About Elizabeth

I have had the opportunity to teach children and adults throughout my career. I have learned to tailor my teaching skills to the students and their abilities and goals. I have had a very good success rate teaching students who took the NYS Regents Exams and NYS Proficiency Exams in Spanish. I enjoy seeing their progress and enthusiasm as they learn the language and begin to form an appreciation for the Spanish speaking culture.

I have had several years experience teaching people whose first language is not English. This is also very rewarding. I have found that those students have a sincere desire to learn the language with the hopes of improving the quality of life and becoming employable in the USA.

Teaching in general is very rewarding to me and I have enjoyed every minute of it! I look forward to teaching either English or Spanish to those who wish to break down language barriers that may have been prohibiting them from following dreams or reaching goals.

Approved subjects
