looks forward to his time with her each week, and she has definitely boosted his math confidence. It is great for me to have help keeping him on track with his summer work. I also don't have to worry that he is developing bad math habits. Finally, we are thrilled that she is also a Spanish tutor and know we will be calling on her for Spanish help once the school year starts.

Very Engaging, Great Tutor

Elizabeth is an excellent instructor! She is easy to communicate with and makes the class enjoyable. My daughter was having a little bit of trouble in high school level Spanish 4, so we came to her for help. She not only helped my daughter improve her grade in the class, but also has given her a more in depth understanding of the language itself. My daughter has learned a lot and we would highly recommend Elizabeth.

Great Tutor

Elizabeth has been an excellent Spanish tutor for my daughter. My daughter's grades and attitude toward class have improved significantly since Elizabeth started tutoring her. It's great to have a tutor who listens to my daughter's concerns and targets the lessons to address them and fit into the school's curriculum. We wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth for Spanish tutoring.

Goes the extra mile and really works hard to support our son.

Highly recommended. We rely on Elizabeth to help our son with pre-calculus. She's extremely easy to work with and always responds promptly. Most importantly, Elizabeth has been very flexible in working with us to target the lessons to the materials and book sections we need him to focus on.
