About Ellen


Bio

I am a Harford County Public Schools math teacher. I have been in mathematics education for over 20 years, and have taught every secondary math subject from 7th grade math to AP Calculus, including SAT Prep.

I have a Master's Degree in Secondary Math Education and worked for ten years in educational publishing, writing and editing math books, tests, and other materials. I have three teenage children of my own who keep me busy outside the classroom with sports and other activities.

I am a Harford County Public Schools math teacher. I have been in mathematics education for over 20 years, and have taught every secondary math subject from 7th grade math to AP Calculus, including SAT Prep.

I have a Master's Degree in Secondary Math Education and worked for ten years in educational publishing, writing and editing math books, tests, and other materials. I have three teenage children of my own who keep me busy outside the classroom with sports and other activities.

What I love about tutoring is the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with students. I often find that simply hearing the same content from a different voice - maybe explained a little differently - is all it takes to uncover what a student already knows and to help put the pieces together to fill in any blanks the student has in their knowledge. I love the instant results of tutoring and the sense of confidence it gives a student when they walk back into class the next day.

I am very familiar with HCPS math curricula, common core math standards, and all secondary math content. My strength as a teacher lies in meeting a student where he/she is, building knowledge to bridge the gap between what is known and what still needs to be learned. My strength lies in clarity of explanations and in helping students understand "why" things work like they do in mathematics.

Great Session

My daughter loved her. She is in no way looking forward to taking the SATs but I think she will feel more comfortable after sitting with Ellen.

Great personality and connection

Ellen made our child feel at ease and comfortable, which made learning much easier. She was encouraging and complimentary helping confidence grow. We recommend Ellen for your student also!

Very Knowledgeable!

Ellen was very knowledgeable about high school math as well as the SAT. She was able to identify the areas my son needs help and also give him suggestions to simplify the SAT exam.
