Elinor taught English to my daughter. She introduced her to different forms of writing. She made writing fun! She is very knowledgeable in her subject. A great teacher! I highly recommend her!

Elinor was very insightful, helpful and patient! I hope to continue using her as I begin college in the Fall as well. She seemed to grasp the assignment and was very knowledgeable of the book.

Elinor has been teaching English writing for my 5th child for 5 months. She was able to get the attention, eliminate the reluctance of writing and kept the lessons very pleasant and effective. She is flexible and willing to accommodate my feedback to make the learning experience a great one. Highly recommend her.

As to be a international student she helped me a lot on my English, such as how to use the correct grammar, how to write a good article. Every times when I finished the assignment, she will teach me how to do it better. She is a good teacher.

My daughter enjoyed the lesson and I'm happy that we will be meeting on a regular basis. We look forward to seeing her grow in her writing. Elinor got my daughter to think about how she approaches her writing audience and introduced interesting online tools.

Elinor was terrific at not only guiding my daughter with an application essay, but she also has a great ability to give constructive criticism and encouraging compliments at the same time.

- Lisa W. from Carlsbad, CA
Elinor has been great at working with my child in reading and grammar. We have seen such an improvement since she began the tutoring sessions that it has been well worth the investment. Elinor is very flexible when it comes to scheduling and if we need to make an adjustment along the way, she is quick to respond and work with us to ensure we don't miss a session.
- Gary E. from Booneville, KY
Elinor is a wonderful tutor. My sons grade was dropping in 8th grade English due to his writing. Elinor jumped in and saved the day! Elinor helped my son raise his grade from a a B- to a B+ in just one trimester! We hope to continue to use Elinor through High School. Elinor is also very easy to reach by email and was always on time for the tutoring sessions. Thank you Elinor!
- Cheirse K. from Carlsbad, CA
Elinor has been integral in our son's mastery of math. Her patience, kindness, and knowledge encouraged such a depth of learning for him that he went from anxious and discouraged due to falling behind to encouraged and confident upon forging ahead. We highly recommend Elinor for any struggling math student, especially those who may need a little positive push in the right direction.
- Courtne C. from Carlsbad, CA
Elinor has helped my son to love reading and improved in writing just in a few months! My son looks forward to his tutoring.
- Maria A. from San Marcos, CA
Elinor is just what each child needs to excel every week with assignments and accountability for life skills. Both my children enjoy their time with her
- Teresa R. from Oceanside, CA
Elinor is working with my daughter on organizing, researching and writing research papers. My daughter enjoys working with Elinor's calm and patient personality
- Carmen G. from Oceanside, CA
Elinor is brilliant, thoughtful and encouraging, all the while allowing the student to develop his/her skills. She's masterful at imparting knowledge and my husband and I are excited about seeing the final product of this important assignment Elinor has been an integral part of. The intangible value of working with Elinor is we have not seen our son this excited about writing ever in his life. I'm guessing there are only a handful of teachers on the planet who can engage a student as completely as Elinor. Sweet, Elinor, we hope you know how truly gifted and amazing you are.
- Gina P. from Rancho Santa Fe, CA
Elinor is a very patient, but stern tutor. She is the perfect tutor for my son. My son is ADHD and a bit difficult at times. She makes learning fun for him. I love to hear him laughing and having a good time as he is learning. I am very fortunate that we found Elinor. We have tried many others and she is awesome! Would highly recommend her!!
- Jo N. from San Marcos, CA
Elinor is always on time on the days she says she will be here, that is very much appreciated since we have had trouble with other tutors following through in the past. She is also very patient, stays on task, and is extremely knowledgeable. She is always in a great mood which helped my son warm up to her. She helped to bring out my son's passion for writing and he is enthusiastic about her visits. I would definitely recommend Elinor as a tutor.
