About Emily

Hello! I'm Emily. I'm new to using WyzAnt, but not to tutoring! I focus primarily on test prep for SAT, SAT 2 subjects tests, GRE, LSAT, ACT, TOEFL, IELTS, and GMAT. I work with students to define their goals and desired scores, so that we can work together to create a study schedule that will help them reach those goals. I am also able to help students with college application essays, statements of purpose and so on. I received a 2390 on the SAT, and 170/165/5.5 on the GRE. I also consistently score in the 99th percentile on practice tests for GMAT, LSAT and ACT!
I'm originally from San Diego, California. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wesleyan University, where I majored in History and Russian Studies, minored in Creative Writing, and received high honors in History and Russian studies for my undergraduate thesis. I've been living in Moscow, Russia, where I worked as an English teacher for students ages 9 to 15, and as a private tutor specializing in test prep (Including the new SAT, TOEFL, IELTS and more). Now that I've returned to the U.S., I'm glad to be continuing this work here.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

IELTS

For the last year, I have been living in Moscow, Russia, where I worked for a private tutoring company as a test prep tutor, including for IELTS. I also worked as an EFL teacher at a school in Moscow, where several of my older students were preparing for IELTS. My tutoring methods for this exam include defining goals and needs for individual students, and working with students to create personalized study schedules so that they can reach their desired scores. I also work on teaching my students strategies for each section of IELTS through practice exams and specialized tasks designed to improve IELTS skills.
