About Emily


Bio

I'm currently based in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and I've been tutoring full time since the start of the pandemic. I started tutoring when I was 15, but I've come back to it again and again because I love learning and working with students. In addition to assistant-teaching English, History, and Biology classes in 2018-2019 in a bilingual program in Madrid, Spain, I have individually tutored over 30 students in History and/or Political Science; 40 students in writing, rhetorical and literary...

I'm currently based in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and I've been tutoring full time since the start of the pandemic. I started tutoring when I was 15, but I've come back to it again and again because I love learning and working with students. In addition to assistant-teaching English, History, and Biology classes in 2018-2019 in a bilingual program in Madrid, Spain, I have individually tutored over 30 students in History and/or Political Science; 40 students in writing, rhetorical and literary analysis, and reading comprehension; 10 students in pre-algebra, algebra, and SHSAT prep; and 8 students in English-as-a-second-language.

My students range in age (middle school students to middle-aged adults), and I cover a wide variety of topics. I tutor SHSAT prep, middle school math, algebra, and geometry, as well as social sciences and humanities subjects. I often teach students how to analyze historical sources and write for history classes; I teach and review beginner, intermediate, and advanced essay skills; I offer college essay assistance and much more. I love when I can show a student what they are capable of achieving and help them develop their own confidence. I also believe that fit matters when it comes to tutoring, and I'm happy to consult over the phone with students or parents before an official lesson.

When it comes to test prep and application essays, the process can be tedious - so I try to keep my students motivated, to make tutoring a positive experience, and to help them build widely applicable skills. I think it's important to get students engaged through challenging activities, value their input, and address their anxieties around learning and grading/scoring.

I have worked with over 30 high school students on writing, literary analysis, rhetorical analysis, and editing skills. I’ve been tutoring for 10 years and full-time since February 2020.
Literature,

Literature

I have worked with about 30 students in the past three years on writing skills or paper assignments, and 12 of those have been specifically focused on literary analysis. I often work with students in English classes but I have also created lesson plans, assignments, and rubrics for 6 students to build or sharpen analysis and writing skills. I have worked with both native speakers and non-native speakers on poetry, novels, non-fiction, and a range of other materials.
Writing,

I have tutored about 30 students in the past three years in writing, including middle school, high school, college, and grad students. I work with students on narrowing their focus for papers and essays, organizing their evidence or conducting academic research, creating a thesis, planning a paper, writing the paper, and of course the revision and editing process. I've worked with 8 AP English or history students on their writing, who all achieved passing scores or better (3s, 4s, or 5s). I often teach students of all ages fundamental essay-writing and literary analysis skills, and I have worked with curriculums as well as creating my own.

History

American History,

American History

I majored in Government at Georgetown University and studied history both directly and as an integral part of easily half of the classes I took. I also taught history to students aged 13-16 in a bilingual program where I was an assistant-teacher in Madrid, Spain, during the 2018-2019 school year. My primary duties in that job were technically related to creating and running activities, but I ended up covering or assisting with lessons several times a week as well. I am familiar with games, activities, and strategies which make the study of history interesting and relevant. I also truly believe that skills related to studying history (analyzing sources for intention, truth, bias, legitimacy; connecting various events to see a larger historical theme, etc) are necessary in a world where truth is increasingly difficult to parse out. I can assist students with studying for AP US history, citizenship, or other exams, as well as papers, smaller assignments, and analysis or study skills as they relate to history.
Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

I graduated from Georgetown in 2018 after majoring in government and politics, and I've worked with about 15 college students on government, political science, and/or history papers in the past three years (starting senior year) as a part-time tutor. I help students understand content and concepts for a range of subjects including government and politics, political science, international relations, and political philosophy. I often work with students on written assignments and writing skills, ranging from simple homework to 20-page term papers.
Political Science,

Political Science

I have taken and achieved honors in core political science courses such as Political Science research and methods, Intro to Political Philosophy, Intro to International Relations, Comparative Politics, US Government and Politics, AP US History, etc. I have also taken 8 upper-level political science or related courses, such as Politics of Inequality, Political Sociology, and Terrorism and Insurgency in Africa. While I do not yet have my degree, I am capable of assisting students with work in introductory and mid-level political science courses, and can help with paper-writing or studying for any level undergraduate or high school course.
World History,

World History

I have tutored 6 AP world history students, both for their coursework and to prepare for the exam. I work with students on note-taking and study skills, content, concepts, and writing skills for this course. Last year my students achieved two 3s, two 4s, and two 5s. In addition to tutoring 10 other high school and college students in various regions and time periods of history, I studied history in college and I helped teach history in a bilingual secondary school in Madrid during the 2018-2019 school year.

College Counseling

I work with high school and college students on essays of all kinds, for English classes and applications, and my goal is always to teach them transferable writing skills in addition to the academic or application support I provide. I myself was a transfer, so I've been through this process twice, and I know how intimidating it can be. I've worked with about ten students on applications (as of summer 2020), and I focus on improving their ability to write concise, clear, and engaging essays for both applications and in a variety of school subjects.

Excellent teacher!

Emily is a best teacher by any measure. We have tried so many teachers and Emily has certainly been the best. Our son thinks the world of her. Very patient, comprehensive and understanding. Our son has improved tremendously since he took his sessions with her. We are very lucky that she is teaching our son. I can’t recommend her enough.

Knowledgeable and fun to work with

My daughter loves working with Emily. She is a great tutor and started working on my daughter’s weekness areas right away, I could see her confident improving in her first few classes.

Experienced and knowledgeable tutor

Emily is experienced with college application essays. She pays attention to details and helps you explore your strength. You can also improve your writing skill through the lessons with her. Great tutor for writing.

Professional and patient

Emily helped me with editing and polishing two application essays for grad school programs. She was very patient and had a lot of great suggestions in how I can improve the essays. I especially appreciate her perspective because I wanted an outsider to read the essays and give a more objective opinion on them. Emily was also very responsive and communicative and was able to give me feedbacks in very short amount of time. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for support on their essays! :)

Rate her 5 stars

Working with Emily was great. She was very helpful and taught me rules about writing as well. She has definitely helped me become a better writer in such a short period of time!

Helpful and respectful tutor

Emily guided me in taking my paper from rough draft to final version. She was super helpful, and I liked that she focused on developing my ideas rather than introducing her own ideas.
