About Ellen

Hello, my name is Ellen, and I have been teaching English for almost ten years. I have worked with international students from all over the world who want to improve their English skills as well as young children who need extra help with their reading and writing skills. For those whose first language is not English, I can help with Grammar, Reading, Writing, Speaking, Pronunciation and TOEFL/IELTS test preparation. For parents looking for tutors for their school-age children, I can help with Reading, Writing, and Speaking skills including reading comprehension, essay writing, and presentation skills.

I love meeting and getting to know students, and I find it very rewarding to help them reach their individual goals. With my Bachelor's Degree in English Language and Literature and my extensive experience in teaching, I feel that I am well-equipped to help students improve their English skills and reach their potential.

I am generally available during the week in the mornings and some afternoons and evenings. I also have limited availability on the weekends. I am available to meet in person or online. My base rate is $50/hr for in-person lessons, but I offer a discounted rate of $40/hr for online lessons. I also offer discounted rates for lessons that are longer than 1 hour at a time. Please contact me for more details!

I look forward to meeting you and working with you to meet your goals!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have about ten years of experience working with elementary school students who are struggling with reading and writing skills. I work with students to improve their reading comprehension skills, vocabulary skills, and writing skills. My Bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature has equipped me not only to help students develop the skills needed for effective reading and writing, but also to enjoy it. My passion for literature helps me to get students excited and energized about the subject. This, in turn, encourages them to develop their skills. I thoroughly enjoy working with young students in this subject area.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature and I have about ten years of experience helping international students with their English. I can help students with Grammar, Reading, Writing, Pronunciation, and Speaking. I can also help students prepare for the TOEFL and IELTS exams.

IELTS

I have about ten years of experience teaching ESL to international students. During this time, I have helped many students prepare for the IELTS. I am very familiar with the different parts of this test and the skills that students need to develop in order to do well on this test. I am confident that I can help students to prepare for and to improve their score for this test.

Korean

I am a native speaker of Korean. Even though I grew up in the US, I never stopped reading, writing, and speaking Korean. I also have experience teaching both Koreans and Americans how to read, write, and speak Korean.

Engaging and knowleadgeable — Ellen was prepared some sample conversations based on the small amount of information I had offered which were perfect in terms of my level of proficiency and the usefulness of the topics. She understands the nuances of Korean language and can explain them to me in perfect English which really helps. I'm looking forward to more lessons! ...
