About Liz

Hi there! My name is Liz. I have been a teacher for three years. I have taught Spanish to all grades K-12, high school social studies, and AP English Language. I've been tutoring since I was a student, helping out people of all ranges of capability. During my master's in teaching program, I gained a great deal of classroom knowledge and experience in working with students with learning disabilities. My students made improvements as much as two letter grades after just a few weeks of tutoring once a week.

AP English Language, English as a Second Language experience, advanced English grammar, proofreading, writing process, reading.

Contact me if you are interested in being supported in social studies, Spanish and/or English. I love helping students of all learning types and ability ranges.

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 have a Master of Arts in Teaching. During my program, I was trained to work with students with disabilities. I spent a year working with dozens of students with different IEPs and 504 plans. Many of the students I currently teach have ADHD. I accommodate and differentiate materials for them on a regular basis. I have tutored students with disabilities and seen incredible progress as I give them tools to help them cope with their learning disabilities -- especially ADHD -- and work with them using color coding, flash cards, visual and auditory reinforcement, and kinesthetic learning.

English

I have a Master of Arts in Teaching, and am certified to teach English.

Political Science

My undergraduate degree is in International Relations. This requires a firm foundation in political science domestically and expands to expertise in how various political systems function internationally. Also, I am a certified Social Studies teacher. I teach Global Issues to high school seniors at a college preparatory school.

Religion

My undergraduate degree from Duquesne University is in International Relations, Spanish, and Theology. I am approved to teach religion in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Also, I am a certified social studies teacher, which qualifies me to teach world religions and sociology.

Social Studies

I am a certified social studies teacher (7-12). I have a Master of Arts in Teaching Social Studies. Currently I teach Global Issues to high school juniors and seniors. My BA is in International Relations.
