About Emily

My name is Emily, and I would love to tutor you or your child. I graduated with a dual degree in anthropology and archaeology from Washington University. I received my masters in the social sciences from the University of Chicago, and my masters in teaching (secondary education) from National Louis.

I left teaching to stay at home with my twin girls, now 6.5 years old, and have been tutoring ever since. I love to teach and am a life-long learner. My areas of expertise include Hebrew, particularly B'nai Mitzvah practice, the social sciences, and English. Most of my current students study English (writing and reading) and history with me. I have experience with students in junior high and high school, as well as college, medical school, and law school. I've successfully helped a number of students get into top colleges and graduate schools by assisting with personal statements and application essays.

In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, and I believe that my ability to create a quick rapport contributes to the success of my students. My specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student.

I look forward to hearing from you!
