After graduating from Chicago’s top public magnet high school, Whitney Young, as a National Merit Finalist and with perfect scores in seven Advanced Placement courses, she attended Oberlin College on the prestigious John F. Oberlin Scholarship. She received her initial training as a tutor after being selected to work in the Writing Associates Program at Oberlin, where she tutored college students of all years and majors and served as Teaching Assistant for the First-Year Seminar Program. It was here that she discovered her love for and commitment to one-on-one education, which allows her to shape the learning experience precisely to her students’ needs. Eleanor has been tutoring in some capacity ever since.
