I taught elementary students for five years (from 2008-2013) and am very energetic, creative and committed to helping all students succeed! I am now a stay at home mom to my 6 month old son. I will always have a strong passion for education, teaching and learning! I am highly qualified in planning and executing lesson plans for Math, Reading, Writing, Science and Social Studies. My student's reading levels increase an average of 1.7 years' growth in a school year and they also passed the Virginia Standards of Learning Math tests. I have tutored students after school for four years and enjoy working one-on-one or in a small group with children to better meet their needs. If I become your tutor, I will pre-assess your child to see what their academic strengths and needs are and will then create a plan to help them excel.

Elizabeth is a fantastic reading teacher for young children. She provides the skill sets required in an enjoyable and fun way while offering the positive reinforcement needed for your child to become an excellent reader. She always arrives promptly and well-prepared to creatively teach your child. She offers a modern approach to her lesson plans that encourages my child to keep striving for more. What I appreciate the most is the rapport that she quickly established with my child and her kid friendly educational toolbox.
We were visiting in the Pebble Beach area for 10 days and I wanted to find a tutor for my son. I'm SO HAPPY that I found Elizabeth, she was GREAT! I could not have asked for more in a teacher!
My son thoroughly enjoyed his lessons and learned a lot in a short amount of time, which was very pleasing. Elizabeth kept him interested and engaged, which is not easy to do with a 6 year old boy. She made the lessons fun, but also pushed him to work hard and reach his potential.
She was always very polite, punctual and covered all the academic areas that we discussed before the lessons started. I was very pleased with the lessons, and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to work with their child!
I will be getting in touch with Elizabeth again next year when we are back in the area!
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.
I majored in Elementary Education from Wake Forest University in 2008 and graduated with my professional teaching license in k-6. I taught second grade for two years at a charter school in Washington, DC. I then taught first and second grade for two years in Alexandria, Virginia public schools. Last year, I taught kindergarten at an international school in Seaside, CA. I frequently work in small groups and individually with my students. I am a licensed K-6 teacher in every state having reciprocity with all NC states and passed the tests required for NC and VA.
I can help teach your child to read by help them learn how sounds correlate with letters or groups of letters in our alphabetic writing system. I have taught many students how to read through phonics instruction! My creative method of teaching phonics will have your child excited about reading.
