About Emily

I am an experienced private tutor teaching several different subjects. I am passionate about teaching, and I, myself, adore the learning process!

I find passion in connecting with students, targeting their needs, and achieving their version of success. Every student is entirely unique and each teaching experience holds its own outcomes. My tutoring begins with the goals and hopes of the student. They establish their goals, and I write a lesson plan that will get them accomplished efficiently. I work with students current materials (notes, homework, or course materials) and also bring to the table my own tools and information to provide a well-rounded learning experience. I am always open to helping with a quick math problem, or additional questions that come up in-between lessons.

I tutor standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GED, TEAS, and HESI. I have years of experience in this area and truly enjoy this type of tutoring. I give students valuable test taking advice and help them get to know the material, rules, and format of their particular test. During my first meeting, I assess students with a comprehensive test which I use as my jumping off point. I also discuss the students goals, concerns, and results of past or similar tests. I develop a general impression of the students unique learning style during this meeting. I write customized lesson plans in each area targeting the students strengths, weaknesses, and individual needs. We move through the material at a pace appropriate for the student. It is exciting to see students go from nervous and concerned to relaxed and excited for test day!

I tutor biology, anatomy and physiology, and microbiology. I have excelled in these areas and find the subject matter purely fascinating. I love working with students to help them develop an understanding of scientific material and its implications in our world!

I offer tutoring in English, writing, and spelling. These subjects offer an important foundation for all studies, and I like to help students secure knowledge and comfort in these areas.

I also offer comprehensive tutoring (all subjects) for elementary students. This is such an important time for learning and elementary students are such wonderful listeners and learners! I find motivation in these young minds and their desire to learn and discover new material!

I believe tutoring can be an essential part of a student's education. Any student may excel at any subject given the right tools and guidance. My method of tutoring directly reflects this belief. The ultimate tutoring situation is one in which I can not only provide information to the students but also resources in which they may find their own information or further their own education.

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.

ACT Math

The Math section of the ACT Exam is extremely complex, as it involves material from multiple different math subject areas.

I focus my ACT Math lessons on two things:

1) completing the problems on the page and ensuring an understanding of necessary steps to complete for each type of problem.
2) rebuilding essential fundamental skills that make up the problems, ensuring students have all necessary skill sets to execute more complicated problems

Developing fundamental and advanced skill sets for execution of the ACT leads to improved test scores, as well as a more comprehensive understanding in current math classes.

Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary Education is extremely important. This is the time when students learn the basic skills that will set up the rest of their education. I have worked with Elementary (k-6) students in Math, Reading, Writing, Phonics and Spelling. I evaluate students specific weaknesses and create a customized lesson plan. This makes learning not only fun and interesting, but also targets the areas each student needs most, and avoids wasting precious time where they are not struggling. I love working with Elementary students because they are at their learning peak, and they grow right in front of my eyes!

TEAS

Nursing/allied health exams such as the TEAS are very important to the admission process. Schools often establish a minimum score for admission, and higher scores can improve a students chances of admission.

I have years of experience working with the TEAS test as well as other Nursing/Allied Health entrance exams.

The TEAS exam contains 4 sections; Reading, Language Usage, Mathematics and Science. I use methods of study which integrate these subjects into day to day life, and day to day nursing. For example, when reviewing the Language Usage section, I encourage students to visualize themselves, in their profession, speaking to a co-worker or patient. This puts a realistic spin on the material,and makes it much easier for students to remember! When working through the Mathematics section, I provide students with examples where the math might be used in their future position. This helps bring home the importance of the information, and, again, make it more memorable.

Working with me before the TEAS test allows students to not only master the material on the test, but also the mindset, and skill-sets necessary in their future career!
