About this tutor

I taught 3rd grade and more recently 4th grade for 11 years in a Dual Immersion Public School, so I have experience working with students who are not native English speakers.

I have also worked at the Middle School level and feel comfortable working with students through 8th grade.

My specialties are Language Arts: History, Literature, Reading and Writing.

My background is in Fine Arts, so I bring a fresh, creative approach to learning with a focus on visual aids.

I have enjoyed a lifetime love of learning, and utilize these traits and skills on a daily basis: curiosity, inquiry, collaboration, expression, notation, organization, fruition. 

I especially enjoy seeing things through a young person's perspective, as I always learn from my students; teaching and learning go hand in hand. I also enjoy finding what sparks joy for each student and using it to help them find their own path through the learning process.

    She is doing an amazing job with our 8 year old, even with it being remote. Our student is excited for each session when reading is typically a bit of a struggle. Thank you!

    Elisabeth (Beth) was fantastic, she had my 2nd grade daughter engaged for the whole hour (which is a long time when learning). We wanted to focus on reading & writing. Beth was able to assess where my daughter was at and then worked with her strengths & develop her skills in the areas she had been struggling in. We were very happy with Beth & will re-engage once we return from a holidays.
