Tutor Personal Information

Name: Ms Elana K.
Gender: Female   Age: 31-40
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

When tutoring I like to assess a student's level of understanding and skill. I am then able to target precisely their needs. I use my sense of humor and start with their biggest area of need. I give positive feedback along with the constructive. I make the subject matter exciting and I make sure they know they are capable of doing anything they set their minds to. Tutoring is more than assessment, information and review. It is also a matter of trust, a sense of accomplishment and the raising of self esteem for each student.

I was educated at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. I received a Bachelor of Arts in English and graduated with a 3.5 GPA. I made Dean's List and Honors Program and earned several sought after awards at Rutgers.

I currently tutor for a nationally recognized company in English Language Arts and substitute teach in New Jersey Public Schools. My students range in age from Primary to High School. I hold a State of New Jersey Certificate of Eligibility (CE) in English, Highly Qualified Teacher Status.
