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

**October 2019 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 English coach, 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 weakness 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.

If you're looking for a tutor to teach you the "rules of the game" and to help you master both the test and your performance on it, you've come the right place.

With easy to understand lessons and tons of helpful exercises, you will learn exactly what to expect and how to handle it. My classes operate on two levels: teaching you how to approach each of the question types/ concepts AND teaching you how to think like the test thinks.

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

How my classes work- During our first class together, we will take an in depth look at your most recent practice test and analyze all of your errors. I am interested in much more than your official score report provides. We need to figure out WHY you are getting questions wrong and WHAT you can do about it. After figuring out both the question types/ concepts you struggle with and what kinds of preventable errors you’re making, we will begin our study phase. During this phase we will cover every relevant lesson from how to use commas to how to tackle Big Picture questions. Then, once we’ve laid the foundation, we will begin the phase of eliminating careless errors. We do this by setting concrete skill goals-ie, I’m going to read every word of every answer-and drilling that skill until you are applying it 100% of the time. Then, we add the next skill, and the next, and the next. Eventually, you will not only learn exactly what to do for each type of question, but you will be able to execute the strategies without making any errors.

Aspiring perfect scorers-I am confident that I can help you understand your strengths and weakness 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 detailed oriented, but you can learn to match the tests’ precision. Let's do it!

Great in school but not happy with your test score- So many students do well in school but struggle to get a score that they feel reflects their skill level. That's because these tests are not like what you do in class. In fact, they test a totally different skillset! What that means is that you have to learn how the test works, drill the specific skills that lead to a great score, and viola!-you're there. Once students are able to eliminate their careless errors and understand how the test is written, they almost always exceed their goals.

Only need help with one thing (like grammar rules)- If you already know exactly what you need help with, that’s awesome. I do targeted lessons for students who are more self-directed and just want help with a few things. I have specific lessons for every concept/ challenge on the test. We can probably cover your issues in just a few sessions.

About me- I am a SAT/ACT English perfect scorer, but I didn’t get there because I was born super 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'm a high energy, funny, and creative person. Having a good time while learning is central to my teaching philosophy. Since graduating from a writing-intensive Philosophy program, I've spent the last six years pursuing my passion for teaching. I have worked as a literacy specialist, writing coach, teacher in public and private schools, and as a multi-subject, private tutor.

In the last few years I've honed in on my speciality as an ACT/ SAT English tutor because I love how complicated and nuanced the tests are.

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.

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.

Yang, 4 lessons with Emily

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.

PRASANTA, 6 lessons with Emily

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.

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!

Andrea, 1 lesson with Emily

Excellent and pragmatic teacher

Emily helped understand what she could help in and what I could do on my own. Also was very flexible in her approaches to tutoring.

Sundu, 2 lessons with Emily

Knowledgeable and effective tutor!

Emily provided me with all the tools I needed to ace the ACT English and Reading sections. She very obviously knows the test inside and out and gives very helpful test-taking tips and strategies. She was always on-target and got straight to the point with her explanations and advice. She's also really nice and gave me the self-confidence I needed in my abilities. Thanks to Emily's help, I got a 36 on the English section and a 35 on the Reading section. Any student would be lucky to have her as a tutor! I highly recommend her!

Gilda, 2 lessons with Emily

AMAZING!!

My daughter thinks Emily is the right tutor to get her into the 700 range of the SAT English section. She has worked with other tutors, mostly in person, none had the knowledge of the SAT that Emily has.

James, 9 lessons with Emily

Knowledgeable, patient, super committed

Although I only met with Emily a few times for SAT Test prep, she is always ready to answer all my question in a way that helps me learn from my misses. She is also very committed to her job - she was able to help me with my questions even when she is on vacation. Thank you so much Emily! :)

5 stars!! Understanding and will work with you

Emily is such a great tutor. I had a 620 score on Reading & Writing and Language, and her tutoring boosted me 100 points to a 720. She taught me so many skills for the English section of the SAT in the 3 months that I worked with her that I never would have known. I did online tutoring and it was no problem at all. One day I experienced connectivity issues, but that was it. Emily is an understanding tutor and will work with you and make sure you understand the necessary concepts. She is very knowledgeable and exceptional at what she does!
