Hi, I'm Emily. I'm one of Wyzant's most popular SAT/ACT English tutors. If you're looking for a direct, highly effective teacher to help you revolutionize your testing approach and get results, you've come to the right place.

2020-2021 Student Achievement Highlights: S.F (ACT): 36 Reading, 36 English; L.P (SAT): 100 point increase in English; E.H. (SAT): 60 point increase in English after a 1 hour session; R.F. (ACT): 10 point increase from 23 to 33; K.V. (SAT): 70 point increase in two weeks; H.A. (SAT): 650 to 780 in English.

As a full time SAT/ACT Verbal tutor, I offer a rare level of expertise that only comes with being a specialist. My experience gives me the ability to quickly assess your strengths and weaknesses and provide you with an action plan in the first session.

Many SAT/ACT tutors do not know how to drastically change the way you work on the test, but I do. This is not about becoming smarter or more knowledgeable; it is about mastering your test taking approach.

My specialty is in helping students get through the LAST 100 points to a 99th% score.

Aspiring perfect scorers- I am confident that I can help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and make an action plan to reach your goal. Doing well on the SAT and ACT is about learning the steps that consistently lead to right answer choices and being fluent in the language of the tests. These tests are nuanced, picky, and highly detail oriented, but you can learn to match the test’s precision. Let's do it!

About me- I am a SAT/ACT English perfect scorer, but I didn't get there because I was born highly gifted at these tests. I taught myself strategies to always get every question right, which makes me a great person to teach you how to do the same.

I offer a free 15 minute consultation for interested students/ parents. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

The Best English SAT Tutor!!

Emily is a wonderful tutor. When I first went to her I was already a high-level student and did not know how to improve much more from the level I was at. However, when working with Emily not only was she was able to teach me specific strategies and easily crackdown on problems I was struggling with, but she also did it very quickly. With her help, I saw myself have a more reliable and consistent strategy when came to test-taking. I saw myself being warier of things that I was to do and not do which was a tremendous improvement from what I was doing before: using my gut and instincts to find some of the harder answers. Emily is an awesome tutor and is extremely knowledgeable, I would highly recommend her to those who need the extra little bump of help or those just starting out!

Very knowledgeable and helpful!!

Emily was an amazing tutor! She taught me a lot of helpful strategies for the Reading and Writing Sections of the SAT. Also, she always made sure I fully understood the questions and the different ways of answering them. Furthermore, it was easy to communicate with Emily about the problems I was having on the SAT. She would immediately know the specific strategies to go about those problems. Emily also has an awesome personality and I love the analogies she comes up with to explain concepts. Overall, she was able to significantly increase my Reading/Writing score!!! Highly recommend!!

Insightful and approachable teacher!

Emily gave me many useful tips on how to attack the reading and writing portions of the SAT. I used to struggle a lot when I was down to two answer choices or confused by the meaning of a phrase. She taught me how to dissect question types and provided multiple techniques for how to approach each one. She is also straight to the point and mindful of your time. Emily is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her for anyone trying to get a better english score on their SAT!

Know exact areas to work on and makes use of time wisely

Emily can understand the student and provide them feedback on what areas they need to focus on and improve the timing and chances for getting better. My daughter feel confident after having session with emily.

Very knowledgeable and great tutor!

Emily helped my son so much within such a short period of time. My child always got a middle score for English, but Emily helped him improve a lot. Without her help, my child would have never gotten to where they are now. I’m so grateful for Emily

chris J, 5 lessons with Emily

Good start

Started with a consultation session, she was pretty clear and easy to understand. In the first lesson, she walked through the questions the student missed in the reading section, reviewing how to go about answering the questions in a way that made the most sense.

Knowledgeable and SAT Skill

Emily did an excellent job. She helped to improve my son's ability in SAT reading and writing skill quickly. I can differentiate the change and analysis after couple of session. I always recommend to her if anyone interest.

Learned a Much Better Mindset for SAT Reading

I already had a high score before tutoring, but wanted to see if I could get closer to a perfect score. Emily was a fantastic tutor and helped me score 30 points higher on the reading and writing sections, cutting the amount that I got wrong in half. She shared great resources to help me on the test and gave me good tips for every single question type. Most importantly, she helped me change my mindset going into the test, increasing my confidence that I would be able to answer each question methodically, rather than hope that the test and I were on the same page.

Mindy, 9 lessons with Emily

My daughter needed help in English for the ACT

My daughter needed some help in English for the ACT, there was a few topics that she was difficult for her to figure out on her own. She took a practice test before they meet and sent Emily the results. They worked on her what she had trouble with, she really enjoyed discussing the nuance of English grammar. She just got her scores back and she received a 35 composite with a 36 in English!
