About Ellen

I love to learn and love teaching others to become life-long learners! I have been teaching for 15 years, grades ranging from Pre-K to 5th. I have worked with students who are reading and doing math above grade level, as well as those who perform well below grade level. With both groups, I am able tailor lessons to meet their needs. I can do the same for your child! I will use games, mini-projects, and online lessons to help your child excel in reading, writing and/or math. I will work with you to create the optimal experience for your child during our sessions.


I have been using the common core for the past three years as a teacher in public schools.

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.

Common Core

I have been implementing the Common Core in my classrooms since the Philadelphia School District adopted it 3 years ago. As a result, I am familiar with CCSS for grades K to 5, but especially, 2nd and 4th. I do a great deal of research online to find activities, lessons, games, etc. to help my students meet the standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am PA certified in Elementary Education. Two years ago, I completed the 24 post-baccalaureate credits to obtain a permanent certification. I have 15 years' teaching experience in both public and private schools, having taught grade Pre-K to 4th.
