About Elizabeth

I believe that a good education is essential to one's success later in life and that everyone, no matter what, is entitled to one. Unfortunately, the school system isn't always enough to help a person gain such an education. I am here to help those that seek it. In 2009, I graduated cum laude from CUNY Queens College with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Political Science. After graduation, I attended graduate school at Northeastern University, where I earned a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice, having maintained a GPA of 3.42.

I specialize in 3 inter-realated subject areas: American History, European History, and Government/Politics; I am also qualified to teach grammar. You may be wondering, how someone, who has degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice, is qualified to teach history and grammar. However, I have extensive knowledge in all of these areas. In high school (way back in the early 2000's) I received a 94 on my American History Regents Exam and a 3 on the AP US History test, and in college I never scored lower than an A in any of the history classes that I took (American History 1609-1865, American History 1865-the present, Early Modern Europe, and Modern Europe). As for grammar, I have always had a knack at it, and before deciding on Psychology, I toyed with becoming an English teacher.

In general, I like to talk out the subject with my student, although I do provide an outline of each lesson. I require parents/students to provide me with information regarding the text books used in the classes that they are taking (i.e. book title, author, and edition) so I can prepare an appropriate lesson. In addition, to my session I will assign homework occasionally to make sure that the student and I are on the same page. In return, I will prepare monthly progress reports, so the parent/student can get an idea of how they are doing.

For my grammar students, the first step is always to assess their skills in the subject area. I do this by providing a short test, so I can see which areas will need the most work. These tests will be tailored to the grade level the student has achieved.

Lastly, I require a 5 hour notice of any cancellation, and as long as I receive it I am more than happy to reschedule for a day and time that is convenient to both the student and to me.
