About Emily

Hi, my name is Emily and I am passionate about teaching. Too many students can be put off from subjects they would otherwise love or just need to pass by teachers and tutors who don't have the time or patience to understand and help. When that happens it does not only affect a student's grade but also their confidence and ambition. I have a lot of experience working with students of different strengths to help them become self sufficient, understand their material and even begin to love it. I love to use interactive techniques that will stimulate as many senses as possible until my students understand the concepts. We will draw it, act it out, build models, etc. Essentially we will do whatever it takes. The best part is that this works with just about any subject.

I have a journalism degree and love the English language. I have a lot of experience writing and reading. I love classic and modern literature as well as analyzing deeper themes and meanings within a story's context. I love to get other people into this also to analyze and tap into those critical thinking skills. Doing this allows you to learn about different cultures or societies past and present and what their values were. These are vital skills for college English!

I also love science, especially biology! The study of life! I work part-time at Sea World and have a background in general and marine biology. Science is amazing because it teaches us about the world around us and our place in it. The sciences can be a bit of a challenge if you don't absolutely love them or if memorization does not come quite as easily to you. I will tell you this, if I can't make you love biology, I will at least make it possible for you to pass with logical and fun ways to memorize and master biological concepts.

Beyond that I can also help with other subjects like lower level math, beginning chemistry, art history and even public speaking and theater. I have a lot of experience with K-12 but I am comfortable with older students, too!

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.
