About Emily


Bio

Tutoring writing combines my two biggest passions; I love to write and I love to help people. I was a literature major in my undergraduate degree and a technical writer/editor in my graduate degree. As a master's student, I was a full-time writing and ESL tutor. In this role, I learned how to meet students' individual needs and often developed a long-term rapport with students which enabled me to see their writing grow over time.

Tutoring writing combines my two biggest passions; I love to write and I love to help people. I was a literature major in my undergraduate degree and a technical writer/editor in my graduate degree. As a master's student, I was a full-time writing and ESL tutor. In this role, I learned how to meet students' individual needs and often developed a long-term rapport with students which enabled me to see their writing grow over time.

As a tutor, I love to help others understand their writing and communication skills--what they already know--and give them additional tips and tricks for how to continue growing as a writer. As a fellow student, I learned a great deal more about writing, in general, from helping others with their writing. Not only did I feel I helped students with their writing needs, but students helped me think about writing, communication and learning styles, MS Word, writing styles/genres/formats, and their needs for a compassionate listener and assistant. Tutoring writing was an enriching experience that I would like to continue, as I am proud of my skills and passion in helping others succeed in communicating effectively.

I am an expert in academic/business/professional writing and grammar; am proficient in many different research methods; and excel greatly at communicating with individuals from different backgrounds, including people from different cultures, ethnic backgrounds, genders, and ability-levels. I also tutor writing from all different subjects areas, including composition, literature, film, political science, history, lab reports, technical/business/professional writing (resumes, cover letters, proposals, etc.), social sciences, and so on. I am perfectly happy discussing subject-matter with students, if I am confident on the subject, to try to help them understand certain areas that they may want to examine further through research.

I would love to help you understand your strengths and any things I would suggest that might help your writing grow. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and learning from you, as well!

Film

In my undergraduate degree, I minored in film studies. While I was not offered film production in my program, I took 20 credits on film analysis, theory, and criticism. In this minor, I focused primarily on world film, such as the films of Iran, Senegal, and South America. As a tutor, I also specialized in tutoring writing from film studies courses so gained even more experience on discussing, analyzing, and writing about films through tutoring.

Special Needs

Dyslexia

Through my first year of tutoring, I worked a recurring student who reported that she had dyslexia, which I had been trained thoroughly on in my CRLA training before I began tutoring professionally. Through my experiences with this student, I understand that students with dyslexia perform poorly when forced to rely on textual communication, exclusively. Therefore, I learned that this student excelled when she heard her own writing read aloud by another person, and that aside from her inability to learn well via text she was a very good student. I adapted to what the student reported worked best and helped her pass her MTLE exam through my work with her.

Special Needs

I worked with 4 individuals with disabilities for 6 years in the group home setting. In this time, I actively worked to teach and maintain programs with the individuals by learning their individual needs, learning styles, and personality types. Through this enriching experience, I learned a great deal about having patience and tolerance with all individuals, especially those with special needs who may need a more sympathetic ear in order to excel independently. Because of my experience in this role, I specialized in tutoring individuals with learning disabilities.
