About Elaine

Hi! my name is Elaine and I am a former preschool teacher, nanny and parent of 2 adult children. I really enjoy facilitating the "ah-ha" moment for a child. I have helped many preschoolers learn colors, numbers, letters and shapes over my many years of teaching. I am often the first teacher a child encounters and because of that I always strive to encourage a love of learning which hopefully will last a lifetime. I don't believe in punishing a child for poor grades, I believe that poor grades are a sign that the child doesn't understand the material presented by the teacher and needs some extra help. If the parent cannot provide that help, then a tutor could fill in the gaps in the child's learning.

My own 2 children each had challenges to overcome during their school years. I spent many hours with my daughter, helping her understand the material in many of her classes, we later discovered that she has a form of dyslexia. My son has mild Aspergers Syndrome and he learned everything quickly, however I spent time teaching him how to study. I had to come up with creative methods to help them. My daughter needed visual cues so we used many index cards, I also had her teach me the concepts she needed to learn. My son needed to be shown how to focus on what he was learning to understand how to learn the material. Helping them taught me patience and creative thinking. Both of them were honors students, both in public school and college.
