About Ellen

Hello everyone! I am ready and eager to help your young child achieve their goals and triumphs! Every child deserves an opportunity to learn, and can and will learn with the proper guidance and instruction.

I hold a Teacher of the Handicapped Certification from Montclair State University and a BA in Psychology from Rutgers University. I have also completed 46 credits towards my Masters Degree in Teaching. As I enter a new phase in my life after raising my own two children, I’ve decided to devote myself to helping other children reach some new milestones! My oldest child is a practicing Attorney in NY, and the other is a High School Senior, who is graduating in June and heading off to college to follow her own dreams!

I consider my strongest skills to be teaching reading and writing on an elementary level. I welcome any questions and will gladly negotiate my fee schedule. My hours are flexible and I am confident they can be worked out to fit your needs. Thank you for your interest and for looking at my profile. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Reading

I have always loved to read and have taught my own children. and other children, the basics of reading, which gave them the confidence to read independently for life.

Special Needs

My teaching certification is in Teacher of the Handicapped and I passed the Praxis exam qualifying me to teach K-12. I also have 41 of 46 credits toward my Masters of Teaching Degree. I am most comfortable teaching children in elementary school the following subjects: reading, phonics, and writing. I have worked with children in pre-school handicapped classes, kindergarten classes, and middle and high school students and am confident I can comfortably teach elementary grade level subjects to students who are in need of extra help.
