About Elizabeth

Hello! My name is Libby, and I'm an English tutor. I currently teach as a Professor of writing for Grand Rapids Community College in Grand Rapids, MI. I have experience teaching writing classes at the City Colleges of Chicago and DePaul University. I also have graded essays for ETS (the company who produces SAT and GRE tests). I've also worked in a writing center for two years when I was living in Chicago. I have a B.A. in English from UCLA in Los Angeles, CA, and I have a M.A. in Writing and Publishing from DePaul University in Chicago, IL. I enjoy tutoring and working with students because I'm very interested in student success. My main goal is to help you get to where you need to be and to have a fun time doing it. Hello!

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.

Public Speaking

Being a college instructor and a member of the Toastmasters, I believe I am a good candidate to teach public speaking. I have taken classes on public speaking and body language and can teach the importance of body language while public speaking.

Elizabeth was wonderful. She helped me focus and narrow my subject matter. Besides being patient, her expertise in English made the session most productive. Thanks Elizabeth.
