About Elizabeth


Bio

Hi, My name's Elizabeth, and I have been a middle and high school teacher for over 30 years. While I taught English/Language Arts and Spanish, I also co-taught algebra, geometry, and history classes at the high school level. I was honored to be chosen as Teacher of The Year at my school a few years ago, and I also mentored new teachers to help them with instructional strategies. While I am always happy to teach a full class of 30 students, I find my best teaching comes when I split...

Hi, My name's Elizabeth, and I have been a middle and high school teacher for over 30 years. While I taught English/Language Arts and Spanish, I also co-taught algebra, geometry, and history classes at the high school level. I was honored to be chosen as Teacher of The Year at my school a few years ago, and I also mentored new teachers to help them with instructional strategies. While I am always happy to teach a full class of 30 students, I find my best teaching comes when I split students into groups and tailor the assignments to each group as I work with the groups. I always build practice opportunities into my class time because practice is such an essential part of learning and master.

Even though I never completed the paperwork to be certified as an Algebra teacher, I took and passed the certification test. My experience as a co-teacher in algebra and geometry classes has given me lots of hand-on experience with the basics in these areas of math.

My certifications are in English, ESL, and Spanish, and I have worked with both native English and Spanish speakers. lf you can believe it, I really like figuring out grammar problems--some of my favorite parts as an English teacher are editing drafts with my students! I love working with students on their writing: varying sentence structure, choosing strong vocabulary, and crafting catchy introductions. And reading together is fun!

I want to help students at all levels; being able to understand, synthesize, and (eventually) independently work through assignments is key. Learning can be fun, but my years of experience also show me that a certain amount of hard work and practice are necessary. I am open to suggestions from parents and students, and I hope to be a helpful resource. Please feel free to contact me with questions and to schedule your tutoring session!

Awesome teacher!!

Elizabeth is the first person I was able really speak Spanish language with. I had the real conversation in Spanish!!! She listened to me careful, asked questions and corrected me very polite and this is exactly what I need. She is very patient and tactful. Elizabeth is excellent teacher and talking with her I feel like I have a conversation with very close friend. In our first lesson I read a lot and we discussed pretty much theme. If somebody wants to improve or advance Spanish language I highly recommend Elizabeth. Muchas gracias, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth C. is an experienced and outstanding tutor

Elizabeth C. is helping me learn beginning Spanish, and I'm progressing so much faster with her as my tutor (as opposed to learning it solely on my own). She is an excellent tutor.
