About Emily

I am going into my fourth year as a certified teacher. In the past, I have worked as a 6th grade Language Arts Instructional Specialist and have helped augment learning in 6th grade Math, Science and History. I have also worked in a 4th and 5th grade classroom as a Special Education teacher as well as a Kindergarten and 1st grade Special Education teacher. A majority of my experience has been with students with learning disabilities, other health impairments and Autism.

I love working with students until they reach that "lightbulb" moment. I work to make learning applicable to real-life in order to create a student who genuinely loves to learn. The best thing about being a tutor is being able to work one on one with a student. Being able to cater exactly to the interests of the students makes learning and teaching so enjoyable for me. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Please feel free to contact me with any further questions you have about my qualifications. I am available full-time this summer as well as part-time after school for the 2015-2016 school year.

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.
