More About Me
Hi, my name is Elle Defensor, and I’m so excited to join the My Private Professor team! I’ve been tutoring writing and math for over four years, and I can’t wait to continue tutoring with My Private Professor so I can meet, help, and connect with unique students just like yourself! I’m a first-year studying sustainable engineering and writing at UC Davis. When I’m not tutoring or studying for myself, I love spending the day on-campus with friends, outdoors at the beach, playing music in a duet, and traveling the world.
Looking forward to connecting with you soon!
