About Ellen

I am a teacher experienced in working with students from kindergarten through high school, with an emphasis in history and social science, and language arts. My teaching resume is as varied as the backgrounds and abilities of the students that I have worked with. I bring enthusiasm to each subject and believe that learning is vibrant and should be enjoyed.

I am certified in both NYC and the State of Connecticut to teach Social Studies on the secondary level. I taught Social Studies in 5th grade for 10 years in both Elementary school and Middle School in Monroe, CT and taught Social Studies to 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students at Masuk High School in Monroe, CT for 15 years.

Additionally, I taught Advanced Placement U.S. History and Civics to high school juniors and sophomores.

Additionally, I recently acquainted myself with and navigated a child through the complicated process of testing into the NYC Gifted and Talented program. Within a low stress atmosphere, I used learning games and playful strategies to tutor my grandson. Relying on sound educational practices, and well focused vocabulary, I guided him through the testing process and admission into a citywide G&T school.

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.
