About Emily


Bio

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.

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.

In my capacity as Writing Center director (California State University, East Bay, 2002-2007; University of Hawai'i, West Oahu, 2008-2012; Ashford University, 2013-2015) I have trained tutors to assist with resume creation and revision. In addition, I have worked with numerous private clients to improve their resumes and cover letters. Finally, as a college instructor teaching Technical Writing (National University, 2013), resume writing is part of the curriculum I teach.
