About Emily

I have been a math teacher for the past 10 years. I have taught 9th grade algebra and 5th grade math. I also have experience being a Special Education Case Manager. I am passionate about helping all students learn and achieve. I tutor students who are struggling in a subject, as well as students to need academic enrichment.

I am able to obtain my own Common Core materials for tutoring. I would be willing to meet in a public space (such as a library), in your home, or in mine. I would be willing to continue tutoring through the academic school year. I have experience working with children of all ages, and pride myself on being able to teach students with different learning styles.

I have been teaching Elementary Math for the past eight years. I am very familiar with the new Common Core standards that are now in place in PA. I teach a multitude of students, ranging from students several years below grade level to students several years above grade level.

I obtained my Master's Degree in Elementary and Special Education at LaSalle University and completed coursework in the most effective ways to teach English/Language Arts.

Please contact me to learn more about me and my tutoring schedule for the summer.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

I have been an elementary/special education teacher for the past 10 years. I have extensive experience teaching and tutoring students with ADD and ADHD, both medicated and unmedicated. I know that I have the skills and tools necessary to help students with ADD and ADHD thrive academically.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have been a general and special education teacher for the past 10 years. I have taught students on the spectrum in an inclusion setting. I also have experience pushing into an ASD classroom and supporting. I have my certification in elementary and special education (K-12).

Common Core

I am the Lead Math teacher at my school. As such, I have studied in depth the new Common Core standards. I have an understanding of which content needs to be mastered in which grade level. Additionally, I understand how each grade level builds upon the previous year. I believe that I can help students master this content. Additionally, I have experience explaining the new common core standards to parents and helping them to understand the multitude of changes that are now happening in education.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught at an Elementary School in Philadelphia for the past 8 years. I have experience teaching a variety of subjects, including math, reading, spelling, handwriting, and study skills. I have experience working with students from pre-k through the 6th grade. I am well versed in Common Core Knowledge and what skills should be mastered within each grade level.

Handwriting

I have extensive experience teaching writing and handwriting, including cursive. I also have experience teaching handwriting to students with gross and fine motor delays. I believe that I can improve the handwriting of students at different ages and different stages of development.

Homeschool

I have been an elementary/special education teacher for the past 10 years. I have extensive experience tutoring students who are homeschooled or completing cyberschool coursework. I have tutoring homeschoooled students from kindergarten through high school.

Praxis

I had to take Praxis Exams to become a teacher, and scored in the top 3 percent of individuals who took the same subject tests that I did. I have been teaching for the past 10 years and have done test prep for a multitude of state and national tests.

Reading

I have been teaching 5th grade in Philadelphia for the past 8 years and have experience with a number of different curricula.

SAT Reading

I have experience preparing students for the SAT and other state and national assessments.

Study Skills

I have been an Elementary School teacher for 8 years. I have experience as a Special Education Case Manager, where I worked with students on organization and study skills. We worked on how to make flashcards, different strategies to memorize content (such as spelling words and basic math facts), and time management skills. I feel confident that students will leave me empowered to take control of their own studying and feel confident to create a study schedule that works for them and their personal schedule.
