Experienced test preparation tutor and PhD biologist: Full SAT preparation and Biology AP Biology

About the lesson

I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and
a PhD in Biology/Neurosciences from the University of California, San Diego. I have extensive experience tutoring high school students for full SAT preparation, as well as biology, algebra, and reading and study skills. I like to use on-line educational tools, and believe that good diagrams are extremely helpful for studying the sciences.
I also specialize in encouragement and have a very positive attitude about learning.

About Ellen

I have taught 20-25 students for SAT preparation and several others in biology. I started tutoring in the Boston area in 2003, and did so mainly from 2008-2010.
I have also taught students and research assistants hands on laboratory skills in my research career. I have mainly taught students in 7th-12th grades.
Currently, I am considering transitioning to a full time teaching career. I have helped students get better test scores and helped increase their overall confidence.
