About Emma

I have experience in teaching dance to children ages 3-6 which includes children with behavioral disorders (i.e. autism). I am currently an art student at Virginia Commonwealth University, but I am transferring to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for the fall 2016 semester. I am extremely excited to work with children, and any opportunity to be creative. I graduated from Westwood High School with a 3.7 out of 4.0 GPA challenging myself exclusively in honors and AP courses, and my current GPA at VCU is 4.0. I am extremely dedicated to my studies and will foster that same dedication in those that I tutor. I have not had any previous experience with tutoring, but I would love any opportunity to start in the field.

I have always loved math, both learning and teaching. I was usually there to help my friends and classmate with problems in class. I scored the highest in the math section of the 2014 SATs with a score of 690 out of 800. I work great with elementary-aged children and am confident that I can clarify any issues with problem solving or understanding math concepts.

I love vocabulary and am constantly expanding upon my lexicon. I was in honors English classes all through high school and took AP Language and Composition senior year. I also received a score of 670 out of 800 on the reading section of the SATs. In college, I am in honors English classes and a member of the Honors College at Virginia Commonwealth University.

I put a lot of effort into studying for exams and have discovered tips and tricks that make things easier to memorize. I am excited to share my process with anyone that needs it, but I am also extremely excited to help others discover what they need to succeed in studying. I am an excellent test taker. I also received a 2000 out of 2400 on my 2014 SATs.

I have an extensive background in fine art from studio classes throughout high school including AP studio art. I am currently an art student in the process of transferring to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the #2 art school in the country. I am self-taught in a few Adobe programs (Photoshop, InDesign) and love to draw professionally and leisurely. I have professional training in drawing, sculpture, composition, and time based media from my foundation year at VCU and am looking towards a design field as a potential career path. I received a score of 5 for my AP portfolio senior year.

I am very approachable and open to any scheduling changes!

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.

Drawing

I am currently an art student at Virginia Commonwealth University (the #4 art school in the country). I will be transferring to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for the fall 2016 semester (the #2 art school in the country). I took studio art 1, 2, 3 and AP studio throughout high school. I received a score of 5 on my AP portfolio submitted in May 2015.

Study Skills

I received a score of 2000 out of 2400 on my 2014 SATs. I always study for exams and have taken AP psychology during which I learned studying enhancement such as the "spacing effect" which states that you are more likely to remember information that is spread out over time. I use study helpers to help myself, and am dedicated to helping others conquer their own studying techniques.
