About Emma

Hello!

I have extensive tutoring experience --

In university, I worked as a language, conversation, and writing tutor for undergraduates.

During years as a nanny, I worked as a tutor in all high school and advanced high school subjects..

I have two years of experience as a Community Education French teacher and instructional designer. I designed the curriculum and implemented my courses, resulting in excellent student feedback over a variety of student populations.

Formerly an English Composition instructor at a Minnesota University, I am passionate about education, and fluid in teaching style. I enjoy the challenge of working with my students to find a way to understand the material. The best feeling in the world is to see the shift from confusion to confidence on a student's face!

As an academic and technical editor, I have experience with multiple style guides and keen attention to detail. I've studied rhetoric and information architecture, graduating with a Master of Arts, to assist in identifying information gaps and style issues in both academic and professional texts.

I am willing to meet in person any student in the Twin Cities Metro area, and online tutoring for pupils outside of the Twin Cities, including editing and proofing of papers and assignments.

I am confident that, together, we can find a way to meet your goals!

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 a Masters in an English field and was formerly an English Composition instructor at the college level.

ACT Math

I tutor all subject areas of the ACT, including the Math portion.

ACT Science

I tutor all subject areas of the ACT.

English

I'm a former university English composition teacher.

French

2 years French language teacher and curriculum designer with 20+ classes and 100+ students, 1 year French conversation group leader through a university, 1 year private tutor, 8 years French fluency

General Computer

I have more than 15 years of active academic and professional experience. I have also designed computer course curriculum.

Grammar

I've taught both English and French writing and language courses at college level and for community education. I've designed curriculum tailored to many student demographics, especially for teens and adults.

Phonics

As a bilingual individual, language and alphabets hold a puzzling interest to me that I have examined and deciphered. My work experience boasts tutoring as a nanny for middle and high school aged children, while babysitting experience has provided learning experience with elementary-aged children. Furthermore, my academic transcript reflects my interest in developmental psychology, a heavy focus on speech, grammar and writing, and a further interest in written communications.

Proofreading

I am a fulltime professional editor.

Reading

I specialize in language, both comprehension and production (English/French).

Study Skills

Successful testing isn't always about knowing all of the answers; sometimes, it is as simple as knowing how to take a test. From cracking the book to filling in the blanks, the trick is to scout out the pertinent information with a whole understanding of processes in any subject. As a top scorer on the GRE (92% writing and 89% verbal) and ACT (32), I have researched and mastered the standardized testing rubrics. Beyond standardized testing, I have honed my study skills to result in an AA degree (GPA 4.00), a BA degree (GPA 3.82), and an MA degree (GPA 3.87).
