About Emily

My approach to tutoring is based on my belief that each child learns differently. Therefore, I just need to figure out which learning style works best for your child. For example, if my goal is to teach your child how to write their letters then I would involve as many senses as possible during my teaching process. I would have the child sing songs about how you form the letters, create letters with their body, make letters out of textured paper, form letters with their finger in shaving cream, search for specific letters in written text, and then finally write the letters while describing the strokes out loud. I believe every child has the ability to be successful, I just need to find out how they learn.

I taught preschool and kindergarten students for four years. My approach to teaching these younger children is to bring enthusiasm and creativity into each subject. If I make it sound exciting and fun, then I will keep the child's attention. At this age, they are so eager to learn, yet they also get frustrated very easily. So, I have also used the tactic of letting the student "teach" me about a subject because when you tell someone else how to do something sometimes it helps clear things up for yourself. I am an effective teacher because I truly enjoy working with children and helping reach that "ah-ha" moment when it finally clicks in their brain.

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.
