About Emilie

I have been tutoring for over 10 years. I have worked for tutoring companies and have done private tutoring. I also taught junior high for two years, which has given me some classroom experience. I am able to tutor one-on-one or with a small group. I am up-to-date on Common Core, and feel very comfortable providing guidance in these standards. My tutoring style is relational, creative, and purposeful. I help with homework to have a baseline, but I also like to do other activities with them since all individuals have varying learning styles. For example, vocabulary games, journaling, and creative writing. I am currently receiving my Master's in School Counseling and will be done by December 2015. I love to work with kids, especially when I am able to be privy to a child's "light bulb" moment.

I am very flexible and work diligently to provide several times that I am available. However, I do require someone over the age of 18 be on the premises. In addition, the availability of a quiet place that is completely visible while I am tutoring is a must.

I love going to the beach, reading, hanging out with friends, sports, and going to the movies. I love all superhero movies and all the movies based on books (Hunger Games, Divergent, etc.). I usually try to find some common interest with the student so that they are more comfortable with me.

I would love to come work for you!
Thank you,
Emilie

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with many elementary children in the past. I have also worked for two tutoring companies, and taught in a classroom for 2 years. My resume (available upon request) shows all of these experiences and qualifications.

English

I have been qualified in Grammar, English, handwriting, vocabulary, spelling, writing, and many other subjects! I have taught these subjects to many tutoring students and have used formal curriculum for junior high aged students.
Some of my students have spent three months with me just learning handwriting and acquiring stronger reading skills. I have a Master's degree which adds to my skills in writing, critical thinking, and grammar.

Handwriting

I have tutored in handwriting many times. I use handwriting in my everyday life, and have a firm grasp on the formation of letters (upper and lower case). I had my last student for over 6 months (he could not write any letters before) and he has beautiful handwriting.

Macintosh

I have used a Mac for several years. along with a PC. I own both, which helps when an individual wants to cross over to either a Mac or PC.

Microsoft Windows

I am currently a graduate student and use Windows everyday. I am familiar with all Windows, including Windows 8. I have taught many individuals how to use Windows, even those who had never touched a computer before.

Writing

I have a specialty in writing for all ages. I have experience with persuasive, expository, and narrative writing. I also teach descriptive and creative writing skills, along with mechanics and format. I also am familiar with some of the new common core requirements. This is all along with skills in spelling, vocabulary, handwriting, and grammar.

Very Positive!

Emilie worked with our high school student to improve his hand writing. We've only had one lesson but our son feels very positive about working with Emilie. ( This is high praise considering teenagers hate everything)
