I love language and history. Therefore, I pursued my BA in English/History & Theology at a small, intimate college on Long Island. While a student at this college and for a year after graduating Magna Cum Laude, I had a wonderful opportunity to work with a diverse population of students writing papers as well as helping them prepare oral presentations.

Then too, working at Molloy College I worked with a wide range of the Hispanic population in the evening helping them become proficient in E...

Ellen is simply amazing. I was having a really hard time finding someone who could work with me who understood the uchicago Humanities core and the works with in it outside of uchicago,but then I found Ellen. She was a tremendous help when it came to sharpening my analyses as well as showing me the importance of having a "so what" paragraph! She also was incredibly encourageing and patient when it came to my persistent issues with grammar. I have adhd,so I tend to have multiple words missing, sudden changes in tenses,or ideas that kind of trail, however , Ellen helped me so much when it came to fixing these things. I am so so grateful for her services.

Ellen is going to work on Language and Writing with our son, whow struggles in the's areas.. Today was their first meeting.
- Marla W. from Surprise, AZ
Ellen, hands down, is the best! She gave support at a moments notice. We were caught up in a failing situation; however, Ellen gave her expertise advice and my grand daughter came out of what seemed to be an impossible situation with two assignments left to bring her grade to passing. Ellen's professional attitude did not omit kindness and concern over what was an overwhelming class and professor. The passing grade came about due to Ellen's commitment and skills. We will never be able to thank her enough! Thanks Ellen

- Maria N. from Paradise Valley, AZ
Ellen taught me medical coding, specifically CPT coding on Injections/Transfusions and chemotherapy. Ellen is very patient and walked me through the coding book to help me understand why a procedure would be coded a certain way. She also worked on case examples with me and helped me understand why a certain code was used.

Mrs. Ellen has been such a blessing to us. She has helped my son so very much. He needed to take a placement test and I only had three weeks to have him ready. Mrs. Ellen saw him 2 days a week for 3 weeks and he aced his test!! Mrs. Ellen has made it fun and exciting for my 5 year old son to learn. He loves it so much that he is asking all day how to spell, he wants to write, read. Thanks to Mrs. Ellen!!! We will continue to use her through the summer. At the start of the school year she will start working with my daughter!

Ellen has been amazing throughout all our sessions. We did it online since we live in different states but you would never know it, it was like having her here sitting next to me. Ellen has the quickest response time I have ever seen. Ellen gave me confidence and support when i needed it most. She was calm and patient with me even when i had difficulties. She is the nicest most accommodating tutor and she really knows her stuff!!
- Tami S. from Plano, TX
She is reliable, very patient with her student, and professional. Friendly, and organized, she provides feedback after each session. Completes assessments on a regular basis to check the progress of the student. She also provides resources to assist the student to strengthen their comprehension skills. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor. I have seen a great improvement in my child's ability to read.
- Glynis S. from Phoenix, AZ
Ellen has been wonderful with my child. She's really worked with us on scheduling and what is needed for my child per week. She is very patient and provides feedback at the end of the session. She even provided my child with books and worksheets to help promote growth in the subject we are working on. My child loves working with her and looks forward to the next time.
- Chanell S. from Glendale, AZ
Ellen was fantastic and provided some resources she used on the job. Ellen makes the lesson easier to understand. He attitude is what you want in a teacher.
- Susan C. from Surprise, AZ
Ellen has been implementing a home school curriculum for my twins for 19 hours a week. Not only have all the tears and frustrations stopped, but their confidence in learning has skyrocketed and they are back on track for 3rd grade. She is very creative, patient and passionate about teaching. Exactly what every kid needs.
- Jennifer C. from Scottsdale, AZ
Ellen came to our first meeting prepared to begin tutoring - primarily for reading comprehension to develop critical thinking. My 9 year old daughter and I immediately liked Ellen's style and teaching approach. She is gentle and positive, aligned with core learning and very organized. Ellen is passionate about reading and literature. Ellen recommended excellent ideas explore to support my daughter's learning outside of tutoring. My daughter looks forward to her special time with Ellen and I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend Ellen as a tutor.
- Jennifer M. from Scottsdale, AZ
Ellen has been working with both my 8 year old daughters, helping them with Phonics, Language Arts, Handwriting and Writing lessons. She is kind and patient. Both girls enjoy working with Ellen. The girls strive to do their best with Ellen's encouragement.

Ellen is a great tutor! She knows exactly how to help me and makes me feel comfortable. She's very patient and such a nice tutor. I've gotten so far with her tutoring!
- Alice Y. from Phoenix, AZ
Ellen is a wonderful English tutor for my 12 year old daughter. Ellen reads the novel that my daughter is required to read for school and really engages her in conversation and writing regarding events in the book. Ellen is flexible with time (staying longer or cutting it shorter) when needed and even allows us to contact her by phone to ask questions. It has really been a great experience working with her.
- Stacey H. from Phoenix, AZ
Ellen is an outstanding tutor who is very patient and thorough. She has been tutoring me in my religion class, and as a result I have an A+ in my class so far and that is because of her help and dedication! I would highly recommend her as she is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
