About Emily

I love to have fun and I love to learn. To put it simply, I love to have fun learning.

I have a degree in Elementary Education from Centenary College of Louisiana. I am a teacher at a local private school in Shreveport teaching 2nd and 3rd grade reading, language, spelling and math. I also teach K-6 science lab. I have worked in various settings including public, private, and homeschool situations.

I have in the past offered services for middle and high school students, at this time I am not taking any additional students above 6th grade.

I am currently available for evening and weekend tutoring.

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 my elementary education degree from Centenary College. I love teaching math and reading skills and have found my biggest successes in working with elementary students in math. I believe in multisensory instruction whenever possible.

Elementary Math

I have years of experience teaching elementary math to many students. I have taught from many different curriculum providers and feel comfortable assisting with homework and enrichment for grades K-6,

Phonics

I am an elementary teacher who has taught students to read using a combination of phonics and sight words. I teach spelling skills with phonics skills.

Reading

I am an elementary school teacher that has worked with reading students between second and sixth grade.

Social Studies

I have experience with elementary and middle school level social studies instruction and tutoring. I am able to help with geography, and US and world history topics.

Special Needs

I have worked with special needs students both as a teacher and a camp counselor. My experience has included students with both learning disabilities and emotional/behavioral disabilities. When I tutor special needs students, I tailor their curriculum to their learning styles and target the gaps in previous learning that are currently affecting academic progress.

Study Skills

I have a history of working with students in order to help them get the most out of what they are studying. I used whatever resources best work for that child: binder/folder organization, work boxes, visual organizers for content area information, outlines, notecards, etc. I also work with students on the skills needed to use such organizers such as scanning/skimming, dictionary skills, and research skills (both online and paper based).
