About Emma

I have a Master's in Teaching, and I taught 3rd grade in Spanish for four years at dual-immersion Spanish/English schools in San Francisco and Portland. I also student-taught Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science at a middle school in Salem, OR. I particularly enjoy working with students one-on-one because of the opportunity to build relationships with students and tailor instruction to their individual needs. I look forward to hearing from you! I have a Master's in Teaching, and I taught 3rd grade in Spanish for four years at dual-immersion Spanish/English schools in San Francisco and Portland.

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.

Ballet

I took ballet continuously from the age of 5 through my junior year of high school. I studied mainly at the Ballet West Conservatory in Salt Lake City and performed as a trainee with Ballet West in The Nutcracker, Coppelia, and Alice in Wonderland.

As a Dance Minor at Stanford University, I continued to take ballet, and I also took jazz, modern, hip hop, swing and salsa.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's in Teaching from Oregon State University (2006). I taught 3rd grade in Spanish at dual-immersion Spanish/English schools in Beaverton, OR (2006-2008), and then in San Francisco (2008-2010).

I currently hold a California Clear Multiple Subjects Credential (for teaching grades 3-8) and a California Clear Bilingual, Cross-cultural, Language and Academic Development Certificate (for teaching in Spanish).

ESL/ESOL

I currently hold a California Clear Bilingual, Cross-cultural, Language and Academic Development Certificate (for teaching in Spanish and/or teaching English Language Learners).

While a 3rd-grade teacher at Buena Vista Elementary from 2008-2010, I taught English to groups of students with a high percentage of English Language Learners. Some of the ESOL strategies I used included modeling, previewing vocabulary, using graphic organizers, relating content to students' cultural backgrounds and interests, using sentence frames, and forming cooperative learning groups.

Social Studies

I student-taught middle school Social Studies during the 2005-2006 academic year in Salem, Oregon, and I passed the Middle School Social Studies Praxis Test in June of 2006, which authorized me to teach Social Studies at the middle-school level. Additionally, I completed a Major in Psychology at Stanford University in 2002.

Yoga

I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training program through Yoga Works in San Francisco in July 2011. The program has been accredited by Yoga Alliance.

I have been practicing yoga since 2003. My style of instruction focuses on alignment and blends the methods of Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga.

I am available to teach group, private or corporate yoga classes.

Took her time — My very shy daughter was struggling with chemistry, Emma helped her raise her C grade to an A. Emma's gentle, precise and supportive teaching style gave my daughter the foundation so she would understand the curriculum plus the added confidence to raise her grade. She now feels confident enough to end her tutoring sessions with Emma after a month 1/2 and fly solo. I would recommend anyone to Emma ...
