Ellen is tutoring my daughter for her SAT. They have had 3 sessions so far and it has been great. So far it has been a very positive experience.
I have used Ellen for a test prep and math tutoring and I have always been very pleased with her. She is flexible and fits tutoring into my children's busy schedules. She is very knowledgeable and we prepared. She is my go-to tutor and is always a part of our academic planning. I have recommended her to many friends and they have all been pleased with her as well.
Elhana said Ellen was patient and explained things in an easy to understand way. They went over the basics for SAT/ACT scores. Elhana will be seeing her for tutoring again.
Ellen is amazing! Her patience & way of explaining the Algebra problems have helped my daughter tremendously. We're so thankful to have found her! I highly tecommend Ellen
Our daughter has had one session with Ellen, and she learned so much. Ellen was patient and explained things in a way that helped our daughter understand the content. Our daughther's Chem teacher was pleased with our daughters knowledge at school the next day. Look forward to more sessions with Ellen!
1st session with Ellen went very well for my daughter. Ellen went through a number of problems, step by step, making sure my daughter was following along. Was able to explain things in a straightforward, simple manner.
As a weak reader, Ellen showed me strategys to help me while i am completing the reading comprehension portion.
Ellen gave good tips on how to approach the ACT math questions. She worked with the boys to determine their improvement areas. She was prompt and had a great temperament. I am happy we chose her.
My son took the ACT (second time around) today. His weakness was geometry. He reports he felt much more confident after today's test due to tutor session with Ms. Ellen.
Ellen is very knowledgeable about the ACT test. She has been very helpful and I like that she assigns homework for each lesson as that has been helpful in preparation.
Ellen was able to catch my daughter up to speed for an upcoming Honors Geometry test with only one tutoring session! My daughter made an 89! Success!! Wonderful tutor. Very impressed!
Mrs. O is such an amazing tutor!!! Mrs. O made such a great 1st impression on my 17 year old son that he is excited about their next tutoring session. My son expressed how much more he learned with this one on one session.
My son looks forward to his time with Mrs. O - he feels more confident about his classes since he has been meeting with her. She knows Algebra, Chemistry, and SAT.....she is the whole package!
Ellen knows how to zero in on the weakness and is an excellent tutor. She knows the subject of chemistry exceptionally well.
Ms. O is tutoring our son in pre-calculus this year. Our son has struggled with math since we moved to Georgia, and we are happy to have found Ms. O. She's a reliable, patient, and knowledgeable tutor. Ms. O. helps our son with his homework and prepares him for quizzes and tests. We feel he has a firm grasp of the subject, feels more confident in the classroom, and has maintained his grades. Many thanks to Ms. O. for taking the stress out of math!!
Ellen is very knowledgeable and very accommodating. She is a great tutor and a very nice person. I would strongly recommend her for her skills!
Always very prepared, patient, and meticulous. Have used her now for the last 2 years teaching our kids and she has made a huge difference.
She has been wonderful. My daughter feels very confident about the subject by the time the lesson is over. Thanks Ellen!
Ellen does a great job with our daughter. She is easy to get ahold of and is very patient with her.
Ellen arrived on time and ready to work. She was polite, professional and helped our 15 year old identify multiple methods to understand and solve chemistry problems. My 15 year old was delighted. We're grateful for Ellen. I highly recommend Ellen.
Ellen has been wonderful with my son and he seems to slowly be gaining more confidence in math. I am very thankful for her willingness to go over basics he should have learned earlier. She is highly recommended!
Ellen has been wonderful working with my son. She has really made such a difference to his overall attitude in this class. On the last homework assignment he was the only one in class to show all his work and get 100% because if how Ellen taught him how to do it. Worth every penny.
Ellen O. has been tutoring my daughter for her SAT test for the past month. She is very patient, low key and thorough. I feel very pleased to have her help my daughter with her Math. We are going to continue tutoring for the ACT later this month with her!
Ellen is a great tutor, very patient, professional. She always show up on time, calls you if something change. She is very professional and knowledgeable. My daughter was very happy with her. I definitely recommend her!
Ellen was able to fit my daughter in quickly so she could go over the material for her algebra 2 exam she was having that week.
Ellen is an excellent teacher. She is very patient and is able to explain the lessons to my daughter so that she understands the steps. My daughter always feels more confident after the lesson is over. The most recent lesson Ellen got home and looked something up and called her about it. She definitely goes out of her way for my daughter and we appreciate her attention to detail and her friendly nature.
Ellen, Thank you for working with my daughter today! She came home feeling much more confident. She said you really took the time to make sure she understood. Much appreciated!
Ellen was exactly what I hoped we could find in a tutor. She was very knowledgeable, patient, and had a pleasant personality with my son. I'm sure she will be hearing again from us in the near future.
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 a degree in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech. I've been tutoring high school and college chemistry for over ten years.
