About Emily

I have a bachelor's degree from Wellesley College in Modern European History and master's degrees in Global Studies and Early Modern History from Leipzig University in Germany and Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. In addition, I have experience tutoring high school and college students in both history and German.

There is nothing I love more than learning and sharing what I know about history! Tutoring is wonderful because it gives me the opportunity to bring history alive for students, some of whom may never have viewed the subject as anything more than a list of dates to memorize. History can and should be fun to learn, and that is my goal going into each and every lesson I teach. I want to make history memorable and exciting for my students.

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.
