About Elise

I am currently a Middle School Math teacher in Wake County. I currently teach 7th grade, but have taught 8th grade math and Math I for 3yrs prior to now. I have been teaching 6yrs with certification in Middle school Math and Science. I have also volunteered after school to tutor my students and for school programs. In the past, I have worked for Sylvan before moving back to Wake County. I love the one-on-one experience tutoring gives and watching a student grow and gain greater understanding of math concepts.

I grew up in Wake county graduating from Millbrook High School. I graduated from NC State University with a degree in Electrical Engineering. After working in the private sector for about 10yrs, I entered the teaching profession with a degree in Middle Grades Math from UNC-Greensboro. It has been a rewarding change that I treasure each day.

As a teacher, I am familiar with the Wake County curriculum and Common Core standards. I continually work with my students to build confidence in their math abilities. I work not only on skills and strategies to solve problems, but test taking skills and organization.

I continually work with students every year to develop study strategies, vocabulary skills, and organization. I love seeing an increase in confidence as students become more prepared for the challenges faced by school.

I understand math is not everyone's favorite subject, but I look forward to passing on my love of math to you. I am free in the afternoon and evening throughout the week in person and online. I look forward to working with you!

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra for the past 3 yrs as Common Core Math 1 and 8th grade math. Algebra is one of my favorite subjects to teach and one of my strengths. There are multiple ways to solve each problem, so as a tutor it is important to support students in their thought process and encourage their creativity.

Elementary Math

As a middle school math teacher, we revisit a lot of elementary concepts for review and expansion. I also worked with Elementary age students while working at Sylvan Learning Center prior to teaching.

Study Skills

As a middle school teacher for the past 6 years, a large part of my job is working on Study Skills. I teach students how to organize their notebooks, study for tests and keep their assignments organized. Study Skills are an important aspect of staying successful throughout the school year.
