Bio

I was a classroom teacher for 20 years in a NYC private school, primarily in 3rd and 4th grades. I also helped 5th and 6th graders after school with homework and executive function skills. I have been tutoring online for about 2 years. My students vary by age and needs. Currently, I am working with students in grades 3-9, as well as acting as a writing coach to high school, college, and grad school students.

I was a classroom teacher for 20 years in a NYC private school, primarily in 3rd and 4th grades. I also helped 5th and 6th graders after school with homework and executive function skills. I have been tutoring online for about 2 years. My students vary by age and needs. Currently, I am working with students in grades 3-9, as well as acting as a writing coach to high school, college, and grad school students.

I offer a variety of remote tutoring, coaching, and enrichment services and programs:
* Tutoring and/or homework help in reading, writing, grammar, spelling, math, and social studies/history.
* Language arts enrichment, including genre-based writing and guided literature studies.
* Writing and editing skills coaching.
* Executive function and study skills coaching.
* Test prep (ERB, ISEE, SSAT, and others).

I also have my certification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, with a specialty certificate in teaching Business English.

I create customized plans. Although we meet remotely, I bring enthusiasm, encouragement, and humor to every session.

I have a Yale Law School JD and a degree in Communications from Boston University. I am a competitive crossword puzzler, an accomplished writer, and a crack editor.

I look forward to hearing from you. I'm happy to answer any questions you have so you can determine whether I am the right fit for your needs.

Reading

I taught reading for 20 years (grades 3 and 4). I currently tutor several students in grades 4-9 in the area of reading. Due to my experience in upper elementary and middle school grades, I primarily teach reading comprehension and fluency, rather than the mechanics of reading. Vocabulary development and how to infer word meaning from context are often an important component, as well as such skills as: annotating, summarizing, sequencing, main idea, themes, literary elements, making connections, inferring, and synthesizing.

Skillful and patient teacher. Highly recommended!

My 4th grade son has lessons with Teacher Emily for a month so far. She has a great lesson structure and my son is eager to have lesson with her. We are looking forward to have her over the next couple of years to improve my son’s writing skills.
