About Donald Ellis

I am a native Arizonan who is married to a Mexican citizen, and who resides part time in Rosarito Beach, Mexico. I am a private contractor who has taught ESL since we began coming down here almost 8 years ago. I'm both ESOL and TKT certified through the Univ. of Cambridge. I teach to all ages and competence levels, and am proud to say that I have had the pleasure of watching some of my younger, beginning students progress from speaking their first English words, all the way to the honor rolls at their respective schools. I design my own curriculum when needed, usually with my more advanced student/clients, and tailor it to the individual needs of each respective student/client.

I also happen to play guitar, and have been asked to visit various elementary schools on music day to teach songs in English. I only share this information because I want to point out that they ask me to do this because I have a real knack for connecting with my students, so I am able to get the students to really participate, and to actually sing along!!!! And who wouldn't jump at the chance to do a rendition of "Wheels on the Bus" anyway, right?

I have a real passion for teaching, and for the gratification I receive when I see that "light" go on in my students' eyes, and I see they have grasped a lesson, or concept I am teaching them. My students always enjoy my encouraging, positive style of teaching, so they stay with me because of the learning experience I provide them.

I am flexible enough to commit to however many hours per week are needed, totally dependent on the needs of my students.

So please do follow up and contact me, --- all parties will be glad you did!!!
