About Emily

Struggling with a writing assignment? Stressed out over test prep? I can help! I tailor all of my lessons to fit each student, and I’m committed to seeing students not only succeed but excel.

I’m a law student at Michigan State with a double-master’s from Arizona State who has years of experience as a tutor. Over my years in college, I’ve worked as a graduate writing consultant, teaching assistant, and course grader, and my work has been published online and in print.

I can help at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to editing to formatting citations. I’m familiar with all types of writing assignments and citation styles (MLA, APA, Chicago), and since I’ve worked as a teaching assistant in numerous writing-intensive college courses, I know what teachers and professors are looking for in successful papers.

I also can help with ACT, SAT, and PSAT prep, especially the reading, writing, and essay portions. I’m skilled at helping students prepare quickly and effectively for standardized tests by emphasizing content knowledge, time management skills, and test-taking strategies. I use official ACT/SAT/PSAT practice tests and provide all of the necessary test prep materials to students at no extra cost.

I offer in-person tutoring in the Dewitt area (year-round) and at the MSU campus (during the semester). I also offer convenient online lessons at a discounted price for students who do not live in town or who want to save time and avoid the commute.

Contact me today to schedule an in-person or online lesson!

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.

ACT English

I have worked as an ACT prep tutor for years, and I help students master not only the content (such as grammar and reading comprehension) but the test-taking skills necessary to succeed on the English portion. I use official ACT practice tests and provide all of the necessary prep materials to the student at no extra cost.

ACT Reading

I have worked as an ACT prep tutor for years, and my skills as a writing tutor have helped me become a strong ACT Reading tutor. I help students master not only the content but develop the time management and test-taking skills necessary to succeed on the Reading portion. I use official ACT practice tests and provide all of the necessary prep materials for the student at no extra cost.

American History

I hold a Master of Arts in North American History, as well as a B.A. in History, from Arizona State University. I was published as an undergraduate and graduate student, and I'm proficient in historical methods, library and archival research, and the historiography of American history. I can help students not only understand the subject material but also develop the critical reading and writing skills that are necessary in order to successfully think, research, and write like a historian.

Bible Studies

I minored in religious studies at Arizona State University, and I completed college-level coursework in the Hebrew Bible (the Christian Old Testament) and the New Testament. I am knowledgeable about not only the content of the Bible but its history, its numerous translations, and the controversies surrounding it. I also took history courses about Christianity in America (such as the arrival of the Puritans) and the development of American religious traditions (such as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). Therefore, I can help students who are taking a Bible studies course in a religious setting (such as a parochial school or church) or in a secular setting (such as a university).

English

I hold a Master of Liberal Studies, and a component of the program was completing graduate-level coursework in English, including courses about rhetoric, poetry, and creative nonfiction.

I was in charge of creating writing workshops that students could attend, including a workshop about grammar and writing a thesis-driven paper.

European History

I hold a Master of Arts in History, as well as a B.A. in World History, from Arizona State University. I was published as an undergraduate and graduate student, and I'm proficient in historical methods, library and archival research, and historiographical work.

I also completed an original piece of research as a capstone project for my major that explored the public's perception of certain political figures based on how they were portrayed in pop culture. I can help students who are struggling in a political science course, preparing for AP tests, or designing their own experiment.
