About Ellen

I came out to teach primary school in 1975. I studied Learning Disabilities and specialized in reading/ language development. Since I was unable to find a teaching job, I've had a teaching career as a professional quilter. I've taught and lectured adults nationally for almost thirty years, throughout the US to many groups and guilds. I've written 2 commercially published books and have produced 10 others. I have strong skills in Adobe Photoshop and Indesign as well as other publishing programs.

But I've always loved teaching and tutoring. From time to time I've taken on tutoring situations privately, and would love to continue to help folk find their best self in learning the skills they need. I spent 8 years working with 3 children in a Bosnian Family. My Bosnian is limited, but I'm quite skilled at working the interface for people learning English as a second language. I tutored them in grade school and high school, English, history, grammar and writing. I've worked with other children in shorter term situations, as well as adult education.

I believe in taking people where they are and working up from there. I believe in following a child's passions, because we learn best what we are passionate about.I believe that all moments are a moment to build skill, confidence and courage, if we face them with curiosity and kindness. I believe there's always a unique way to teach each person, and a unique way for them to learn.
