I am a 52 year old man. I have a bachelor of science degree in biology/pre-med but I began college as a physics major so I have considerable background in most of the physical sciences and mathematics.

I began teaching in Kentucky in 1990 and continued to do so at various levels (K-12) until 2007. The majority of my teaching experience is with high school mathematics from pre-algebra to calculus, but I have also taught physics and chemistry as an adjunct professor at the college leve...

Ellis R. was really helpful and got me prepared for my ACT. I plan to continue to work with him in the future.
- Aleah G. from Easley, SC
Ellis was quick in responding, on time, met us in the library at Furman, did everything he said he would do. My teen liked him and said he helped her better understand chemistry.

I reached out to Ellis late one evening and he messaged me back within minutes. He was able to tutor my daughter the next day. She understood by the end of the hour. Would definitely use again.

Ellis has stepped up and helped out when in a bind with a Probability & Statistics class on a short notice. He is extremely smart and patient and can explain things to people on all levels. If you need help, there is nobody better than Ellis!
- Caroline B. from Greer, SC
Ellis is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. He has really helped my Son understand his Algebra 2 better. We will definitely be scheduling more sessions.
- Nicole W. from Simpsonville, SC
Ellis was on time and ready to provide services. Bravo. Our meeting place was very easy for us to access. My Daughter was much more confident about her Algeba2 final.
- Jamie B. from Simpsonville, SC
Great tutor! He knows a variety of subject matter and was able to help across the board with various subjects- Physics, AP calculus and Algebra 2. He was able to explain things in a different way
- Tami B. from Greenville, SC
Helped me better understand limits in calculus. I would recommend Ellis to a friend or anyone who is struggling to understand limits. We were able to review the problems that I missed on my test and clear up any confusion.
- Nathan K. from Greenville, SC
I will be returning for more sessions over the span of my college education. One session gave me the confidence I needed to attach tough calculus problems a second time. What I learned over the session empowered me to apply new knowledge and make my way through assignments independently. I'm so thrilled to have found such a wonderful tutor!
- Amanda B. from Duncan, SC
Ellis taught me different methods for studying the quantittative portion of the GRE. I'm not very good in math but he made it seem so easy! Can't wait for the second session.
- Tiffani H. from Spartanburg, SC
Ellis has helped me during the semester with organic chemistry. He helped me go over details that maybe I had missed before but was important throughout the whole class. I feel I had a greater understanding of organic chemistry even though it is a hard class after tutoring with Ellis. Great tutor and would recommend!!!
- Mary B T. from Simpsonville, SC
It was so good to see my daughter feel more confident after one session. Looking forward to more sessions . Awesome tutor! Thank you so much for today!

Met for College Algebra review- Ellis was helpful and clear. He met with me on short notice and was understanding when I arrived a bit late due to logistics. Would recommend????
- Kimberly M. from Taylors, SC
To begin, he set up the first session in a location that is absolutely perfect for tutoring. A private study room with a white board in a library. I started by letting him know what I don't know and how I learn. He took it from there and caught me up on the core concepts and then additional things I was having trouble understanding. It was all rooted in how I learn. The most basic calculus concepts clicked so easily. 10/10 will do again.
- Anna S. from Anderson, SC
Ellis reviewed sine, cosine, and tangent of a right angle and how to find a missing angle and the side of a right triangle. Intro to trigonometry at first I didnt know what I was doing. I was so confused. Ellis thought me the basic concepts I needed to understand it. He explained it step by step so I was able to understand.
- Leslie P. from Greenville, SC
Ellis helped me understand the statistics material I needed to review. His instruction was very organized. He made the material make sense. I am scheduling another session with him.
- Joan G. from Greenville, SC

- Eugenia G. from Greenville, SC
My son was struggling in Chemistry. He has had a couple tutoring sessions with Mr Ellis. Mr Ellis is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He goes at a pace to ensure my son knows and understand the material that he is currently studying in his class. His grades are improving and so is his confidence. Thanks Mr Ellis
