Since my own learning process has often been convoluted, I find I have a strong ability to understand not only what someone understands but how they understand. This helps me take the appropriate tac when tutoring. Throughout my life, I have taken great comfort and found refuge in education and learning. I am not a fast learner. I started to read late in life and schoolwork never came easily to me. Despite that, and with many individualized learning sessions and hard work, I was able to attend a Ivy League university and graduate magna cum laude. My curiosity led me from biology to documentary filmmaking, where I continue to explore the world and disseminate knowledge.

My expertise include history, writing, literature, language, and early reading and writing skills.

VERY SMART — Emilia understood exactly where my son was struggling even before meeting her and she hit it right on the nail and was right. My son was using his laptop to type and she told him to write in a note pad for each subject. This started this week and he captured information he was missing trying to keep up with typing. EXCELLENT SUGGESTION EMELIA!!!! ...
