  • Elizabeth was extremely knowledgeable about what was needed for my son to help increase his grades in school. She provided tips and recommendations that were useful and right on target. She was extremely patient and took the time to explain and provide examples of test situations and improved my son's writing skills. Her teaching style was not overwhelming, with interesting conversations which are not confusing. I highly recommend her and I think she's a terrific tutor.—Lynn, Media, PA
