About Ellen


Bio

I am a US citizen and a native English speaker. One of my greatest joys is to see a student be able to speak in English the way that he or she wants to speak, so that communications are equal and open between people.

My recent master's degree is in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), including two practica (TESOL and Linguistics) and a thesis. Moreover, I have consulted and trained professionals flying into Boston for individually tailored, intensive English trainings...

I am a US citizen and a native English speaker. One of my greatest joys is to see a student be able to speak in English the way that he or she wants to speak, so that communications are equal and open between people.

My recent master's degree is in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), including two practica (TESOL and Linguistics) and a thesis. Moreover, I have consulted and trained professionals flying into Boston for individually tailored, intensive English trainings within short timeframes for more than six years. For all levels of ESL/EFL--from 0 English through high advanced including corporate C-suite, international law, and higher education faculty English skills--I have been an instructor and teacher for 10+ years. My objective is to see the greatest potential of every individual be realized in skills and strategies that are the most meaningful to the person to achieve his/her goals.

My bachelor's degree is in Education, with the additional speech and language pathology emphasis and training, including special education. In addition, I have been a high school academic and jobs coach/trainer for young adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Finally, I am a Miracle League volunteer assisting young adults with ASD.

Through my customized trainings, I look forward to seeing you find greater confidence while succeeding in your desired English communications goals and academic objectives.

Writing

I tutor writing and enjoy every individual finding his or her voice. I also want them to feel the confidence of knowing they have the skills sets to comfortably proofread and edit their writing when needed. It is important that students have the possibility to practice creative writing and free verse as well as the typical academic style.

Knowledgeable and attentive

I am a clinical consultant for healthcare technology company & I do presentations for healthcare leadership. Ellen helped me to replace non-meaningful utterances (um..) with pausing, increase self monitoring skills, cultural & inflectional meaning differences and fluency in speech. She also helped to establish new skills of increasing energy level and engaging with the audience and day to day life. She is very friendly, attentive and supportive.
