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.

Elena is an excellent tutor. She is very patient with my student and my student learned a lot in the time spent with her. I highly recommend this tutor. My daughter thought she was exceedingly nice and easy to get along with too!
Thank you very much, Elena.
My lesson with Elena flew by. So much to do in so little time. Elena brought of lots of materials to start with as she didn't know my exact level. She was prepared for anything.
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.
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.
I have expertise in reading for elementary and high school students.
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.
