About Elizabeth

I recently graduated in May with a Master's in Social Work; my major was in casework with a focus on
children and adolescents. Prior to this, I had been a teacher after I completed a Master's in Education.

I have also done private tutoring and was a tutor at the Sylvan Learning Center in West Hartford, CT for grades 1-12. I have tutored high school students in all subject areas and have acted as a liaison between students, parents and teachers (as well as their counselors).

I love the area of teaching and working with students and wanted to further my educational experiences by also focusing on the therapeutic aspect of working with children/adolescents. I believe education is extremely important and thus have continuously worked on my own for further self-improvement. I believe each individual deserves a fair opportunity at receiving the most effective educational experience they can possibly have.

I am dedicated to advocating for students (both children and adolescents)as well as their parents in whatever way possible.

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.

Career Development

I am qualified to tutor in the area of career development, because I have experience doing so in the past. I have tutored high school students through the Board of Education and privately in all subject areas; I have also tutored young adults (ages 18-25), and guided them through the process of career development as well as the actual admissions process.
