Hello! I am currently a graduate student at St. John's University working on a PhD in English. I currently teach freshman level literature courses as well as physics lab and recitation at St. John's. I am trained by Kaplan and Huntington Learning Center to teach SAT/ACT prep. I have experience tutoring one-on-one, working with small groups of students, and teaching in a classroom. Past students range from kindergarten to college undergraduates. My areas of expertise are physics, math, and SAT tutoring. Through Kaplan Inc. and Kaplan Kids, I was trained to teach SAT classes and to tutor students grades K-8 in English and math. I have also tutored students for state tests, including the ELA, math assessment, social studies, and science. Topics that I have tutored recently include: pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus I, regents physics, AP Physics, college physics, university physics, and college essay writing. In addition to time spent with me, I expect students to do work in between lessons, especially if they are preparing for a specific exam. My teaching methods are centered around helping students gain confidence in themselves as learners and helping students find the learning processes that works best for them.

As a Kaplan tutor and private tutor, I have extensive experience prepping students for New York State tests, including science, math, social studies, and English. My former students range from Kindergarten to college undergraduates.Through Kaplan, I was trained to be a K-8 tutor. The program, called Kaplan Kids, focused on math and reading comprehension skills. The teaching methods used focused on filling holes in past learning experiences, and building on prior knowledge to learn new material.

Patient and thorough

Great first lesson. Explained topic thoroughly, step by step. My daughter has a better understanding of the material and is looking forward to the next session.

Betty, 3 lessons with Elizabeth

Amazing Tutor!

I needed help in college level physics! Elizabeth was patient and kind. She's very knowledgeable about the information and made sure I fully understood the problem before she continued! I would definitely recommend her!

Janisha, 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Excellent command of the material, presents topics well

Liz does a fantastic job breaking physics down for my son, really helping to understand, organize and assimilate the concepts. So far my son has had three sessions and they have all been incredibly productive. Very high marks from us!
