About Elise

I have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a minor in Spanish. I am not a native speaker, but I am strong in the grammar and technical areas of Spanish and have always had an affinity for language. I tutored my peers in high school, including a couple of native speakers who were struggling with grammar, particularly verb conjugations. I enjoy sharing my love of the language with my students!

Additionally, I have always excelled at Math (I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam and was one course short of a minor in college), and I have a strong background in computers including general computer literacy and programming.

I have a few thousand hours professional tutoring experience and 2 years experience teaching computer science at a charter school.

I believe everyone's learning styles are different, and I look forward to the challenge and reward of helping your students in their quest for learning. I can't wait to hear from you!

Ms.Elise has been instrumental in helping my daughter grasp trig concepts. She is explaining the fundamental concepts that have been omitted in school due to lack of time. Clearly Ms. Elise has a masterful understanding of trigonometry in order to go back and teach what should have been taught in the first place! I highly recommend her services to any family whose child is having issues with math
