Thank you for taking an interest in working with me. I offer Academic Coaching, which is a one-on-one or small group service designed to help students build study skills such as reading comprehension, note taking, time management, goal setting, organization, basic writing skills, test preparation, and test-taking strategies. I am also qualified to help students cope with more personal issues such as test anxiety, low self-efficacy or confidence, and disability, including learning disabilities, ADHD, and physical and mental health conditions. I am a licensed Special Education Assistant in the state of Wisconsin as well as a Permit-based Substitute Teacher in Wisconsin.

I offer private academic coaching to college, high school, and middle school students within the Milwaukee Area. Coaching is a personalized service which is customized to the specific needs of the student. The first coaching session will be an initial assessment where I will ascertain the students skill levels, discuss their specific concerns, and work with the student and parent or guardian to create a customized plan of action. All sessions following the initial assessment will be focused on skill building and students will often be required to complete assignments between sessions to practice skills. My clients usually come in two types, those who just need a few hours of coaching over a few weeks time to work on specific areas, and those who need a longer term commitment and accountability week-to-week.

My Qualifications

I have a MS in Higher Education Administration specializing in academic services, instructional design, and adult learning. My BA is in Biology, specializing in psychology and animal behavior. I have 3 years of part-time experience academic coaching undergraduate students and assisting with the development of the academic coaching program at a local university. I have been coaching privately for 2 years (as of January 2017).

I believe academic coaching is a service students at all levels can benefit from and I truly believe that most students who don't like learning and struggle to be successful in traditional academic environments have underdeveloped study skills which make keeping up in the traditional classroom difficult. By improving these skills, students will also gain confidence and feel more comfortable seeking assistance and advocating for their own needs inside the classroom.

Please contact me with any questions about my services or to schedule a coaching session. I look forward to meeting you, or your minor student, and addressing their specific academic concerns.

Please be aware of the following policies (as of February 7th, 2017):
Cancellation Policy: 4 hours notice is required for all cancelations. Students who fail to meet this requirement will be charged for missed lessons.

Session length: Standard lessons are 1 hour, with the option to extend sessions up to to 2 hours for adult student only.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Elaine is doing a great job helping my teenage son get organized and sharpen his study skills. She believes in not only helping him develop skills, but try to understand why he makes the decisions he makes. Very glad we found her!

Excellent and professional!

Wow, such a great tutor! Elaine's knowledge of the subject, organizational skills, and being able to effectively communicate study strategies to help future goal setting was above and beyond what we could have hoped for. We are so very pleased and looking forward to our future lessons and watching my son gain confidence, knowledge and success! Thank you Elaine!
