About Emily

I’ve been a writing professor and tutor for more than 20 years, with one main goal in mind: guiding my students in developing the skills and confidence they need to succeed in their writing/studies.

My specialty is working with writers at all levels, from elementary through high school, from undergraduates, to graduate students, and including anyone, in general, who needs help practicing and mastering their writing skills.

The areas I provide expertise with include: Writing assignments across the curriculum; successful study habits; preparation for standardized tests (SAT, GRE, TOEFL); grammar; research and citation skills; college entrance essays; Master's and Doctoral thesis coaching; English as a Second Language.

My Ph.D. is in English and Education (from University of Michigan) with a focus in teaching writing and literacy. I also hold a Master’s in Journalism from University of Colorado, and a Bachelor’s in Humanities from Johns Hopkins.

My students would tell you that I am a helpful and clear communicator, I have a good sense of humor, and I make learning fun! I am available to meet in-person or online.

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.

ACT English

With my coaching, students improve their ACT scores and learn about the rigors of college work compared to high school.

English

I work with students at all levels of English proficiency. I help younger students improve and build on their writing skills, and I coach high school students through the college entrance process. My career has been devoted to guide college students, as well as adults who seek to improve their performance in the workforce.

ESL/ESOL

I've taught ESL and tutored English Language Learners at all levels. I enjoy working with students from different cultures and helping them master their English skills, especially so they can succeed in American schools and universities.

Grammar

As a college English professor, I've taught grammar skills to hundreds of students. I can help you identify your errors, understand rules of grammar, and provide you with tools so that eventually you can correct your own mistakes.

Proofreading

I am a skilled proofreader who can quickly and efficiently correct your writing.

Reading

Becoming a competent reader is as important as being a strong writer! I teach students reading strategies (such as pre-reading, skimming, and review techniques) that improve their comprehension, whatever their grade level.

TOEFL

I have taught and prepared many English language learners to do well on the TOEFL exam. Because I've also taught non-native English speakers at the high school and college level, I understand their language challenges and can provide strategies for success after the exam as well.
