About Emi

I recently graduated Ohio Wesleyan University with a degree in Spanish, French and International Business. I worked as a tutor for my last year in undergrad for French. My specialty is in grammar and phonetics. I did my senior thesis on adult language learning and strategies for the betterment of language learning in students over the age of 13.

By far, my favorite position was as a French teaching assistant during this last year because I got to follow my students' progress throughout an entire year. I love helping students grasp challenging concepts or develop strong basic skills and study habits. It is truly my favorite reward, seeing others succeed.

I also have other previous experience. In high school, I tutored for three years in all subjects from Physics to Math to Spanish. I was in all advanced placement courses and enjoyed explaining complicated concepts in easy to understand formats. I was also a medal winner in the academic decathlon events for speech and interview skills, something that has served me well in finding a career in the finance industry.

I have studied Spanish for eight years and French for seven years. I lived in Europe studying both of these languages for a year my penultimate year in college, and consider myself to be fluent in both. I also studied German for five years and consider myself an excellent resource for introduction level students. I have an excellent knowledge of grammar and deeply enjoy helping people unlock their communication potential or just the ability to do more than they initially thought that they could.

I have an excellent knowledge of English grammar and communicating well is a deep passion of mine. I enjoy writing and helping others communicate well. I am also an excellent resource for reading comprehension help and preparation of essays. I have worked as a speech coach for my academic decathlon team in high school and I love to help people deliver clear and concise messages in all public formats, creating a clear story for the listener to follow.

I am a very passionate person, and I love teaching. I like imparting my knowledge to others and sharing in the learning experience. I think that everyone has the possibility to be good at anything they set their mind to even if it is a challenge. It is the challenge of life that makes us all better people, and the best place to start learning that is in the classroom. Please contact me for your academic needs. I want to help you or your student do their best.

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.

English

I am an avid reader. I got 34 points as a score on my ACT reading exam. I also took both AP Language and AP literature and am well versed in the structure of both exams. Additionally, in my free time, I write poetry and edit stories for friends. I have a strong knowledge of grammar patterns and am able to share this knowledge with others of all skill levels.

French

I lived in Brussels for eight months, attending the ULB and working as a receptionist for a French-speaking firm. I also studied French at Ohio Wesleyan University and have been studying the language for almost eight years. Additionally, I spent the last year of my university career working as a French teaching assistant. I enjoy collaborating with students in the language learning process.

Handwriting

In elementary school, I was required to learn both Zaner-Bloser and D'nealian handwriting styles both in cursive and print writing. I also have a hobby of calligraphy and enjoy learning how to write better. I am a strong believer in the importance of penmanship and enjoy helping others improve their handwriting to be better understood by others.

Reading

I have been reading at a sixth grade level or higher since the third grade. I achieved high marks on both the ACT and the SAT for reading comprehension. I also took AP Language and AP Literature classes in high school which gave me a strong basis of knowledge of analyzing texts for deeper meaning.

Spanish

I have spent almost 9 years studying Spanish. In doing so, I have helped many of my friends in their studies on an unofficial basis. Additionally, I spent five months studying in Seville, Spain learning how to speak the language better by attending the University of Seville.

Study Skills

Throughout my academic career, I had to experiment with a variety of study skills that eventually led me to success. From visual diagrams to note-taking to flash cards, I have had things that worked and didn't work. I offer my challenges at finding a style that worked for me as experience for other students. I am an expert organizer and a super time manager, and I want to help find strategies that work with my specific student the best based on their type of learning style.
