About Ellen

I am currently entering my second year of veterinary school at the University of Florida and obtained my Bachelor's of Science in Biological Engineering in from UF in 2012. I am in St. Petersburg area for the summer and I'm eager to tutor with the aim of helping others with subjects I have thrived in.

My engineering background provided me with an extensive background in mathematics and the applied sciences. For veterinary school I was required to take all pre-medical school courses and excelled in the natural and life sciences. This coursework included: Calculus 1-3, Differential Equations, Chemistry 1-2, Organic Chemistry 1-2, Biochemistry, Biology 1-2, Microbiology and Genetics.

Additionally, I am very familiar with the SAT and ACT, FCAT and the GRE. I am currently assisting students prep for these exams and have seen great improvement in their testing abilities.

In undergraduate I worked as a teaching assistant for a Comparative Psychology course. Additionally, I was the academic chair in my professional engineering fraternity where I helped many students with their coursework. I am confident that I will be able to help students of various ages and levels in topics which can be complicated and challenging.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you excel in your coursework and schooling.

Awesome tutor — We found Ellen after Tutorworks failed to grade my biology pretest. What a good choice we made! She can tutor algebra, biology, and more subjects. Biology can really be understood when Ellen explains it to you. I feel way more confident about my learning ability after only 3 days of sessions! Thank you, Ellen! ...
