About Elisa

A native of Minnesota, I have graduate degrees from the University of Minnesota and Yale University, and a BA from Macalester College. With a year's worth of experience teaching at a nationally recognized SAT preparation center, I start with an assessment of a student's strengths and weaknesses in order to develop an individualized program that gives students the tools needed to succeed.

Strategy, Knowledge and Motivation are essential to academic readiness. Every student can benefit from knowing the ins and outs of a test and developing good test-taking strategies and study habits. But strategies are not helpful without real knowledge, so I focus on building a base of knowledge. Many students simply need to learn new things in ways that are engaging, accessible and memorable. Most importantly, self-motivation and discipline are indispensable to success in both education and life. Motivation and drive come from figuring out how one's unique talents and passions will contribute to the world.

Along with working as a tutor I also work as an artist and as an instructor at Pfeiffer University. I enjoy running, spending time in nature, and being with my husband and my family.

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.

Econometrics

I have a master in Economics, and my whole thesis was done with Econometric tools. I am on my way to finish a Ph.D. in Applied Economics, and I took classes in Econometrics at a Ph.D. level.
