About Elisa

As a tutor, I strive to lead by example, while fostering a strong, warm and friendly relationship that promotes a student's self esteem and sense of accomplishment. I strongly believe in equal measures of hard work and reward and truly enjoy watching my students grow in their and academic pursuits.

I am a 4rd year English Dissertator and PhD candidate with over 15 years experience in teaching and tutoring children, young adults and adults, ages 5 to 55 in English, literature, social studies, writing, and grammar and mechanics. I am passionate about learning and strive to instill that same passion into each of my pupils. I am organized, punctual, and professional, but I also have a great sense of humor to help break the ice, ease tension and get even the most distracted student ready to focus!
