About Elyse

Hello! I'm honored that you've taken the time to consider me as a tutor, and I'd like to make it worth your while.

I have experience tutoring and caring for my five siblings, and I've taken jobs with children as young as 2 years old. I have experience with live-in care and tutoring for twin boys both here and overseas. I love to tutor middle and high school students, and I have a lot of experience tutoring core subjects from fifth through twelfth grade, including volunteer, office-hours-style tutoring and personal, one-on-one tutoring.

I am easily adaptable to different personalities and learning styles and I pride myself on patience. I have high marks in all courses and I'm excited to share that knowledge with you. I'm ready and willing to tutor both in-class tests and standardized exams (excluding GED). I received excellent scores in all high school and college classes, including eight foreign-language credits and electives such as Civic Leadership and Phonetics in high school, and a 3.8 GPA, the highest available academic scholarship, and a leadership scholarship in college.

I have college-level experience in many subjects including English, Biology, Environmental Science, Calculus and basic Math, American History, World History, American Government, Sociology, Philosophy, Art, Graphic Design, and Psychology.

I offer a free consultation prior to any session and offer a full refund if you're not satisfied with my tutoring session. I am available to schedule at the last minute and you can cancel up to 2 hours before our session begins.

I'm an award-winning writer with near-perfect scores on the writing portion of the SAT (not to mention an avid reader), and I'm incredibly excited to share my love of the written word with the budding reader, essayist, or creative writer. I have multiple creative and non-fiction awards and acknowledgements from sources including the PA News Media Association. I have an average grade of 4.0 in the 9 English classes I have at the college level thus far. I have 3+ years of experience working with college level essayists on improving their papers at Wilkes University.

I love to learn and want you to love it as well. I can't wait to work with you!

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.

English

I am a junior English major with more than three years of college-level English and Literature experience, as well as more than three years of writing and tutoring experience in this field.

Vocabulary

I have an excellent personal vocabulary, with my estimated score placing me in the top 0.012% of native English speakers. I have a background in both German and Latin, with some experience in Greek, giving me an excellent base to determine the meanings of words I don't know without requiring a dictionary. I would be happy to teach my methods of interpreting unknown words to any student.

Writing

I have a perfect score on the writing multiple choice section of the SAT. I have been editing college-level writing for three years now, and have an average of 4.0 in all writing-based courses.
