Hello. I am a private tutor for K - 12, college and adult students. My BA is in English/Literature & Communications. My MS is in publishing. My expertise is in showing students how to improve their writing skills, reading comprehension and vocabulary. Study skills, time management and organizational skills are other areas of my expertise, as well as tutoring for the common essay and supplemental questions for the college application. I offer a full range of services for all grades, and I am a homework helper as well. Written expression is the most important skill to develop, because it is used to write reports and research papers in all academic subjects, as well as for test essay responses. I also tutor in researching, taking notes, study skills, organizational skills, time management, and assignment planning - all part of the package that promotes academic success. Tutors help students who want to achieve higher grades. I use fun methods to help the younger students become involved and motivated. To maximize their potential, I adapt my methods to appeal to the specific age of the student, his/her temperament, and learning style.
For the K - 1 student, I offer a program to supplement schoolwork, specifically how to write the alphabet and numbers, learn phonics, recall and write sight words, reading comprehension and sentence writing. I offer students in grades 1 - 3 support in reading comprehension, speech and writing, continued phonics, plus vocabulary, parts of speech, punctuation, spelling rules and proofreading skills. Because the student-teacher ratio in public school is often 25:1, students cannot receive the individual instruction they require when learning how to form the letters with the correct pencil grip. These skills are essential for developing legible handwriting. Many young learners need more time and repetition than they can receive during school to master these skills.

I hope to hear from you soon. I will travel to your home or local library up to a distance of 20 miles.

Thank you,

Public Speaking

Good Morning. I'm here today to speak with you about how you can feel comfortable in front of the C-R-O-W-D - who you fear will ridicule you and laugh at you. My formula is: Preparation (tools of the trade) + relaxation (your heart, mind, stomach, breath and voice) + emulation (find a role model you like/love). No more sweaty palms, dry throat and lapses of memory. Practice x 3 with me = Success. With a BA in literature and communications, a MS in publishing, demo jobs, writing for newspapers and magazines, publicity work, and teaching private and public school students, I can guide you through the processes necessary to write, deliver and wow your audience. When is your deadline?

I have been successfully working for several years as a tutor through the Wyzant platform, proofreading all kinds of written materials as well as revising, editing and using rubrics to help students meet grade level expectations. My testimonials from parents are excellent. I have two degrees: a MS in publishing and a BA in literature and communications.

I hold a New Jersey State certificate to work as a substitute teacher for grades K - 12 in New Jersey public and private schools. I have been working for two years in this capacity, mostly with K - 8th grade, my preference. I have just finished successfully tutoring a student who completed 1st grade. We worked on phonetics, reading and writing. I have also tutored another 1st grade student in reading comprehension and writing. Additionally, I have tutored a 6th grade student in writing, and a 3rd grade student in reading and writing, spelling and grammar.

My qualifications as a tutor in reading comprehension are as follows: I have a BA Magna cum laude in Literature and Communications and a MS in Publishing. I am a substitute teacher K - 12 and teach language arts. I currently tutor students in grades K - 7 in reading comprehension working with all forms of literature (novels, poetry, essays, newspaper articles and standardized tests). I assist students in comprehending their textbook reading assignments in all subjects (history, science, math, health, language arts). I am familiar with the public and private school reading lists having working in both sector. I have worked as a newspaper reporter and as a publicist.
Spelling,

Spelling

There are multiple ways to learn 4th grade spelling. I use the ones that the student feels most comfortable with. A 4th grade student is ready to learn spelling rules and I will emphasize learning these with a rhyme or song if that makes it easier and more fun. I also emphasize spelling aloud with repetition, because language is learned by hearing and speaking. The student must overcome shyness and speak loudly and clearly when reciting words and syllables. Additionally, writing the words carefully and using them in a sentence by speaking and writing will prepare the student for the spelling test. If the student has an iPod, I will supervise them to speak the word and the sentence and record their own voice. On the following days, they can listen to this recording and reinforce their learning. This is a helpful technology tool to use when in the car or on the school bus. Homework is checked carefully for neatness and accuracy.

