About Ella


Bio

I have over 7 years of tutoring experience and I love helping people learn. I work to create a learning environment where students feel empowered to ask questions, more confident in their ability to learn new things, and calmer in the pressure of a test-taking environment. I once felt intimidated by science, and I can thank my high school biology teacher for turning that intimidation into excitement. I hope I can do the same for other students!

I have over 7 years of tutoring experience and I love helping people learn. I work to create a learning environment where students feel empowered to ask questions, more confident in their ability to learn new things, and calmer in the pressure of a test-taking environment. I once felt intimidated by science, and I can thank my high school biology teacher for turning that intimidation into excitement. I hope I can do the same for other students!

I recently graduated from Wesleyan University with a double major in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry and Art. I think there is enormous untapped value in the bridge between science and art: to translate science, or any other complex discipline, into verbal and visual language that is digestible and compelling for anyone. I enjoyed working as an Introductory Biology and Organic Chemistry peer tutor and Biochemistry teaching assistant at Wesleyan because of the challenge of explaining concepts in various ways until my students understand them fully. I believe that complex scientific concepts can be understood by people with any level of scientific education, if those concepts are explained properly.

I have a degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, and have worked as a tutor at Wesleyan for Introductory Biology and Organic Chemistry I and II. I was the teaching assistant for Biochemistry, which involved facilitating weekly group problem sets, holding office hours where people could get homework help, and running exam review sessions. Before college, I was a Reading and Math tutor for the elementary and middle school level.

I took the SAT in 2015 and scored a 2400, and also took three subject tests: Biology (780), Literature (750) and Math II (720). I prepared myself for the Biology SAT Subject test and still have my notes and flashcards, so I know how to study smart and what kind of questions are likely to be on the test.

Explanations were very detailed and clear!

Ella was able to help me fully understand concepts that were not explained well in class. She was very thorough and the lecture didn’t feel rushed. She made sure I understood the processes we went over by employing visual aids and drawings which I thought were very helpful as a visual learner! Overall satisfied with my lesson!

Extremely knowledgeable

Ella is beyond amazing.I was so close to dropping my medical microbiology class before she started helping me.She is able to explain everything to me and break it down in a way that I can understand.I’m so glad I found her!

Prompt, knowledgeable and friendly.

It was a crisis before my final exam, short notice. Ella responded right away and explained a very complicated material, which other tutors did not feel comfortable dealing with. She was flexible and spent some so needed extra time. Super friendly, patient and knowledgeable! I wish I knew her earlier!

Impressive tutor!

I usually don't write reviews but for Ella I will. She helped me with my group work without even having my class notes. She is so knowledgeable and able to answer questions in a flash and that's so important to me as things are due in a very short time. I enjoyed working with Ella and will definitely have more lessons with her in the future. Anyone looking for a biochem tutor I'd totally recommend Ella to you. Thanks Ella!
