About Ellen

I am interested in helping you be successful in your academics. This is why you are reading my profile. My job is to make you happy and more productive in the subject you seek to learn better.

It is my opinion that hands on learning is the best way to learn. We have to be active to engage our brain to focus, remember, and comprehend. I want you to be thoroughly engaged while you are learning. We will employ a variety of methods to enable this learning process. Once we determine your learning style we will use that information to tailor a program of lessons that will add to your success.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

My Certifications are: Accounting, American History, Biology, Economics, English, GED Preparation, Grammar, Micrsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Philosophy, and Vocabulary. I would like to help anyone who requests my help.

My Master of Science Degree is from Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia. My major was Organizational Development. My Bachelor Of Science is in Public Administration, and was also earned at Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD at Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My courses are online. Also, I am only taking one class this semester, and one more during the Summer. I am available Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Thank You Prospective Students.

Elementary (K-6th)

My experience consists of teaching my own children for the past fourteen years, being a Substitute Teacher, and a Paraprofessional for four years. My best subjects are: Reading, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Composition Writing.

Currently, my interests include working with both Regular and Special Needs pupils.

Sincerely:
Ellen

ESL/ESOL

Hello:

My experience in teaching English as a second language was affirmed when I used to Substitute Teach for the Clarke County School District. I have taught seven ESOL/ESL classes. In addition, my neighbors are Hispanic, and we teach each other our primary language.

It is simply amazing that Spanish and English words can sometimes be understood without taking courses to study the language. It is also fun to watch television in Spanish; especially commercials and talk shows. We can learn a lot that way.

Thanks:
Ellen

GED

I tutor for the GED in the subjects of English, grammar, writing, basic math, social studies, and science.

General Computer

Hello:

I have been a computer user since the late 1980's. My education consists of a diploma certificate from Interactive Learning Systems in 1990. I graduated with a double major in Word Processing and Automated Accounting. In addition, I took a general computer applications course at Athens Technical College in 2008.

I have been taking courses online at three schools in the past seven years to complete my Teaching Certification in Learning Disabilities at the University of Georgia, my MS at Brenau University, and my current program of study which is General Psychology at Capella University.

Thanks:
Ellen

Public Speaking

Hello:

My experience in Public Speaking began as an undergraduate at Brenau University in the early 1990's. Since then I have taken a Public Speaking - Speech Communications at Athens Technical Institute in 2008. In addition, the eight graduate level courses that I took form 2007-2009 at Brenau University in Norcross, Georgia required us to present projects to the class and our instructors each semester for a grade. We used PowerPoint slides in our presentations.

Thanks:
Ellen

Religion

My experience in the field of religion is comprised of the courses that I have taken as an undergraduate student at Brenau University, and the University of Georgia via their Independent Study Program. My personal study has been mainly Christianity, but I have been introduced to Buddhism, Taoism, Mormonism, and the Pentacostal disciplines as well.

Special Needs

Hello:

I have taken 33 semester hours in Learning Disabilities courses at the University of Georgia. Two of these classes (6 hours) were in student teaching. In addition, I have taught as a Substitute Teacher for the Clarke County School District in several Special Education Classrooms; the specializations were Emotional Behavior Disordered, Mildly Intellectually Delayed, and Severely Intellectually Delayed.

Thanks:
Ellen

Study Skills

Hello:

I would love to help you organize your time in hopes of making your study time relevant and valuable.

I have been a student for most of my life. Thus far I have earned a diploma in Word Processing and Automated Accounting, a BS in Public Administration, a MS in Organizational Development, and am currently studying for a PhD in General Psychology online at Capella University.

I have 33 semester hours in learning disabilities certification from the University of Georgia. I need one student teaching course and have to pass two tests to become certified to teach grades K - 12. In addition, I have five more courses to complete an AS in Paralegal Studies at Athens Technical College. I plan to start back this Summer to complete this coursework because the public schools are laying off teachers, and I have to have a teaching job to complete my final practicum at UGA.
