About Elisabeth

I've worked in the field of education for the past 11 years- first as a high school English teacher and then as a college writing instructor and tutor of kids ranging in age from 9-17 years old. The concentration of my own education at D'Youville college and UB was English/Education, with a minor in Philosophy, so I have a solid Liberal Arts background.

What I can most help students with is reading fluency, getting their thoughts on paper with greater ease, and improving reading comprehension. However, in teaching and tutoring such a broad range of students (both in age and ability level), I've become very knowledgeable about the NYS curriculum for all grade levels, and I've discovered a lot of great educational resources and websites. So, I say with confidence that I can assist students in better understanding the main concepts in Science, Math, and even Social Studies.

I very much enjoy working with people, and have been successful thus far in developing positive relationships with kids in primary, middle, and high school grade levels, as well as adults. I am laid-back and easy to get along with, but also conscientious and focused in my approach to hard work... so progress can me made and confidence built up.

If you're looking for a highly experienced tutor, please don't hesitate to contact me.
