She taught my daughter and nephew on different subjects (reading, writing) and at different levels (middle school, high school), with plans tailored to their individual needs, and improved their performances significantly.
- Diana L. from Henderson, NV
She was able to hone in on the writing gaps in the first lesson itself. She was very patient, positive and made some great suggestions. We have only had one lesson so far but I can see the value already.

Elinor has been tutoring our freshmen son for about two months now. She does a great job explaining why he should make changes and not just telling to make the changes. He is really starting to self-edit and become more aware of the writing process.

My 14 year old son is a, "challenged learner". He loves to read but absolutely does NOT enjoy writing. Ms. Elinor assisted him in annotating, outlining and creating his English essay. Ms. Elinor was able to hold his attention, he had an excellent time with her and he looks forward to working with her again.

Elinor tutored our daughter all summer for her upcoming 8th grade school year. She did a fantastic job! My daughter loved Elinor and she made ELA fun! Elinor instilled in our daughter a love of literature (for the first time) and now our daughter has a new, positive feeling about reading! She worked with her on increasing her vocabulary, grammar skills, and essay writing. Highly recommend Elinor!
