About Ellia

I love sharing the things that excite me, with others. So teaching, for me, has always been a natural by-product of sharing my interests. I began teaching in high school, teaching dance and music to a performance troupe that I was a member of, as well as teaching music to friends and neighbors.

While I was in graduate school, studying Literature and Writing, I began to teach illiterate adults through the public library system. This was a terrific and humbling experience, giving me new insight into how difficult it is to succeed in this world without the ability to read and write.

Stories have always been my passion - both reading them, and writing them - and I cannot imagine my life without the gifts of words and language. I have taught reading and writing with IRD - International Reading Development - teaching all ages, from 5 years old - to college students. It thrills me to share my passion for language with others, so they too can travel the world, simply by opening a book.

I have a graduate degree in Writing and Literature from Antioch University, Los Angeles. I am a voracious reader, as well as the author of short stories, poetry, songwriting, and a novel. I do what I love, and I would love nothing more than to pass along the joy of the written word, and inspire the next generation of readers and writers. I think it's imperative that a child can see an adult, deeply engaged and excited, about reading and writing.
