About Ellis

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 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.

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.

Genetics

I have tutored a number of college student in genetics. I received the top scores on all of the tests when I took the subject myself.

MCAT

I have tutored many college students for the MCAT. When I took the test myself for medical school, I received a score of 36 on it: 14 in physical sciences, 12 in verbal reasoning, and 10 in biological sciences.

Organic Chemistry

I have tutored many college students in organic chemistry. In college, I worked with the professor to prep the labs for other students. I received top grades on every test when I took the subject myself.

Great Math Lesson

What a great lesson! I left very happy and felt that I had broken down the the math problems I was having difficulty with. Ellis is a great teacher, he was patient and very attentive, I felt that he really enjoyed and cared about what we were doing. I recommend anyone to have him as a tutor. He is highly qualified on many subjects and I was lucky to have been tutored by him. Thank you!
