Ellie graduated from UNCW with a degree in Spanish and a K-12 Teaching License in 2013. After spending a year teaching English at a high school in Spain, she returned to Wilmington to pursue an MA in Spanish. Before joining the team at Peak Learning Solutions, Ellie spent three years working at UNCW’s University Learning Center as a Spanish tutor and academic mentor helping students to build up their scholarly toolbelt and reach their goals. She currently teaches Spanish part-time at the Friends School of Wilmington to preschoolers through second graders. Having worked with teenagers before in the classroom and while traveling abroad, Ellie came to Peak as a Spanish instructor and academic coach in the summer of 2016 with a desire to help middle schoolers and high schoolers increase their academic confidence and become stronger students overall.
