About Ellen

I specialize in tutoring middle school math including algebra to all types of learning styles. I have a master's degree in special education, and I am highly qualified to teach math. My classroom typically looks like a group of students working at their own pace and being challenged at different levels.

I am especially successful at getting through to students with low self confidence in math and breaking things down into smaller, more obtainable steps that are easily understood. I engage different teaching techniques and try to spark the interest of all learners.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.
