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.
Emily hasn’t set a schedule.
Emily was great to work with. She worked with my 8th grader. She was very thorough throughout the session. Her passion was very evident and her attention to detail was great. Her communication skills were A+. She provided explanations to my son to make him a better writer. I will definitely use her in the future as my son continues his studies.Berra, 2 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 knowledgeable, professional, and prompt with editing and coaching my son on his college application essay. Emily removed most of his "stress" and now he is very happy we selected 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
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
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
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
