About Elliot


Bio

I’m Elliot! I graduated from Seton Hall University in 2004 with a Bachelors in Communications and a Minor in African-American history. Before going to college I wanted to be a TV/film producer, but by the time I graduated I realized that I wouldn’t be happy unless I was doing something to benefit my community, specifically working with young people.

I’m Elliot! I graduated from Seton Hall University in 2004 with a Bachelors in Communications and a Minor in African-American history. Before going to college I wanted to be a TV/film producer, but by the time I graduated I realized that I wouldn’t be happy unless I was doing something to benefit my community, specifically working with young people. In my experience the best teachers were always open minded and flexible, nonjudgmental people who used a positive, engaging personality and approach to inspire my best effort. This is the same philosophy which I use in my teaching/tutoring.
I am mindful of the need for introducing material in a way that is creative and relevant for you,the student, rather than for me, the tutor. I am flexible and willing to adjust as necessary based on the needs of my student.

I have 6 years experience as a teacher of Social Studies (US/World history, Geography, Gov’t) and Life Skills. For 5 years I was a teacher/behavior specialist at a private special education middle/high school working with students with behavior and emotional issues. I excel at working with students from various backgrounds and ability levels. I always strive to bring positive energy and friendly attitude, but am a stickler for students making the most of our time and motivating them to give their best efforts.

I’ve provided home instruction/tutoring for students in group home and hospital settings for youth experiencing personal crisis but still with responsibilities regarding school instruction.In these settings I tutored not only in Social Studies and history, but also Earth and Physical science, English, Pre/Intermediate Algebra, Algebra I and II.
My goal is to be as helpful as possible, therefore I welcome any suggestions, resources, or feedback students or parents can provide. Feel free to contact me with any questions or schedule a lesson!
