I am currently a graduate student and teaching assistant in Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania. During the course of my studies I have run recitations and workshops for mathematics courses from the pre-freshman to the postgraduate level, and have planned, designed, and taught two full-credit summer courses from scratch. I have been privately tutoring students for over a decade, and have experience in tutoring subjects from Algebra I to Calculus and beyond.

I believe strongly that ...
Elaine does a great job at tailoring her approach to the needs of the student. I enjoy discussing the significance and real-world applications of formulas, as opposed to simple memorization or "plug & chug" approaches. Elaine and I spend more time talking about formulas or mathematical concepts, as opposed to simply solving problems. She not only possesses a great understanding of everything, but she's good at communicating in a clear/concise way and its also obvious she genuinely enjoys math/numbers. Working with Elaine has really helped me understand more of the "why" so I can be even better at the "how" when it comes to solving problems. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services!

Elaine was excellent!! Very knowledgeable, patient, with great teaching methods!! I was taught how to do math in simple steps, which helped me to understand all of which I didn't know. The session was surprising enjoyable! I never thought I would enjoy doing Math! Thank you WyzAnt for providing such great tutors!!!

Our session ran three hours working on problems. Elaine gave me a good foundation to build on to finish the rest afterwards.

I am so grateful for Elaine's help!! She responded to my inquiry quickly and was flexible. She was able to explain everything I needed help with in a manner that was easy to understand, and she is very friendly. Before the session I was so lost. After the session I was ready to take the exam. You need to have Elaine as your tutor if you need math help in the areas she covers (which are many)!! THANK YOU, Elaine.

Elaine met for me over two consecutive days. I had a pretty specific assignment, and Elaine sensed what I wanted to accomplish quickly. She took the time to look over material before we met, found a great, convenient meeting location, and we were able to dive right in. She took time to bring together the material and the overall concepts while making progress through my worksheet. She knew where we had to stop and look at concepts, and when to push through a problem. She also helped with tips for just writing my equations so I don't confuse myself. I've worked with a number of tutors in the past year, and the tutor can make all the difference. I would go back to her anytime.
