About Ellis


Bio

I am a 52 year old man. I have a bachelor of science degree in biology/pre-med but I began college as a physics major so I have considerable background in most of the physical sciences and mathematics.

I began teaching in Kentucky in 1990 and continued to do so at various levels (K-12) until 2007. The majority of my teaching experience is with high school mathematics from pre-algebra to calculus, but I have also taught physics and chemistry as an adjunct professor at the college...

I began teaching in Kentucky in 1990 and continued to do so at various levels (K-12) until 2007. The majority of my teaching experience is with high school mathematics from pre-algebra to calculus, but I have also taught physics and chemistry as an adjunct professor at the college level.

I left teaching in 2007 to attend medical school but it became clear to me that being a medical doctor was not something that I would enjoy doing. So I left medical school to seek out new interests.

Here are a few examples of my past endeavors that may give you some insight into my commitment to excellence in performance and goal based achievement: As an academic coach my teams won numerous district and regional titles as well as two state titles. My teams at engineering competitions like the Team America Rocketry Challenge have done well too. Due to my experiences with coaching basketball, I have great interest and respect for team sports and athletics. I have also won tournaments in chess and scrabble.

If you need help with any math or science topics, then it is very likely that I can help you. Send an email to set up a time and place.

Great Algebra 2 tutor

Ellis is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. He has really helped my Son understand his Algebra 2 better. We will definitely be scheduling more sessions.

Nicole, 7 lessons with Ellis

Very accomidating

Ellis was on time and ready to provide services. Bravo. Our meeting place was very easy for us to access. My Daughter was much more confident about her Algeba2 final.

Jamie, 1 lesson with Ellis

Knowledgeable and patient

Great tutor! He knows a variety of subject matter and was able to help across the board with various subjects- Physics, AP calculus and Algebra 2. He was able to explain things in a different way

Tami , 19 lessons with Ellis

Helpful

Helped me better understand limits in calculus. I would recommend Ellis to a friend or anyone who is struggling to understand limits. We were able to review the problems that I missed on my test and clear up any confusion.

Nathan, 1 lesson with Ellis

Thorough, Patient, and Knowledgeable

I will be returning for more sessions over the span of my college education. One session gave me the confidence I needed to attach tough calculus problems a second time. What I learned over the session empowered me to apply new knowledge and make my way through assignments independently. I'm so thrilled to have found such a wonderful tutor!

Amanda, 1 lesson with Ellis

Very knowledgeable and helpful

Ellis taught me different methods for studying the quantittative portion of the GRE. I'm not very good in math but he made it seem so easy! Can't wait for the second session.

Tiffani, 1 lesson with Ellis

Thank you so much for your compassion as you also guide my daughter through geometry.

It was so good to see my daughter feel more confident after one session. Looking forward to more sessions . Awesome tutor! Thank you so much for today!

Great tutor and would recommend!

Ellis has helped me during the semester with organic chemistry. He helped me go over details that maybe I had missed before but was important throughout the whole class. I feel I had a greater understanding of organic chemistry even though it is a hard class after tutoring with Ellis. Great tutor and would recommend!!!

Mary B, 9 lessons with Ellis

Very knowledgeable & kind

Met for College Algebra review- Ellis was helpful and clear. He met with me on short notice and was understanding when I arrived a bit late due to logistics. Would recommend👍🏻
