Bio

Ellen is a NoVA native who attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, and is a recent graduate of the College of William & Mary, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience with a minor in Computational Biology. She was originally on the pre-medical track; however, after taking more math courses for fun (yes, you read that correctly), she realized that she had an interest in numbers that was too strong to ignore. To solve this conundrum, she settled on the happy medium of Biomedical Engineering, and is currently preparing to undertake her Master’s degree at Johns Hopkins in this field.

For the past several years, Ellen has been tutoring students in various academic subjects in math and science, as well as standardized test preparation. When she is not tutoring or studying, you can find Ellen reading, hitting the gym, or scouring the area for the latest and greatest restaurants and bubble tea shops.

 

Philosophy

I strive to help students find their most effective studying style and, in turn, their confidence. You ARE a math person!
