About Elissa

I majored in English Education. As nerdy as it sounds I love everything about English, Language Arts and Literature. I want to help you enjoy "English" while giving you the tools you need to meet your goals. I have a great sense of humor and get along with all kinds of people. One of my greatest strengths is customer service. It is important to me to do a great job as your teacher and tutor.

I have experience teaching middle school and high school English, Language Arts, Grammar, Writing, Speech and Literature. I have tutored students in the subject of English and tutored test preparation for ACT, SAT and GED. One thing I love about tutoring is getting to know students to find out which learning styles are the best match. I think it's important to provide individual, person centered services because learning should be productive and fun!

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English Education and experience teaching middle school and high school. I also have experience teaching Special Education. I develop person-centered, individual lesson plans. I provide excellent customer service.

Please contact me if you want to know more about me, my tutoring style or experience as an educator. We can start scheduling sessions right away!
