About Eliza

This past summer I was admitted into the Philadelphia Teaching Fellowship program, where I participated in an intensive six week training program. I taught summer school to rising first graders in North Philadelphia. I worked endlessly to deliver state-aligned instruction, implement behavioral systems to attain 80% mastery in all subject areas, such as literacy, math, writing and reading comprehension. Prior to the fellowship I worked as a substitute teacher in New York. I also hold a certification in guidance counseling from NYU, and currently seeking to further my career as an educator.I will utilize my counseling skills to connect with your child to create goals based on their specific needs. I will apply my expertise in the classroom to keep their academic success top priority. I will communicate effectively with you and your child's teachers, to ensure your child gains ownership of their goals and succeed in the classroom and beyond!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am currently pursuing my masters in special education. I have over two years experiences teaching students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I will implement study aids, create organizational goals, differentiate and simplify instruction.

College Counseling

I hold a school counseling degree from NYU. I have aided students with college selection, completing The Common Application, writing college essays, prioritizing deadlines, time management, SAT/ACT testing tactics and applying for financial aid.

Special Needs

I have worked in a special education classroom, and I am currently pursuing my masters in special education. Experience has included teaching students displaying dyslexia, ADHD, autism, emotional challenges and physical difficulties. I have the skills to differentiate instruction by breaking material down in a more concise and specific way to meet students specific needs.

Study Skills

I have taught in schools for over 2 years, and this past school year I worked extensively in an 8th grade special education classroom. I worked with students to make material "sticky" and fun! Students were able to memorize the important material and increase their performance on tests. I also taught one on one instruction with students displaying attention difficulties.
