Simon Studies Educational Services, LLC (Simon Studies) is a tutoring/educational service company founded in 2010 by Sherman B. Ellegood Jr. Mr. Ellegood obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the Morgan State University, but quickly found his passion in education after a brief career in the business arena. After spending years as a teacher in Prince Georges County Public School system, Mr. Ellegood realized that he wanted to give more to his community. He founded Simon Studies to satisfy his desire to help students excel inside and outside the classroom.

Simon Studies was founded on the belief that every child has the ability to learn.

Over the years, Simon Studies has helped hundreds of students improve their study habits, reading comprehension ability, and math conceptual knowledge.  As a result, company staff have observed students not only see a boost in their self-esteem but also in their self-confidence.
