I achieved a Bachelor of Arts Magna Cum Laude in Psychology. After some years of work experience I went back to graduate school and obtained a Master's degree in Biology with a certificate in Human Nutrition.

Besides being a certified Tutor for English as a Second Language (ESL)with WyzAnt, I am also a certified tutor for ESL with some of the local Libraries. Furthermore, I have been certified by the Florida Literacy Coalition as an ESL/ESOL Tutor. Since the Eighties, I have been a certified USA Government translator from English to Spanish and vice-versa. Additionally, I have published articles in English and have been a Public Speaker for a USA Governmental agency on both languages. I have been in the USA now for over 30 years and I have excellent command of writing, reading and speaking of English. Having learnt English as a second language gives me the advantage of knowing the intricacies and difficulties inherent to this process, which someone that only speaks or always spoken English would not even begin to comprehend.

I have always enjoyed languages and have helped many students, both High School and College Level, to improve their grade average and pass their English and Spanish courses in order to graduate. Most of my students have achieved A's in their coursework.
I also have adult learners that are interested in languages mostly for their careers but also for traveling purposes. I have yet to find a learner that I have not been able to not only help but excel in their learning objectives.

I am also able to help students with many areas in Biology, Biochemistry, Anatomy and Physiology and Nutrition. I am able to help students that speak Spanish and may have problems in learning science in English.

Nutrition

I earned a Masters Degree in Biology with a Certificate in Human Nutrition in 1990 from the University of Bridgeport and have been a Licensed Nutritionist in Florida in private practice for the last 22 years. I have many years of experience in Nutrition Consulting in Wellness Clinics with a focus in assisting clients find better health through natural means. This always involved one-on-one or group counseling, the most direct form of educating. I also have extensive experience in public speaking and addressing groups on a variety of subjects. I have also taught adult education classes for many years in Nutrition and healthy eating habits, having developed my own curriculum for these classes. In the years I have lived in Florida, close to 23, I have had the privilege of working with some of the most noted and recognized physicians in the field of alternative medicine and nutrition in the Tampa Bay area. I humbly consider myself a great communicator and motivator and believe that the field of nutrition is at the forefront in people’s mind and knowledge about this field can benefit a great portion of the population, both personally and in health care settings.

Another great lesson with Elaine!

As always, a lesson with Elaine is fun, personable, and educational. We spend some time in Spanish conversation and then we move into specific areas like vocab, grammar, etc - geared to my ability and learning level.

Alexis, 8 lessons with Elaine

Understanding and detailed

Taught me the foundation of the language and how it is used. She was patient and helped me when I was not understanding the process. Elaine understands both English and Spanish which makes it very helpful to understand the accent.

Joey, 1 lesson with Elaine

Knowledgable and fun

Elaine tutored two of my employees. She took two skeptical people going into this training and transformed them into enthusiastic and highly motivated learners. Being bilingual made her the perfect tutor as it helped her bridge the gap in the learning process. Both employees are very grateful and both are looking forward to their next session.

The way you would expect a tutor to be

Elaine was very prepared for our lesson. She went at a pace that we were comfortable at but also challenged us through out the lesson. She is extremely nice and easy going so it wasn't intimidating but more fun and comfortable.

Kevin, 28 lessons with Elaine

12 weeks running

I have been working with Elaine for 12 + weeks. I find her approach very achievable, I can tell you that my sentence construction is much better. My understanding of conjugation is far better but still working on it. I would recommend Elaine to anyone from beginner to advanced. I am a beginner who never studied spanish before, I now have a spanish vocabulary and understanding of the spanish construction.

Stephen , 25 lessons with Elaine

Fun

Clear understanding, careful instructions, helps with all lessons and patient teaching gave me confidence. Love the lessons and methods.

Camille , 19 lessons with Elaine

Patient and skilled

Taught my son beginnings of Spanish in very short period. He was excited to tell me all about what he had learned

Jen, 1 lesson with Elaine

Impressively GREAT!

At the beginning of this process, I was very skeptical with the whole program. However, although yesterday was the first time me and my husband came in contact with Elaine, I believe it was just amazing! She was very patient and continuously mentioned that she was working to achieve our goal, which is that my husband can read, write and most of all speak English. She was so patient, without losing the ability of using learning techniques to push him into learning the language. I have very high expectations and I believe she will meet them all! If you are still skeptical of the program and the system and of Elaine, DON'T BE! I was there and I got the surprise of my life! So looking forward to working with you on this new journey!

Outstanding English Teacher

I've decided to write you a small note, thanking you for your help. I enjoyed you teaching my daughter immensely; you are an excellent teacher and you have inspired my daughter to continue learning with an open and positive mind. I appreciate all your hard work, it’s meant so much to me. My daughter fell in love with you the first day she met you. I will recommend you to anybody that's looking for an English tutor without no hesitation whatsoever. You're definitely number one in my book and always will be. Once again, thank you so much for your time, expertise and patience!
