“**Easy to understand**”

Hello Prospective Students and Parents!

My name is Ellen and I just finished my Master of Science in Physics from Georgia State University. I earned my undergraduate degrees from University of Hawaii and did a double major of Bachelor's of Science of Astronomy and Bachelor of Arts in Physics. I also earned a minor in Math because I LOVE

Background Check:
Passed

In-person lessons

My daughter was having a rough time understanding her calculus teacher when she met with Lee Ellen for her first session afterwards she told me that she spoke plain language and not "math" and it helped her to understand better.

She was able to help my son establish focus areas in a very short time frame and he was able to see the benefits immediately.

Great teacher! Super Smart and amazing at explaining the information. She helped me understand astronomy better then my professor could.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have tutored students for the ACT math test extensively in both Hawaii and in Texas. I am very familiar with the test format and timing. Algebra, Geometry and Trig are the area covered on this test, and the timed format can make it a challenge for a lot of students. I am very well versed in these subjects as I have been using them daily in my studies for many years, and I am also very good at helping students acquire methods of quick problems solving ideal for the ACT test format.

I have tutored students for the ACT Science test extensively in both Hawaii and in Texas. I am very familiar with the test format and timing. Data representation, Research Summaries and Conflicting viewpoints are the areas covered on this test, and the timed format can make it a challenge for a lot of students. I am very well versed in these subjects as a graduate student you spend 60% of your time reading and understanding research papers which covers all three of the subject areas. I am also very good at helping students acquire methods of quick problems solving without getting caught up in the over-wordiness of the science problems which is ideal for the ACT test format.

Algebra is used consistently through physics and astronomy. I have an undergraduate bachelor's degree in both of these fields, along with a minor in Math. I also have a Master's in Physics. I have been using algebra almost daily for over 15 years. I have tutored friends and students in this area of study. I have also been teaching algebra-based physics labs for the past 3 years.

Algebra 2 is used consistently throughout physics and astronomy. I have an undergraduate bachelor's degree in both of these fields, along with a minor in math. I also have a master's in physics. I have been using algebra 2 almost daily for over 15 years. I have tutored friends and students in this area of study. I have also been teaching algebra-based physics labs, which incorporates both algebra 1 and algebra 2, for the past three years.

I have been using Calculus almost daily for over 11 years. I have tutored friends and students in this area of study. I have also been teaching calculus-based physics labs for the past 2 years. I took and got A+ in Calculus 1, 2, 3 & 4 in college as well so am well studied on all levels of Calculus.

Pre-algebra is the foundation for many future levels of mathematics and is an inherent part of my knowledge!

Pre-Calculus makes sure a student understands the basic elements they will need to proceed onto calculus, thus my calculus qualifications also serve as pre-calculus qualification!

I earned a perfect score on the Math section of my SAT junior year in high school. I am very familiar with all the areas of math covered and have tutored friends for the math section of the SAT. I have the following degrees: Bachelor of Science in Astronomy, Bachelor of Arts in Physics, Minor in Math, and Master of Science in Physics. All of these degrees rely very heavily on math, and in fact, math is my favorite subject of all! I love doing math at all levels and even more I love teaching math.

Trigonometry is an integral part of all upper level mathematics. I have been using trig in my studies for many years and am thus VERY familiar with this subject. I have tutored many students in Trig, whether is was for a specific trig class, or it was physics or calculus or a number of other subjects where trig is a key part! This is one of my favorite subjects to teach and I have a lot of good methods for remembering the needed trig identities and understanding trig on a conceptual level.
