About Emily

I have taught for 2 years in the Hartford School District in grades 4 and 6. Previously I taught third grade, interned in grades 3-5, and homeschooled a first, second, and fourth grade student. Teaching has always been something I loved because it's so exciting helping someone get to that "light bulb" moment! I have worked in camps and tutored all ages through high school. Reading and science are particular passions of mine. I try to reach students through both inquiry methods, where students discover knowledge for themselves, and through teaching skills, where I break a complicated problem down into skills and strategies that the student can apply to future problems.

I am a graduate of Yale University so I bring a love of learning to all that I do. My goal is to help your student succeed in both current endeavors and future education.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught grades 4 and 6 for the past two years in the Hartford Public School District. I am certified in Connecticut to teach K-6.

Praxis

I can tutor for elementary Praxis, the Reading Foundation Skills, Principles of Learning and Teaching, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have passed all exams with very high scores. I have supported fellow teachers through practice and studying for the tests. I also am familiar with the content and type of questions that will be asked as well as a variety of resources for studying for them.

Reading

I am a certified K-6 and ESL teacher with extensive strategies for teaching literacy to individualized needs.

Study Skills

I hold a masters in Elementary Education, which included classes in child psychology and development. I think it is critical to teach study skills so I keep updated on the most recent strategies and research through professional development.

Fantastic!

We've had several 6th grade math lessons with Emily now. Our girls really like her and are feeling more confident with their math skills. Emily is great with the girls, patient, outgoing, and knows her stuff. I highly recommend Emily and look forward to the girls' continued progress.
