About Ellen

I am a retired Math Teacher with 37 years of experience at the secondary and college levels. I also have experience tutoring elementary and middle school students. I enjoy working with children and adults of all ages. I prefer to tutor in Prealgebra, Algebra I and Algebra II.

My master's degree is in Special Education. All children are special to me. I have also had experience with special needs students. Patience is one of my virtues.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have my Masters in Special Education. I have taught math to ADD/ADHD students at all levels from Elementary to College.

Aspergers

I have my Masters in Special Education. I have taught math to students with many disabilities including students with Aspergers at all levels from Elementary to High School.

Dyslexia

I have my Masters in Special Education. I have taught math to students with many disabilities including students with Dyslexia at all levels from Elementary to College. I help the student deal with number reversals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught math for 37 years to students from Middle School to High School. (grades 6th to 12th.) I have also volunteered with students in Elementary School (K-6th)since I have been retired. I hear parents say that they don't understand the "new math". In my opinion, Math does not change. What changes is the approach to teaching certain concepts. I have my Masters in Special Ed but I consider all students special.

Fantastic!

Ellen is an excellent tutor. She has the patience to deal with me and taught me a lot. I can honestly say I've learned more from her than my teachers. If you need a tutor, I highly recommend her!
