Great tutor, very very smart and knowledgeable!

Ellen has been working with our 10th grade son all year, and I look forward to continuing this relationship through high school. Ellen is brilliant and very knowledgeable, particularly in math and science, though I’m sure in all subjects as well. She takes interest in his grades improvement, homework and everything academic. One less thing that I have to think about because she is always looking out for him.

Always prepared and makes full use of hour together.

My sophomore daughter has been seeing Ellen for most of this last school year. She is always prompt, prepared, and very capable in getting ideas across. It has been great to see how confident my daughter has become in their math studies this last year. Highly recommend.

1st lesson was great

Ellen is very easy with our daughter. She was patient and asked lots of questions to help get to the route of her problems. We look forward to continuing to work with her and help math be FUN!

Great test-prep tutor

Ellen worked with my 5th grader son since May. We are so lucky to have her. She has rich experiences and expertise in private school access test preparation (ISEE/SSAT). She fully understands our expectation and customizes a plan for my son. We admire her professional and responsible attitude towards her job. I would like to recommend her to all my friends who intend to send their children to private schools.

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.
