About Ellie


Bio

As a university professor of the Humanities, I have taught at the university level for many years. I have also tutored for the SAT for more than twenty years, and most students raise their SAT scores by around 300 points. I can provide recommendations from parents and students. I also teach students how to write high-scoring SAT essays, and assist students in writing impressive personal statement essays for their college applications.

Patient, Kind, Empathetic, and Incredibly Effective Tutor

Ellie tutored our daughter for the English/Writing section of the SAT. Aside from being patient, kind, and empathetic - our daughter raised her SAT English/Writing section score by over 100 points (after a first try). We are so grateful to have found Ellie and to have entrusted our daughter to her, I highly recommend her for English/Writing tutoring, and we hope our Son will be fortunate enough to be her student next year. So grateful!

Ellie is a really good english SAT tutor

Ellie knows what she's doing and is very knowledgeable. My son came home and said he was learning a lot and seemed very satisfied. I am confident that he is in good hands.

Teresa, 6 lessons with Ellie

Very professional and happy with her work. she definitely knows what she is doing

Very good teacher, in my personal view there are many people that have knowledge but not very many have the talent or the know how to teach to others. She does have that talent.
