Hi, I'm Ellie! I graduated from the University of Denver in 2018 with a BA in Physics and a BA in Gender and Women's Studies with honors distinction. I have many years of experience in tutoring folks of all ages and all subject materials, but my specialties include mathematics (through calculus: differentials, integrals, and multi-variable), science, writing, and test preparation for middle and high schoolers. Until I was a senior in high school, I struggled greatly in math. I was put in ... [more]

Algebra 1

In June of 2018, I graduated with a BA in Physics and a minor in Mathematics, including demonstrating proficiency in Algebra 1. However, until I was a senior in high school, I struggled greatly in math. I was put in the "lower achieving" mathematics classes since elementary school, and it profoundly affected the way I viewed my confidence and performance in math. I know how it feels to struggle and fall behind at an important subject in school, particularly how nerve-wracking it can be! Because I spent so many years in school struggling as I did, I am better equipped to help others who are also struggling achieve their goals.
