About Emily

I have been tutoring professionally for over 10 years, in the United States and abroad. I have expertise in all verbal portions of the SAT and ACT (Reading Comprehension, Grammar and Writing), as well as English Language Arts, writing skills, Reading Recovery, Hebrew, Bible Studies and more. I use a variety of educational technologies and methods to ensure that my lessons are engaging as well as challenging.

I have helped countless students improve their SAT scores and go on to be accepted to their colleges of choice. I believe that students should feel confident in their abilities, and I give my students clear, nurturing instruction to ensure that they fully comprehend the material and are able to tackle it independently. I have worked extensively with differential teaching methods and in special education. Each student is unique, and requires a different approach to learning; I create tailor-made curricula to fit my students' academic and emotional needs and ensure that they reach their goals.

I believe in transparency, and will provide monthly progress reports to parents so that you can track your child's progress. My goal is to not only help my students succeed, but to make sure they have fun doing it!

I am fluent in Hebrew, and have spent 3 years as a Hebrew language teacher in several schools on the West Coast. I use the "ivrit b'ivrit" approach, an immersion approach which includes learning about the cultural and social aspects of the language in addition to the structure.

I have helped countless students over the years improve their SAT and ACT scores and go on to get accepted to the colleges of their choice. I have a methodical, clear methodology in exam prep which gives my students the confidence they need to succeed independently. In reading and writing, I maintain a structured approach integrated with dynamic, engaging tools to pass on not only understanding but a love of literature and writing.

I believe that students learn best when they are challenged and enjoying themselves. I will work together with you to achieve your goals and give you the tools you need to gain confidence and succeed.
