Hi! My name is Eliane (El), and I am originally from Connecticut. I graduated from Middlebury College in 2018 with a BA in International Politics and Economics, and a concentration in Spanish. I am fluent in Spanish, and spent a semester directly enrolled in the University of Cordoba in Spain.
I have taught and tutored a variety of different subjects, and I love making connections with students to help them reach their full academic potential. I have worked with students from infancy through ages 22, and enjoy working with all ages! I was an Assistant Preschool Teacher for four years.
At Middlebury, I was a Peer Writing Tutor for the college's writing center. I worked with the dozens of students over my tenure to help them with their course related writing. I have extensive research experience myself, as I wrote an honors senior thesis on the motivations behind humanitarian aid, for which I received highest departmental honors. I really love getting students excited about writing!
I have taught classroom 8th grade science for Breakthrough Collaborative in Denver, CO for two summers. I worked with classes of 13-14 students to teach biology sections twice a day. I took that passion for teaching science to the outdoors, and have spent three seasons as an Outdoor Educator. I believe in the power of experiential learning, and in students taking responsibility for their own intellectual curiosity and pursuits.
I have privately tutored ACT and SAT test prep, the college admission process, Spanish language. I have also taught an SAT-focused college readiness summer course.
I believe the first step towards reaching academic goals is showing up, and I'm here to help!
