Clear communication is just as important today as it was 20 years ago. Although technology has changed the learning process and seriously disturbed students concentration, writing and speaking clearly is critical to succeeding at school and on the job.
Whether it's writing a paper, preparing a debate, writing a business letter, outlining a college essay, preparing for standardized tests, I work to ensure students are better communicators after we have finished working together.

Elizabeth customizes her communication and approach for each student. She knows how to hone in on the focus area(s). We enjoyed learning from her. She was very helpful.

Elizabeth tutored my son, 5, in phonetics, basic reading comprehension, and compiling simple sentences. My son already knew his alphabet but needed help with the pronunciation of certain vowels and consonants. English is not his native language. Elizabeth is a rare teacher who understands the connection between reading and writing. She can take a specific task (helping Kevin practice tougher letters and vowels and learn how to write several different sentences using those vowels and tough-to-pronounce letters, for example) and put it in the context by finding quality model reading and books that will help my son relate it to reading and pronunciation. She does this while continuously observing and reassessing a child?s engagement, skill level, and learning style. She works hard to anticipate a child?s needs and is always ready to help in any way possible. As a teacher, she?s resourceful and creative, sensitive and gentle, humorous but firm. She proved to be flexible, generous, dependable, and a top choice go-to tutor for a wide range of grades and levels. (I could use 10 of her, frankly.) She touches everyone she works with: students, their parents, and her colleagues. And her touch lingers, leaving an imprint of caring, ethics, morality, and grace. Elizabeth doesn't just help a student find their words and create meaning when they read and write. She shows them how to take those skills and apply them to their ever widening world. This is a gift and the very definition of a teacher. Elizabeth has a deep and wide skill set and brings business savvy, tech competency, a deep knowledge of literacy, and a successful run as a teacher to any institution lucky enough to have her. I refer her without reservation.
