About Emily

Hey ya'll! I'm a friendly, educated individual with a love for teaching. I'm easy to talk to, patient, and my main goal is to help people achieve whatever goals they have in mind. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English and Sociology, and I studied piano and martial arts from the age of five to eighteen. I have experience teaching in both fields. But enough about my qualifications, let's get down to the nitty gritty: experience.

I have extensive experience in teaching/tutoring as I have 40+ hours tutoring on Wyzant alone. I have also worked as a tutor before discovering this site, volunteered in the first grade fine arts segment at my local church for seven summers in a row. Also, after achieving the rank of first dan in Tae Kwon Do, I taught/tutored students at the local martial arts studio for three years several times a week. The age range was anywhere from five to fourteen-year-olds. Once in college, I worked unofficially as an English, Psychological Statistics, and Sociology tutor for classmates during my four years.

Now, why do I want to tutor? I love people, and I love learning. It's as simple as that. Sure, I love the flexibility of it, and we all have to make a living... but at the root of it, I'm here to help you. I want you to succeed. I will short myself before I ever dream of shortchanging you, and I will go out of my way to make sure you get where you want to be.

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.

Piano

I was instructed in piano and music theory by two private instructors from the age of five to eighteen. After that, I entered college on a partial music/academic scholarship and did two years in the music program. While there I studied ear training, music history, theory, and participated in the university's choral ensemble.

Sociology

I graduated from University with a dual degree in English and Sociology. While in school I worked as a sociological researcher, along with faculty, on a multi-city project that investigated mental wellness. I continue my sociological studies post-graduate.
