Hi! My name is Ellen and I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Dance. Though dance is my passion, I have always loved academics of all sorts and am wholeheartedly a math geek. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, and completed three International Baccalaureate certificates in high school, in the fields of Math, English and History. I am a member of the National Honors Society and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, an...
Ellen worked with my daughter helping her prepare for her SATs. She was reliable, easy to communicate with, and my daughter feels that her lessons were useful and insightful. She feels more confident about her test-taking skills. Thanks, Ellen!

I had all the areas I needed help with already outlined! She stayed organized and went in order with the areas I needed extra review for! She also gave adequate examples and we even had time in the end to do an example essay. Thank you, Ellen.

Ellen was great--she listened to my concerns and anxieties regarding the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE and provided some very helpful strategies and advice.

My nephew is obtaining lessons from Ellen and he seems to enjoy it. Ellen reviews the subject and explains the details. This is one of our first lessons but he seems to be getting the hang of things and I'm glad we selected Ellen for a tutor. I can't wait to see how the lessons progress. Thanks Ellen.

My daughter enjoys working with Ellen. She is teaching her how to analysis questions and develop methods for solving math problems.
- Talbert W. from New Kensington, 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!

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.

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.

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.
- Jan M. 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.
