Overview

First of all, congratulations on having the courage and self-discipline to do what most others do not: learn a new language. The hard part is over! You've already begun the learning process and now all you need is someone to give you the guidance, support, and tools to help you along the way.

I hold my students to high standards, believing that setting consistent and high expectations is the key to success and improvement. I encourage students to reach these standards by providing honest feedback about their strengths and weaknesses, actively listening, and individualizing every lesson. Though I set high standards for students, I expect and even encourage them to make mistakes. Making mistakes is the best way to begin getting better and lets me know what areas we should work on together.

Very industrious teacher. She adapts her classes and topics depending on your necessities; also she is aware about you are doing well or wrong.

Elisha is a smart, patient and detail oriented teacher. She has a great experience in giving the class and following up with students, especially giving homeworks that covers the whole class. I would recommend her in English and ESL lessons and classes for any age or level.

Elisha is a patient and kind teacher who plans thought-provoking lessons. She really understands my child and what works for him. I have seen noticeable improvement in my son’s ability to analyze and summarize literature since starting lessons with Elisha. We are very happy with the work Elisha does and would highly recommend her!
