About Elizabeth

I have over ten years of teaching (K-8) and tutoring (K-12) experience. I am a former fourth grade teacher at Cranbrook Educational Community and have been a long term guest teacher as some of Oakland county's best schools in Troy and Rochester Community Schools. I have tutored students in reading and writing who have excelled in these areas and have often tutored their siblings due to my success.

I have experience helping high school students in reading and writing and in preparation for the ACT/SAT testing series in these areas. I have a Bachelor's degree in Journalism, Elementary Education (with majors in Language Arts and Social Studies and a minor in Linguistics) and am a proficient writer myself as well as an excellent teacher. I motivate my students to do their personal best and love tutoring because I can develop a unique course of action for each student, work one-on-one to see amazing results, and develop a partnership with parents. My students often stay in touch with me for many years after our sessions have ended. I am honored to be a part of their academic success.

I have a Master's in Reading and Language Arts and a Bachelors in Journalism. I have a solid grasp of the Common Core benchmarks and expectations, current Visible Thinking Strategies, thesis and paragraph development, reading strategies and an understanding of what it takes to be a good independent reader and writer. My years of experience as a reading and writing coach, teacher, tutor and parent have given me unique insights and skill sets that easily transfer to student progress quickly. I also assign strategies the student can apply at home each week to further their practice independently. These strategies or assignments and progress are reviewed with parents after each session.

I am a positive, professional, and caring individual who you can depend on to see results and motivate your child.

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.

ACT Reading

I have a Master's in Reading and Language Arts. I have been an ACT Reading tutor for several years helping high school students do well on this often difficult section of the test. I help students read for speed and utilize multiple strategies to best answer the test questions that stem from a range of disciplines.

Proofreading

I have 10 years of proofreading and editing experience. In addition to my degree in journalism, I have helped students acquire proofreading skills at all grade levels so that their writing is clear, ready smoothly, utilizes the best word choice, and follows the assigned format and guidelines. I am versed in the APA and MLA citation manuals and am adept at helping my students learn how to strengthen their writing through proofreading.

Reading

I hold a Master's in Reading and Language Arts and a B.S. in Language Arts. I have been a reading tutor for over a decade and my students learn to utilize critical reading strategies that enable them to interact with the text so that they can comprehend the meaning of what they read and respond to the text in ways that demonstrate their comprehension. In addition, I was an elementary school teacher in Oakland County and hold a Michigan teaching endorsement as a Reading Specialist.

SAT Writing

I have tutored high school students in writing for standardized tests for over ten years. I teach the skills and writing strategies best used to respond to a prompt that is most often a persuasive piece. I am versed in the unique expectations of the writing component of the SAT and have a degree in journalism and a Masters degree in Reading and Language Arts. The students I have tutored have all been very successful writers in college.

Writing

I hold a Master's in Reading and Language Arts and have been a writing coach for over a decade. I have helped numerous students from all grades become amazing writers. I am adept at using Visible Thinking Strategies and the writing process to enable students to become proficient and confident writers in every style from persuasive essays to informative to fictional story writing. I teach the art of writing along with the mechanics to make it all come together smoothly and effectively including tutoring in SAT writing prep and college application essay writing. My students do very well after working with me and take the skills they have acquired to their next academic level.
