About Emily

I am a full-time tutor serving the Dallas/North Dallas area, and nationwide via online tutoring. I have almost 10 years experience, and take a student centered approach to teaching. I believe that when someone seeks a tutor, they are seeking not only knowledge, but also comprehensive guidance for their study. I focus my students on how to study as well as providing the knowledge and detail of their subject area. I write most of my own curriculum, and adapt my materials to individual needs.

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 available to help with a quick math problem, or additional questions that come up in-between lessons.

I specialize in standardized testing (ACT/SAT, TEAS/HESI, GED), as well as pre-nursing (TEAS/HESI, Program Applications, Biology, Microbiology, Anatomy/Physiology, Algebra, CNA/EMT Programs, and many others). I also teach Pre-Algebra/Algebra, Biology, English, Composition, Reading/Writing, and Elementary Education. I work with students in all levels of education from Kindergarten through college.

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 and become academically independent.

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!

Microbiology

I work regularly with nursing and pre-nursing students in Microbiology courses. I find this material fascinating, and love to help students organize this complex class in a manner that makes it easier for them to study and master the material!

Study Skills

School support (or study skills) is one of my very favorite types of tutoring! The foundation of a students success is based on these skills, and it is imperative that students acquire and sharpen them. Study skills include taking effective notes, organizing information, completing tasks and assignments on time, and maintaining a healthy study schedule. As a school support tutor, I work with students to stay on schedule, complete work accurately and on time, and retain information. I help students in the specific areas they are struggling academically, as well as monitoring their overall progress and instilling healthy and efficient study habits.
It never ceases to amaze me how much more students enjoy school (and even homework) when they are organized, and know how to stay on track!

TEAS

I am a full time tutor and spend most of my time working with the TEAS. I am one of very few tutors across the country who truly specializes in all sections of this exam. I have my own curriculum that features the most important aspects of the testing material. I send 6-8 students per month to the exam, and take the exam myself every couple of months. This allows me to keep an accurate idea of what's on the test, and adjust my curriculum constantly. It also allows me to focus on areas of greatest importance so that we get the most points out for the time we put in. Each of these things is an amazing advantage to my students! Over the past 9 years, I have extensively studied the format used on the TEAS. I work with my students on understanding exactly how the questions are written, the thought process required, how to manage time limits, and how to effectively use the scratch paper.

Due to the high volume of students I work with, my TEAS tutoring takes place online utilizing the online learning platform. My students receive a copy of notes (ahead of time) for each section we cover, and I go through and explain the subject matter on the mutual whiteboard. We discuss overall understanding and context, areas of particular interest, and test questions found in each area. I ensure my students understand the material, have the needed tools to remember the information, and know what types of questions to expect. I work through subject matter with my students in order of prevalence. In other words, we start with the things that account for the most total points and work outward. In addition to providing the learning materials for the TEAS, I also offer my TEAS students guided planning for study, and ongoing support in between tutoring times.

If you are looking for an comprehensive tutoring program to fully prepare you for all aspects of the TEAS, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
