About Ellen

I have taught Spanish for 33 years and currently maintain CT Teaching Certification grades 7-12 through 2019. Additionally I am currently certified at UCONN through 2017 as a Spanish Language Adjunct. My experience has included decades of teaching AP Spanish Language and Literature in addition to preparation for year end national level testing. Additionally I am certified in teaching ELL (English as a Second Language to English language learners) K-12 and have also taught this subject area for decades . I enjoy working on an individual basis with students evaluating levels and planning strategies for improvement. I enjoy the challenge involved in achieving a goal and the satisfaction of observing progress and strengthening of language proficiency. Planning strategies will involve identifying areas that need to be strengthened and providing necessary materials to achieve required level for success for a specific goal. Depending on whether students have their own text and/or other materials will determine evaluation of what supplemental materials will be needed for support and establishing strong foundation of basic and/or more advanced concepts to perform at desired level of competency.

I am willing to meet with students to evaluate their needs and create a plan to work towards the desired goal.

I am dedicated teacher and passionate about "el espaƱol!" My formal education and experience as teacher in the United States for decades in addition to living abroad in a Spanish speaking country have provided me with the tools to be an effective instructor.

Please feel free to contact me to evaluate your needs and discuss if tutoring is appropriate for you. At that time we can arrange a mutually convenient schedule. Gracias.
