I have been a high school math teacher for a number of years and am a former youth minister. I enjoy helping students work through their fears of math to become successful! I have taught algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and pre-calculus (including trigonometry). I have also taught statistics at the college level. I know how frustrating math can be, and I look for the missing pieces in a student's knowledge to help them to gain a secure footing in their current math class.

I am willing to travel to your home or have your student come to mine for their tutoring session. I ask that the student have their textbook and/or notes available for me to use as a resource. It is also important that we have plenty of paper and sharpened pencils ready. I will bring my iPad with me to show how to access additional resources.

Approved subjects

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.

Amazing tutor!! — My daughter (a senior in high school) couldn't say enough good things about Ellen. She is very patient, thorough and made some Algebra concepts understandable for the first time. We will definitely call on her again for the second semester! ...
