About ELVIS

I love being a tutor, a one on one teacher. I like to focus on an individual and identify their areas of weakness, as well as what motivates them to study. I have come across students who had bad grades, not because they were not smart enough, but because they were victims of a poor teaching technique. I once read a book titled "Disruptive Class" which asserts that the way we learn is not the way we are taught, and in order for our educational system to be more effective we have to develop a student specific approach, in which every student has a teacher whose methods are specific to the way the student learns. This is why my first order of business when tutoring is to get to know my student's strengths and weaknesses. I try to understand how he/she understands so I can identify the difficulty in his/her method of understanding. I don't believe saying the same thing over and over is an efficient method of teaching. It works sometimes, but I believe it is better to identify what is preventing the student from understanding the first time. Dealing with flaws like this has helped me develop a diligent and meticulous method of tutoring.

I believe my job is done when a student successfully demonstrates equal confidence and knowledge in a given area of study. My satisfaction comes, not from feeling that I did the best I could, but from vicariously experiencing success through the student's achievements. I believe effective communication is the first step to these achievements. For this reason I am always readily available, keeping the lines of communication open at all times, until the student achieves his/her goal. I look forward to being your partner in this journey of success.

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.
