I love helping others succeed academically and have worked in literacy and tutoring programs for the past six years. This includes work with the AVID program and Asheville City Schools, the Y-Readers program, non-profit Promising Pages, and Charlotte Mecklenberg Library. I have experience with tutoring for all ages, from kindergarten through high school. I am a recent graduate from UNC Asheville, in English/Creative Writing and Environmental Studies. I am so passionate about learning and am excited to be able to help you improve!
I love being able to witness the curiosity and determination of my students. It is so inspiring to see the hard work and imagination of others. I grew up with a passion for reading and writing, and I love getting to share that passion with others. Books changed my life, so seeing my students delve into their own ideas and literature is amazing.
Eliana has been tutoring my 5th grader in math for the last month or so and my daughters confidence level has increased - does not need as much assistance with homework!!
She is nice, well educated and all three of my children love her.
If the student is in elementary or middle school, I start off by speaking with the parent (s) on the phone to see what they are looking for in tutoring. Then I plan accordingly for the first meeting with the student. I always welcome the students and encourage them to keep trying. I remind them that it's okay to make mistakes--it is all part of the learning process.
If the student is in high school, I let them take the lead on what they are looking for. They generally bring in the assignments and I support them in studying and completing homework.
I am trained in active reading, a skill used when helping younger students learn to read. For older students, I am familiar with close reading analysis and comprehension. As an English major, I have taken specialty courses in ancient, renaissance, and modern literature, poetry writing, nonfiction writing, and fiction writing. In terms of math, I took through AP Calculus AB and received a 5 on the AP exam.

I will give a $5 discount for siblings.
For in person tutoring, I may add $5 to the original price if I need to account for transportation.
I started tutoring when I was in high school and volunteered at my local library in their "Get Ready for Kindergarten" program. Inspired by the enthusiasm of all the children, I continued tutoring to this day.
I have worked with students of all ages, K-12. As an AVID tutor, I worked with students at Asheville City Schools in grades 6-12. For the Y-Readers program, I worked with kindergarteners through second graders who were below grade level in reading. This included students learning English as a second language. I have also worked with students with autism and special needs. I currently have six students grades 3-6 who I have been tutoring continuously for half a year to two years.
