About Emeka

Welcome!! As a website content contributor, editor, essayist, tutor, and aspiring author, one of my professional ambitions is to facilitate the literacy development of students and non native English speakers. Since my youth I have been a voracious reader; first consuming titles by Beverly Cleary and Donald Sobol to the young adult fiction works of Walter Dean Myers, Robert Lipsyte, and Chris Lynch before transitioning to primarily non-fiction works like The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Soledad Brother, The Selected Writings and Speeches of Marcus Garvey, in early adulthood. My goal is to transfer the enthusiasm and incessant passion for reading and writing that I've acquired over the years to any student that affords me the privilege of navigating their literary journey. For non native English speakers it is to enhance their comprehension of the English language until they get to a level where they can approach public speaking and writing with confidence. Understanding that learning processes are different for everyone, I will afford each student the individual care, time, attention, and patience necessary to hasten their overall growth.


I have attended several post secondary academic institutions including Montgomery Community College in Maryland as well as Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York. As a student at both, I majored in English with my tutoring experience beginning at Long Island University. It is there where I first began proofreading and editing essays for my fellow classmates. From there I also began volunteering my time at various libraries around the New York City area to help non native English Speakers improve their comprehension of the English language. In total I have two years of tutoring experience and one year of volunteering.

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.

English

Having acquired my primary and secondary school education in the American public school system I am in possession of a high school diploma (from Montgomery Blair High School in Maryland) as well as two years worth of college credits towards an English degree from Long Island University. It was there that I proofread, edited, and reviewed essays and mid term papers for fellow students and classmates.

Grammar

Aside from earning a near perfect score of 90% on the grammar portion of WyzAnt's English test taking part of the website, I have two years worth of college credits as an English major (Long Island University, Howard University) as well as six months of English tutoring and teaching in the New York City area. The fusion of my academic pursuits and my teaching experience qualifies me to proofread, edit, and/or review writing assignments. I also have experience writing essays and proofreading essays at the college level.

Proofreading

Having been educated through the American public school system I am in possession of my high school diploma (from Montgomery Blair High School in Maryland) as well as two years worth of college credits towards a degree in English from Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus. It was there that I proofread papers for my fellow classmates, particularly essays and mid term papers.

Reading

Having been educated in the American public school system I am in possession of a high school diploma as well as two years worth of college credits towards my degree in English from Long Island University's Brooklyn campus. I have published material online and have worked as a reading tutor at both elementary school and college levels.

Vocabulary

I have two years worth of college credits towards my degree in English from Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus and Montgomery Community College's Takoma Park Campus in Maryland. The fusion of my academic achievements and my experience teaching is what makes me qualified in the area of English vocabulary strengthening.
