Hi, I'm Emily.
I completed my Associates of Arts degree at Rock Valley College last summer and have been searching for an opportunity to become a tutor because I enjoy teaching. I have taken a wide variety of classes and have a working knowledge of multiple subjects. Although I have no formal (paid) experience tutoring, I have always been the person my classmates would turn to if they needed help with their schoolwork.
I can provide tutoring in a variety of subjects, but I specialize in English (elementary-college). I can tutor in all areas of English (grammar, literature, reading, vocabulary, and writing) and I have a strong desire to tutor in writing. Writing has always come naturally to me and I would love to help others learn how to improve their writing skills. I can provide assistance with proofreading/editing as well.
My Approach to Tutoring:
I am a dedicated and enthusiastic problem-solver, so I love helping people. I see each person as a unique puzzle and I find great satisfaction in figuring out why someone is struggling to understand something and then finding ways to adapt the information according to each individual's specific learning style.
I am friendly and patient and try my best to make learning fun and enjoyable. My ultimate goal is to teach students how to learn so that, eventually, they will no longer need tutoring.
