Elise Dunaway

SoCal Education Services Coordinator

Elise Dunaway joins Study Smart Tutors after working as a director of a non profit and as an outdoor educator. She has a real passion for hands-on education and creative learning inside and outside the classroom. 

She knows firsthand how challenging it is applying to college but also how difficult the road to earning a degree can be. She is excited to help students at such a pivotal point in life not only get into college, but also prepare them with necessary tools to succeed and graduate. 

Elise earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She is an avid long distance runner and hiker, enjoys reggae, basketball and is happiest at the ocean.
