Thanks, Brookie. I so enjoy working with Victoria!
Mary Ellen was an excellent tutor for both my daughter and son. Her ability to connect and adjust her teaching style to their differing personalities was amazing. When she first started working with them, it was mostly strengthening their grammar and writing strategies. She was especially helpful with the literature my daughter had to read for her AP lit class. Having her help them prep for the ACT as well as college essays was the best decision I made!Feb 22, 2018
Mary Ellen McWhirter is an excellent tutor who helped both of my boys with English and Literature throughout high school. My boys loved working with Mary Ellen and I know for a fact that she was instrumental in helping both boys improve their writing so much so that they both received multiple Ivy League acceptances.Feb 22, 2018
Ms. McWhirter is a great English teacher. Both my kids, who landed spots for their top picked college, are benefit greatly from her helps.Sep 13, 2012
Mary Ellen is one of the best English and writing tutors out there. She has been working with both of my sons, now ages 14 and 17, for several years, helping them develop their writing and literary analysis skills. My older son had problems organizing his thoughts and expressing his ideas clearly and succinctly, and Mary Ellen was instrumental in helping him develop these writing skills. She is adept at literary analysis, an area my younger son needed support in, and provided the extra help he needed to fully comprehend the difficult novels his class was reading. As importantly, Mary Ellen has an amazing ability to relate to her students and both my boys looked forward to working with her.Feb 27, 2018
