Ellen Marie G.
Ms. Ellen is an honest teacher. She is not afraid to tell me on areas of grammar/writing where I really need to work on improving. She is detailed in her explanation of areas I do not understand and if she doesn't know Ms. Ellen is not afraid to admit that she is not sure of the answer and that she will look into my questions and will get back to me. When she points out places where she thinks I can improve, she also gives me lengthy examples so I can see/understand better what she means which makes it easier to make changes in my writing.

It seems like grammar is all about labeling parts of speech/language and learning a lot of weird new terms like "clause" that mean nothing to you. It's like a science of language--remember drawing lines to show the thorax of an insect or the pistil of a flower? That's what grammar is like for most people.

Renee is very friendly and professional. I want a tutor for my son, so he can improve his writing portion of the SAT. He had 4 x 2 hours lessons with Renee. She reviewed grammars, and explained the rules while my son worked on the practice questions. She discussed strategy in writing the assay and gave him some tips in taking the SAT. I will definitely recommend Renee. She is patient, personal and helpful.
