She loves to crochet and draw, as well as hanging out with her dog Winston, and hiking with her boyfriend!


Eli S.


Eli leads his math and reading lessons with compassion. Although a student may not feel confident with their work, when a student works with Eli in either the math or reading program, they’re able to climb past obstacles and they grow above and beyond their own expectations. Eli relates his own experiences with his students, forming a close bond that enhances the learning process. He enjoys making the work both interesting and easier for students to understand. With a BS in Biological Sciences from San Francisco University, Eli connects with the world around him, either through work, or through his music, with his family, or his 3 pure-bred English Pointers.
