About Ellen

I am a professional educator with over 10 years teaching experience as a Classroom Head Teacher and as a Special Education Teacher. Throughout my teaching career I have taught students with a range of special education needs ranging from dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, Hearing Impaired, language and communication learning disabilities, literacy and numeracy difficulties.

I have competed the Associate Level Training with Orton-Gillingham Academy. Orton GIllingham is an instructional approach intended primarily for use with persons who have difficulty with reading, spelling, and writing of the sort associated with dyslexia. It is most properly understood and practiced as an approach. The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a direct, systematic and structured. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced instructor, it is a powerful tool of exceptional breadth, depth, and flexibility.

I have always adapted my teaching style to address the individual needs of each child using a multi-sensory approach to teaching. All tutoring lesson are adapted to the individual needs of the child and addressed using a sequential, direct, multi-sensory approach,

Methodologies of Instruction in Teaching Experience
•Model teaching – mini lessons, scaffolding, using visual cues, word walls,
•Direct teaching- instruction, scaffolding, recall
•Multi-sensory approach – Hands on approach, active discovery learning using auditory, visual and kinaesthetic approaches – examples below

•Auditory – listening, class discussions, recording stories and listening to self correct
•Visual – highlighting, using visual aids, charts, graphs, videos, iPad apps
•Kinaesthetic – appealing to the senses, touch; particularly useful for poetry, writing, science, math

I personally use the multi-sensory approach to teach Literacy- Reading, Writing and Spelling. I also use this approach and strategies to teach Science and Math. Children with language disorders and dyslexia require a variety of stimuli to motivate and facilitate their learning. Active discovery learning makes the tutoring sessions fun!

Your child will achieve success through my competent planning and organizational skills, effective teaching methodologies and efficient leadership qualities. All my student thoroughly enjoy the tutoring session. We achieve personal successes during each session. I promote positive learning, the development of self confidence and raised self esteem.
