Whether your child is just learning their ABCs, needs help improving their reading comprehension at the high school level, or is somewhere in between, I want to help them improve their skills and develop a life-long love of learning. I teach basic reading skills to younger students. I also work with older students to help them read more quickly and retain information better. I help them pinpoint their learning style as well as personal hangups that make reading difficult or un-enjoyable.

About Emily

I hold a B.A. in Communications from Thomas Edison State University. I have been tutoring elementary through high school students for two years. I aim to not only help my students gain proficiency in their subjects but also to share my love of learning with them and to teach them skills that will

Emily is a wonderful teacher. She is always well prepared and pays close attention to the student's progress. She is good at adding challenges systematically. It has been a great experience for my daughter taking the writing lessons.

Our family LOVES Miss Emily! She has tutored our son and daughter (both of whom are students with special needs) in multiple subjects. Miss Emily is soft-spoken yet firm, and she makes learning fun. I highly recommend Emily as a tutor!

I have been studying with Prajakta for 3months now once per week. My HIndi was basic words I strung together in my own way. Prajakta has been patient with me, trying to undo years of bad Hindi is not an easy task! I can now form simple sentences correctly, ask simple questions and I am enjoying all that I am learning. Her lessons are always fun and challanging for me. I dont feel embarassed if I make a mistake, she explains why my answer is incorrect until I understand it:) I look forward to one day being able to have a small converstaion in Hindi!
Vidya Kotval
Ms Prajakta is a wonderful Hindi teacher - my son has a renewed interest and in just a few weeks able to converse and understand - thank you
Ben
I have been taking classes with Prajakta for one month and after that time I have already learned a lot. She is knowledgeable and kind, yet firm in just the right sort of way that one feels motivated and inspired to continue. Thank you for helping me reach my goal of speaking and understanding Hindi.

Ally is a great teacher. She is very kind and patient.
Kai
Ally has been a great friend of mine for 3 years now. Knowing that Ally is patient, kind, and intelligent I made sure that she would be the perfect tutor for my nephew. He’s in fourth grade and has struggled in both math and English. Ever since Ally has been tutoring him I have seen a change in his attitude towards his work and his confidence as well. I would highly recommend Ally to be anyone’s tutor. She’s going to always make sure that she’s helpful, but pushes you to understand the material without giving you the answers. 5 stars across the board!

“I like my sessions with Ms. Adams because she keeps me active and helps me to think deeper. She makes me slow down too and that helps me to understand what I’m reading”

Ms. Adams challenges my daughter, and I love it. I see her growth. She still has some work to do on her own, but Ms. Adams is definitely giving her the tools. I refer her to everyone I know looking for the same for their children.

"Awesome tutor! Breaks down concepts to make it easily digestible and works with your schedule. He gives you great tips that you can't learn from a book. He is very laid back and that helps with the crazy chaos of MCAT studying. Overall, well rounded in the subjects of the MCAT and would work with him again in the future if I needed. I would defintely recommend him for future MCAT test takers."

"In our limited time together, Colin effectively helped me to prepare and be ready for the AP Calculus exam. He was able to cover any topic that I had questions on, and in great detail; he always explained each step of every problem thoroughly, not leaving anything out of the picture.

Another thing worth mentioning is Colin's passionate approach to teaching. He would always go about each lesson with unmistakable enthusiasm, showing that even calculus could be fun, if you were willing to see it as so. He was also always willing to go all the way with any problem, even if it went over the time limit; he wanted to make sure that I had no questions or concerns about any topic, no matter how complex it might have been. So, all in all, if you are looking for a suitable calculus tutor, Colin is certainly a very worthy option!"
