About Ellen

I first taught English as a Second Language as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ethiopia. That experience hooked me onto teaching as my lifetime profession. I have taught most subjects on many grade levels mostly in public schools in several states for 35 years. Now that I have retired, I have returned to teaching and tutoring English as a Second Language. It was and is my first love in teaching. Since I have traveled in many parts of the world and studied 3 languages, I understand how culture and language enhance the quality of life and I have learned a great deal about how to learn and teach languages.

I have been instructing adults in community college ESL classes and have tutored many adults one on one as a volunteer for several organizations helping immigrants and I've taught preparation for U.S. citizenship classes helping permanent residents go through the process of naturalization successfully. I have a flexible schedule to be able to meet the needs of adult students in a convenient location. But I will require at least 24 hours notice of cancellation of an arranged lesson.

I like to have fun and engage in activities and lessons that help my student and I learn about each other and our cultures and customs. It is my pleasure to help learners of English live a fuller and more relaxed life while here in the USA.

I will meet the challenges you set for improving your English on any level and accommodate your desired areas of language learning, be it speaking, listening, comprehension, reading or writing.
