Elizabeth L

Bio

Originally from Connecticut, Elizabeth graduated cum laude from Harvard College with a BA in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and a language citation in German. While at Harvard, she participated extensively in the performing arts scene, earning the David McCord Prize for Unusual Artistic Talent, the Doris Cohen Levi Prize in Musical Theater, and an Office for the Arts at Harvard Developing Artist Fellowship. When not performing, Elizabeth enjoyed classes in animal diversity—especially entomology!—and even spent a summer researching octopuses in Naples, Italy thanks to a Weissman International Internship Program grant. After college, Elizabeth moved to New York City to pursue a performing arts career and is now pursuing an MFA through the NYU graduate acting program.

Over the past four years, Elizabeth has worked with students of all ages on both test prep and general academic support. She specializes in the ACT, SAT, SSAT/ISEE, high school biology, and high school mathematics. She also works with students on college essay writing and on homework and study skills. Elizabeth prides herself on being able to adapt her teaching style in response to her students’ needs.

When she’s not tutoring, Elizabeth can be found performing around the city, practicing aerial silks, or searching for insects in Central Park.
