About Emma

I'm a recent graduate with a passion for teaching and tutoring, with hopes to attend graduate school for my PhD in English so I can teach at a collegiate level. I spent my college years learning working with students one-on-one in the Writing Center, tutoring them to be stronger writers in every subject. I completed a semester of for-credit training prior to my employment, ensuring that I was equipped to work with all students to the best of my ability. I also worked as Station Manager at my college radio station, where I worked to train new staff. I loved watching as my students and staff would gain confidence enough to work more and more independently, taking charge of their academic and radio careers. My biggest joy is when I am no longer needed!

On paper, I graduated cum laude in English after countless classes in literature, writing, and theory. In reality, I achieved this by seizing opportunities outside of the classroom, presenting at conferences and symposiums, leading student writing groups, and spending time in critical discussion with my professors. The subjects I tutor in are not just my strong suits, they are my life's passions!

I'd love to work with you to better your skills and help you more wholly engage with the world, both academic and otherwise. Contact me to set up hours that best fit your schedule.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
