About Emma

I'm a published author and have been teaching for years. After years working as an editor and writer in the magazine world, I became a professor in the CUNY system, teaching composition, research, literature as well as commercial journalism. I know the field out there and know what both colleges and employers are looking for. I love, love working with young people and love, love the writing world. I love inspiring young people to write and to have faith in their ability to think and communicate. Let me help you write the best essay about Jane Austen and the most provocative research essay about NYC history. Let me help you get your ideas on the page.

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

I have a master's degree in journalism from NYU and have spent my professional life researching, writing and editing. I used to work in magazines and on newspapers as a reporter and editor. I researched my first book alone. For two years now, I've taught writing, reading, research and English at colleges in New York, teaching freshman as well as mature age students. I've tutored both children and adults individually for years. Would love to help!
