About Elona

After thirteen years as a highly successful teacher in Oregon, my husband and I are very excited about our new Texas life! My background includes a wide variety of strengths. I have taught a wide variety of age groups, learning styles, special needs and subjects. I spent about ten years teaching fifth and sixth grade, and have taught second, third, fourth as well as younger and older grade levels.
I believe every child has extraordinary strengths and deserves a respectful learning environment that works for them. I am excited to become a tutor after so many years teaching in the classroom, and I'm looking forward to continuing to help children learn.

I have extensive elementary teaching experience, including use of standards, manipulatives, visual and physical learning strategies.

I have extensive elementary teaching experience, including a Master's research and thesis topic of increasing deep comprehension in students. I also have experience including Common Core standards in daily lessons for many years.

I was an elementary school teacher for thirteen years in Oregon. My husband and I moved to Texas in June and I am excited to bring my experience as a tutor.

I would love to discuss your specific needs and work together to help your child be successful in their learning!

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.

Common Core

I have taught using the Common Core curriculum for many years in Oregon. I am adept at researching standards and objectives of lessons, and then teaching to my targets daily.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a teacher in Oregon for thirteen years. I have taught 5th and 6th grade for about ten years, all subjects in a self-contained classroom. I have also taught 3rd grade for two years, 4th for one year, 2nd for one year, as well as spending time as a long term substitute or student teacher teaching in kindergarten, 1st grade and high school. I am a highly qualified teacher with great success.

Study Skills

Study skills are extremely important for children to be successful at school. As a former teacher for 13 years, I have been instrumental in helping students hone their organizational skills and be able to use their time wisely. I have worked with children with many learning styles and abilities, including special needs and TAG/GATE. Many of my students over the years have had IEP goals in organization or 504 accommodations for organization as well. I am very skilled in implementing and adopting programs to help children in these areas.
