About Emily

As a recent graduate of Ohio University with a degree in English Literature and a contributor to the university's writing center, I have developed and maintained effective methods for improving students' understanding and use of proper grammar, syntax, punctuation and sentence structure. When it comes to writing (research papers and otherwise) I find that it is typically most helpful to begin with the basics---ensuring the student's comprehension of grammar and writing rules, then moving into the proper application thereof. Once we have moved past grammar and comprehension, paper structure is the next step to ensuring a student's success in writing. Having received a 5 on the AP exam for English in high school, my analysis skills when it comes to literature have always been prominent, but have improved significantly. My GPA in my English subjects at Ohio University was 3.5, and I spent most of my time studying Renaissance and Shakespearean British Literature, and 19th and 20th century American Literature.

I received my Masters in Secondary English Education from the University of Kentucky, and have taught for two years at a local high school. I have a consistently high pass rate for AP exams (I am College Board certified for AP Language) and have worked with students to raise ACT scores - with gains of up to 11 points in English, 9 points in Reading and 9 composite points.

Additionally, my experience in American, European and Russian History (I minored in history at Ohio University) has made me particularly knowledgeable in the field, and my own struggles with retaining the information has made me distinctly able to figure out ways to make the information relevant, interesting, and certainly much easier to grasp.

Aside from my skills---both inherent and learned---in English and History, the personality traits I possess which make me particularly apt to tutor are my enthusiasm, passion, punctuality, patience and love of teaching.
