Meet Elyse

  • Comfortable with pets

I am a woman who wears many different hats: I am an actress, I am a singer, I am a tutor. And I bring all of these elements to my work with children! I currently teach a children's music class (ages 0-5 years; basically an interactive 45 minute concert, complete with instruments and puppets!), and for the older children, I am a private tutor (everything from basic reading and math skills for students as young as 5, all the way up to SAT level). I love kids, and kids generally love me. I've been referred to as "the baby whisperer" on several occasions, due to my ability to keep a fussy kid from staying....well, fussy! I think what it really comes down to with me is that I genuinely enjoy spending time with kids. I like figuring out what makes them excited and entertained and playing along with them, and Read more I'm also comfortable helping them wind down for bedtime (usually with a relaxing book of their choosing). And I'm not sure if it's my general cheerfulness and high energy level, or if my large eyes and red hair make me look like a cartoon character to them...but they enjoy my company as well.
