Hi! My name is Ellen and I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Dance. Though dance is my passion, I have always loved academics of all sorts and am wholeheartedly a math geek. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, and completed three International Baccalaureate certificates in high school, in the fields of Math, English and History. I am a member of the National Honors Society and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and I was a self-nominated James Scholar at the U of I every semester except my last. I love to teach and to share my knowledge with others, both in dance and in academics. I encourage discussion in my students to help further understanding, and I am able to adapt to a large number of teaching styles depending on the student's needs. I have a particular gift for proofreading papers and essays and for correcting and explaining the grammar and syntax of both English and mathematics. Shoot me an email; I'd love to work with you!
