About Elizabeth

I graduated from a liberal arts school, Wheaton College, and I also played sports in college. I have experience in both education and athletics and can help tutor in more than one subject. Being from a liberal arts school means that I have studied language, history, science, philosophy and many other courses besides those specifically pertinent to my degree (Communications).
I strongly believe that education should be interactive. Instead of having one specific way of teaching I believe that every student/child is unique and I alter my teaching style to fit each individual. I have taught 4th-5th graders at Summer Camps and Vacation Bible School over the years. More recently, I have been a substitute teacher in the Austin District where I taught in grades Elementary through High School. I also taught in the special needs department where I learned that students need to be taught in ways specific to their learning styles.

In the past year I have been a 6th grade basketball coach and was a collegiate athlete on the golf and lacrosse teams. I played competitive soccer through high school and was trained professionally. I have learned many things athletically through the years and would be able to offer help and personal training in these sports.

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.

Basketball

I grew up getting private basketball lessons and then went on to play high school basketball. I was a 6th grade basketball coach last fall/winter.

Bible Studies

I have grown up in the Church and have gone to many Bible camps. I also studied theology in college as a minor, so I took many classes on the Scriptures and history of the Church.

Cooking

When I was young, I was taught by a macrobiotic cook. I have been cooking ever since and have taught private Italian cooking classes in the past for teenage girls.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a substitute teacher for elementary-age students, and I am qualified to teach any subject to elementary age students as a college graduate.

Fitness

I have been professionally trained in muscle strengthening and training. I have also been coached and trained in sports such as golf, soccer, tennis, basketball, lacrosse and swimming.

Golf

I was a collegiate golfer and have been playing competitively since I was eight years old. I have been taught professionally and have placed in many tournaments throughout the years.
