Molloy College (English, History)
I love language and history. Therefore, I pursued my BA in English/History & Theology at a small, intimate college on Long Island. While a student at this college and for a year after graduating Magna Cum Laude, I had a wonderful opportunity to work with a diverse population of students writing papers as well as helping them prepare oral presentations.
Then too, working at Molloy College I worked with a wide range of the Hispanic population in the evening helping them become proficient in English. I never just "spouted" rules of grammar since for every "rule" I could give, I could cite the inconsistencies to that rule. I worked with them using recorders to enable them to hear proper pronunciation, rather than just looking at the written word.
After re-locating to South Florida I worked as an associate director as well as a tutor for all age groups at Score At The Top. In the capacity of an Associate Director, I worked with school administrators as well as parents helping to determine tutors best suited to work with students either one-on-one or in small groups if preparing for specialized or standardized Florida tests.
I have my BA in English and History with a minor in Theology and would love to work with students of all backgrounds, crossing a broad swathe of disciplines, if you are in college. With writing, whether you or in elementary, middle, high or college, I can offer you a winning formula of "cats rats and bats" and assure you, you will be able to write on any subject.

Ellen is a wonderful English tutor for my 12 year old daughter. Ellen reads the novel that my daughter is required to read for school and really engages her in conversation and writing regarding events in the book. Ellen is flexible with time (staying longer or cutting it shorter) when needed and even allows us to contact her by phone to ask questions. It has really been a great experience working with her.
Ellen is an outstanding tutor who is very patient and thorough. She has been tutoring me in my religion class, and as a result I have an A+ in my class so far and that is because of her help and dedication! I would highly recommend her as she is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
