I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish from Auburn University and a 40-hour Spanish/English Medical Interpreter Certificate from UGA-Gwinnett.

Great Tutor

Ellen was very patient. She was very organized and able to explain concepts so I could understand. I had one lesson and it was meaningful. I’m looking forward to more sessions

Antoinette , 7 lessons with Ellen

Spanish Lesson

Thank you Ellen for helping our daughter gain confidence when she is frustrated with Spanish! We are excited that our daughter asks for you instead of ignoring her assignment.

Sharon, 5 lessons with Ellen

Conversational Spanish

Ellen is conversing in Spanish so that I can improve my conversational Spanish. She is very knowledgeable about the language, very helpful for understanding words and slang, and able to speak on any topic from traveling experiences to owning a pet, etc. She is very friendly and nice, and I will definitely use her for help again in the future in improving Spanish.

Rhonda, 5 lessons with Ellen

Excelente

I gave her a set number of days for tutoring & she went ahead setting up a lesson plan to get me up to speed for my particular goal (in this case, college class preparation). The "homework" she provides is on a level that even my younger, school-hating-self could tolerate, & that my current busy-schedule-self can accommodate. We do work generally on Quizlet & within a large Google Document, & she even formats my notes nicely of her own initiative. Above & beyond good service, well worth the current $26/hr rate & probably worth more, for the value you get. All this from just 3 of the 10 classes I've taken so far. I'm certain it'll get even better as we go along & that I'll crush Intermediate Spanish 1 at its end.

lots experienced teacher

Ellen has lots of experience in teaching foreigners. When you have time with her, you will know it easily. she knew which would be your weakness and common mistakes you might make. According to her teaching abroad history, She's probably one of the best options.

Kyoung hwan, 7 lessons with Ellen

Super easy going!

It was my first lesson today and it was so easy going dealing with Ellen! I can’t wait to learn Spanish and continue working with you.

Jessica, 6 lessons with Ellen

Excellent

I just had my first session with Ellen. I thought she was very well organized and proficient. I'm excited to keep learning Spanish!

Monica, 14 lessons with Ellen

Great Teacher

She taught me Ielts test speaking lesson. She explained all the weakness in an organised way. Now I am working on those so that in my next session I can overcome those. She is an excellent teacher. I would recommend her for English language learning sessions.
