About Emily

I loved school as a child, and still do love to learn. My love of learning and education is what drives me every day in my own life. Even losing some of my hearing never made me falter as I work towards my Early Childhood Education degree. I understand the obstacles that can be there for some learners - disability or not, some times school just gets tough! Through dedication and hard work, even the toughest obstacles can be conquered.

My dream is to teach grades K-6 one day, and what better way to supplement that dream while I am working on my degree, than to tutor that same age group?

Reading is my first love. I taught myself how to read at a very young age, with the occasional help from Hooked on Phonics when I struggled with a concept.

I loved reading so much, I began to write. I had dreams of being published, which meant many hours scanning my work for grammar, punctuation, spelling, and format errors. I put in enough work, and with some perseverance, I am actually a published poet, and I hope to help my students to follow their own dreams.

Study skills are one of my specialties! From time management strategies and improved note-taking, to exam preparation and concentration advice, I have tips for it all.

I lost some of my hearing in the fall of 2014. I lipread, and know basic American Sign Language. I understand how hard it can be, to try to learn in a world made for hearing people.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you on the road to academic successes and making some dreams come true!
