About Elisabeth

Teacher certification only formalized my natural inclination to nurture the inquiring minds of children. I have a patient and realistic approach framed on identifying and assessing each student and topic individually. Student-led and discovery learning methods are augmented by direct instruction as needed to maximize interest and ownership of information being shared. Timeliness, work ethic and neatness are inherent expectations of lessons and quality of character is imparted as mutual respect is formed.

I am NYS certified. My strengths include all topics, including Common Core modules, of elementary programs as well as 7th and 8th grade science. Additional areas of proficiency include writing and biology. It is my greatest desire to organically match my abilities to the educational needs of your child. My life experience has taught me that people will DO what they really want. If your child wants to learn, it will happen. If I am their tutor the quality of learning will be long-lasting and creatively matched to learning style of your unique learner.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am NYS certified in grades 1-6 and middle school science. I have been subbing for 15 years and teaching for five years. My most recent year-long teaching included an inclusion classroom (2nd grade) from where I further fostered ADD/ADHD experience, adding to a prior inclusion classroom (4th grade) experience.

Phonics

I am New York certified to teach grades 1-6 + middle school science.

I have spent countless hours preparing lessons for early readers and have tutored a low, first grade student through phonics instruction once before. As a second grade teacher last year I had many low readers that improved with small group and whole group phonics instruction.
