About Ella

I have been tutoring for four years in several subjects, both for community service and for pay. While I am not planning to go into education, I truly enjoy getting to know my students, and I hope that they feel my service benefits them as well.

There is no feeling more satisfying than knowing my students are successful and are happy with my services. I love helping students finally put the pieces together while working on a problem they don't quite understand, or helping them figure out how to edit their essay in order to maximize their potential in a classroom.

I am one of the undergraduate editors for my college newspaper. I received a 36 on both the English and Reading sections of the ACT and also have won several writing awards. For my paper, I serve as a News Editor and Copy Chief, meaning that I both write articles on a variety of subjects and edit articles for grammar and spellings mistakes.

To learn more about me, please contact me! I would love to speak with you, and I hope to schedule a lesson soon.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT English

English has always been one of my strongest (and favorite!) school subjects, and I received a 36 on the ACT English section. When I started college, I realized that I could tutor students for the ACT English section, and I have been helping students prepare for the exam for the last year.

English

I am an undergraduate editor for my college newspaper and have never received lower than an "A" in an English class throughout my years in school. Throughout high school and college, I have edited my peers' papers for them upon request. I received perfect scores on the English and Reading portions of the ACT. I've also won multiple writing contests, including a journalism award in high school.

Grammar

I am the Copy Chief of my college's newspaper, Student Life, and I pride myself on my ability to correct grammar. In high school, I helped tutor students who had just started learning English, and we focused significantly on grammar rules. Additionally, I received a perfect score on the ACT's English section, which tests a student's grammar knowledge.

Proofreading

As an undergraduate editor of my school's newspaper, I spend a significant amount of time proofreading essays each week. I received perfect scores on both the Reading and English sections of the ACT, as well as a perfect score on the essay. Nothing brings me more pleasure than making a good essay into a great one!

Vocabulary

Through an intense love of literature, I have developed an extensive vocabulary, which only expanded when I began studying for the SAT in high school. I have always loved English literature, and I enjoy sharing my passion for words with others (I've even taught my mother, a Brown University graduate, a number of vocabulary words she'd never heard before). Although I'm often a firm believer in developing new, original study methods, I believe that vocabulary is often best learned through flash cards. I do, however, encourage students to make connections between different words, which has been helpful for me when learning new vocabulary.

Writing

As an undergraduate editor for my college newspaper, Student Life, I have written over forty published articles on a wide variety of topics. In high school, I served as Editor-in-Chief of my school paper, and I was responsible for editing all of the paper's content. In addition to my work as an editor, I was also paid to write test tip articles. I have also won a number of writing contests, and I have been tutoring students in writing for four years.
