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 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,
Emily

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?

Elementary (K-6th)

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.
Phonics,

Phonics

My success in teaching phonics to preschool and elementary school aged children is based on the following: it must be fun, colorful and free of stress. I use repetition with hearing, speaking, reading and writing, and a rewards system (with parental approval). I provide simple meanings of words based on the child's daily life experiences. The child tells me about their favorite television characters, and I incorporate that into the lessons, which entertains and increases attention levels. When appropriate, I use magnetic letters, felt board letters, audio feedback with iPod (I may record the student's voice), easel board large written letters, story books, and other numerous teaching tools. In summary, whatever level your student has achieved, I will introduce, reinforce or enhance the learning of phonics to promote reading comprehension and pronunciation.

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.

Study Skills

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!

English

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.

Great College Essay Tutoring

Emily did a great job helping my son draft a college essay. she was thorough and quick with reply even at late hours. Thanks to her coaching we submitted the early action app in time and we felt good about the finished essay. many thanks!

Steve, 3 lessons with Emily

Skillful, knowledgeable, and dependable with college essays!

I asked Emily to work with my daughter in helping her refine and polish her Common Application essay and supplements. Emily helped her bring more focus in her essays, advising her to hone in on her personal interests and goals in order to craft the perfect essays. She really understands what it takes to make an essay stand apart from the rest. Her dedication and attention to detail helped my daughter improve her essays. She gave useful tips and suggestions that resulted in fantastic final products and was able to make edits while still maintaining my daughter’s voice and personal writing style. I would recommend her to anyone looking for some guidance with college essays, as she is very skillful, knowledgeable, dependable, and prompt!

Lalaine, 8 lessons with Emily

Very knowledge and loves tutoring

We just had first session, she has good passion to teach and has good patience levels. My son loves her class which gives me more satisfaction. We would like to have more sessions with her. Thanks Emily

Tejas, 6 lessons with Emily

I Got In!

Isn't that what you want to say after having someone help you with your personal statement? Well, thanks to Emily, I've got into the Denver Publishing Institute (a program that only accepts 95 students out of hundreds of applicants), and I couldn't be happier. Emily reviewed both my personal statement and resume, researched the Denver Publishing Institute, and did extra research on publishing and editing to give me the best feedback possible for my personal statement and resume. I was impressed by her knowledge and professional skills and felt like she really put in the extra effort to help me succeed. I was also amazed at how she was able to take my 4-page personal statement and cut it down to two well-crafted pages that brought out my voice better than I could! I would highly recommend Emily to college and graduate students who are struggling with their resume and personal statement. Every hour with her is absolutely worth it!

Crystal, 3 lessons with Emily

Great Tutor

Emily is a knowledgeable and patient tutor. Before each tutoring section, Emily always makes sure to prepare notes or become familiar with the subject needed for help. If my daughter does not understand something, she is able to break down the subject in a matter that is more understandable. Emily is also very convenient and is willing to go either to library, a small quiet restaurant, or your own home for tutoring.

Elena, 4 lessons with Emily

Very patient and detailed

My son has made excellent progress in middle school English language arts. Emily helped him improve skills such as sentence structure, grammar, essay writing, revising, editing, proofreading and reading comprehension. She also taught him new study skills for test preparation.

Jade, 48 lessons with Emily

Very patient!

My son's 8th grade English language arts skills improved from Emily's tutoring. He strengthened his skills in sentence structure, grammar, affixes and essay organization with revising, editing and proofreading. These skills will also help him excel on the PARRC and other standardized tests.

Malathi, 30 lessons with Emily

Great Tutor

Emily showed me how to revise, edit and proofread my college essay and supplements as well as prepare for an alumni interview. She provided many excellent suggestions that enabled me to improve the organization, vocabulary and clarity of my voice. Additionally, I learned how to put the frosting on the cake; when everything was done, my admission packet was stronger and more conclusive.

Sean, 13 lessons with Emily

Responsible and patient tutor

We had a great time with Emily. She is soft spoken, patient and organized. She answered all our questions and gave several online references to further help with homework. Thank you.
