Masters in Secondary English Education
ExperienceI taught middle & high school English Language Arts for five years at the Dayton Regional STEM School (a public school with gifted as well as IEP students), where I created curricula mostly focusing on writing as well as 'good student skills' like accountability, technology, and self-advocacy. During that time, I was proud to be rated "Accomplished" during my evaluations, which is the highest grade possible. Before moving to Ohio, I ran my own tutoring business in Jacksonville, Florida. As a tutor, I focused mostly on writing and organization skills (like managing an agenda and staying on top of deadlines), but I also worked with some of my students on their math homework, biology studying, and social studies assignments, as needed. Before my tutoring business, I taught English in South Korea, and before that, I completed my Masters in secondary English language arts education at Northwestern University.
Qualifications: I have a Masters in secondary English LA education (Northwestern University), a current Ohio professional license for ELA grades 7-12, experience working with students on IEPs and 504s (including processing delays, ADD, autism spectrum, and more), experience working with gifted students, and ESOL training through Project:READ in Dayton, Ohio.
Teaching specialties: My personal passions include Writing (organizing, research, pre-writing, proofreading, etc.), Communication Skills (presentation, active listening, conflict resolution), Organization (agenda habits, time management, folder & backpack systems), and Study Skills (research methods, note-taking techniques, focus behaviors).
***Here's what some of my students and their parents have said about me over the years!
"It means a lot to me that you look at each individual student and give them feedback. I believe my writing has gotten much better over this year." -- 7th grade STEM student
"Your continued, focused, gentle guidance of my son has been among our greatest gifts." -- middle school parent
"My favorite thing about you is you’re always happy and always offering to help to people and you always try no matter what." -- 7th grade STEM student
"Ms. Emerie is an extremely gifted tutor, after only a few sessions with her I noted an increase in my grade, and confidence in writing. She helped me understand how to express myself on paper and made me feel confident in all of language arts, from writing essays to reading comprehension. My experience in working with her has been nothing but a joy and benefit. I looked forward to my tutoring sessions." -- 8th grade tutoring client
HobbiesAs a teacher, my approach is patient, warm, and attentive. I think the best educational relationship comes first from understanding the student well - their strengths, challenges, and personal goals. Not every student's goal is to make honor roll; for some, the goal is to complete every homework assignment on time, or simply to get out of a failing pattern on written assignments. My strength (and personal philosophy) as an educator is to meet my students where they are. That's the only way to create positive change! Thanks to my experience working with students at all levels in a public school, I am able to create customized lessons and activities to address each student's individual needs and learning styles.
I also run my own photography & design business, and do some educational consulting on the side. I'm married, and we are the loving owners of 2 beautiful cats!
