Greetings!

I am a veteran high school history and journalism teacher and am now working on a PhD. I have a BA in History, an MA in English with a writing concentration, and am MS in Clinical Mental Health. I have tutoring experience in English and Social Studies as well as general academic skill areas. I am experienced working with young adults, including college and high school students.

I have taught an honors course in American Political History, advised a nationally recognized student newspaper. I have also particularly loved teaching 20th Century US History, anything military history, and find Civics and Political Science of great interest. I also have background in other areas of social studies including Economics and Psychology. I have pursued additional coursework in each of those areas.

I hope to work with you soon!

Great Teacher

Amazing!! My son loves her. She is extremely knowledgeable and really cares about him doing well in school. Best choice I could have made!

Lindsey, 2 lessons with Elaina

Thoughtful and Supportive Tutor

Elaina knew exactly how to help my daughter get ready for her AP World History exam. She gave my daughter some excellent steps to start her out. This helped my daughter get her mind off the pressure she was feeling and on to productive work. Elaina also took note of what my daughter needs to focus on, then came up with a game plan. I'm grateful for her keen knowledge of the academic world and the support she is willing to give.

Connected well with Jon

Jon has never had a tutor before and has been hesitant to work with one. Elaine connected very well with him right from the start.
