About Emily

I love being able to pass on my love of learning with the students I am teaching or tutoring. As a summa cum laude graduate in college, I know what years of patience and hard work can do for a person. Although I am new to tutoring, I have taught and substituted in the elementary level from preschool to 6th Grade.

I currently am not teaching, but am current on my teaching license. I believe that tutoring will be a great way to keep my teaching skills fine tuned and to be able to still work with my passion and make a difference in children's lives.

I specialize in the areas of all Elementary subjects, although math and English related subjects are my favorites. I strive to make each tutoring session fun and somewhat challenging, but I do not want to come off as overwhelming. Once a child feels overwhelmed, defeat comes soon after. That is the last thing that I want, because I know a child can be capable of whatever they put their mind to!

I will assign homework or practice of some kind after each lesson, and will provide periodic assessments to show progress. My available hours can be flexible, based on what is needed. I only work about 15 hours a week currently, so I can work around pretty much anyone's schedule. Please contact me if you would be interested in me helping you to see your full potential in the classroom.

I feel comfortable teaching math in several different formats and know that many students learn best by doing. I offer a chance at practicing the lesson topic for the day after introducing it. Practice can be very telling of one's understanding of the material and helps me to see what a child may not understand. I have experience with algebra, geometry and calculus.

English has always been my favorite subject in school growing up. I have always enjoyed reading, and using correct grammar and spelling has always been important to me. I take great pride in the essays and papers that I have written in the past. I write in a way that does not make me feel overwhelmed, and I would love to teach others in this way.

Through my teaching training and teaching positions, I have had experience with all of the subjects across the board. I feel comfortable through these experiences to be able to give any elementary child a balanced teaching experience. I like to use different teaching techniques to fit each individual child because I know that each child learns differently. I want you to be successful and enjoy what you are learning.

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 received my teaching degree in Elementary Education in 2010 from St. Catherine University. Through my college classes/fieldwork experiences and my teaching/substituting positions I feel that I possess the knowledge and experience necessary to tutor students now.