Below is a brief outline of the "what and how" for my study skills teaching method. Different types of learners excel using particular study methods, but a little of everything goes a long way... Together we select the best practices from the following choices: Tricks help! Acronyms help you remember material, especially when students create their own. Recitation of notes, using an iPod to hear your own voice helps commit facts and notes to memory, flash cards help drill the facts into your visual and mental storehouse, practice writing short essays, sketch a picture/drawing with labels, a graph, a map, write an outline of class and chapter notes. GO TO the teacher and ask, "Hi, I'm just double checking; will this and this be on the test?" Make sure you know all the material to study. Get missed notes from when you were absent. Review past test formats and past errors - so you don't repeat them. Understand the question wording, i.e, explain with examples, show all work, choose the best answer... Plan ahead - block off study time on your calendar/organizer. Welcome to study skills. Develop a steady relationship with these tried and true methods. Good luck and remember to check your work!

Speech, reading and writing are part of English, in which I am certified. I can tutor in speech: how to pronounce letters, the beginning, middle and ending sounds. I've worked with pre-school and elementary school children in pronunciation of vowels, consonants and combinations of letters - sounding out loud and using rhymes and patterns in words to recognize similarities and differences. Speaking words while reading words and writing letters while pronouncing the sounds of letters are reinforcing methods for developing speech and word recognition. I have tutored privately in these areas, working with elementary school-aged children and I have worked for two years as a substitute teacher in K - 12 in language arts and communications classes.

For SAT tutoring in the language arts sections, I use the College Board Official Study Guide and require my students to purchase a copy. I enjoy working one-on-one with students who are serious about practicing to improve their test-taking skills and language arts skills. I am easy to get along with, have a sense of humor, and take into consideration the student's learning style. A typical tutoring session consists of reading and discussing the directions in the study guide, practicing exercises in the various language arts sections and a question and answer period with reinforcement in the weakest areas. I expect students to take notes, review them at home and use them during their practice. Homework is assigned and corrected at the next tutoring session. Timed practice essays are written at home and emailed to me a few days before the tutoring session; I bring constructive criticism for each essay to the session and the student will take notes and rewrite sections as needed. Home practice culminates with the student writing timed essays during the tutoring session followed by analysis and critiquing of the essay. After several weeks of practice, students will take a complete and timed language arts SAT test at home from the Official Study Guide and online at the College Board website. Tests will be analyzed and discussed at a tutoring session and the weaker areas will be isolated for continued practice. Students should understand that they can take the SAT several times to improve their scores. I emphasize that students use the College Board SAT website Practice section, and we will navigate the site together during a tutoring session.

Excellent tutor

As someone who has never applied to grad school, I had a difficult time editing my essays on my own sought out help from Emily, who was very patient and understanding of what I needed to say in my essays. She is eloquent and very thorough and takes her own time to edit essays which I think is amazing. If I ever need more help I will definitely contact her again!

Graduate School Personal Statement

Emily B. was extremely helpful during my process of graduate school applications. I had to write a 1-2 page personal statement that I had been stumped on for months. I sent her what I had and for everything she added/changed in my essay she wrote a thorough explanation of why she did so. She was positive, motivating and continued checking in on me throughout the process. I eventually submitted by first application in for my nurse practitioner program, and got in a week later! I’m so thankful to have found a tutor like her. Now that I’m starting school in the fall, I plan to continue using her skills to help me with my grad school papers!

Alexandra, 1 lesson with Emily

Knowledgeable, skilled instructor, patient, kind

Emily is tutoring my 14 yr. old daughter to identify and strengthen her grammar and writing skills for high school honors English next year. I am very selective and have worked with many tutors in the past for my older sibling. Emily is an excellent tutor. She is very knowledgeable, insightful, thorough, patient, and explains the concepts at the students level. An added bonus is her professionalism. She always gets back to you in a timely manner, she is committed to her work and goes above and beyond. My daughter enjoys her sessions and describes Emily as very intelligent, kind and funny. I just wish we had found her earlier!
