Update on 18/11/2012. I was failing in my chemistry class. I had 0 in my quiz and D on all the major exams. I was about to drop this class. I took some lessons with Ellen, we worked on the objectives for my exam #3. I got an A in both quizzes prior the exam. I got my result today and I got a B+ in my Exam. I am ecstatic with my new grade. SO HAPPY. Ellen is the best!!!
I am so happy I found Ellen. She makes Chemistry so much more understandable. I feel so good that a lot of the stuff that looked Greek to me is starting making sense. She is very organized, she knows the subject VERY WELL, but more important than knowing the subject is knowing how to teach in a way that I understand it. I tried 3 different tutors before is obvious they know chemistry but they didn't know how to explain it to me. Her rates are fair, it really worth every penny. I was hopeless thinking I would have to drop this class, so glad I met her.
Ellen was able to come last minute to tutor my daughter for a chemistry quiz. She explained things in a way that helped my daughter better understand the material. My daughter said the session was very helpful.
She went over more genetics in preparation for a test on Monday. Our daughter feels much more confident now about taking the test. I would recommend her for anyone having trouble with Biology.
My son was struggling in Biology. Ellen’s patient, knowledgeable approach taught my son, in one hour, the DNA concepts that he was having difficulty learning. He is now well prepared are far more confident for the upcoming assessment in school. She is an amazing tutor!
Ellen has been wonderful for my daughter. She is patient, knowledgeable, and always on time! Hearing another explanation or rationale for Chemistry concepts and problems has helped so much. Her grades have gone from 'C's to 'A's.
Ellen has exceeded expectations. She clearly has an exceptional understanding of subject matter and how to make concepts meaningful and easier to understand. I was impressed from the first meeting when she came with her own material and organizers which were extremely useful supplements. Within a few session Ellen's can-do perspective helped turn D's to A's. I highly recommend Ellen without hesitation.
Excellent tutor, willing to tutor more than 1 hour when needed. Very helpful with a rapidly paced summer class. Available more than 1 time per week as the class became more difficult. My daughter found her very helpful!
My daughter was having a hard time understanding Chemistry explained by her own Chem teacher. Ellen was able to explain it in a way she could understand it and the relief I saw on her face when she was finished with the session was priceless. Thank you so much Ellen!
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.
