University of Michigan
Hello! My name is Ellery, and I’m currently a PhD student in History at University College London, where I’m studying Victorian political movements. I’m originally from Bethesda, Maryland, just outside D.C., and did my undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, where I graduated in three years, and wrote a column for the university newspaper. I also hold an MA in history from University College London. I’ve had experience tutoring students for standardized tests since 2013. In my spare time, I like exploring London, baking banana bread, and reading thriller novels.
You’ve come to the right place. SAT/ACT tests are unique beasts, but just like any other, they too can be tamed. My biggest strength is flexibility. Everybody learns differently, so instead of teaching a rigid set of rules to problem solving, I tailor my approach to the student. I’m looking forward to meeting new students and helping them learn how to ace this test the way they know best.
As a Bay Area native who toured Eastern Europe with the San Jose Youth Symphony, achieved salutatorian rank in his high school, and held regional records in swimming, Larry learned how to bend time from a very young age. Despite acing his math exams, he elected to graduate from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and has worked in marketing analytics ever since, using the left half of his brain to understand the right half. When he isn’t busy being chased around by his cats, Larry enjoys building computers and taking his two-seater up in the hills.
