About Emily

My name is Emily. I graduated from Henry Ford College with a degree in secondary education. My philosophy on education is, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." I value comprehension most of all with students, and within that, relating course material to the student in a way they can understand. I think the key to learning is by establishing critical thinking and comprehension as opposed to memorization.
I have studied all sorts of subjects, English literature being my favorite. I would like experience in tutoring so I can eventually become a teacher after completing the Teach For American program, pursuant to my degree. I feel education is the most important institution in someone's life, and that learning does not stop outside of the classroom.
