About Ellen

I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education (K-3) and another in TESOL (teaching English as a second language). I am a certified teacher with experience teaching and tutoring students from Kindergarten through adulthood, including experience teaching academic writing at the college level. I am comfortable working with students of any age. I am particularly interested in teaching reading and writing, both for native speakers of English and for students learning English. I also have a B.A. in Spanish and could help students in their first year of studying the language.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a license to teach in Vermont and have taught Kindergarten, first, and second grade. I am particularly interested in teaching reading skills, and am excited to help reluctant readers improve their skills and find reading material that interests and motivates them

ESL/ESOL

I have a master's degree in ESL from the University of Texas, and have tutored international students and their families to help improve both their academic and social language competency. I have also volunteered teaching English to Vietnamese immigrants.

Phonics

As an early elementary school teacher, I have experience teaching beginning reading skills and recognize the importance of phonics skills as a crucial component of reading.
