About Ellen

I have loved reading since I was a small child and discovered that losing myself in a good book was a way to explore the world. I want to share that appreciation with others and help develop literacy skills and passion in those seeking to grow. I have a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Reading and am FL-certified in Reading K-12 and English 6-12. I have worked extensively with high school students preparing for the ACT. Additionally, I've taught adults at the community college level in remedial reading skills, as well as Foundations of Reading and Field Experience for future educators.

With almost 20 years of secondary education experience in reading and English, I am well-qualified to meet your tutoring needs in reading, writing and test preparation with flexible scheduling and convenient locations.
