Get ahead in school, get ahead in life!

I offer private classes to help students of all ages advance beyond their peers. A highly qualified graduate of NYU's prestigious Steinhardt School of Education, I'm a New York State-licensed teacher and the founder of Pen Paper Imagination, providing one-on-one and group mentoring in Literacy, Reading, Writing, Creative Writing and Math.

Let me get your kids prepared for tests! In addition to helping your children understand classes in math (grades 1-5), reading and creative writing (all grades), I offer exam preparation for SHSAT, GED, SAT, ACT, ISEE, History Regents, State Exams for elementary and middle schools and much more.

Play therapy is also one of my passions. I work closely with younger children ( ages 1-5) to teach them the value of play and especially work on developing play skills for self soothing and independent play.

It's not just for kids - I also provide essay help and essay editing for college students.

Parents: I am a private education consultant to parents, if you are looking to place your child in a new school or doing research on which schools are best for your child I will gladly help!

Excellent. Knowledgeable and patient

Ellie is very patient. She teaches my son strategies for reading and understanding text for the SAT. She assigns him homework to practice what they are learning.

Dependable, student-friendly, a motivator

Ellie was the tutor to one of my students and she taught her SAT English. She was able to motivate her towards studies, motivate her to read appropriate novels in a short time. My student seemed quite pleased with her teaching and the lessons went on till she took the actual SAT exam.

Sara, 8 lessons with Ellie

Amazing! Will definitely use her again.

As parents we want someone who can get our kids where they need to be academically, but I also think, we want someone who can help us, as parents, to do the same. Ellie is that someone. Ellie started tutoring my son in March until the end of August 2015 he was in 2nd grade at the time. She is extremely knowledgeable not just on the academic side, but also in terms of the social and emotional side of what helps a child learn. She always put the comfort of my son first. I was very happy with the fact that Ellie challenged my son by introducing him to math and math concepts that were above his grade level at the time. She knew that math was his favorite subject, and capitalized on that. Ellie had him simplifying, dividing, and multiplying, fractions and mixed fractions. He is in 3rd grade now and is doing extremely well. He's improved in his reading fluency, and is really developing a love for writing, thanks to the work that Ellie did with him, and the advice she gave us. She lets you know all the things your child will need in the beginning. She also makes use of technology in her teaching methods, like apps you can download and use with your child on your own. She even started teaching him beginner finger placement for typing, on her ipad. Ellie uses enough different techniques to keep a child interested and engaged. She was always available to answer questions, and always open to input from us. If you want a tutor that can put both yourself and your child at ease, who is very competent, who makes use of EVERY minute they are with your child, and who your child will genuinely love working with, so you will see results, Ellie is the tutor for you!

Thank you!!! Your child is a wonderful person and you're a fantastic mom.

Great Tutor

Ellie prepared my son for the Lower Level ISEE test. She was always very professional, punctual and pleasant; my son was comfortable working with her from the first session. My son says, "She was a great tutor and she made studying fun by giving me activities that were not too hard for my level but not too easy. She gave me challenges and kept pushing me to do better. I felt well-prepared for the test, thanks to her." We highly recommend Ellie!

Awesome Tutor

Ellie has been tutoring my son for the GED for about 2 months, she is wonderful! She is very patient, encouraging, and professional and also makes the lessons very personable. My son is very comfortable with her and actually looks forward to his next tutoring session. Ellie also keeps me up to date with emails of their sessions and is detailed with what they have worked on and what he needs improvement with, as well as what he has accomplished. I would most definitely recommend Ellie, she is awesome!
