Stephen T. from Pittsburgh, PA I learned so much from Ellen, going over every corner of the SAT. Talking through the reading, math, and writing sections thoroughly and explaining strategies. She gave me the confidence to absolutely crush the SAT. If you're in the area and looking for a tutor. Look no further.
Jan M. from Pittsburgh, PA Ellen helped my son prepare for the math section of the SAT exam. She helped him solve specific problems by patiently and thoroughly teaching the underlying method. In addition, and perhaps as importantly, Ellen offered practical and useful strategies and approaches to boost his overall confidence and understanding going into the exam. I highly recommend Ellen as a tutor.
Jill B. from Homestead, PA Ellen is a great tutor. She provided my son with strategies on how to take the SAT. She broke down the SAT section by section and taught him strategies on how to take the test. He is much more confident now. Instead of dreading taking the SAT, he is looking forward to applying the new strategies she taught him to the test.
Susan M. from Pittsburgh, PA Ellen has been tutoring my daughter in English and writing since early December. Her grades are improving from C's to a B on her report card, and most recently an A- on her latest in-class essay. Ellen is very dependable, accommodating, professional, and is always prepared. My daughter, who is very shy, feels very comfortable with her. I highly recommend her.
Anna O. from Pittsburgh, PA Ellen not only had to improve my math skills on what I already know, but also had to teach me many new things for the entrance exam I had to take. Although the amount of things I had to learn was overwhelming, Ellen was very patient with me throughout the time we were together, and made the work seem much more manageable. I'm very grateful to say that I now have passed the entrance exam and am now in the honors class. I can't thank Ellen enough!
