As a classroom teacher, I have always worked under the assumption that every student can succeed with the right learning strategy. For me, teaching has been a vocation, not just a job. I am able to relate to students of all ages. My enthusiasm for learning is contagious, which results in students who also enjoy learning. I am known for my ability to reach every student, even those who originally disliked a subject because they could never succeed. My students would tell you that I am patient, understanding and caring. I believe in being well-prepared, and have continued my education while teaching by taking additional graduate classes in algebra and geometry, attending math and science workshops during the summer. As a member of the National Science Teachers Association, I have also taken many webinars to keep my skills current in science and technology methodology. Colleagues who have observed my instruction have described me as a master teacher in middle school math and science. I have also tutored younger students in my school in math and reading. My students have always achieved proficient or advanced proficient scores on standardized tests because they were so well prepared.

With her vast experience as an educator, Ellen was able to take control of our 5th grader's Language arts and math issues and resolved them quickly.
Ellen helped my kids greatly improve in Math skills. She has many tips and easy ways to learn concepts. My kids understood Math and Science a lot more and they grades were boosted. Excellent tutor for Math or Science
Mrs. Ellen's difference is she applies appropriate teaching method and draws the best from a student quickly.
In the 1.5hr session, my son read and inter-reacted with Mrs. Ellen naturally which he normally does not do to strangers. Mrs. Ellen is very thorough in accessing my son's understanding. Then, she quickly engages him in the session and he followed her through. Her method is to combine speech, reading and fun together. Excellent teacher, excellent session. Thank you, Mrs. Ellen.
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.
