About Emily

Graduating from Birmingham-Southern College with a B.A. in English and spending a year and a half teaching English in Chile, I have experience teaching and tutoring.

I am passionate about learning, which I have realized comes from the effectiveness of a teacher. I have always had a love for the English language, words, and even grammar. However, my love for the Spanish language was driven by two of my teachers. Without them, I would never have pursued a minor in Spanish, studied abroad in Chile, or gone back to work in Chile after graduating college. Because of them, I was inspired to pursue teaching, as I realized one's love for a subject can be inspired by a great teacher. I aim to inspire and motivate my students while relaying the importance and inter-connectedness of language, writing and reading with every aspect of their lives.

I have both an academic and informal background in Spanish. I learned it academically while studying for my Spanish minor at Birmingham-Southern College, and I learned the informalities and more common usage of Spanish during my two years in Chile.

While at Birmingham-Southern earning my B.A. in English, I worked through various means of writing, whether that be creative, journalistic or investigative work. The English department awarded me with the Patricia Finley Watkins Scholarship, an excellence-in-writing award, and I am passionate about research, as I created my own provost-approved class exploring a theme that I had been dying to crack open and investigate. Words fascinate me, from the wording of a text or email, which can change one’s impression based on one word-choice, to a complex research paper. I spent hours teaching ESL students not only the meaning of one word, but the connotation that comes with that word and the appropriate context to use it in. I have a passion for English language, literature, reading, writing and grammar and love sharing this with my students.

Contact me if you have any questions or are interested in scheduling a lesson. I can't wait to meet you!
