About Elena

My name is Elena and I am a native Spanish speaker from Argentina. Regarding my experience in tutoring, I have tutored ESL, Spanish and French for beginners at CSN for three years. Currently, I am working as an instructional assistant at an elementary school level for students with special needs.

I finished a B.A in Spanish with a minor in French. Also, I took translation courses in Argentina and UNLV. In addition, I have an A.A in Hotel Management.
In my spare time, I love exercising with my DVD’s at home. Exercising gives me energy and makes me feel great. Moreover, I enjoy reading mystery books, listening to jazz, classical and soft music. My passion is to travel and to visit interesting places. Among other activities, I like learning.

In my opinion, the key for success is to have patience, persistence and confidence. Therefore, I always encourage students and give them compliments. Every student is unique because they have different learning styles as well as different learning paces. Students appreciate when a tutor understands their needs and desire to succeed.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I tutored English as a Second Language (ESL) at CSN. The majority of the students were Spanish speakers. Since I am bilingual, I was able to explain the differences in English and Spanish grammar, so they could understand better and feel more confident. I also helped them with conversation, writing and reading. They had successful tests too.

French

I have experience tutoring French for high school and beginning French for college for reading, vocabulary and grammar.

Grammar

I have experience in tutoring grammar to students of elementary and high school. Also, I tutored ESL grammar at college level.

Reading

I have expertise in reading for elementary and high school students.

Spanish

I have experience in grammar, conversation and writing for adults and children at all levels.

Special Needs

I have been working for five years as an instructional assistant for special needs children at elementary school level.

Apart from that, I tutor students who need help using hands-on material for example; blocks, fake money, clocks to tell time and flash cards. Also, I use worksheets and white boards which students love.

I am very patient with children and I do my best for them to learn.
