Math Mom Ellen - I am a former Engineer in high tech and Middle school math teacher. With more than 15 years' teaching and tutoring experience, I know that all children can have success with math - they can internalize a positive, healthy idea that "I'm getting pretty good at this, and I even find this interesting."

Lucky to have her
Having never used a tutor we felt like we must have lucked out, Ellen made everything so easy. Ellen was efficient, courteous, very flexible and accommodating. Our son felt very comfortable with Ellen and she made him feel successful at every turn. Her methods were thorough and her lessons were fun for our child. We utilized her skills for 7 months and felt like she became one of the family. I would recommend Ellen to anyone she is well worth it.

Ellen was a great tutor, very patient and very accommodating regarding schedule changes.
Ellen helped me with theorems I did not understand and could explain things in different ways if I did not understand the first time. She was willing to stay longer than an hour if I needed the help. She helped me pass geometry.

Terrific!
Ellen is a prompt email and phone responder, and very easy to talk with regarding scheduling and educational needs. She arrived punctually and got right to work with my daughter, working steadily for the next 105 minutes! They were able to cover the homework, review quizzes and study for an upcoming exam. I like Ellen's style of review; she asked my daughter to explain the formula as if she were teaching the material to Ellen. Very creative and interactive, as well as confidence-building. She also gave lots of positive feedback during the lesson, along with clear instruction. All around this was a positive experience.
