Ellen has already helped me enormously by reframing the challenges I face in a way that encourages me to step up to the plate. She is a visionary instructor who is highly perceptive of her students. I encourage you to have a conversation with her and see for yourself.

A lot of the tutors on here want you to have your paper complete and then they will only suggest edits. Ellen help me form a solid thesis that I was able to build everything off of. She clarified my ideas for me and helped organize them on paper. I would highly recommend her as she is very patient and professional. The topic also went in a very interesting direction which was fun.

Ellen is such a great tutor on thinking and writing. We were together for an essay about ontology. It was such a difficult topic for me, especially for an international student. However, we were having a great conversation.

Me and my sister had couple lessons with Ellen, she is highly professional and motivating. We are definitely going to continue having lessons on weekly basis.
Just to let everyone know she is helping us with english as a second language, so I highly recommend her for international students that need help for SAT or just for improving theirs writing and expanding theirs vocabulary.
And finally Ellen is amazing as a person, she is positive and very nice. I would recommend her to everyone that need any help with English.

Ellen was a terrific help in getting the first paper of the semester more on point and logical and mechanically clean. She responded right away and was very accommodating on short notice with her time. Good communicator and nice even with basics. Would definitely contact again.
