Do you want better grades and test scores? Do you want to get the most from your classes? Is something holding you back from doing your best? Would you like to ace that entrance exam? Do you want feel comfortable asking questions and get answers that you understand?

I can help you tackle these issues by providing excellent one-to-one tutoring designed specifically to assist you, the individual student. I will review your proficiency, needs, objectives, study habits, test preparation, homework and test-taking skills, put together a plan and work with you to achieve your specific goals.

I have tutored students at all levels for over a decade from Lexington, Newton, Lincoln, Weston, Belmont, Bedford, Wellesley and many other communities.

I tutor both during the summer and the school year.

I am Mass. certified; I tutor for the Lexington Public School System and have passed all the required CORI and background checks to do so. I tutor all levels up through AP courses.

I would love to help you succeed!

Great Tutor!

Ellen is a great tutor. She is very good at bring up my son's interested in reading and writing. She is also very good at the language details.

Helpful Tutor

My daughter is very bright but has not been living up to her potential due to missing homework. Ellen helped her go from C’s and D’s to the honor roll by getting her to stay on top of her homework assignments and pushing her to follow up on missing assignments with her teachers. Ellen helped her realize that honor roll was well within her reach and that she should push herself to achieve more out of school.

Ellen makes learning fun!

Ellen has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra II. Her lessons are engaging. She is patient and thorough and it shows in my daughter's rising grades, with a 95% on the latest test!

Ellen is very helpful

Ellen has been very effective in helping my daughter prepare for her SATs. Her last score increased nearly 100 points. She is invaluable in helping my teen with her essays… Developing thesis statement, etc.

Great tutor!

Ellen has worked with both my children (5th & 7th grade) for several weeks now. Ellen is informative, patient, and prepared. She makes learning fun and engaging. Both my children have highly benefited from having her help them stay on track this summer leading up to the new school year. She has now shifted into helping them with their weekly homework and studying for any upcoming tests and quizzes. We couldn't be happier with the outcome. I highly recommend Ellen!

Very Talented

Ellen has been working with my daughter for approximately 4 months now. Ellen has been great at pushing her to keep better tabs on her work, gives her tips on how to best organize her planner, to ask deeper questions, to write better and express herself more clearly, and identify what are the study skills Carolyn still needs to learn. It is clear that Ellen has much experience working with high school students and knows how to motivate them. As Carolyn's mom, I could not have been as effective and am thrilled to have Ellen work with my daughter. Many thanks to Ellen for all of her diligent work!
