Patient and friendly math tutor with a passion for education
Hello! I graduated from the University of Rochester as a math major with distinction in mathematics and with several awards recognizing my academic achievement. After college, I participated in the math post-baccalaureate program at Smith College, where I took a full year of advanced math coursework and participated in theoretical math research. This fall, I will be beginning my PhD in mathematics at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, a top 20 math PhD program.

Patient and clear tutor.
Elise has been super helpful in getting me to be more confident with Calculus. I now go to class knowing the majority of what we are learning so that I can ask effective questions. I like how she makes sure I understand why exactly we learn certain methods or styles of solving questions rather than just teaching me the formula. She is really patient and understanding when I take a little longer to understand a topic.

Very knowledge and engaged tutor.
She was very clear and organized with her explanations and didn't waste anytime on material that I didn't need to know. For questions I had trouble with, she did a great job explaining it in different ways so I best grasped the concept.

Elise works hard to help you understand and remember concepts
Elise helped me review for a general college entrance math test (not ACT or SAT) and she took my very vague idea of what I had to learn and ran with it! She explains everything really well and will always explain in a different way if you ask. She also gave me homework problems every week, as the test I was studying for didn't have any (good) workbook I could find. When I was having trouble remembering concepts, even though I understood them, Elise tried to connect the concepts to things I already knew, and explained the “why” behind formulas so I could remember them better. I passed my test even quicker than I thought I would. I would definitely recommend Elise.

Super super helpful
Elise is super kind and patient. She sat with me for 3 hours and never once got annoyed or complained. She was really helpful in breaking down items I couldn't understand which helped a lot. I will definitely use her again if I need any more tutoring!

Really good at breaking the material down
Elise has been helping me with calculus three and has been great help. She is super flexible and easy going but knows calculus well. Breaks each part down and helps you learn the material more than just memorizing!

great instructor !
Elise related really well with my daughter, who was able to finally grasp the concepts. We will definitely be using Elise again.

Super Helpful and Patient
My College Trig course was something I really had a hard time with throughout the entire semester and Elise really made the topics we were covering really easy to understand. Because I was missing some fundamental pieces she was able to help me understand more introductory material that i had missed and apply it in to the current lesson work that we were looking at. I tried a few different tutors for this class but Elise by far made the biggest impact!

High praise for Elise
My son just had his first Calc II session with Elise and I quote him, "She is REALLY good!" Thank you, Elise, for your help. I am sure we will enlist you again!

Very patient tutor.
Elise is so patient and knows her material well. Just had my first lesson with her and I feel so comfortable around her. She answers all my questions without hesitation. I’m so glad I found her in the beginning of my semester.

Great teacher!
Elise went through everything really well! She gave me notes that I will be able to use in the future, and the problems we did really elucidated concepts for me.
