About Elizabeth

I don't remember a time before I tutored. I was homeschooled, and I always loved helping the younger kids in my group with their schoolwork. When I went to a public high school and found out that my school had no tutoring program, I founded one, working for two years as the only available peer tutor at a Virtual Early College. There, I tutored math, science, English, Spanish, and Latin.

I went to Appalachian State University as a Chancellor's Scholar and member of the honors college, and began working for University Tutoring Services in my second semester, tutoring math, art history, biblical studies, Spanish, and Latin. Although I enjoyed that and will always be glad to work with college students, my heart has always been with grade school students, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with them again upon my graduation.

Language has always been my passion. I have studied Spanish since I was about five years old, and Latin since middle school. I studied in Florence, Italy, for a semester, where I worked as a tour guide at Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. My coworkers didn't speak English, so I learned Italian very well.

Although I have experience with a wide variety of subjects, my specialty lies in language and writing. I have a very practical understanding of these subjects, and am always eager to share my love of words with students and dispel the sense of mystery a lot of people feel towards language.

Please feel free to contact me to talk about scheduling lessons or ask questions. I'm happy to talk to students and parents, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Background Check: Passed

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Drawing

I hold a BFA from Appalachian State University in painting and drawing with University and Departmental Honors. For my major, I took more than twelve studio art classes, all of which required significant drawing and four of which were entirely dedicated to that subject, never receiving a lower grade than A-.

As a tutor, I have worked with students ranging from elementary school to college age, including a teaching assistantship in Advanced Painting and Drawing at AppState. I can help with basic concerns of observation, composition, line, and shading, or more advanced questions of contemporary context and symbolism.

Painting

I have extensive experience in both acrylic and oil, encompassing an AP portfolio of oil paintings, two workshops in oil, and five college level classes in painting. I have attended Camac Centre d'Art artists' residency in Marnay-sur-Seine, France, for my painting, and have shown my work in Paris, New York, and North Carolina. My work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the East Coast, at the Louvre Museum in Paris, and in Marnay-sur-Seine, France.

My tutoring experience with painting has been with students ranging from elementary school to adulthood, including a teaching assistantship for the Advanced Painting and Drawing Class at AppState. I am happy to help with basic art principals such as composition and color theory, as well as specific material-related issues or advanced questions of context and interpretation.
